Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell has one of the greatest knockout records in the UFC.

Nobody wants a training partner who’s negative all the time. If you want someone who can boost your morale even after several rounds of intense sparring, Sagittarius is your guy. In martial arts, you’ll always come across challenges that will test you both mentally and physically. Sagittarius will be there to help you overcome these challenges and give you that much needed pep talk.


2) They’re honest.

Sagittarius isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. If you’re looking for a teammate who’ll sugarcoat all their opinions, don’t ask a Sagittarius. But who wants to train with someone who isn’t honest or direct? You can always rely on Sagittarius to be forthcoming whenever you need to hear the truth.


3) They’re inquisitive. 

Being inquisitive is a great trait for any martial artist to have. It keeps you curious and open to learning new techniques, giving you the chance to become the best martial artist you could possibly be.


4) They’re clear thinkers. 

Sagittarius is all about seeing the big picture. They understand that being upset about unimportant things could never amount to anything substantial. Instead, they take what others have to say into consideration before acting out. They know they won’t be able to accomplish their goals if they keep on getting side-tracked by trivial, useless things.


5) They’re all about living a healthy lifestyle.

This trait is what makes Sagittarius so unstoppable, whether in the ring, cage, on the mats or in their daily lives.


7) They’re impulsive. 

Looking for a teammate who’ll join a tournament with a few weeks notice with you? Who’ll take a martial arts vacation with you? Look no further than a Sagittarius. Known for being impulsive, it is also this trait that makes them quite easy to get along with.


8) They love a good challenge.
