What are the benefits of karate?

Many people are unaware of all the benefits that come with participating in karate. More specifically, though, karate offers a wide variety of exercise benefits!

East West Karate & Fitness offers karate programs as well as other great training programs for you to improve your health and physical abilities.

Karate and Martial Arts can definitely be associated with weight loss. One hour of karate burns quite a bit of calories and can assist you in improving your health.

Karate is also linked to improved cardiovascular health, stressing the heart and building strength.

In addition, regular karate participation will improve your muscle mass, reflexes, and your overall mood. Exercising releases endorphins in the body, and makes you feel good!

There are also several mental benefits to participating in karate.  Karate will help to improve your confidence and respect.  Practicing karate also helps to improve discipline and mental toughness .  These mental benefits can then be used in your everyday life.

The great thing about karate is that it’s a fun workout. Many people don’t realize the time that’s passing while they’re learning, and feel great afterwards.
