Re: Measuring if/how martial arts helps one become a better person

Facing stress and adversity tends to, at a minimum, show how one faces stress and adversity. Practicing martial arts is one way a modern person with a relatively comfortable life can deliberately put themselves in a stressful situation and observe how they, themselves, react - and then, if they wish, work on controlling that reaction.
