Martial arts is more than a way to learn self-defense. Whether you’re a child or an adult, beginner or experienced, martial arts is a fun way to get fit.
Martial arts, like Jiu-Jitsu, provides a full-body workout that is full of functional movements. This means that multiple muscle groups are working together to perform a specific skill. Through a good warm-up, skill and technique work, and partner drilling, you will perform a series of movements that altogether will contribute to an increase in your overall fitness.
In addition, because many of the moves you practice in martial arts are new to you, you will probably find yourself bending and twisting yourself into new positions, as well as developing strength in new ways. The result is an improvement in your flexibility, range of motion, and strength.
At the same time, if you’ve found yourself getting bored with your regular treadmill and weightlifting routine, martial arts might just be what you need to get out of your fitness rut. Martial arts practice requires you to be both physically and mentally engaged in a class. The result is a rewarding and challenging martial arts practice that also encourages you to have fun with what you’re doing and learning in each class.
