Martial Arts as Exercise

Might be surprising to know that besides being a great discipline for your body, martial arts is a great overall exercise with many health benefits including muscle strengthening and stress release. Tae Kwon Do and Kung Fu help with improving your cardiovascular health and tones muscles. Thai kickboxing helps improve the body’s overall flexibility and a callisthenic exercise promotes general fitness. Studies have shown that those who participate in martial arts have higher levels of fitness, stronger immune systems, better strength, flexibility and stamina. [1]
