Martial Quotations

When I was in school, martial arts made you a dork, and I became self-conscious that I was too masculine. I was a 16-year-old girl with ringworm and cauliflower ears. People made fun of my arms and called me 'Miss Man.' It wasn't until I got older that I realized: These people are idiots. I'm fabulous.
Ronda Rousey

There is a difference between a fighter and a martial artist. A fighter is training for a purpose: He has a fight. I'm a martial artist. I don't train for a fight. I train for myself. I'm training all the time. My goal is perfection. But I will never reach perfection.
Georges St-Pierre

Martial arts is not about fighting; it's about building character.
Bo Bennett

I see martial arts as moving forms of meditation. When you're sparring or drilling techniques, you can't think of anything else.
Joe Rogan

For me, the martial arts is a search for something inside. It's not just a physical discipline.
Brandon Lee
