Benefits of Karate to Your Physical Health

Karate: The Total Body Workout

Karate is more than an effective method of self-defense. It is practiced by men and women, youngsters and senior citizens for its many health benefits. Karate offers a total body workout.

Classes begin with warm-up exercises in which students flex, tone, stretch and strengthen muscles. The muscles are prepared for a more vigorous workout. The warm-up exercises help avoid injuries.

Cardiovascular health improves. The cardiovascular system includes the heart, veins and arteries through which blood flows. The heart becomes stronger. During warm-up exercises the heart rate increases, breathing becomes deeper and more oxygen is carried throughout the body. Karate helps lower blood pressure, improves circulation and strengthens the nervous system. Everyone feels more energized.

Karate is designed to gradually build muscles and bone density. The martial arts movements work different sets of core muscles in the arms, sides and legs. The muscles are toned and elongated, endurance improves and reflexes become fast. The power, range and speed of movement is increased.

Balance is crucial. It is easy to push someone over. The skeleton is designed to keep someone upright, and it takes a stable stance, proper angles and weight transference to stay upright when an aggressor is trying to make someone fall.

Eye, hand and foot coordination improve, and concentration is needed for each technique. Precise positioning is required before, during and after a movement. Karate maneuvers are practiced over and over again until they become automatic. Automatic responses eliminate hesitation in difficult situations.

Karate is a great weight loss program. Sixty minutes of practice burns about 500 calories. Weight is lost and the muscles toned at the same time.

In karate, muscles are exercised and stiff joints are loosened. Karate leads someone to peak physical shape. People in top condition perform well at work and other activities throughout the day.
