How Does Practicing Martial Arts Improve Your Health?

By Featured Stories No Comments

Martial arts, a sport that encompasses various fighting styles and prepares individuals to defend themselves, naturally improves self discipline and self confidence. But did you know that it offers several health benefits as well? Here are just a few of the ways that engaging in this activity can lead you on a path towards a healthy lifestyle:

Health benefits of martial arts

Cardiovascular health: Your cardiovascular system, which works to carry oxygen, nutrients and blood throughout the body, is comprised of your heart and blood vessels. Since a weak cardiovascular system can lead to experiences such as shortness of breath and exhaustion, it’s important to strengthen it as often as possible. The good news? Martial arts does just that being that it is an activity that exercises the heart and encourages it to work harder.

Weight loss: In order to lose weight, you must burn off more calories than you consume. And since martial arts classes are extremely active, you’ll be working to do so with every move you make. During a Tiger Schulmann’s martial arts class we’ll have you moving the whole time, which makes our programs a great place to start with your weight loss efforts.

Mood and stress relief: Feeling stressed after a long day of work? Martial arts can help you relieve some of those pent-up feelings! Additionally, it can improve your overall mood and make you feel happier through the release of endorphins that occurs with activity. And the best part is, what you feel as a result of practicing martial arts won’t only last during your time in the gym – it will follow you when you walk out the door too!

At Tiger Schulmann’s, all of our martial classes are an intense strength-building cardio workout. While our primary focus is to educate our students on the techniques needed to defend themselves, physical fitness is also highly integrated into each of our classes. Therefore, you’ll leave feeling healthier and in better shape than ever before.

Tiger Schulmann’s In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

By TSMMA Bethlehem No Comments

Tiger Schulmann's in Bethlehem, PennsylvaniaFor the past 25 years, Tiger Schulmann’s has been offering kickboxing, close­-range self defense, sparring and grappling classes to the community in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. With students ranging in age from 4­-60, programs are available for those at the beginner level all the way to black belts.

Robert Villafane Jr., who has been practicing martial arts for 30 years, leads Tiger Schulmann’s in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Just like all of our other martial arts school owners, Robert has made it a priority to acquire the best instructors in the business and works hard to engage with the local community.

For example, this location donates to local schools and other organizations, hosts free Bully Shield programs to schools and offers free Child Safe programs for preschool and elementary aged students. In fact, one of Robert’s most memorable experiences as a Tiger Schulmann’s owner involves a child safety fair that took place about 15 years ago.

“I brought together the local police, fire department and EMS to increase awareness of the safety personnel in the community. We had over 100 students participating in martial arts demonstrations outside of the school, the police gave a drug and alcohol resistance program, and we had a special visit from the Medivac helicopter, which landed right outside our school so students could see inside,” explains Robert.

So what’s next?

This August, our Bethlehem location will be holding an annual school picnic for both students and parents. Additionally, a Halloween party will be held in late October.
