There is much more to martial arts than "being alpha" and impressing people with your physical prowess or accomplishments, and practicing martial arts can help your social skills and lessen anxiety. There is carryover from martial arts to "inner game" and how one thinks.
This is SOOOOO fucking true. Listen, martial arts alone will not get you girls but it will improve your ability to relax around others and the confidence thing.....your confidence will literally skyrocket. You know that fight or flight feeling you get when your about to scrap that makes you hella nervous? Guess what? The nervous feeling you get when talking to a women...IT'S THE SAME SHIT! Only a different situation. But in the 7 months Iv'e been training my ability to talk to women and not give a fuck has improved tremendously. I expect and rejection like I do taking a physical blow. Sometimes I'll get hit. It's inevitable. But guess what sometimes I do the hitting AKA It'll eventually work with practice. Another good thing is women for the most part will feel protected when in your presence which is another upside for you my friend!!!
It helps your confidence and relaxes you, which in turn will help your game IMO.
