This place has become like a second home to me and I'm greatful to have a place so close to where I live that is as patient and informative as P3. The coaches are extremely friendly and P3 has helped to improve my Jiu-Jitsu and my fitness. I recommend this place to anyone looking to learn an amazing martial art or just improve their physical health.

Very nice group of people, they just wanna see you grow, and you will grow here. They're a Jiu Jitsu school primarily, but they do have a Judo class on Tuesdays at 8pm. You'll feel right at home here

Hands down best facility around! I signed our son up last year and made multiple phone calls and searched online to find the best school for our son. P3 is extremely clean, professional and you can tell they all are passionate about what they do. He now has so much love for BJJ and looks up to all the coaches. You guys are awesome! My husband and I have recently joined the adult classes and I highly recommend.

My son had his first trial class today and he loved it! The entire staff was super helpful in answering all our questions. Facility is clean and it is a very professional setting. I have a feeling our son will be signing up after the trial is over! The way the coaches interact with the children is very admirable and they definitely work to make learning fun for the kids!

P3 Martial Arts has become my kids 2nd home. My son who is 7.5 has been at P3 for about 1m5 yrs and my 5 year old daughter is in her 2nd month. Everything about P3 is so awesome and its super clean!

If I had to pick one thing that really makes P3 stand out from other martial arts schools it is the coaching staff! They are passionate about BJJ and teaching the kids. When my kids see their coaches on the mats training/practicing they get so excited! This school cares about what their students are doing on and off the mats. Truly amazing role models!

Thank you to P3 for encouraging my kids to better themselves everyday

This is our second year working with the P3 team and it won’t be our last. We came in and asked if they could set us up a self defense class geared specially around safety for women in role at our company. They worked with me to be sure to target any situations the team could encounter in life and in the workplace-helping them realize that’s it’s not all about your size! 100lbs or 300lbs, it is about knowing the techniques. I highly recommend this team as they are extremely knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable! Keep up the great work guys!

Protect Your Heart with Martial Arts

What you may not know is that martial arts are great for the heart. In fact, the cardiac
benefits of martial arts give a whole new meaning to the idea of cardiovascular fitness.

With that in mind, here are some ways that taking martial arts classes can protect and
strengthen your heart.

Martial Arts Raise the Heart Rate

The first way that martial arts can help the heart is by raising your heart rate when you work
out. The heart is a muscle and it needs to be worked. When you take a martial arts class, your
heart rate is elevated.

The benefit of raising the heart rate is that it oxygenates the blood, and helps promote
calorie burning even after you’re done working out. People of all ages need to keep their
hearts pumping, and martial arts is a great way to do it.

Martial Arts Lower Blood Pressure

Did you know that a high-intensity martial arts workout can help lower your blood pressure?
It’s true. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a leading contributor to heart disease.

When you work out, your heart becomes stronger – and that means that it can pump blood
more efficiently than it can without exercise. The less effort your heart has to expend on
pumping blood, the lower your blood pressure is.

Martial Arts Lower Cholesterol

LDL cholesterol – the so-called “bad” cholesterol” – is a contributing factor in heart disease.
Regular participation in martial arts helps you lose weight and that decreases the amount of
LDL cholesterol in your blood.

There’s evidence that working out also shrinks the proteins that carry cholesterol through the
bloodstream, making them less dangerous to the heart.

On a related note, regular vigorous exercise – such as the kind you get in a martial arts
workout – helps to increase HDL or “good” cholesterol.

Martial Arts Reduces Stress

One thing that separates martial arts from many other forms of exercise is that it requires
mental stillness combined with physical exertion.

Mental stillness contributes to mindfulness, a practice that can significantly decrease stress
and anxiety in both children and adults.

Considering that there is a direct link between stress and heart health (stress contributes to
high blood pressure and related issues), the fact that participating in martial arts can reduce
stress is a huge benefit to the heart.

Conclusion

This month, why not give your heart a boost by adding martial arts to your workout routine? In addition to the benefits already mentioned, martial arts training also helps to improve discipline, build muscle coordination, and increase self-confidence.
