8 Reasons Why Virgos Make The Best Martial Artists

If you’re looking for the qualities of a great martial artist, you can definitely find it in a Virgo. Considered to be the biggest workaholic of all the Zodiac signs, there’s no doubt that they are truly dedicated to their goals.

Many famous martial artists, including the legendary Rocky Marciano, Juan Manuel Marquez and Dan Henderson are true examples of the hard working Virgo. UFC fighters Leandro “Brodinho” Issa, Tarec Saffiedine, Mirko “Crocop” Filipovic, Takanori Gomi, Renato “Babalu” Sobral, and 2x BJJ World Champion Teco Shinzato are just some of the martial artists born under this sign, exemplifying the great qualities that make Virgos such great martial artists.

Without further ado, here are 8 Reasons Why Virgos Make The Best Martial Artists:

Virgos are always deadest on accomplishing their goals. No matter how trivial the task may seem to others, Virgo always makes sure he doesn’t miss a single detail. He always wants to know what’s going on and hates being surprised – this leaves very little room for error, which is perfect for the critical Virgo.

 

 2) They are perfectionists.

Virgos know what they want – whether it’s with regards to martial arts or their daily lives, they want to make sure that everything is perfect before they commit to anything. You can rely on Virgo to deal with the nitty-gritty when no one else will. For Virgo, if it isn’t perfect, he won’t accept it.

 

3) They are very analytical.

Whether it’s a new technique that they’ve just learned or a problem they can’t seem to solve, a Virgo will analyze all the details presented him before anything else. From the tiniest details to glaring ones, Virgo always knows exactly what’s going on because he’s wired that way.

 

 4) They are very organized.

If you’re looking for a sparring partner who won’t smell like sweat even after two rounds of grappling, Virgo is your guy. As particular as he is with learning details, he is the exact same way when it comes to personal hygiene and orderliness. In fact, you can expect his bag to be the neatest and most organized in the gym!

 

5) They are hardworking.

Nobody understands the value of hard work more than a Virgo. You can expect him to be the last person to leave the mat or put in an extra few minutes of strength and conditioning after a grueling training session. He knows that it is that extra effort you put in when everyone else is worn out that makes all the difference.

 

6) They are reliable.

Do you have any pressing issues that you can’t resolve? Did you forget to bring an extra shirt to change out of after training? You can rely on Virgo to help you find the solution to these problems. Whenever there’s a critical situation, Virgo’s level-headedness and analytical mind will undoubtedly come up with a well-thought out suggestion!

 

7) They are trustworthy.

He will always help you to the best of his abilities, offering his logic and clear headedness when you can’t seem to think straight. He will also be there whenever you need him – whether it’s to corner you for a fight or lend you his BJJ notebook.

 

 8) They rarely complain.

Even after a tiring training session, you can expect to see Virgo cracking a joke or cheering his teammates on even if all he wants to do is sleep. Virgo will always push himself to the limit without complaint because it is his nature. He knows the value of hard work, discipline and maintaining a positive attitude. You’ll never hear him say, “I quit!”

 

If you’re looking for a teammate with a winning attitude, who is ready to persevere through tough times, someone you can count on as a friend – you can find all these qualities and more in a Virgo. They truly have the attributes of a great martial artist, inside and out!
