Senior Citizens – Martial Arts Training

Our Senior Citizen Martial Arts Demonstrations, Retirement Home and Assisted Living Programs for the elderly, is different than our Martial Arts Core Curriculum offered at our school. Our Martial Arts for Senior Citizens Program is designed specifically for the elderly… is generally slower than other forms of exercise… and can be practiced without too much physical exertion. The low velocity, low impact movements can be performed by much older people experiencing conditions such as Muscle Atrophy, Joint Degeneration and Lower Stamina. Our Senior Citizen Martial Arts Demonstrations, Retirement Home and Assisted Living Programs for the elderly can consist of any or all of the following:

  • Practical Self-Defense Techniques for Senior Citizens
  • Low Impact Age-Appropriate Martial Arts Exercises for the Elderly
  • Walking Cane / Walking Stick Self-Defense Demonstrations
  • Public Safety Awareness – Strategies & Scenarios
