Friendships are an important part of our lives, not only because friends help us handle tension, resolve problems, cope with traumas and reduce our stress but they also play an important role in our decision-making and our mental health.
At Defence Lab Swindon academy, making friends and fostering relationships create a huge impact on building an inspiring culture and nurturing environment.
When we work with our partners in a martial arts class it might be a little frightening but since we have a common goal in the class, we create a positive experience which eventually leads to friendship.
We start building trust in this person while sharing these moments, then we begin to become comfortable with opening up and becoming vulnerable.
This supposed weakness begins to build our confidence.
It’s exciting for most people to meet new friends at Defence Lab Swindon Academy.
For members, meeting their new instructor, sparring partner, or meeting new people with the same goal and passion is very motivating.
These relationships we create lead to a relationship that is mutually beneficial us to since we gain knowledge from each other, learn from each other’s experiences, and enhance our communication skills.
Being able to interact gives us the chance to talk about our common interests like fitness, weight loss, training, and many more and this brings them closer to each other. Some have been together since they started.
Plus we start to socialise with them outside the academy such as meeting for drinks, or meals or even just going out and spending quality time together.
Defence Lab Swindon helps support each other, raise each other and empower one another to achieve their common goals.
It’s encouraging to have a buddy that can relate to you and your experiences because you’ll have someone to push you to your limits, encourage you to do better, and have someone to talk to when bad days come.
Friendships aren’t always limited to two students. In a martial arts class, students support each other, work toward their goals together, and develop their physical and mental strength together. Students and their coaches often develop a bond that resembles a family.
This support group will be the foundation of your journey as a member and these people will give you the courage to keep on going despite the hardships. They will be there to help you when you decide to cultivate good habits like eating healthy or beginning a workout routine, in addition to keeping yourself motivated.

As a result, you can always rely on them to see the bright side of every situation and lift your spirits when you feeling down.
