Martial Arts for women

More moms than ever are taking martial arts for women, and it’s easy to see why–these classes are about so much more than what you’ve seen in the movies. Read on to learn more!


Relieve Stress and Tone Up with Martial Arts for Women

martial arts for womenMoms are so awesome. They give and give of themselves for their kids and everyone in their lives, sometimes without any expectation of return. That selflessness is huge! We want to start by saying that we seriously appreciate all of the work that goes into being a mom, in any capacity, and we also understand just how much of that work can weigh on you. If you’re a mom that stays at home, that’s stressful. If you’ve got one kid, stressful. Ten kids, stressful!

All human beings are confronted with stress in the modern world we live in, and we’re all looking to deal with stress better so we can show up better. We can say with confidence that martial arts for women helps hundreds in this Lynbrook community melt their stress and become the best version of themselves they can be. How? Teen & adult boxing.

Stress itself is a self-imposed pressure augmented by mental rumination. We pump ourselves up and stress ourselves out–sometimes for legitimate reasons, oftentimes for future situations that will never actually happen. Again, it’s easy to be stressed out as a mom; you’ve got your life stuff going on, and your kid’s stuff on top of it. Moving your body in any form will help get that adrenaline out of your body and reduce stress pretty much immediately, but karate classes for women are awesome in that you kick and punch your way to stress-free thinking. There’s something about getting all that tension, frustration, and anxious energy out through just your arms and legs that feels amazing.


Get Fit Fast through Self-Defense

Adult Karate ClassWe live in an unjust world, so a woman is often confronted with more self-defense situations than a man. As all of us look to change that fact on a societal level, more and more people are realizing that self-defense is one of those things you don’t ever want to “wish you’d learned” sooner. A lot of moms have found it rewarding and confidence-boosting to learn self-defense skills from our martial arts for women classes. Studies have shown that women who take self-defense training feel more confident in their bodies and more confident in public.

Also, ever heard of “mom aggression”? It’s this primal feeling moms get when they sense a serious threat headed straight toward their child. Moms protecting their young in the wild, like bears and lions, will go berserk on these attackers and most likely kill them. Human moms are restrained by these little things called laws that prevent us from mauling each other, but God forbid someone ever comes after you or your kids. You’ll be grateful to know how to protect your life and theirs through Taekwondo classes for women.


Mental Benefits of Martial Arts for Women: Confidence and Self-Respect

self-defense classesThis is a big one for a lot of moms taking our martial arts for women. Again, we live in an unjust world, so women are often taught to criticize their bodies constantly and even “hate” certain parts of their bodies in ways that men don’t have to deal with. And this hatred robs women of the true confidence that they deserve.

While you’re getting fit, having a blast, and learning women’s self-defense through martial arts classes, you’re also building an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Yes, really! Think of it this way: If you knew without a shadow of a doubt that you could handle any physical situation or altercation that came your way, wouldn’t you be more confident? If you just crushed your workout and pushed your mind and body in ways you never had before, wouldn’t you hold your head up higher coming out of your karate class?

Our instructors are world-class teachers who know a lot about self-defense and martial arts. They also know a thing or two about setting and meeting goals, persevering through difficulty, and other important life skills that took them from novice to expert. Remember, a black belt is a white belt that never gave up! This is where confidence and success start; believing in yourself, even when you have every reason not to, and getting stuff done. Reaching new heights. Pushing your limits. When you know you’re truly remarkable because of your own opinion of yourself, you automatically become more confident, and you glow from the inside out.

So: Stress relief, physical fitness, self-defense, and confidence; four reasons that more moms than ever are turning to martial arts to try something new! We have a risk-free First Battalion MMA trial at a fraction of the cost to help you dip your toe in and soak up some of these amazing benefits.
