  • Martial Arts Training Benefits

    Martial arts training is sought for various reasons including personal protection, competition, self reliance and self worth, fitness, and spiritual development.

    The term martial arts originates from Latin. The literal translation is “arts of Mars”, where Mars represents the roman god of war. In modern day, the term is associated with fightings systems first developed in Asia.

    Martial arts training is commonly categorized by striking systems, like boxing and Muay Thai, by grappling arts, like Greco Roman Wrestling and BJJ, and by hybrid systems, most notable of which is MMA. Though less commonly known, Weapon based systems also exist.

    Though known representations of fighting date back to thousands of years before Christ, it’s presumed that the art of fighting has been practiced, and perhaps codified in one form or another, by mankind since the beginning of time.

    Martial Arts Training Benefits

    Community residents across the US engage in martial arts training because it offers practitioners, both adults and kids, valuable defensive skills coupled with fitness, wellness, and other benefits that are perhaps less obvious, tangible, or easily defined – among these, a sense of accomplishment, self-reliance and self-worth.

    Krav Maga New York offers its practitioners Krav Maga, a form of Martial Arts Training that is less artistic and more martial.

    Unlike perhaps other forms of Martial Arts, Krav Maga is less rooted in tradition. Because it originated in a part of the world where modern day violence remains a constant reality, the system deals primarily with common attacks and the aggressive mindset that a defender must have – even when faced by overwhelming odds. Training techniques and drills deployed by Krav Maga trainers help develop these skills.

    Regardless of the system’s origin and training mode, Krav Maga training benefits are in many ways similar to other Martial Arts training benefits.
