Martial Arts for the Unfit

By Creekgirl 7 January 2011 25

Does anyone have any recommendations for a martial arts class? I am an overweight female in my twentys looking to try a martial art for fitness, the discipline and to meet other people. I have had a look on the internet, but the websites all seem to feature young men, I was hoping for a class that would be a little more diverse. I want to feel comfortable with my ineptness.

I was also hoping to find a discipline where you don’t have to shout/grunt everytime you make a movement. The descriptions on the websites don’t mention if this is a feature of the discipline.

Any area would do but I would prefer southside or the city.

Thanks.

What’s Your opinion?

“You could always try Les Mill’s choreographed Body Combat – that’s an aerobic class held at gyms around town (eg Northside Fitness Centre) that has all sorts of martial arts/tai chi bits to it. The class I go to has mostly women, and its huge fun.”

And is useless from a self-defence/martial arts perspective

I’d also strongly recommend National Tae Kwon Do. I found it to be a great workout (and I was recovering from an injury at the time I started training there so was pretty unfit and not sure what I’d be able to do). The instructors are all good, especially at Kingston. You’ll learn a bunch about Tae Kwon Do and yourself. And most of the classes are an even mix of guys and girls. As a girl I never felt out of place or outmanned, so to speak. Can’t recommend it strongly enough.
