I had an interesting talk with a friend the other day. Ive been training for a few years now and I was just chatting with her on the latest goings on at the dojo. At one point she said she wasnt surprised that I liked martial arts and that it suited my personality. I hadnt really thought about it that way and always had it in my mind that martial arts could be for all personality types in the same sense that it suits all ages for both men and women. That started me to thinking ..does the martial arts attract certain personality types over others? Do all manner of personality types start out, but only a certain personalities stick with it? Would say a group of black belts have certain personality traits that you would not see so much in junior ranks, and are these traits learned through training or inherently a part of the person to begin with? I know some friends and I have joked around once in a while about type A personality black belts. Is there some truth to this do you think? Just thought this could be an interesting topic .thoughts?
