Top 10 reasons you should do martial arts or some sort of combat sport


Ever since I was a kid, I have been fascinated with fighting whether it was wrestling, kunfu, boxing or karate. Movies with violence are often PG 10 but I was watching Bruce Lee, Jean Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Jackie Chan, Jet Lee and a whole lot of other guys kick ass long before I was 10. Me and my friends would copy all their moves and have these little fighting competitions. Violence is not okay but sometimes its necessary but today I am not discussing that. I want to give you real good reasons why you should take fighting classes.

There are a variety of fighting disciplines available for you to take part in for example mixed martial arts(MMA), karate, judo, wrestling, grapling, taekwondo, kung-fu, boxing, kick boxing , and the list goes on.

All you have to do is find the one that you like best and here is why its a good idea:

  • Combat sport is good for your health as they are a good exercise if you want to be fit because there is high activity that causes you to work and sweat and increase your heart rate.
  • some of these disciplines offer a lot of flexibility and strength exercises which could help you prevent future injuries.
  • most of these sports have a great emphasis on relaxation techniques such as meditation, they help improve your concentration in and out of the gym.
  • They will help you to be able to defend yourself if you are ever under attack
  • They teach these skills for recreation and teach good values to students, fighting someone is always the last resort, these sports do not teach you to attack people they teach self defence.
  • If you get good at these sports you could compete and win prizes
  • These sports are great for venting and stress relief
  •  Sport of this sort helps kids with their behaviour who would otherwise be causing trouble all over.
  • There is big money in sports like boxing wrestling and MMA if you are still young enough to do it professionally and can handle the pain.
  • And lastly you interact with other when you participate in these sports so there is a sense of community and building connections and new friendships
