The Shoe Rack Theory

One of the first things students do when they enter the United Martial Arts Center is to remove their shoes or sneakers before stepping out on the exercise floor. There are many reasons to do so – martial arts are performed in bare feet, and shoes can tear up and dirty the exercise floor.

But there is another, very specific reason for removing one’s shoes, known as the Shoe Rack Theory. The theory states that as the student removes his or her shoes, he or she mentally places all distractions, fears, stress, and negative energy from everyday life into the shoes and leaves them behind, so that they can have a more productive, positive, and focused martial arts experience.

It’s been said by those who embrace the Shoe Rack Theory that oftentimes all of the negativity they leave in their shoes is gone after a solid, energetic workout on the floor. If you’d like to test the Shoe Rack Theory yourself, please call the United Martial Arts Center today at 978-762-0454 to schedule a free introductory lesson.
