No, competition is not for everyone. In fact, the term “Sport Martial Arts” is sort of an oxymoron. Competition is an excellent way to promote a particular martial art and help it gain popularity with the public. Additionally, sport martial arts allows a practitioner a way to balance realistic practice with safe every day training. This sportive practice can be done in the school or in public at large competitions.
