Martial arts is a high-aerobic workout that uses every muscle group in the body. Your stamina, muscle tone, flexibility, balance and strength will all improve through martial arts.
Maintain healthy weight
Due to the total-body nature of a martial arts workout, tons of calories are burned during every class. However, you’ll also find that your natural eating signals become better regulated so food cravings will disappear and you’ll eat less as a result
In martial arts you get to kick, punch and scream, which is a great stress release no matter what your age. In addition, the ancient practices of martial arts have a calming affect that melts the stress away.
Unlike any other form of exercise, with martial arts you learn potentially life-saving self-defense skills at the same time you are getting in shape.
Better self confidence
Due to the goal setting, positive encouragement and respect for values that are part of all martial arts programs.You become more comfortable in all situations – whether you’re in danger or simply doing a task that takes you beyond your comfort zone — and you’ll discover you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.
Mental Discipline and Focus
A certain amount of mental acuity and perseverance is required in martial arts, to remember and execute a series of moves or even to foil your opponent. Both the competitive element and the repetitive nature of many martial arts serves to refine your ability to focus and sustain mental concentration.
