Nothing but praise for Excel Martials Arts and the team there.. We have been coming here nearly 4 years now and I cant tell you how they have helped my son develop his confidence, strength and fitness. As a parent I got so into it that I joined last year during lockdown while suffering with a back injury and will now be grading for my 4th belt. If you want to get fit, meet some amazing and inspiring people and fancy giving martial arts a try then don't waste any more time looking elsewhere, this is the place to be.

I often hear about bullying in academys . I wanted my children to become more confident and have the skills to defend their self if they have to. My boys joined Excel Martial Arts at the beginning of 2021. It was recommended to us by one of the academy Mums. They loved it straight away. The coaches are very professional, great with children. After seeing their success, I took the opportunity to join the Ladies kickboxing class , and never looked back since. I tried many exercise classes, running , gym.. but never stuck to anything. This is the first exercise what I thoroughly enjoy. My boys made lots of friends, enjoy going on Excel events like Jump Inc., Halloween and recently signed up for their first Summer camp with Excel. I would highly recommend Excel Martial Arts to everyone.

Absolutely brilliant! The coaches, reception staff, facilities, everything is just great. My little boy Axel always has tons of fun and his confidence has come on so much. I was a bit worried has he started mini strike just after his 4th birthday but the level of support and kindness to him has been absolutely unreal. Would recommend to anyone.

So impressed with the service given at Excel, coaches give 100% and teach the kids to too. Been to other karate classes and nothing comes close to the Excel experience!

What you may not know is that martial arts are great for the heart. In fact, the cardiac benefits of martial arts give a whole new meaning to the idea of cardiovascular fitness.
With that in mind, here are some ways that taking martial arts classes can protect and strengthen your heart.
Martial Arts Raises the Heart Rate
The first way that martial arts can help the heart is by raising your heart rate when you work out. The heart is a muscle and it needs to be worked. When you take a martial arts class, your heart rate is elevated.
The benefit of raising the heart rate is that it oxygenates the blood, and helps promote calorie burning even after you’re done working out. People of all ages need to keep their hearts pumping, and martial arts is a great way to do it.
Martial Arts Lowers Blood Pressure
Did you know that a high-intensity martial arts workout can help lower your blood pressure? It’s true. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a leading contributor to heart disease.
When you work out, your heart becomes stronger – and that means that it can pump blood more efficiently than it can without exercise. The less effort your heart has to expend on pumping blood, the lower your blood pressure is.
Martial Arts Lowers Cholesterol
LDL cholesterol – the so-called “bad” cholesterol” – is a contributing factor in heart disease 1. Regular participation in martial arts helps you lose weight and that decreases the amount of LDL cholesterol in your blood.
There’s evidence that working out also shrinks the proteins that carry cholesterol through the bloodstream, making them less dangerous to the heart.
On a related note, regular vigorous exercise – such as the kind you get in a martial arts workout – helps to increase HDL or “good” cholesterol.
Martial Arts Reduces Stress
One thing that separates martial arts from many other forms of exercise is that it requires mental stillness combined with physical exertion.
Mental stillness contributes to mindfulness, a practice that can significantly decrease stress and anxiety in both children and adults.
Considering that there is a direct link between stress and heart health (stress contributes to high blood pressure and related issues), the fact that participating in martial arts can reduce stress is a huge benefit for the heart.
In addition to the benefits already mentioned, martial arts training also helps to improve discipline, build muscle coordination, and increase self-confidence.
This month, why not give your heart a boost by adding martial arts to your workout routine?
