Why are more moms than ever taking martial arts for womenIt’s simple, these classes are about so much more than what you’ve seen in the movies. Read on to learn more!


Relieve Stress and Tone Up with Martial Arts for Women

Women Empowered in BurwoodMoms are so awesome. They give and give of themselves for their kids and everyone in their lives, sometimes without any expectation of return. That selflessness is huge! We want to start by saying that we seriously appreciate all of the work that goes into being a mom, in any capacity, and we also understand just how much of that work can weigh on you. If you’re a mom that stays at home, that’s stressful. When you’re a mom who works, that’s stressful too. You’ve got one kid, stressful. Ten kids, stressful!

Everybody, no matter their parental status or gender, is confronted with stress in the modern world we live in, and we’re all figuring out a way to deal with it. We can say with confidence that karate has helped plenty of women in our Burwood community melt their stress and become their most confident selves. How? Martial arts for women.

Oftentimes stress is a mental pressure we put on ourselves, pumping ourselves up and kind of catastrophising into the future. Again, it’s easy to be stressed out as a mom. You’ve got your life stuff going on, and your kid’s stuff on top of it. Any physical activity you do will get that stress-induced adrenaline moving throughout your body and get you out of your head, but adult self-defence classes are special in that you kick and punch your way to stress-free thinking. There’s something about getting all that tension, frustration, and anxious energy out through just your arms and legs that feels amazing.


Get Fit Fast through Self-Defence

martial arts for womenBecause of the unjust world we live in, a woman will often require self-defence skills on more occasions than a man. As we all work to change that fact on a global level, more and more people are realising that martial arts for women is one of those things you don’t ever want to “wish you’d learned” sooner. A lot of moms have found it rewarding and confidence-boosting to learn self-defence skills from our classes. Some studies have shown that women who take self-defence training feel more confident in their bodies and more confident in public places.

Also, ever heard of “mom aggression”? It’s this primal feeling mothers get when someone’s threatening the life they gave birth to and have a deep attachment to. Moms protecting their young in the wild, like bears and lions, go completely nuts on their predators. Humans have these little things called laws that prevent us from outright attacking each other, but God forbid someone ever comes after you or your kids. You’ll be grateful to know how to protect your life and theirs through martial arts for women.


Mental Benefits of Martial Arts for Women: Confidence and Self-Respect

martial arts for womenThis is a biggie for a lot of moms taking our martial arts for womenAgain, we live in an unjust world, so women are often taught to criticise their bodies constantly and even “hate” parts of their bodies in ways that men don’t have to deal with. This translates to women being way less confident in their physical bodies and their mental capabilities than they deserve to be.

As our Karate classes for women help you tone up, get fit, and have fun, they’re also helping you build an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Really! Think about it. If you knew without a shadow of a doubt that you could handle any physical situation that came your way, wouldn’t you be more confident? If you just crushed your workout and pushed your mind and body in ways you never had before, wouldn’t you hold your head up higher coming out of your Karate class?

Our instructors are world-class teachers who will show you everything you need to know about Taekwondo classes for women. They also know a thing or two about setting and getting goals, persevering through difficulty, and other important life skills that took them from beginner to master. One of our favorite sayings is, “a black belt is a white belt that never gave up!” This is where confidence and success start. Believing in yourself, even when you have proof that you shouldn’t, and getting stuff done. Reaching new heights. Handling it. When you know you’re awesome because of your own opinion of yourself, you automatically become more confident, and you glow from the inside out.

Stress relief, physical fitness, self-defense, and confidence are four awesome reasons for many to join our women self-defence as a mom! We have a risk-free Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Burwood trial at a fraction of the cost, to help you dip your toe in and soak up some of these amazing benefits. Try it today and see for yourself how our adult self-defence classes are changing the lives of moms in Burwood every day!
