MARTIAL ARTS FOR ADULTS
Our adult classes are a great way to get in shape, to keep in shape, or to get into even better shape. Our classes are a total body workout that includes flexibility, strength and plyometric training. They help release the stress of everyday life and help you become more productive in everything you do. This class emphasizes some of the more practical elements of Taekwondo training as well as offering the excitement of sparring. For those students who are interested, we offer opportunities to compete in tournaments.
BENEFITS OF MARTIAL ARTS FOR ADULTS
More Energy and Greater Productivity
As busy adults, productivity is key in our everyday lives. Exercise increases productivity by keeping the endorphins going and the brain functioning well.
Martial arts is a group activity: you have “positive peer pressure” to stick with it and a group to help give you that little push to stick to your exercise goals.
Discipline and Focus
In our ever-connected world of iPhones, iPads, blackberries and other smart devices, we’re multi-tasking more than ever before. On top of that, people demand our time, compete for our attention and we’re forced to shift focus constantly. As a result, we have a harder and harder time following through on tasks and staying on track. Yes, our digital, button-clicking culture is changing us rapidly.
As a result, one of the rarest and most valued character traits these days is focus. And this is where martial arts training helps. It gives you a short break from digital demands, improves your powers of concentration and helps you really focus. This can even alleviate many of the negatives associated with our digital world.
Our martial arts program teaches focus and concentration through rhythmic breathing and relaxation, step-by-step repetitive movements, personal attention, positive reinforcement, adherence to etiquette and rules (structure), group reinforcement and a sense of belonging. For these reasons, we help build focus and concentration better than exercise alone.
Great Family Activity
More often than not, one parent is driving one child to soccer, and the other parent is driving to gymnastics. Parents are sitting on the sidelines, talking on their cell phones, visiting with the other parents and just trying to kill time while the kids are doing their activities. Yes, it’s great that parents act as the cheering section, but there can be more, much more.
The MAIN BENEFIT for parents and kids training together is very simple. Taekwondo helps close the generation gap in families. Imagine working on the same curriculum (obviously how the material is introduced and taught is different for adults and kids) but you have a common basis for setting goals, training, advancing in rank, tournament competition and supporting one another.
Martial arts helps burn fat and calories, builds strength, strips away stress and gives you a little “competition” in your athletic life. At Lang’s Martial Arts we keep exercise interesting. Since martial arts has an ever-increasing series of challenges (belts / ranks, competitions, weapons clinics), it keeps things fresh. You constantly learn new skills and techniques without even realizing that you’re exercising. You walk out of class feeling invigorated, the endorphins are flowing and the time flew by!
While many of us in our professional lives set and strive towards various goals, many times these are career related, not mental and physical, as they are in martial arts. Our martial arts program provides a comprehensive training program that clearly outlines your goals and development. Your mind and your body are part of the formula every stop along the way. Martial arts takes you from square one and offers clear milestones along your path.
Whether you’re 5 or 50, a white belt or a black belt, you’re always working on goal achievement and towards a sense of personal victory.
Think confidence is just for kids? Think again. Studies find a strong correlation between adults with self-confidence and career advancement, success in relationships and productivity.
And here, too, our martial arts program helps. As you make progress through the belts, you become more confident in your ability to defend yourself. And this confidence comes through in the boardroom as well as the street.
Our martial arts program also helps you build confidence by encouraging you to succeed. This is one of the great benefits of martial arts at any age. When you’re self-assured, you approach more challenges with a can-do attitude, and as we all know, confidence goes a long way in breeding success.
All martial arts are certainly fun to do as an exercise and keep your mind off the physical exertion you’re experiencing, but don’t ever forget that you’re also building self-defense skills as well. We will help you improve your agility, balance, endurance, flexibility, and even your strength. It teaches you how to defend yourself physically as well as how to avoid physical confrontations in the first place.
