Which Is the Best Martial Arts Style for Fitness? Let’s Settle the Debate

best martial arts style for fitness

Naming the best martial arts style for fitness is almost impossible. Many different types of martial arts have been practiced for thousands of years, and martial arts have created incredible transformations to this day. We’re going to go through the most effective martial arts that we offer and try to crown a champion. Let’s do it!

 

1. Martial Arts

best martial arts style for fitnessWe offer a general Taekwondo fitness class that is kind of a little bit of everything – and all of our students love it. You’ll learn how to throw kicks and punches, have a great time with fun-loving people, and break quite a sweat too. We condition at the beginning of class, run through drills, teach new skills, and then finish with a cool-off. You will get sweaty in this class, so if you’re a beginner to martial arts in general and looking for the best martial arts style for fitness, our martial arts classes could be the perfect fit for you.

 

2. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

best martial arts style for fitnessBrazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a slightly different form of martial arts, practiced around the world. BJJ is key to fighting an opponent bigger and stronger than you; you’ll use physics, motion, and lots of groundwork training to defend yourself no matter the size of your attacker. Many women’s self-defense classes, including our own, will take pages from BJJ. If you’re looking to work your core in particular, go with BJJ. Lots of groundwork = lots of core work! All who desire shredded abs, attend a BJJ class. It might be the best martial arts style for fitness for you.

 

3. Muay Thai and Krav Maga

best martial arts style for fitnessMuay Thai and Krav Maga will both take your fitness regimen to the next level. Our Muay Thai classes incorporate punching, kicking, elbowing, and kneeing, and offer competitive opportunities if you’re looking to push yourself to compete in martial arts. Krav Maga is more of a boot camp style of teaching, as it was originally taught to Israeli soldiers, so it’s super practical for real-life fighting. Both forms promise a killer physique and excellent self-defense training. That said, the best martial arts style for fitness is dependent on whether you want to compete and use elbows and knees, or if you want to focus more on real-life self-defense applications.

 

4. The Verdict

Taekwondo vs KarateBottom line: You’ll get fit, fast, with our karate fitness class. They’re fast-paced, incorporate the entire body, and kicks and punches go pretty far in ramping up your metabolism. However, there are some key points you should consider when looking for the best martial arts style. Looking for lots of groundwork? Go with BJJ. If you’re looking for next-level fitness, Krav Maga or Muay Thai are your best options. Last, but not least, you can get a taste of all of our martial arts modalities with our general adult martial arts class in the city.
