How Martial Arts Can Help Fight Childhood Obesity

In the past 30 years, the rate of childhood obesity has doubled. As of 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents are overweight or obese. Preventing childhood obesity also prevents diseases like type two diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and more. Unhealthy habits often begin in youth, so it is important that your child is on the right track. The main areas of concern with children are poor eating patterns and lack of physical activity.

There are so many reasons for women to start MMA training. Unfortunately, women are often the primary victims in abductions, rapes, or domestic abuse. Women ages 18-36 are at the greatest risk of being victims of domestic violence. Situations like these could change your life drastically. When you train MMA, you become more confident in knowing that you’ve done something to be able to lessen the chances of any of those things happening to you. With self- defense knowledge women can be empowered to be survivors and not victims.  Once you know how to defend yourself against situations like this, the way you carry yourself changes too. Self-defense and self-confidence go hand in hand in this particular circumstance and it benefits you throughout your life.

Not only will you have the skills to defend yourself in dangerous situations, but MMA is a lot more fun than just the regular routine at the gym. It’s always something new, so you’ll never get caught doing the same thing every day. Many people struggle with their weight and body image. But they also struggle with getting to the gym and doing something about it. The thought of the gym irks a lot of people. But when you do something like MMA, you’re doing an activity that’s enjoyable and not just solely for losing weight. When you train, you will never feel un-motivated or dissatisfied because the experience is exciting and something to look forward to doing.

MMA also gives you the chance to get involved, interact, and socialize with other people. It teaches you to work and cooperate with others and that skill can be applied to your job, and just every- day life.

Here what a female student at Precision has to say about the classes:

“I then found precision and went in to test the waters. I’m glad I did! I have tackled many of my fears and have really taken a liking to the jujitsu classes. I am so pleased with the instructors, and the atmosphere. It’s a great learning environment and for people like me it has brought me out of my shell and helped me get back into exercise and health. I recommend precision to anyone and everyone. It pushes your limits without breaking your body, it keeps you desiring to learn more, and gives you focus that is unwavering” – Hope Ackerly
