Why More Moms are Taking Karate: Martial Arts for Women

Women’s Self-Defense Classes

More moms than ever are taking martial arts classes for women, and it’s easy to see why. These classes are about so much more than what you’ve seen in the movies. Read on to learn more!

 

Relieve Stress and Tone Up With Women’s Martial Arts

Martial arts for women

Moms are so awesome. They give and give of themselves for their kids and everyone in their lives, sometimes without expecting anything in return. That selflessness is huge! We want to start by saying that we seriously appreciate all of the work that goes into being a mom in any capacity.

We also understand just how much of that work can weigh on you. If you’re a mom that stays at home, that’s stressful. If you’re a mom who works, that’s stressful too. If you’ve got one kid it’s stressful, and ten kids are even more stressful!

Every person is being confronted with stress in the modern world we live in, and we’re all figuring out a way to deal with it. We can say with confidence that martial arts classes help hundreds of women in our Houston community melt their stress and become the best version of themselves they can be. How? Two words: kicks and punches.

Oftentimes stress is a mental pressure we put on ourselves, pumping ourselves up and kind of catastrophizing the future. Again, it’s easy to be stressed out as a mom, you’ve got your own life stuff going on, and your kid’s stuff on top of it. Moving your body in any form will help get that adrenaline out of your body and reduce stress pretty much immediately. Martial Arts is special in that you kick and punch your way to stress-free thinking. There’s something about getting all that tension, frustration, and anxious energy out through your arms and legs that feels amazing.

But that’s not all, martial arts is a full-body sport. That means you’re working every muscle to coordinate your body and get the moves right. You’re toning everything, not just your arms and legs. A lot of our members choose women’s martial arts as an alternative to the gym because they’re constantly moving in class (no more boring workouts!) and having fun.

Martial arts is great because it’s an individual sport in a group setting, so while you’re working on your own self-defense combos, everyone else is learning this amazing skill as well. That sense of community and women’s empowerment is what helps a lot of our moms in martial arts classes finally let the stress go and embrace their awesomeness. Not only are moms relieving stress and getting toned in martial arts classes, but they’re also learning a life-saving skill: self-defense.

 

Get Fit Fast Through Self-Defense

Martial arts for women

We live in a world that is unjust, so a woman is often confronted with more self-defense situations than a man. As we work to change that fact on a global level, more and more people are realizing that self-defense is one of those things you don’t ever want to “wish you’d learned” sooner.

A lot of moms (and all women in general) have found it really rewarding and confidence-boosting to learn self-defense skills from our classes. Some studies have shown that women who take self-defense training feel more confident in their bodies and more confident in public.

Also, have you ever heard of “mom aggression”? It’s this primal feeling mothers get when someone’s threatening the life they gave birth to (or adopted) and have a deep attachment to. Moms protecting their young in the wild, like bears and lions, go completely nuts on (read: maul and destroy) their predators. Human moms are restrained by these little things called laws that prevent us from mauling each other, but God forbid someone ever comes after you or your kids. You’ll be grateful to know how to protect your life and theirs through self-defense.

One more thing, you’re constantly showing your kids the best way to live. How to use a fork and knife properly, and what to say to comfort a loved one. If we passed down self-defense just as easily to our kids, what would life be like, especially for our daughters, our future women? You really never know what ripple effects this life-changing skill can have. Pass down one of the best skills you can, the ability to defend yourself in any situation. Your kids may thank you one day.

 

Mental Benefits of Women’s Martial Arts: Confidence and Self-Respect

Martial arts for women

This is a biggie for a lot of women taking our martial arts classes, especially moms. Again, we live in an unjust world, so women are often taught to criticize their bodies constantly and even “hate” parts of their bodies in ways that men don’t have to deal with. This translates to women being way less confident in their physical bodies and their mental capabilities than they deserve to be.

As we’re helping you tone your body and get fit through our classes, we use martial arts to build an inner confidence that no outer appearance can touch. Really! Think of it this way, if you knew that you could handle any physical situation or altercation that came your way, wouldn’t you feel more confident in yourself? If you just smashed your fitness goals and persevered through class, pushing your mind and body in new ways, wouldn’t you hold your head up high coming out of your martial arts class?

Our instructors are world-class teachers who know a lot about self-defense and martial arts. But they also know a thing or two about the mindset behind confidence and success, perseverance through adversity, and other important life skills that took them from beginner to master. (One of our favorite sayings: a black belt is a white belt that never gave up!)

This is where that “I am amazing” confidence comes from, believing in yourself, even when you don’t want to, and getting it done. Reaching new heights, handling it. When you know you’re amazing because of your own opinion of yourself, you automatically become more confident, and you’ll be glowing from the inside out.

And, again, moms are passing things down to their kids all the time, whether they know it or not. Why not pass down that confidence and a healthy dose of self-respect? Why not show them through your actions how a leader really perseveres?

It sounds cheesy, but it’s true: We help create bully-proof kids in our kids martial arts classes, and in our adult martial arts classes, we help moms negate whatever their inner bullies say through their true confidence.

In conclusion: Stress relief, physical fitness, self-defense, and confidence are four reasons that more moms than ever are turning to martial arts to try something new! We have a risk-free (yes, really risk-free!) Meyerland Martial Arts trial at a fraction of the cost to help you dip your toe in and soak up some of these amazing benefits.
