At Karate Fit USA, our students learn dynamic, isometric, and repetitive exercises through kicks, strikes, and self-defense moves to help stay protected in any situation. We train the body and mind to work together and do our best to prevent living in a state of fear. Once you begin to learn self-defense skills, over time, these skills can put you in a more confident position.
Both children and adults will experience a boost in confidence from learning self-defense from martial arts. Some of this confidence comes from the individual progress made by working through the belt ranking system. Working at your own pace to achieve the goals within the different belt ranks provides students with a sense of accomplishment and self-confidence.
Another contributing factor to gaining confidence through self-defense is the control you begin to develop, both physical control of your body and also a sense of control and safety in your environment. Perhaps you find yourself walking a little taller. Or, you find yourself respectfully standing up for yourself when a situation calls for it. This confidence and awareness help to make you less of a target for unwanted encounters or attacks.
As you develop your skills, you will also build your level of physical fitness. Self-defense training in martial arts is not an easy task; it is a workout. Most classes will include a group warm-up and possibly some strength movements to support the movements and techniques of martial arts. You will gain strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness which could put you at an advantage if you ever need to defend yourself from an attacker.
We are a fun, family-oriented martial arts school that will not only teach you martial arts skills for self-defense but will also get you into great shape. Contact us today to learn more and get started.
