“There are definitely aggressive components of martial arts,” says Yuri
Rassovsky, a professor in the department of psychology at Bar-Ilan
University. “But the philosophical foundation of traditional martial arts
balances that out, teaching a deep interpersonal respect.”
A recent study published in Scientific Reports in which Dr. Rassovsky
served as the lead researcher showed that martial arts increased the
production of oxytocin, a hormone linked to behaviors including trust,
cooperation and social and romantic bonding, in both beginner and
advanced practitioners.
