Practicing Martial Arts is already a fun activity, and here are some ways to get even more fun out of your training:
Reaching Goals is Fun! Setting goals for yourself gives you something to reach for, whether it’s promoting to your next rank or learning a new hand technique or an advanced kick. When you make it to your target, it feels good, and it’s fun to know you’re making progress!
Overcoming challenges is rewarding and can add fun to your workouts. Challenges can be things like doing a certain number of kicks within a certain amount of time, kicking higher targets, or adding to your rounds of shadowboxing. Challenges should be hard at first, and then as you work through them and get better, you’ll get the satisfaction and feeling of accomplishment that comes with success – and moving forward is fun!
Work Out at Home

Work Out Together
Having a workout partner can help your training, because you can watch each other’s techniques and help each other to make improvements!
