Premier Martial Arts for Mental and Physical Fitness

By Premier Martial Arts in Fort Wayne, In

Karate is known to be one of the most well-known forms of martial arts all over the world. Karate helps develop the core physical properties of the human body – endurance, flexibility, and strength. Learning karate requires an individual to be focused on various aspects such as regular practice and

determination – thereby promoting the development of those aspects in the body as well.


Karate has the potential to improve both the mental and physical fitness of a person. Karate has long been known for its ability to make a person fitter and smarter. Long time practice in karate also instills a feeling of discipline and determination in a person.

Benefits of karate for children


Learning Karate from a young age is known to promote the development of good behavior in a child. Because of the fact that Karate is focused on developing the physical aspects of the body as well as the mental aspects, the child will learn to be more disciplined, focused and in control of his or her body.


Self-esteem and self-confidence is something a lot of children struggle with in today’s fast paced world. Karate, however, is known to promote a feeling of being happy with oneself and helps children in becoming more confident about their body and abilities. Moreover, the fact that Karate is taught as a form of self – defense rather than as a form of attack, a child that takes up this martial art will be taught about how to control his or her impulsive reactions and also use the martial art only when required.


Many children have benefited from karate classes and regular karate practice at Premier Martial Arts. Over time, the demand for karate among young children has actually increased. The greatest beneficiary of the karate have been young children who have used it to improve their physical fitness and mental performance at the same time.


Benefits of karate for men

While taking up karate when you are a young child will obviously give you more time to develop your body and tone it, grown men can also take up the martial art and see it almost completely transform the way they live. Psychologists also believe that men are ‘hard-wired’ to thrive on physical power and being able to come out on a physical altercation. While karate does help develop your body to be a weapon, there is also a lot of stress placed on ensuring that the body is able to cope with the mental aspects of keeping your calm and ensuring that you know how to diffuse a situation without allowing it to develop into a physical assault.


The way an individual is trained is essential in order to breed the right aspects of karate in a man. It is also extremely important to make sure that you find out as much as you can about potential sensei’s and their teaching methods before you join one.


Karate practice provides great benefits to men in the form of improved fitness. It has helped many men in losing excess weight and making themselves slimmer. Karate has also made them mentally tougher and better able to take on the challenges of life.


Benefits of karate for women

More and more women are getting interested in martial arts and, specifically, karate. While the interest of women in martial arts in previous years and generations had not been either very highly regarded or encouraged, more women are starting to see the benefit of self-defense in today’s aggressive world. While the benefits of karate for women are very similar to those for men, there are other subtle differences. For instance, women have starting to take the issue of their safety into their own hands. A well-trained karate-practicing woman is able to defend herself without the need of a male companion to be her ‘knight in shining armor’.

Karate helps women develop their physique as well as mental health to give them a significant advantage over a man that has no martial arts training. A woman trained in karate has a lot to gain. She can use karate lessons to improve her self-esteem and confidence.

For this very reason, the practice of karate is on the rise among women. Most women who learn karate also invite their friends and other women into it. This has created a lot of demand for karate among women in recent years.
