Many people never step foot in a dojang because they are intimidated by the idea of learning self-defense. Not only is this fear holding you back from reaching your highest potential, but is potentially putting your life in danger.

If you want to get in shape, it’s time to ditch the treadmill and weights for something a little more exciting. More and more adults are making martial arts their new workout routine, and it’s no surprise why. Not only do weekly classes hold you accountable, but you’ll see results after training in martial arts for just a few weeks that you won’t see after months at the gym. Martial arts training has been shown to boost heart health, improve flexibility and coordination, lower cholesterol, tone muscles, quicken reflexes, and help with weight loss.
