Martial arts is the perfect activity for improving agility through muscle and joint training! Once you make ATA workouts a part of your regular routine, you will find that mobility makes its way into other parts of your life, too. The secret to keep moving is the start moving!
2. Strength & Power
To be an effective martial artist, you must be strong and powerful. This is perfect, because ATA workouts are designed to improve these attributes in students! Whether you need to properly defend yourself or perform under pressure, your training will help you maximize your explosiveness. No matter what opponent, strength and power will always be to the advantage of the person who possesses it.
3. Improved Flexibility
Flexibility is a vital part of martial arts -- but it’s about way more than just those high level kicks! Having improved flexibility allows for more mobility which also helps with injury prevention. Being more flexible is also important when you’re trying to evade an opponent. Stretch yourself to new limits with ATA training!

From an early age, ATA students begin seeing the benefits of increased coordination with their training. Being more aware of your body’s positioning and having improved focus allows martial artists of all ages to develop a secure and steady base for performance.
5. Lowered Blood Pressure & Heart Rate
Martial artists work a lot of muscles in their training, and the heart is one that reaps many of the benefits! The cardiovascular workouts in ATA require a fitness level that will help lower blood pressure and improve your heart rate. Getting heart healthy has never been more fun!

The key to being a well-rounded martial artist is training your body and mind. Life skills such as respect, focus and discipline help establish a mental concentration that is beneficial is all areas of human growth. Regularly practicing memorization and acuity helps with performance both on and off the mats!
