Silence is an important aspect, not just in martial arts.

Why you might ask, is silence important?

Here is why I believe it is important.

There is a fight or war going on to influence your thoughts, more specifically, to influence your spending habits.

From TV to radio and visually with newspapers and magazines, junk mail to billboards; you are in combat terms "Being bombarded"

Silence and practicing it is your secret weapon against it.

Now in silence, you will be able to listen to your own thoughts without noise made by others trying to sell you things, that you probably don't need or you can very happily live without.

Music is how many people try to drown out the outside world, but the lyrics and music is still influencing your thoughts and emotions.

Silence is the only sure way of tuning out the world and tuning in to yourself for a change.

Noise pollution is real, silence is pollution free.

Silence will be a new experience for many, with a little time and practice; (Just like the song) Silence is golden.

This is a part of Silent killer ninja skills; just kidding.

Silence is a good thing. Its nice at times to sit and read a book with no background noise in the house.

But, we live in a noisy world, so its important to be able to focus through the noise, and learn to attune our senses to what is important and what may not be.

Silence can be associated with reading.

Silence can also be associated with meditation.

Silence can also be associated with peacefulness.

Silence is not often promoted, whereas sound always is.

Angry people are very often noisy vocally, when happy the sound of music fills the air; booing vs cheering.

Sound effects our emotions also our nervous system; in a positive or negative way; silence allows us to become in touch with our own emotions, as well as balancing our nervous system promoting inner harmony.
