Did you know martial arts is not only great for children but great for adults as well? Most often martial arts is associated with self-defense, however there are many more benefits than just learning how to defend yourself.  Listed below are just a few ways martial arts is of great benefit to adults.

Weight Management 

A typical martial arts class burns 500 calories. Adding martial arts to your life can absolutely help you lose weight.

Improved Heart Health

Research has found the only real way to improve the status of cardio health is by doing activities that stress the heart or elevate your heart rate.  Getting thirty minutes a day of a cardio exercise is a great way to stay healthy and help lower your chances of a stroke or heart attack. Martial arts is a great activity to stay healthy.

Increased Muscle Tone

Martial arts training doesn’t just burn calories and improve cardio health but it also builds muscle mass. The more muscle you have the more calories you actually burn and the more toned your body will look.

Improved Reflexes

Research shows practicing martial arts improves reflexes and having better reflexes can help in all aspects of life. Whether you play sports, drive a vehicle or play with your children, faster reflexes can definitely have a positive impact on one’s life.

Improved State of Mind  

Researchers have found participating in a regular exercise routine is one of the best ways to improve your mood. Martial arts is a great activity to release endorphins which can improve your state of mind up to four hours after you are done training.
