Stress Relief Through Kickboxing Classes
Stress, the number one killer in the United States. It leads to more illness and deaths then most diseases. Heart disease which is one of the top killers in the United States is most of the time a direct result from stress. Most adults live with this on a daily basis, but for the students at Tiger Schulmann’s they get a chance to relieve that stress everyday. Basically they go on a mini vacation.
Stress can affect us in so many negative medical ways
When I was a young boy my parents were going through a divorce, I was about 4 years old when they seperated. I started becoming angry and violent at home hitting everything. I even started putting holes in the Sheetrock. My mother was directed to take me to a therapist to help me with my anger and stresses of dealing with the divorce. The therapist told my mother to have me take the pillows off of the couch and go to town on it and hit it as much and as hard as I possibly can. She also told my mother to put me in Karate and 22 years later I am still here. The reason why the therapist told my mother to have me beat up the couch cushions is because I can take out all of my stresses on something safe and I would release that built up emotions by exercising.
That’s exactly what my students at the Tiger Schulmann’s in Nanuet New York does. All of our classes have heavy bags that are very forgiving. Besides learning how to actually defend yourself the students get a chance to take out all of their anger, aggression and STRESSES out on the bags. While they are huffing and puffing their minds forget about their daily stresses and focus on the task at hand. We teach authentic KICKBOXING, and while learning actual self defense techniques your mind is focused on improving each punch and kick. For the hour that you’re here you will go on a mini vaction forgetting about those daily stresses and only focusing on you.
