You’ve signed up to learn Shotokan Karate through the Global Martial Arts University. You pay your fee and you’ve begun to watch videos and practice. Wouldn’t it be nice to know what hurdles YOU face studying martial arts online due to YOUR specific personality type-that other people who have a personality type different from yours, do NOT have to deal with or face? Another way to look at this; how does your type of personality get in the way of advancing in online martial arts training? Furthermore; how can you leverage the benefits of YOUR personality type to maximize returns and advancement in online martial arts training? The big question is: Is understanding your personality type key to excelling and progressing, and not dropping out of, online martial arts training? I say “Yes. Understand yourself and your chances of advancement in online martial arts training are significantly greater.”
