Martial arts training has no age limit and can benefit everyone.
By: Japanese Martial Arts Center
ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Sept. 2, 2022 - PRLog -- When you think of martial arts, you may imagine a dojo full of men in their 20s-30s. This isn't the case! There are plenty of women and older people who study martial arts. Preconceived notions like this might inhibit older people from beginning martial arts training.

Here are some reasons you should start!

Helps you stay physically fit – Older people can sometimes settle into a sedentary lifestyle. A body in rest tends to stay in rest, while a body in motion tends to stay in motion! Martial arts training can help keep you moving and improve your balance, flexibility, and reflexes. You don't have to choose a physically demanding style like jujutsu to get these health benefits! Slow, precise styles like iaido can keep you moving and help you gain more control of your body while being easier on the cardiovascular system.

Good for mental health – Exercise creates endorphins that can boost your mood and relieve stress. Learning new moves and skills can help keep your brain sharp and raise your self-esteem!

Good for personal development – You may have built your life, career, and family, but that doesn't mean you're done! You can always create new goals and build yourself up. Martial arts can help you become more mindful, focused, and a better version of yourself!

Provides community – It can be hard to make friends or connect with people as you age. Martial arts surrounds you with friendly, supportive people who lift you up!

You're never too old to try something new!
