Martial Arts for Adults
October 15, 2014 / No Comments

Many people look to martial arts for their children, not realizing that there are also many benefits for adults too. Here is a list of the top 5 benefits of martial arts for adults!


  • Increased Energy and Productivity


We all wish there were more hours in the day. Our to-do lists are never ending and by the end of the day we’re exhausted.  A lot of times those to-do lists in our minds keep us from falling asleep at night. It is proven that exercise increases endorphins, improves brain functionality and many times gives you that extra boost of energy to get a few more things checked off that to-do list after the kids go to sleep. It is also proven that routine exercise improves sleep and therefore allows you to wake up feeling more energetic to tackle the day. One hour of exercise only takes up 4% of your entire day.  Getting a couple of extra hours of energy each day is a 100% return on that investment.


  • Discipline and Focus


In an ever-connected world of phones and smart devices, we are multi-tasking more than ever. Add to that, people that demand your time, whether it’s your boss, co-worker, spouse or children.  This makes it even harder to focus and stay on track. An hour on the mat gives you a break from all of these things. Your time is spent focusing on moves and breathing, leaving all the stress behind (and the damage stress does to your body).


  • Goal Achievement


Many of us set goals in our professional lives and rarely are they mental or physical goals. At Mansfield Martial Arts, your goals are outlined for you. Your mind and your body are part of the formula every step of the way. Martial arts is a group activity: you have “positive peer pressure” to stick with it and a group to help give you that little push to stick to your exercise goals.


  • Self-Confidence


Studies have found a strong correlation between adults with self-confidence and career advancement, success in relationships and productivity.  Our program helps you build confidence by setting you up to succeed. As you advance belts or master self-defense moves, you will start to feel more confident in your ability to defend yourself. When you’re self-assured, you approach more challenges with a can-do attitude, and as we all know, confidence goes a long way in breeding success.


  • Self-Defense


Martial arts is a fun way to exercise and keep your mind off the physical exertion you’re experiencing, but don’t ever forget that you’re also building self-defense skills as well.  Our classes are designed to improve agility, balance, endurance, flexibility and strength. We have had a lot of success in our women’s self-defense seminars. While you are taught some great techniques in these seminars, repetition is key. Attackers want an easy target, not one who is able to fight back.




These are just the top 5 benefits. We offer adult karate, adult kickboxing and adult boxing.  You would be surprised at how many women and men enjoy our classes. On October 21, we are offering free trials to all 3 of our classes. Adult boxing is at 4:30pm. Adult kickboxing is at 7:00pm. Adult Karate is at 7:30pm. If you are afraid you might be uncomfortable, bring a girlfriend or spouse with you! If this day or time doesn’t work for you, give us a call at (817) 453-7783 and we will work to find a time for you to try it out.
