Kick yourself in to gear

Figures show that on average, people that stay fit and healthy, especially training in Martial Arts are happier, easier to get on with and more driven Individuals. This is witnessed in the members of HKA, and these are just some of the benefits that are seen on the mats every day.

Being active and having a regular hobby such as kickboxing can help manage a wide range of mental health benefits. It helps to alleviate social anxiety by building confidence within you as a person. It will keep you disciplined and builds on self-control and maintains focus in a productive lifestyle. With the obvious increase in physical strength, flexibility, and endurance that comes with it- kickboxing and martial arts in general is a sure way to a happier healthier life. On top of the health benefits, people learn how to defend themselves, feel safe, make friends, and have a more positive outlook on life. 

Training martial arts helps to improve self-confidence and concentration levels especially from a young age. The guys at HKA have seen first-hand how it can be especially helpful for people who struggle with attention or have trouble focusing, including with ADHD type disorders. 

Kickboxing is also just a great way of losing weight, getting fit and venting all the unwanted anger out of life. It’s a fun way to work out and will challenge you in ways you can’t reciprocate elsewhere. 

HKA works closely with local schools, Academies, East Sussex County Council and police to do their bit in helping the local community.
