It’s been an amazing 8 years at Master Pattillos karate school, I’ve been taking karate with him since I was 8 and I’ve loved coming to class every day since. Every class is filled with not only karate practice but fun and real life styled situations to stay safe in and outside of karate. Master Pattillo always makes class enjoyable and a blast to be a part of. I’ve learned a lot of valuable skills from taking karate I’ve learned self motivation, self control, I’ve worked on many different forms, kicks, punches, and self defense. This is an amazing karate school and I would recommend it to anyone starting out with karate or anyone who wants to have fun, get exercise and learn self defense. I don’t plan to switch schools ever and hopefully I’ll earn many more belts with Master Pattillo.

My grand-daughter has been attending Master Pattillo's classes for 7 weeks now. I love observing as it is a real pleasure to watch someone so skilled in working with children. My grand-daughter wants to give her own review so I will let her continue from here. "I love karate so much and I love to make new friends at karate. Master Pattillo is so nice and really never gets mad at me. I just love attending at this karate place with my new friends. So I am really enjoying karate a lot. Thank you for teaching me all these things in karate. I think a made a really good decision going to Master Pattillo's Karate."

What a great experience this has been. My granddaughter Josslyn has learned so much in this class. I love the way the children listen and follow directions from Master Pattello and his staff. We would highly recommend you signing your child or grandchild up for his Martial Arts classes.

What a great place for kids to learn some amazing skills, make new friends, and become more disciplined. Master Patillo and Ms.Jackson have amazing patience with all of the children and make sure the kids are learning and having fun at the same time. I am super amazed how they can remember each child's name without hesitation or error and remember each child's strengths and weaknesses. My kids have been excited about the new techniques they've learned and all of the fun "extras" that Master Patillo includes in his program. Thanks for all that you do!

5 Health & Fitness Benefits of Martial Arts for Adults

5 Health & Fitness Benefits of Martial Arts for Adults

If you are looking for a way to improve your health or get in better shape, you may not need to hit the gym. Instead, you should head to Master Pattillo Martial Arts near downtown Winder. Adult martial arts could be the fitness solution that you have been searching for. Discover the benefits of martial arts for your health.

#1 – Improve Your Cardiovascular Health

Perhaps the greatest benefit of adult martial arts is improved heart health. Doctors generally recommend between 20 and 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 3 to 5 days per week. 

Martial arts will get you up off the couch. Whether are practicing at home or attending an adult martial arts class, you can easily hit at least 20-minutes of cardio. 

This gets your blood pumping and puts stress on your heart, allowing you to increase your heart health. With improved heart health also comes a lower risk of heart disease and stroke.

#2 – A Full Body Workout for Weight Loss and Fitness

Adult martial arts can also provide a complete full body workout, helping with weight loss and overall fitness. You get a high-aerobic workout that targets quite a few different muscle groups. 

Each martial arts session can help you burn additional calories, while also increasing your endurance. In fact, a typical hour-long session of adult martial arts can burn about 500 calories. For those trying to lose weight, this could be all that you need to finally blast the fat in trouble areas, such as your abdominal region.

#4 – Improve Your Flexibility and Balance

By practicing adult martial arts, you should be able to begin improving your flexibility and balance. You gain a better sense of balance, becoming more in tune with your body. 

The various moves that you will learn provide the advantage of increasing your flexibility, keeping you limber. 

In a way, this is similar to the benefits provided by yoga. You are extending your arms and legs, stretching, and performing aerobic moves that will help with your flexibility.

#4 – Increase Your Self Esteem with Adult Martial Arts

The fourth benefit to adult martial arts is about how you can increase your self-esteem. This is achieved in multiple ways. 

By getting in better shape, you will feel better about your body. By learning self-defense techniques, you will have more confidence. This combination will have a tremendous impact on your self-esteem.

#5 – Gain Improved Focus and Concentration

Adult martial arts is not just about self-defense. You are also learning how to be still and in tune with your body. This teaches focus and concentration. 

You need to be able to observe your opponent and focus on how you can use their movement to your advantage. These are skills that carry through to everyday life, helping you with concentration. 

These same benefits that lead to improved focus and concentration can also increase your mental clarity and leave you in a calm, relaxed mood. 

Studies show that an adult martial arts session can release endorphins that make you happy and content. This lasts for several hours after your workout is complete.
