Is Karate a good way for kid to burn some kilos?

Yes, absolutely!! HOWEVER, that Karate must be a challenge, and not play time!! Going through the ropes with very little challenge, offers very little. DO IT...TRAIN IT...but with an resolve!!

Claude van Damme was a skinny kid when he first started his martial art training.

So to lose weight or to gain weight, are both heading in the same direction to become fighting fit and healthy.

I think all of the kids in our TKD school will claim that McDonald's is their favorite place to eat. With obesity as high as it is now, it's amazing more hasn't been done by the fast food places, or to the fast food places (through regulation) to ensure that nutritional needs are met, while caloric intake is moderated.

Some might take it as an insult to turn martial art facilities in to fat farms..

You wouldn't expect to learn martial arts in a weight lose facility, even if they have a heavy bag to beat on.

As there are specialized places for loosing weight, gaining muscle or being more fit.

As martial art clubs are becoming more and more not what they were set up for, they will and some have lost their main purpose and intent.

To loose weight of course everyone knows about diet and exercise; if it was just that easy.

Keep in mind "The after burn effect"

It is not enough to just burn calories while exercising.

TABE will burn calories while not exercising.

The difference is like jogging and sprinting.

With jogging burning calories is slow while sprinting calories burn up quicker.

Tapping a punching bag vs heavy hard hitting.

Cars burn more fuel if a person accelerates fast compared to driving slowly.

The story of the Turtle and Rabbit, which one burns more calories in any given day?

Moving fast with weights burns calories fast, even while resting with the help of TABE.


What is TABE? thank you
