I Love it! I put my kids into training a few months ago to help them learn to focus and I am so impressed with how much they have changed in such a small amount of time! They're always so excited about training and begging me to bring them to class...it's never a hassle to get them ready to go like it has been with other sports or after school activities. In addition to the martial arts skills, the fitness, balance, and coordination...my kids have learned how to be disciplined, how to stand up straight and still, and how to practice eye contact. The training isn't all physical...each class, the instructors talk about a life skill/lesson that they encourage the kids to practice at home or at school. Last week they talked about courtesy and how to show courtesy to others. It's really a great program for fitness and life skills.

My kids have loved it so much and I'm always practicing with them at home..I recently decided to try taking classes for myself and I'm loving it just as much as my kids! Each class I'm learning self defense and martial arts AND getting a pretty intense cardio workout! I highly recommend this facility and program to anyone and everyone!

Great instructors and no place better for your kiddos (and you!) to build confidence, discipline, & respect, all while learning how to protect yourself. The Parent's Night Out and birthday party's are amazing options also! Don't forget, you can also break some boards too!!

Our 6 and 8 year old sons started here a couple of months ago. They absolutely love it and would go everyday if we could get them there. They are learning so much including focus and discipline. The results are amazing. The instructors are all family and you can tell that they love what they do and the children they teach. Highly recommend this place!!!

Protect Your Heart with Martial Arts

Did you know that practicing martial arts is great for the heart? In fact, the cardiac
benefits of martial arts give a whole new meaning to the idea of cardiovascular fitness.
With that in mind, here are some ways that taking martial arts classes can protect and
strengthen your heart.

Martial Arts Raise the Heart Rate
The first way that martial arts can help the heart is by raising your heart rate when you work
out. The heart is a muscle and it needs to be worked. When you take a martial arts class, your
heart rate is elevated.

The benefit of raising the heart rate is that it oxygenates the blood, and helps promote
calorie burning even after you’re done working out. People of all ages need to keep their
hearts pumping, and martial arts is a great way to do it.

Martial Arts Lower Blood Pressure
Did you know that a high-intensity martial arts workout can help lower your blood pressure?
It’s true. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a leading contributor to heart disease.
When you work out, your heart becomes stronger – and that means that it can pump blood
more efficiently than it can without exercise. The less effort your heart has to expend on
pumping blood, the lower your blood pressure is.

Martial Arts Lower Cholesterol
LDL cholesterol – the so-called “bad” cholesterol” – is a contributing factor in heart disease.
Regular participation in martial arts helps you lose weight and that decreases the amount of
LDL cholesterol in your blood.

There’s evidence that working out also shrinks the proteins that carry cholesterol through the
bloodstream, making them less dangerous to the heart.

On a related note, regular vigorous exercise – such as the kind you get in a martial arts
workout – helps to increase HDL or “good” cholesterol.

Martial Arts Reduces Stress
One thing that separates martial arts from many other forms of exercise is that it requires
mental stillness combined with physical exertion.

Mental stillness contributes to mindfulness, a practice that can significantly decrease stress
and anxiety in both children and adults.

Considering that there is a direct link between stress and heart health (stress contributes to
high blood pressure and related issues), the fact that participating in martial arts can reduce
stress is a huge benefit for the heart.

Conclusion
In addition to the benefits already mentioned, martial arts training also helps to improve
discipline, build muscle coordination, and increase self-confidence. This month, why not give your heart a boost by adding martial arts to your workout routine?
