Here’s Why You Should Train Martial Arts With Your Siblings

How close are you to your siblings? Well, if you wish to establish a solid relationship with your brother or sister, then you should consider training martial arts with them! Apart from the fact that you would be able to pick up essential self-defense skills, you and your siblings would also be leading an active lifestyle while progressing and growing together – be it as martial artists or people!

Have you been thinking of hitting a martial arts gym with your brother or sister? Today, Evolve Daily shares 5 Reasons Why You Should Train Martial Arts With Your Siblings:

1) Because it strengthens your bond

To be a well-rounded grappler, you should train no-gi as well.

Training martial arts together with your siblings is a great way to develop your relationship with them. This is because you would be spending quality time with them in the gym, working on becoming the best martial artists you can be!

If you think about it, training with your siblings actually creates more opportunities to meet up and spend time together – despite busy schedules – because you would have to plan your workout sessions in advance and set aside the time to actually attend the classes together. What’s more, the pockets of time before and after training would allow you to catch up with them and of course, this would help establish a deeper connection.


2) Because it is a great way to work towards goals together

Training with the heavy bag improves your technique and coordination. 

It doesn’t matter whether it’s Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu; when you train with your siblings, there’s no doubt that you would learn to function as a team – no matter how different you might be. After all, you would be learning, trying to master various techniques and ultimately working towards similar goals together.

What’s more, you wouldn’t have to worry about not being able to find a training partner to drill with before or after class – because your sibling will be there to work on those complex techniques with you! And the best part is that you can help each other to break down the more challenging techniques, depending on who picks it up faster.


3) Because you can motivate each other

BJJ is a great way to keep your kids active.

At some point of your martial arts journey, either you or your sibling would have moments of feeling unmotivated or disheartened. Well, the journey would not always be a smooth sailing one, but at the end of the day, you would have each other to count on for some encouragement.

Besides encouraging each other during trying times, you would also be there to celebrate all your victories together – whether it’s getting that next BJJ stripe or entering your first competition.


4) Because you’ll be getting into the best shape ever

Sparring helps you to understand the various techniques on a deeper level.

There’s no doubt that you and your brother or sister will get stronger – both physically and mentally – when you embark on a martial arts adventure together. After all, martial arts offers a host of benefits, such as boosting your fitness, building strength, toning your body, developing discipline and boosting confidence, among others.

Apart from that, training martial arts would increase your body’s endorphin production – so you would both not only look, but also feel great after every training session! So if you or your siblings are constantly stressed out, you might want to hit the gym for an intense training session to vent your frustrations and forget about your worries (for that hour at least!)


5) Because siblings that kick together, stick together

The Lee siblings have been training martial arts together since they were old enough to walk.

At the end of the day, it’s always better to have your sibling by your side – at every stage of your martial arts journey. This is because it’s way more satisfying to push and go beyond all kinds of limits as well as crush those goals together. After all, why go through it alone when you could be sharing all these awesome, ass kicking moments with your sibling?


So tell us, are you going to start training martial arts with your siblings?
