Why More Mums Are Taking Karate: Martial Arts for Women

Martial arts for women

Why are more women than ever taking adult martial arts classes, especially mums? It’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 Women’s Martial Arts

Martial arts for women

Mums 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 mum in any capacity and we also understand just how much of that work can weigh on you. If you’re stay-at-home, working, or some combination of the two, it’s stressful. You’re navigating single parenthood and also going to school- stressful. If you’ve got one kid, stressful. Ten kids, stressful!

Get Fit Fast Through Self-DefenceMartial arts for women

Mental Benefits of Women’s Karate are Confidence and Self-RespectWhy More Moms Are Taking Karate | Martial Arts for Women

This is a biggie for a lot of women taking our martial arts classes, especially mums. Again, we live in an unjust world, so women are often taught to criticise their bodies constantly and even “hate” certain 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 classes help you tone up, get fit, and have fun, they’re also helping you build an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Yes, really! Think about it – if you knew without a shadow of a doubt that you could handle any physical situation or altercation that came your way, wouldn’t you feel more confident in yourself? If you just crushed your workout and persevered through class, pushing your mind and body in new ways, wouldn’t you hold your head up higher coming out of your karate class?

Our instructors are world-class teachers know a lot about self-defence and martial arts. But they also know a thing or two about the mindset behind confidence and success, perseverance through adversity, and other important life skills that took them from beginner to teacher. (Remember, a black belt is a white belt that never gave up!) This is where real, untouchable confidence comes from – believing in yourself, even when you don’t want to, and getting it done. Reaching new heights. Handling it. When you know you’re amazing because of your own opinion of yourself, you automatically become more confident, and you glow from the inside out.

And just like before, mums are passing things down to their kids all the time, whether they know it or not. Why not give them the gift of a confident role model with a healthy dose of self-esteem? Why not show them through your actions how a leader really perseveres?

It sounds cheesy, but it’s true: We help create bully-proof kids in our kids martial arts classes, and in our adult martial arts classes, we negate whatever our inner bullies say through our incredible actions and our true confidence.
