I have participated in martial arts my entire adult life and I know many adults may have concerns about injuries ( and I understand we all need to get up the next morning and go to work). Injuries are rare in our martial arts training academy environment; I stress safety in training and there are even more restrictions while sparring to keep you safe.

You will find in the most traditional fighting combative sports like kickboxing, boxing and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) which allow hard blows to the head and body this is where you will find more injuries. In traditional martial arts, the participants will target the whole body but with controlled strikes. However, for those who want more real life scenarios (law-enforcement and, military) the instructor will accommodate.

So do some research on the martial arts styles that will fit your needs and enroll, you will thank yourself for the best decision you have made. If you are located in San Diego or El Cajon California, stop by our martial arts academy and get a first-hand view of how we train and the great workout you will receive.
