Deliver a Knockout Punch to Your Usual Workout

Adults Who Study Martial Arts Reap Significant Benefits

Studying martial arts is something that anybody – at any age or fitness level – can do. Martial arts classes are fun, empowering, and provide a great workout for adults. Whether you want to defend yourself, lose weight, or just have fun, our adult martial arts classes have something to offer.



You want to be able to defend yourself or your family.
You struggle to be confident in your abilities & strengths and want a healthy way to decrease stress and anxiety.
You want to shed extra pounds and cultivate a positive body image.

Finding The Time And Energy To Exercise Can Be Difficult

Luckily There Is A Comprehensive Solution…

Even when you do find time to hit the gym, regardless of having a schedule that’s full of work, family time, and other obligations, you might be bored by your same old workout. There’s nothing exciting about another go-round on the treadmill or elliptical – and you might need some encouragement to stick to a schedule and achieve your fitness goals.

Martial arts classes for adults focus on building core strength and cardiovascular fitness in a fun, social setting. Why not break out of your dull routine?

Better yourself with every class!

Our martial arts classes for adults can help you build core strength, increase your flexibility, learn how to defend yourself and the people you love, or lose weight. They’re also a great place to make new friends. Whatever your fitness goals are, you can achieve them in our classes.

Builds physical and mental confidence

Sometimes, it can be hard to have faith in your abilities, especially when you’re stressed out and overworked.
Studying martial arts is a natural confidence builder. It provides students with a series of achievable goals to pursue – and achieving each one provides a boost of confidence and a sense of achievement.
Adult martial arts students learn to trust their strength and ability in a challenging environment.



It’s common for adults to struggle with self-esteem as they deal with competitive work environments and overloaded to-do lists.
Adults who study martial arts learn to search within themselves for their best qualities. They learn to self-motivate and not to worry what others think of them.
Martial arts instruction encourages students to feel good about themselves as they master new techniques.

Learn how to stand up for yourself

Many people feel vulnerable and wish that they had a way to defend themselves if they end up in a dangerous situation.
Martial arts classes build strength, confidence, and agility while teaching basic but effective self-defense moves.
Studying martial arts can help you shake feelings of vulnerability and believe in your ability to ward off an attack.


Protect yourself and your family with martial arts

Defending yourself and the family you love is a priority – and for good reason. Money and personal belongings can be replaced, but people cannot.
Studying martial arts helps you learn the moves you need to disarm an attacker and keep yourself and your family safe.
You’ll carry yourself with strength and confidence when you know you can defend yourself.

Martial arts classes are friendly community environments

As an adult, making new friends outside of work can be difficult. Taking a class is one way to connect with people who share a common interest.
While martial arts is not a team sport, our martial arts school is a cooperative community – one where teamwork and support is encouraged.
A friendship that starts inside the studio may end up extending to the outside world.


Make friends while you get in shape and challenge yourself

Finding time to work out and socialize might feel impossible – but what if you combined the two into one activity?
Research shows that people who exercise with friends are less likely to skip workouts than those who exercise alone.
Making friends in our martial arts school helps you build a social circle and gives you buddies to cheer you on and celebrate your successes.

Challenging, calorie-burning workouts

One of the keys to losing weight is finding a workout that you genuinely like doing.
Martial arts workouts are fun and challenging. They burn calories while also building muscles and ramping up your metabolism.
Regular martial arts workouts can help you lose weight steadily, especially when combined with a healthy diet.


Build body confidence as you shed extra pounds and inches

People who carry extra weight often have a negative body image as well – and some have struggled their whole lives to lose weight.

Studying martial arts helps you learn about your body and think of it as an ally, not an enemy.
Martial arts students carry themselves with strength and confidence.

Improve physical fitness with regular workouts

The best way to build fitness is to combine cardiovascular workouts with strength training.
Martial arts workouts give your heart and lungs a workout while also toning and shaping muscles all over your body.
Regular workouts increase energy and form an important part of a healthy lifestyle.


Studying martial arts builds and tones muscles

Few other workouts build and tone muscle as effectively as martial arts does.
All martial arts training focuses on strength, balance, and flexibility, building core strength as students progress and advance.
Good muscle tone is essential since muscle burns more calories than fat – and having a toned body helps increase vitality and confidence.

Burn stress and calories at the same time

Many adults accept stress as a way of life, whether it comes from their jobs, their families, or other issues.
Managing stress is a must since too much stress can lead to high blood pressure and depression, among other things.
Working out releases endorphins and helps increase feelings of well-being and positivity.


Regular exercise helps alleviate anxiety

All people need an outlet for their worry and anxiety – and martial arts classes provide it.
In the absence of such an outlet, you might carry anxiety inside of you and inadvertently take it out on other people.
Martial arts classes burn calories, release tension and anxiety, and help keep you on an even keel mentally and emotionally.

They are. While you will be working toward individual goals, the class itself is meant to be a supportive community of peers and friends.

How can martial arts classes be social when we’ll be competing against each other?

While martial arts students do sometimes spar in class, the competition is meant to be friendly and not aggressive. Fellow students are colleagues, not opponents.

I’ve struggled for years to lose weight. How can martial arts help?

Martial arts classes are fun and intense. You can only lose weight if you burn more calories than you consume, and martial arts classes provide an excellent, calorie-burning workout.

Why are martial arts classes a good workout for people who want to lose weight?

Martial arts classes combine a calorie-burning cardiovascular workout with muscle toning. That’s the ideal combination for people who want to lose weight since building muscle also increases the metabolism.

How many calories can I expect to burn during a martial arts workout?

I already feel stressed out because of my schedule. How is adding one more obligation going to help?

A lot of times, we feel stressed out because we over-commit and don’t schedule time for ourselves. Martial arts classes help teach mindfulness and perspective, and that can help you pare down your schedule accordingly.
