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.

Adding muscle tone is also crucial for weight loss. The Mayo Clinic explains: “As you gain muscle, your body begins to burn calories more efficiently. The more toned your muscles, the easier it is to control your weight.” Participating in a Tiger Schulmann’s kickboxing program will tone up your entire body, making it easier for you to reach your target weight.

Stress relief

“Anxiety is a powerful trigger for weight gain,” warns Prevention. While eliminating anxiety completely isn’t always possible, there are ways to control it.
