Dojo in the Morning! Why Martial Arts is Beneficial in Your Golden Years!

Assisted Living Ann Arbor

Looking for a fun way to stay active?

Why is martial arts worth exploring as you age?

If you’re easily bored by exercise, martial arts is an exciting way to get in shape. From head to toe, you’ll build muscle without needing to lift weights, strengthening your coordination, improving your balance, flexibility, and agility when you join a martial arts program regularly.

Best Types of Martial Arts for Your Aging Loved One

Tai Chi – This is a soft type of martial arts that is comprised of flowing movements. 

Jiu-Jitsu – This martial art involves a lot of groundwork, strengthening your entire body and can improve your overall hip flexibility.

Wing Chun – This is a martial art that focuses on open-handed strikes instead of close-fisted strikes.

Partnered with Japanese Martial Arts Center in Ann Arbor

Every two weeks residents at Hillside Terrace Senior Living attend classes geared toward older adults at the Japanese Martial Arts Center (JMAC) in Ann Arbor. All classes are tailored for different levels of fitness, injury issues, and mobility ranges.

You can combine purposeful exercise and healthy lifestyle habits at any age.
