5 Secret Benefits of Martial Arts That’ll Change Your Life

Dear neighbor,

Hi and welcome!

Have you wanted to take control of your life for a while now, but you’re not quite sure how to do that? Perhaps you're looking for a better outlet for your kids to work off some extra energy they have while learning and growing.

Our Santa Fe Martial Arts school can certainly help you with those things. At first glance, some people think Martial Arts is just a way to get fit and learn self-defense...which is true. But it’s also so much more than kicks and punches! Our students are amazed at how much it really changes their life in ways that most people are not prepared for.

These life-changing benefits are more "subtle" than the physical benefits you see from our classes. While you can see leaner muscles and feel the effects of cardio training within the first couple weeks, the benefits below are felt on a much deeper level and have some really awesome side effects.

Read below to see how our students' lives have changed from their adventures into the action-packed world of Martial Arts. We can't wait to see how your life changes from our classes too!

#1 Huge Confidence Gains

Learning new skills and tasks is difficult. One of the first things both children AND adults notice when training is that they don’t get to have super-star kung fu movie style moves without some serious work. As you dig in, and put yourself to the test mentally and physically, you’ll realize something…

You’ll realize that through all of your hard work, by listening to your instructors, and showing up for yourself - you are incredibly capable of smashing your goals. This sense of achievement gives our students HUGE boosts in confidence.

As you learn striking, self-defense moves, or even learn how to do a push up for the first time you’ll proudly pat yourself on the back and feel great about the person you’re becoming. We love to see this trait develop in our students.

#2 Increased Ability to Focus

Martial Arts is so much fun! You’ll learn all sorts of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and even super secret functional cardio drills. But... when you learn a new skill, you have to concentrate hard on listening to the instructor, then perform what they taught you.

The neat thing is this intense concentration naturally pours into all other areas of your life as you develop laser like focus. It’s one of the most amazing side effects of martial arts — many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your untapped potential, or peak performance.

Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for certain — you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform tasks you once thought impossible.

#3 Totally Fit and Toned

Each class is loaded with fun and challenging exercises. But because you're so focused on performing techniques, and having so much fun, you hardly notice it. Before you know it, the class is over, and you not only learned powerful martial arts, you got a great workout, too.

Being physically fit also boosts energy, mental clarity, and confidence.

#4 Friends & Family

Many martial artists claim they always felt like an “outsider” before they found Martial Arts. Some of our students just never got into organized sports in school or felt that social clubs weren’t for them.

But the same students that tell us how they “never fit in” or weren’t popular seem to rise and shine in class! We provide a safe, accepting environment where we all want each other to succeed. We don’t have bullies or students trying to one up each other.

We are all about support and friendship here. Kids and adults become friends with their classmates and, as a result, our community flourishes.

We provide the kind of environment that fosters camaraderie, encouragement, and motivation. The sense of fitting in and belonging here is more than you can imagine.

#5 You'll Have FUN!

Working out and fun? Yup! Our classes are a blast! Martial arts is a way of life for us and we want you to have a good life too. We work hard but we play hard too. 

Did you know that the average adult only laughs about 20 times per day? Our classes strive to make you above average in every way - and that includes your mental wellbeing.

Laughing and smiles are part of every class as well as high fives and TONS of support.
