Enhance Mobility & Fitness In A Fun, Relaxed Environment

Over 50s Martial Arts

A great way to stay active and meet new people!

Our Over 50’s classes have a special focus on people who have retired from work, but definitely, do not want to be retired from life.

As we age, exercise becomes increasingly important to keep our bodies functional and our minds sharp. Retirement also presents a new set of challenges to us as we exit from the workforce. Loss of social connections, inactivity and a loss of mental challenges can take all a toll on our bodies.

The right type of exercise that enhances health as we age is important. The classes are for those who need a physical activity that will be kind to the body and joints, keep the mind sharp, while enhancing health without causing injuries.

Our over 50's classes are the perfect way to exercise in a friendly, co-operative and social environment. What is great too is that you don't have to get involved in that whole impersonal gym/ cardio exercise scene with noisy music, loud instructors, and trim, fit bodies all around.

Our unique and gentle form of exercise enhances mobility, improves fitness, strengthens the core, and keeps the joints moving!

No martial arts experience is needed!

Mental Health

Staying active keeps the mind sharp!

Fitness With Purpose

By learning new physical skills, cognitive abilities are enhanced. The body and brain are both challenged and develop together.

Social Life

Exercise with your peers, make new friends!

Learn Goal-Setting Skills

Belt testing provides an excellent exercise for kids in learning how to set and achieve goals. Their self-esteem will continue to rise with each accomplishment as they watch their hard work pay off.

Improve Focus and Self-Control

Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD.

A Strong Sense of Respect

The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades, while improving their listening skills at home and in school.
