For confidence, focus, and achieving anti-bullying tactics 100% Agree! And for anyone who has any questions feel free to ask. This is where Lila studies martial arts. She has been here for over 2 years now and as a parent I checked out about 4 other schools before deciding on this one. Very happy with our decision and Lila Loves it here!

Master Chris and the entire team are wonderful to work with. They really took the time to get to know our little guy. His concentration and focus have really improved over the last few months and his behavior at school has improved as well. Definetly worth the investment.

This is such a wonderful martial arts school. Everyone here is awesome! Both of my sons go here and really enjoy it and everything they learn. They do a great job teaching respect, perseverance and confidence. If you’re looking for a great place for you or your children, this is it!

Couldn't be happier with the training my daughter has received. She has learned so much! Most don't realize that besides the physical part there are so many mental aspects and life lessons that she has learned. The leadership abilities and confidence she has learned is something she could have never learned at this age. I am beyond thankful to Master Chris for everything we have and will continue to learn from the program!

It's always hard finding the right place that your child fits in to. We have had nothing but amazing experiences here, and my son (5 yrs) loves it! We started in the fall, and he looks forward to every class. The staff is amazing, and knows how to work well with children which is hard to find sometimes. They learn a lot of life lessons, respect, discipline, as well as self defense. We are so glad we came here!

5 Health & Fitness Benefits of Martial Arts for Men

 

If you are looking for a way to improve your health or get in better shape, you may not need to hit the gym. Instead, you should head to our martial arts school. Men’s martial arts could be the fitness solution that you have been searching for. Discover the benefits of martial arts for men’s health.

1. Improve Your Cardiovascular Health

Perhaps the greatest benefit of men’s martial arts is improved heart health. Doctors generally recommend between 20 and 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 3 to 5 days per week.

Martial arts will get you up off the couch. Whether are practicing at home or attending a men’s martial arts class, you can easily hit at least 20-minutes of cardio.

This gets your blood pumping and puts stress on your heart, allowing you to increase your heart health. With improved heart health also comes a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.

2. A Full Body Workout for Weight Loss and Fitness

Men’s martial arts can also provide a complete full body workout, helping with weight loss and overall fitness. You get a high-aerobic workout that targets quite a few different muscle groups.

Each martial arts session can help you burn additional calories, while also increasing your endurance. In fact, a typical hour-long session of men’s martial arts can burn about 500 calories. For those trying to lose weight, this could be all that you need to finally blast the fat in trouble areas, such as your abdominal region.

3. Improve Your Flexibility and Balance

By practicing men’s martial arts, you should be able to begin improving your flexibility and balance. You gain a better sense of balance, becoming more in tune with your body.

The various poses and moves that you will learn provide the advantage of increasing your flexibility, keeping you limber. In a way, this is similar to the benefits provided by yoga. You are extending your arms and legs, stretching, and performing aerobic moves that will help with your flexibility.

4. Increase Your Self Esteem with Men’s Martial Arts

As a final benefit to men’s martial arts, you can increase your self-esteem. This

is achieved in multiple ways.

By getting in better shape, you will feel better about your body. By learning self-defense techniques, you will have more confidence. This combination will have a tremendous impact on your self-esteem.

5. Gain Improved Focus and Concentration

Men’s martial arts is not just about self-defense. You are also learning how to be still and in tune with your body. This teaches focus and concentration.

You need to be able to observe your opponent and focus on how you can use their movement to your advantage. These are skills that carry through to everyday life, helping you with concentration.

These same benefits that lead to improved focus and concentration can also increase your mental clarity and leave you in a calm, relaxed mood.

Studies show that a men’s martial arts session can release endorphins that make you happy and content. This lasts for several hours after your workout is complete.

Start Practicing Men’s Martial Arts Today

Men’s martial arts can definitely help with your health and fitness. You can get a full body workout that helps increase your endurance, flexibility, focus, and self-esteem. You can also burn some calories, which can help you drop a few pounds while improving your overall fitness and cardiovascular health.

Movember is just around the corner, which means it is time to raise awareness about men’s health. This includes shedding light on cancer and mental health issues. By adding a new physical activity to your regular routine, you can focus on your own health and fitness.
