My granddaughter has been attending, learning and being inspired by Master Winkle and his awesome staff. Inspire Martial Arts is not just a Martial Arts class or school. It is a motivational, community minded, self-actualization, positive thinking, family oriented, empowering and life enhancing environment. It nurtures without baby-ing, teaches how to succeed and at the same time assertive and nurturing the mind, body, and spirit of all. Every time I go there to watch my granddaughter, who has evolved tremendously and positively, I enjoy the class. My very best to Master Winkle whose guiding light affects us in such a positive way that you can't help but want to return.

I love how family oriented Inspire Martial Arts is! My spouse, my 8-yr-old son and I can all do a class together regardless of our knowledge and abilities (my son can also take a kids class that is more geared towards kids). There are so many instructors around to assist with each of our needs. I'm able to concentrate on me while my son is still getting assistance when he needs help (and as a mother this is amazing)! In the short 5 weeks that we have been going, I can already see and feel a difference in our confidence and in our body! I also greatly appreciate the time the instructors take to answer all of our questions without ever trying to push us away! I have recommended and I will continue to recommend Inspire Martial Arts!

5 Health & Fitness Benefits of Martial Arts for Men

If you are looking for a way to improve your health or get in better shape, you may not need to hit the gym. Instead, you should head to our martial arts school. Men’s martial arts could be the fitness solution that you have been searching for. Discover the benefits of martial arts for men’s health.

1. Improve Your Cardiovascular Health

Perhaps the greatest benefit of men’s martial arts is improved heart health. Doctors generally recommend between 20 and 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 3 to 5 days per week.

Martial arts will get you up off the couch. Whether are practicing at home or attending a men’s martial arts class, you can easily hit at least 20-minutes of cardio.

This gets your blood pumping and puts stress on your heart, allowing you to increase your heart health. With improved heart health also comes a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.

2. A Full Body Workout for Weight Loss and Fitness

Men’s martial arts can also provide a complete full body workout, helping with weight loss and overall fitness. You get a high-aerobic workout that targets quite a few different muscle groups.

Each martial arts session can help you burn additional calories, while also increasing your endurance. In fact, a typical hour-long session of men’s martial arts can burn about 500 calories. For those trying to lose weight, this could be all that you need to finally blast the fat in trouble areas, such as your abdominal region.

3. Improve Your Flexibility and Balance

By practicing men’s martial arts, you should be able to begin improving your flexibility and balance. You gain a better sense of balance, becoming more in tune with your body.

The various poses and moves that you will learn provide the advantage of increasing your flexibility, keeping you limber. In a way, this is similar to the benefits provided by yoga. You are extending your arms and legs, stretching, and performing aerobic moves that will help with your flexibility.

4. Increase Your Self Esteem with Men’s Martial Arts

As a final benefit to men’s martial arts, you can increase your self-esteem. This is achieved in multiple ways.

  • By getting in better shape, you will feel better about your body.
  • By learning self-defense techniques, you will have more confidence.
  • This combination will have a tremendous impact on your self-esteem.

5. Gain Improved Focus and Concentration

Men’s martial arts is not just about self-defense. You are also learning how to be still and in tune with your body. This teaches focus and concentration.

You need to be able to observe your opponent and focus on how you can use their movement to your advantage. These are skills that carry through to everyday life, helping you with concentration.

These same benefits that lead to improved focus and concentration can also increase your mental clarity and leave you in a calm, relaxed mood.

Studies show that a men’s martial arts session can release endorphins that make you happy and content. This lasts for several hours after your workout is complete.

Men’s martial arts can definitely help with your health and fitness. You can get a full body workout that helps increase your endurance, flexibility, focus, and self-esteem. You can also burn some calories, which can help you drop a few pounds while improving your overall fitness and cardiovascular health.

It is time to raise awareness about men’s health. This includes shedding light on cancer and mental health issues. By adding a new physical activity to your regular routine, you can focus on your own health and fitness.
