Weight Loss Through Martial Arts

There are so many exercise and weight loss programs available these days it’s tough to know where to start. I eventually managed to convince my good friend Alex to come along to our Martial Arts and Fitness Classes one day. He managed to lose over 100 pounds by training regularly and making a few recommended changes to his eating habits. His testimonial below is a great example of the possible weight loss through Martial Arts. People benefit in so many different ways!

I started Jiu Jitsu training 6 months ago. Having been severely overweight (100 pound plus) I was somewhat reluctant to begin any kind of regiment that would interfere with my less than healthy lifestyle. Fortunately I started a new job where I got to know Sensei Malcolm.

After about 6 months of prodding by him, and procrastinating by myself, I decided to give it a try. It was one of the best decisions of my life.

When I started I had the usual fears of starting a new program with a lot of people who had been there longer and had more training than myself, but the fears were soon put to rest by the helpfulness of the people that I thought I would feel intimidated by. Not only were they eager to help, but they also gave me the confidence to pursue a complete change in my life as well as my attitude towards it.

Maybe someday you may see my story in a book, with the foreword being a tribute to Sensei Malcolm,  they also helped me develop a better nutritional plan than the fast food one that I had taught myself, and the other students who constantly surprise me with their support.

Drop by the club and feel free to talk Sensei Malcolm or myself about the complete life change that I have achieved with the help of this training.

If you knew me then and now you wouldn’t believe it, I still have trouble doing so. And if I can do it so can you.

Just a footnote, after getting a physical examination after training for only 4 months, my Doctor actually shook my hand and said he had never seen such a drastic change in a persons health, which by the way he said is now perfect.

Thank you

Alex Wilson
