Martial arts has got to be one of the best forms of health and fitness (not biased or anything) Not only is pretty much every martial arts you can do an incredible full body workout, but what it does for your mental health is incredible as well! Now I'm not saying joining a boxing gym and start sparring. Even just going to martial arts based fitness classes are so beneficial. If you think about it, not only are you working out, but attacking a punch bag or hitting mitts, is such a great way to get all of that anger out (you can envision punching someone who annoys you).
If you wanted to start doing something more competitive and but you’re a bit too anxious about getting hit in the face? Try grappling types of martial arts, like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling etc… You wont be getting punched in the face (so often), but it will put you in a competitive environment to help you on self defence!
I honestly think everyone needs to do it, especially for themselves! When you can, find something you’re excited to try, go for it. It can be intimidating, but you’ll be surprised how approachable and nice the trainers and people actually are when you join their community! You’ve got nothing to lose! Try it!
