Veteran Uses Martial Arts To Ease His Mind During And After His Time In The Military

Martial Arts Comments Off 29

Veteran Rick Pulley has used martial arts to successfully combat his anxiety from his days in the military and from tragedy earlier in his life. When he was five he tragically witnessed his uncle get stabbed to death and later in life he served almost ten years in the Army. He’s seen some stuff to say the least and would be suffering pretty badly from anxiety if not for his continued training in martial arts. Pulley has now trained taekwondo for thirty three years and is currently a sixth degree black belt.
 
Pulley has always felt the need to know how to defend and protect himself. After the murders of both his uncle and mother as well as the time he spent in the military, he know’s all to well it’s the smart thing to be prepared. Now, he teaches martial arts too – he feels that not helping others help themselves would be a selfish thing not to do. He says he always refuses to let anyone leave any of his classes without at least learning one new thing each time. He says “it’s important to choose not to be a victim” because once you do it’s tough to get it to stop.
