Martial Arts Isn't Just For Kids
While our martial arts training is an excellent personal-development activity for children, it's great for adults also.
Our Ottawa Martial Arts adult students usually find that they cope better with stress, sleep better at night, work better during the day and just feel better overall. They also have a greater peace of mind due to the knowledge and expertise on what to do if faced with a dangerous situation.
However, the greatest benefit of martial arts at John Leroux's World KarateFIT Centre for adults is the increased sense of self confidence it builds.
No matter what the style of martial arts -- whether it's karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitso, judo, aikido, tai chi or kendo -- the physical and mental benefits are similar.
- Increased cardiovascular fitness
- Improved muscle tone
- Increased energy
- Greater flexibility
Mental Benefits of Martial Arts
- Lower stress levels
- Higher self-esteem
- Emotional satisfaction -- especially if you're taking martial arts classes alongside your children
- Better concentration and focus
All of the martial arts Ottawa classes are individualized. Adults participate at their own fitness level while progressing in skill and technique.
When participating as a family, martial arts provide a unique opportunity for sharing in a non-competitive fun activity. Plus, parents have the opportunity to reinforce the life lessons taught in our martial arts classes at home.
Ottawa Martial Arts provide an ideal workout for both men and women. Our adult martial arts students range in age from young adult to seniors.
