The best martial arts for fat lost and fitness

Martial Arts can save your life but it can also improve your fitness and consequently fat loss. The reason some martial arts are so well suited to promoting fat loss and improved body composition is because they blend functional movements with strength training, cardiovascular conditioning, agility, mobility and flexibility, spatial awareness, and gross motor control.


The top four Martial Arts for fat loss and fitness are;

1. Judo/Hapkido is not the good choice when it comes to weight loss. These fighting styles do not use a lot of jumping up and down, moving around, or striking.

2. It is one of the most active martial arts that is extremely hard to learn and practice. Capoeira comes from Brazil and is the blend of dance and fighting and if practiced regularly can slim your body down in no time.

3. Karate is a good bodyweight martial art as it focuses more on the upper body strikes with great toning and body strengthening. This method focuses on flexibility and strength using a combination of traditional methods and modern exercise.

4. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) beats all other martial arts if you want to burn calories fast. This Martial Art will have you shedding those calories fast as it focuses on throwing a punches or kicks, and wrestling around.  It’s an intense combination of free weight and bodyweight exercises, calisthenics, light sparring, grappling and hitting various bags or pads. 


The martial arts have a variety of purposes in life, from building character to training for self-defence, and of course for fitness and weight loss as discussed above. When choosing which Martial Arts to participate in, know that whichever style you chose from the list discussed, you will be sure to see fat loss and build fitness as a result.
