Why are more women than ever taking adult martial arts classes, especially moms? It’s simple: Martial arts for women is so much more than just punches and kicks. Read on to learn more!

 

Relieve Stress and Tone up with Martial Arts for Women

martial arts for womenAn indisputable fact: Moms are awesome. These women are the 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. You’re a mom that stays at home, that’s stressful. If you’re a mom who works, that’s stressful, too. If you’ve got one kid, stressful. Ten kids, stressful!

Every person is being 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 karate classes for women help hundreds of women in this Oakleigh community melt their stress and become the best version of themselves they can be. How? Martial arts for women.

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 through our adult karate classes will help get that adrenaline out of your body and reduce stress pretty much immediately, but Taekwondo classes for women are special 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-Defence

Adult BJJ in OakleighIt’s a sad truth that women need to use women’s self-defence 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 realising that self-defence is one of those things you don’t ever want to “wish you’d learned” sooner. A lot of moms have found martial arts for women rewarding and confidence-boosting to learn self-defence skills from our classes. Studies have shown that women who take self-defence training feel more confident in their bodies and more confident in public.

Also, ever heard of “mom aggression?” It’s this primal feeling mothers get when someone’s threatening the life they gave birth to and have a deep attachment to. Moms protecting their young in the wild, like bears and lions, go completely nuts on their predators. 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 self-defence.

 

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

martial arts for womenThis is a big one for a lot of moms taking martial arts for women: Again, we live in an unjust world, so many women criticise 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.

While you’re getting fit, having a blast, and learning self-defence through martial arts classes, you’re also building an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Really! Think about it–if you knew without a shadow of a doubt that you could handle any physical situation 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 will show you everything you need to know about self-defence and martial arts, but they also know a thing or two about the mindset behind confidence and success, perseverance through adversity, and other important life skills that took them from beginner to teacher. Remember, a black belt is a white belt that never gave up! This is where that, “I am amazing” confidence comes from; believing in yourself, even when you don’t want to, and getting it done. Reaching new heights. Feeling the fear and doing it anyway. When you know you’re amazing because of your own opinion of yourself, you automatically become more confident, and you glow from the inside out.

In conclusion: Stress relief, physical fitness, self-defence, and confidence are four reasons why moms are doing martial arts for women like crazy! We have a risk-free Challenge Martial Arts adult karate classes trial at a fraction of the cost to help you dip your toe in and soak up some of these amazing benefits. Try it today and see for yourself how martial arts are changing the lives of moms in Oakleigh every day!
