Stress – With everything that is happening in this country and around the world; the stress level of the average person is dramatically higher than in the past. Unmanaged stress can be extremely detrimental to our health, our relationships and even our job productivity. As you all know, there aren’t many things that can reduce stress better than an intense martial arts class.
Obesity – Martial arts is fitness with a purpose. Fitness has three components: strength, flexibility and endurance. Martial arts training demands a balance between the three. Therefore, a person who trains in martial arts will find their weakest areas greatly improved. And, because they develop greater balance of strength, flexibility and endurance, children will be less likely to injure themselves while participating in other athletic activities.
Athletic Enhancement – There is a reason why every professional sports team in every major sport supplements their training with martial arts. Martial arts training offers several advantages. It is amazingly effective at enhancing general coordination because it uses every part of the body in a balanced way. Upper body, lower body, right side, left side, forward movement, lateral movement and rotational movement are all included in martial arts training.
Relationships – With so many screeens in front of them at any given time, many modern families need more face-to-face social interaction. At the dojo, students find themselves surrounded by positive, high quality, encouraging people (instructors and co-students alike) who help to bring out their best and keep them focused on the prize.
