Adults, kids and teens, it’s time to jump off your seat and join a self defence class this year! Haven’t you heard that sitting is the new smoking? If you’ve been considering something lighter like aqua aerobics or Latin dancing, consider martial arts. Not only will not only get you moving and in shape, but it could also save your life! So without further ado, let’s get into our top 5 reasons we should all be signing up for rigorous self defence classes in Slough, Wimbledon, Reading or Wokingham.
- Get Active
‘Too much work and no play makes Jack a dull boy’ ‒ boy is this true! Hours spent sitting in front of our laptops or school desks can affect your spine and cause stiffness in the body. Too much screen time can affect our eyes and negatively impacts our overall mental health. Getting active releases natural endorphins, which are good for the mind and body.
- Get Stronger
From kids to adults, a self defence class in Slough, Wimbledon, Reading or Wokingham will activate all your muscles and help you build strength with the help of trained black belt instructors. Be guided on the right exercises and how to perform them safely, minimising injuries.
- Build Confidence
Martial arts, particularly karate, are a great way to build up confidence in young children and teens who may be dealing with self-esteem issues or facing peer pressure at school. This way, they can learn how to handle bullying and gain confidence in a safe, non-threatening environment.
- Healthy Routine
Being part of a regular self defence course forces you to get into a healthy routine of working out, eating healthy and focusing the mind. At Kickfit Academy, we encourage our students to stay consistent in their training all the way through to black belt and enjoy that sense of accomplishment.
- Learn Different Techniques
Joining a versatile self defence class like Kickfit Academy allows you to learn different martial arts styles like karate, Taekwondo and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu so you can apply different techniques in real-life situations and find the style that you like best.
Kick off with a great start to your year by joining Kickfit Academy for a self defence class in the areas of Wimbledon, Slough, Reading and Wokingham. We offer martial classes for all ages, taught by experienced instructors. Contact us to get started!
