Benefits of Karate

Arts of the Samurai offers karate programs as well as other great training programs for you to improve your health and physical abilities.

Karate and Martial Arts can definitely be associated with weight loss. One hour of karate burns quite a bit of calories and can assist you in improving your health. Karate is also linked to improved cardiovascular health, stressing the heart and building strength.

Additionally, regular karate participation will improve your muscle mass, reflexes, and your overall mood. Exercising releases endorphins in the body, and makes you feel good!

There are several mental benefits to participating in karate, and it oftentimes helps to improve one’s confidence and respect. Practicing karate can improve discipline and mental toughness – mental benefits which can then be used in your everyday life.

The great thing about karate is that it’s a fun workout! Most of our students tell us they don’t realize the time that’s passing while they’re learning and in class – and then they feel great afterwards.  All around – karate is satisfying mentally, physically, and emotionally.
