What is martial arts? Is it physical, is it mental, or is it just for kids? Do you immediately think of fancy fight scenes in the movies?
Martial arts has a long history dating back to centuries B.C. The term martial arts literally means arts of Mars after the Roman god of war, Mars. Through time, martial arts systems have been formed both for military forces and oppressed groups. For many styles, self-defense is the primary premise, but once training begins, the student also learns the importance of meditation.
In modern day America, styles from around the world are available to learn. Benefits include:
- Better sleep and concentration
- Total body workout
- Stress relief
Consider adding martial arts training to your lifestyle. Beginners are welcome and enjoy specialized classes for their level.
