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 just punches and kicks. Read on to learn more!
Relieve Stress and Tone Up with Martial Arts for Women
An indisputable fact: Moms are awesome. These women are the often unsung heroes of the world, taking on so much and giving so much in return to everyone in their lives. 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. When you’re a mom that stays at home, that’s stressful. If you’re a mom who works, that’s stressful too. Once you’ve got one kid, stressful. Ten kids, more stressful!
All human beings women, men, children – all of us are confronted with stress in the modern world we live in, and we’re all figuring out a way to deal with it. We can say with confidence that martial arts for women help hundreds of women in this Williamsville community melt their stress and become their most confident selves. How? Take adult self-defense classes.
Oftentimes stress is a mental pressure we put on ourselves, pumping ourselves up and kind of catastrophizing into the future. 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 martial arts for women is 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
It’s a sad truth that girls need to use womens self-defense and karate skills more often than men do. 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 and all women, in general, have found it comforting and confidence-boosting to learn self-defense skills from our classes. Some studies have shown that women who take self-defense training feel more confident in their bodies and more confident in public places.
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, go completely nuts on their predators.
Humans have these little things called laws that prevent us from outright attacking 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 self-defense.
Plus, you’re teaching things to your children all the time, even if you don’t know them – how to use a fork and knife properly, what to say to comfort a loved one. If we passed down self-defense just as easily to our kids, what would life be like, especially for our little girls, our future women? You never know what ripple effects this life-changing skill can have. Pass down one of the best skills you can- the ability to defend yourself in any situation. Your kids may thank you one day.
Mental Benefits of Martial Arts for Women – Confidence and Self-Respect
This is a big one for a lot of women taking our martial arts for women, especially moms. 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. This means a lot of women are way less confident in themselves, their appearance, and their abilities than they deserve to be.
As our classes help you tone up, get fit, and have fun, they’re also helping you build an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Really! Think about it – if you knew that you could handle any physical situation that came your way, wouldn’t you feel more confident in yourself?
If you just smashed your fitness goals 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 classes for women?
