Six Reasons Women Should Participate in Combat Sports

Here is a great article translated from Portuguese by Natalia Leao from the Brazilian magazine Boa Forma, where the author offers six reasons why women should train in combat sports.  Click here to read the entire article!

I have always been an advocate for women training martial arts simply for the self empowerment aspect of the training, but Natalia offers five other awesome benefits!  In the meantime stop by and check out a Three Harmonies class Mon-Thurs at 6pm, where I have about 5 female students any given night!

"Once seen as brutish, the practice of martial arts is now recognized as an exercise that aggressively combats flab. “The idea isn’t to hurt or show you’re better than your adversary. What you gain from practicing a martial art is loss of fat, relaxation and overall improved health,” Leão further claims."

  1. Shed Fat
  2. Gain Muscle Tone
  3. Relieve Stress
  4. Improve Sex Drive
  5. Increase Brain Function and Memory
  6. Gain a Solid Core and Improve Your Posture
