MPAMA is the best Martial Arts School. All the instructors are very kind and take great interest in teaching the kids not only to practice Martial Arts but also to become good people. The kids are taught self discipline and self control. We are very happy to have chosen MPAMA for our child.

MPAMA is an 11 on a scale of 10. Professionalism is exceptional. Instructors and staff are always helpful (and with a smile). My son has been attending for 4 years. Never have to drag him. At least 3 days a week...always ready to go. He has made friends and feels like he is a part of a team with his class and instructors. The best!!!

My daughter is a student of MPAMA since 2 years. The school is disciplined and well organized. Along with the main instructor, there will be assistant instructors for every 2,3 kids, which is very helpful to the kids in learning the right way. Apart from Martial Arts, they teach good manners and build values into the kids.
All the instructors are with high energy levels and patience, Very attentive with every student and every detail. So much impressed and inspired by the team, I joined the Adult Martial Arts program last year, Now I am a green belt. Long way to go both for my kid and me.

All the Instructors are very skilled, knowledgeable, polite and very patient. They all genuinely work with you to achieve your goal. The adult fitness class is my "Happy Hour" - the class is so much fun and you don't even realize how hard you're working out! My son's martial arts class helps him with focus, concentration & discipline and he totally enjoys it. From my perspective, this is the best martial arts school in NJ and I highly recommend it!!! Kudos and thank you to Master Peter's for opening a great school and maintaining its great reputation!!!

I joined the adult fitness kickboxing classes in April. I have lost 13 lbs, gained muscle and lowered my body fat level. The classes are great, challenging, fun and varied. The instructors keep us motivated too.

Protect Your Heart with Martial Arts

 

Every year, the American Heart Association celebrates Heart Month to raise awareness about heart

disease and heart health.

 

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 Raise 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 Lower 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 Lower Cholesterol

 

LDL cholesterol – the so-called “bad” cholesterol” – is a contributing factor in heart disease.

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.

 

Conclusion

 

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?
