The benefits of learning, studying, and practicing martial arts programs extend from physical health benefits to keeping the mind sharp -- as well as inspiring patience and concentration. In fact, the mental benefits from martial arts programs may possibly be one of the most beneficial brain-training regimes one can find.
Through a balance of patience and dexterity, martial arts programs instill a set of physical and spiritual values in the individual practicing, that drives martial artists to push the boundaries of their abilities. Often referred to as holistic exercise, karate and martial arts moves are utilized to work the human body like a machine, touching-upon every aspect of the human body -- from mind, to body, to spirit.
Elite Defense Systems, based out of Rockford, Illinois, is constantly stressing the mental and physical aspects of karate, martial arts, and other MMA styles. It is their opinion that the use of the arts (such as their Rockford Karate, Rockford Krav Maga, and other mixed martial arts programs) are not just an exercise for the muscles, or game for the mind, or a test of spirituality, but rather an all-around program that perfectly combines techniques that helps students work out every inch of an individual's body -- from flesh to soul.
