Benefits of Karate to Your Mental Health

The Karate Path to Mastery

Kids, teens, adults and senior citizens benefit from practicing karate. Individual goals are set. The initial goal may be to improve physical fitness and learn a martial art. Practitioners learn that karate is more than a fitness routine or effective method of self-defense. Karate is steeped in character-building traditions that are incorporated into the very first lesson.

Studies show that long term training causes positive social and psychological changes. An increase in self-confidence is the most noticeable transformation.

Fear of attack is gripping society on a personal level. More people are nervous walking down a street. Karate does not advocate attacking or arguing with opponents. Karate increases awareness and teaches self-control. Karate teaches practical self-defense techniques in case the need arises. Understanding karate techniques and how to apply the methods boosts self-confidence and self-reliance. Difficult situations are assessed more calmly and reacted to more appropriately.

Karate teaches movements in a sequential manner. One movement is mastered before another technique is introduced. Until it is performed correctly, a student may feel frustrated. Doing a movement over and over again may seem to repetitious and boring. Students learn to put aside distractions and concentrate. They learn the value of sticking to a boring or difficult task. The ability to focus on a task is valuable at home, in school, in sports and at work.

Karate teaches respect for self and others. Poise and leadership skills are developed. Advanced students encourage and help other students to learn new techniques. Depression is reduced, anger is redirected and bragging is replaced with demonstrating self-confidence. When a new technique is mastered, self-esteem rises. Higher self-esteem helps someone resist peer pressure.

The karate traditions and values carefully handed down from the past to a current student contributes to a sense of place and belonging. Close bonds are formed, and friendships may last a lifetime.
