Why are more women than ever taking martial arts for women, especially moms? It’s simple. 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

Teen Martial Arts ClassesAn indisputable fact is that moms are awesome. These women are the world’s superheroes, 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. If you’re stay-at-home, working, or some combination of the two, it’s stressful. You’re navigating single parenthood and also going to school, stressful. 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 figuring out a way to deal with it. We can say with confidence that Karate classes for women have helped plenty of women in our Green Brook community melt their stress and become their most confident, most energized selves. How? Martial arts for women.

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. Your brain is thinking about your life stuff, and then switching over to your kid’s art project, and then your other child’s got a diaper change, etc. Any physical activity you do will get that stress-induced adrenaline moving throughout your body and get you out of your head, but adult martial arts classes are special in that you kick and punch your way to that stress-melting feeling. 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 ClassIt’s a sad truth that women need to use self-defense and Karate skills more often than men do. As we work to change that fact on a societal scale, more and more people are realizing that martial arts for women is one of those things you don’t ever want to “wish you’d learned” sooner. A lot of moms have found it gratifying 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 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. 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.


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

Adult Karate ProgramThis is a biggie for a lot of moms taking our martial arts for women. Again, we live in an unjust world, so many women criticize their bodies constantly and even “hate” certain parts of their bodies in ways that men don’t have to deal with. This translates to women being way less confident in their physical bodies and their mental capabilities than they deserve to be.

As our classes help you tone up, get fit, and have fun, but they’re also helping you build an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Really! Think of it this way, 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 Taekwondo classes for women?

Our instructors are world-class teachers who will show you everything you need to know about self-defense 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. One of our favorite sayings is, “A black belt is a white belt that never gave up!” This is where real, untouchable confidence comes from. Believing in yourself, even when you have proof that you shouldn’t, and getting stuff done. Reaching new heights. Handling it. When you know you’re awesome because of your own opinion of yourself, you automatically become more confident, and you glow from the inside out.

Stress relief, physical fitness, self-defense, and confidence are four reasons why moms are joining women self-defense classes like crazy! We have a risk-free USA Karate Academy trial at a fraction of the cost to help you dip your toe in and soak up some of these amazing benefits.
