Tremendous financial resources have been regularly lost in team-buildings that are planned to achieve better integration of the teams and improvement of organizational effectiveness. Despite these efforts, the general results of the conventional teambuilding approaches are quite decent. Using the means of team dynamics analysis, this study investigates the negative effect of the team myths, as major reason for the teams’ failures. The present web survey found that most of the team-buildings tend to focus on intercommunication and team performance, while the main problems of the teams are the personal qualities of their members, strongly affected by different team myths. The followed experiment was designed to test how martial arts practice can overcome the negative effect of these wrong assumptions by creating strong personalities, able to better manage their team dynamics and thus, to increase the performance effectiveness. In addition to the justified recommendations of using different martial arts for teambuilding purpose, the study presents and tests a new vector 3-D model of team functioning, designed by the combined methods of astronavigation and organizational behavior.
