Yielding to the opponent’s attack means accepting their force and momentum. Some of the physical manifestations of yielding include being rooted and having strong legs that allow one to move while staying relaxed.

Northwest Fighting Arts explains that mental yielding involves being more aware. This heightened awareness allows one to see subtle reactions in other people and to access valuable information that can be used in everyday life.

The martial arts school also teaches students the importance of emotional yielding. This form of yielding also focuses on achieving a heightened state of self-awareness through conscious exploration, meditation practices, both static and moving.

Students will also be able to become more happy, overcome anxiety, stress and depression, improve their diet, and make better lifestyle choices.

The goal at Northwest Fighting Arts is to teach students lifelong fitness, stress relief techniques and how to defend themselves.

A satisfied student said: “Wonderful, accepting and inclusive place to learn martial arts. Instructors go out of their way to get to know you. Focus is on learning and excelling in a sustainable way, not on macho culture or on pushing too hard. Everyone I’ve worked with here, both instructors and students, has been supportive.”
