Only recently have athletes begun to investigate the mental game. Psychological or spiritual development is not done to help the person, but is done to improve performance within the sport.

Martial art and sport can be the same, and have the same origin.
Both martial arts and sports evolved from the military arts. They are two different traditions.

What tradition are you part of?

This is a subjective judgement. It's possible for a person to be both athlete and martial artist. Generally their activity decides on what catagory they are.
