3 Reasons to Take Adult Martial Arts Classes

In All, Martial Arts Classes for Adults by Don Alley

Super Kicks Karate is proud to offer adult martial arts classes at both of its locations. While martial arts provides valuable morals and physical exercise for school age children, these are necessities for anyone, regardless of age. Here are the three top reasons to join an adult martial arts class.

Lose Weight and Get in Shape

If you’re like most adults, you want to get in shape and be healthy, but finding the time is hard. Don’t try and make it to the gym: take a martial arts class instead! Adult Karate is great for losing weight and toning the body. Staying physically active can also help when it comes to eating better, too.

Discover Self-Defense

We all want to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe. Self-defense classes are a great way to prevent an attack. Super Kicks Karate offers fun and informational self-defense classes which include front kicks and how to escape common grab attacks.

Learn the Black Belt Attitude

No matter your age, a black belt is still the prized accomplishment that many seek. Becoming a black belt is more than just mastering technique: it’s also having a black belt attitude. These are things that can further us in life, no matter who we are or where we are on life’s journey.

Respect, discipline, and confidence are just a few of the things that martial arts can help a person achieve. Loyalty is another key part of the black belt attitude. By demonstrating loyalty, you not only become a better person, but you become a better friend, coworker, even spouse. Having the courage and conviction to stand by what you believe in and those whom you care about is what loyalty is all about.

While these may seem like values that should have been learned in school, they’re still moral values that we should take with us every day. If you’re looking for a fresh start on life, taking a martial arts class and learning the black belt attitude is a great idea.

Try one of our adult classes and find a fun way to get in shape, protect yourself, and become a better you. Call Super Kicks Karate at (571) 293-2467.
