Ways Judo Classes Can Increase Your Productivity

Judo is an old Japanese martial art, turned into modern Olympic sport and here are some of the ways Judo Classes Can Increase Your Productivity.

There are over 40 million people around the globe who practice judo.

My opinion is that judo classes can really increase your productivity. There are many things i want to talk about here, but first a bit of small talk.

Judo has been around since 1882 in all of its glory, and benefits of this great martial art are many. Physically judokas are known for having incredible athletic attributes, like strength, balance, and flexibility. And some of many mental gains of judo are reflected in enhanced self-confidence, the courage to face one’s fears, and incredible mental fortitude.


There are many ways that you can make yourself more productive but in which ways judo classes can increase your productivity? 


Physical strength, great balance and flexibility gained in judo lessons  can greatly impact your live in day-to-day basis. Great Physical advantages gained practicing judo for even as little as 2 times a week for couple of months greatly increases your mental stability and confidence.
You need to  give a presentation to colleagues, or approach your boss for any reason, or even make a phone call, anxiety likes to make it seem like the world is going to end. Anxiety disorders are commonly diagnosed mental illness in America affecting 40 million US citizens.
Anxiety often times makes you feel worthless, hence totally annihilating one’s productivity.

Now for example if those 40 million people were prescribed steady diet of judo instead of Xanax, and latest information i got Xanax is in top 10 most prescribed drugs in USA .

What would happen?


First a lot more of dojos would be needed there and tatami production would spike for a while, but what would one of those 40 million actually gain from judo?
First of all, entering dojo is like entering completely different dimension,different country, You are entering a different world all together.

So entering the dojo, can lead you to escape from everyday routine, sounds like stress relief to me.

And then you participate in different and a bit holistic “ritual” of practicing judo.
Again,  escape from everyday routine and something completely different and new. And again, stress levels plummets.

And as you are learning judo, you are exercising, a lot,it is intensive physical activity, and guess what that does to your stress levels?
You got it!

Participating in any activity that physically works out the body releases endorphins in the brain which places the person who is exercising in an idyllic state of mind. It reduces the feelings of anxiety and depression and increases confidence. Judo Itself takes a holistic approach pertaining to the mind, body, and soul. It has been shown time and time again that practicing Judo, or other martial art has led to a reduction in both anxiety and depression. Often as consequence of practicing martial arts comes enhanced self-regulation, which develops willpower and discipline. Rendering person more productive!


What do you think did i miss something, are there counter arguments to mine arguments about judo and productivity?
I would love to hear some feedback on this one.
