Martial Art of Self

Hosted ByAldin Hrvat

In this personal journey, I am re-defining what has mostly become Martial Arts for me in my mind and bringing it back to (my)Self – seeing where and how I can apply the essence of it into everyday moments and things in life.

A part of the Martial Art of Self process is investigating and re-defining the system and principles of martial arts, and bringing it back to (my)Self. I use martial arts to understand and expand myself as a being, as an individual.

Episode 14: Body-Respect & Body-Care

In this episode of the Martial Art of Self, we look at some dimensions of body-respect and body-care.

It has become mainstream to drive our bodies to the limit in an unnatural, and harmful pace, and way. Unfortunately, we mostly treat our body as a driving vessel for our self-interest, our desires, wants, and needs only.

We miss the fact that the body is one of the most important manifestation we have in our life that makes or breaks our physical life-quality. We live with our bodies day in and out. It is here from start to end. Through good, and bad. A true unconditional companion. Hence, we should treat it a lot better.

In this episode, I talk about how I became aware of treating my body ill with my martial arts training, and how I approached my training. I share a few of the viewpoints, and realizations that opened up for me when I looked at this point of how I treat my body through the process of self-inquiry in self-honesty.
