You will realise that the power of the body and mind is the key to increased energy, self-discipline and fitness for a longer, happier life.
Martial arts for women
Often mistakenly seen as guys-only pursuit due to its roots in combat sports, women have actually participated martial arts for centuries. Like every practitioner, women get so much more from martial arts than just learning how to kick and punch.
First, martial arts is a superb for fitness. If you’ve taken boxing classes at your local gym, you know how much of a workout it is. But boxing is just your arms, while karate and taekwondo also bring in kicks and engage your core too – all in more complex, rhythmic and fluid combinations and routines.
Correct form also requires you to harmonise, harness and unleash your body’s energy through balance, breathing, spirit and mind. So, as well as cardio, martial arts also relies on control and power – helping to hone, tone and sculpt muscle. Lastly, all these benefits make karate or taekwondo great ways to release tension and relieve stress.
The next level of martial arts training is working with an implement that extends your physical mastery beyond your own body. Just as much as unarmed combat, training with weapons has been part of the unbroken legacy of martial arts for thousands of years.
By making the space your movements occupy larger, weapons training challenges your skills and presence of mind. To do this requires highly developed balance, coordination, posture and strength. At United Martial Arts, we offer you training in:
- staff (bow staff)
- short stick (arnis stick).
Further, working with weapons includes resistance training as learning to safely control the weight and momentum of the weapon requires more strength than simply making the same movements empty-handed. And don’t forget – it’s a lot of fun too!
