For anyone who trains in martial arts, you know the incredible benefits of this practice. However, when the gyms closed, it proved tricky for keeping up with regular training. Most studios have reopened, but not everyone is comfortable with face-to-face classes just yet. When the whole family is feeling the effects of being unable to train in person, the next best option is to set up a home studio. Prepping a home martial arts studio may seem like an unconventional choice, but it’s actually one that promises many awesome benefits for you and your family. Here are three main tips and 11 extra resources to guide you through the process until all of you are ready to head back to Juggernaut Mixed Martial Arts.

The Steps You Need to Take

Like most projects worth doing, building your own martial arts studio at home requires no small amount of planning and due diligence.

● Before anything else, understand what it takes to remodel a garage.

● Or, convert any unused space in your home, for that matter.

● Also, get to know the specifics of setting up a martial arts home gym.

● Set a budget for the amount of work and equipment needed for your space.

The Gear and Supplies

Like all good martial arts studios, your space needs high-quality equipment, gear, and supplies to set up your training for success.

● Install the appropriate flooring to ensure safety and comfort.

● Invest in martial arts equipment that you can afford without sacrificing safety.

● Choose the best punching bag that works for the whole family.

● Stock up on essential cleaning products to keep your martial arts studio clean.

The Perks You Can Expect

Like most worthwhile pursuits, having your own martial arts studio at home comes with valuable benefits that can serve you and your family in more ways than one.

● Having your own martial arts studio at home can be a great way for kids to kill boredom.

● It also ensures your kids keep reaping the physical and mental benefits of their training.

● Fitness space home improvements can also boost the appraisal value of your property.

Your family’s favorite martial arts studio is truly the prime place to get top-notch training. But when it’s not ideal for you or your children to attend in person, you can supplement in the meantime with your own home studio. So start by doing your due diligence, weighing the pros and cons, and determining what you need to do and acquire to make it all happen. No doubt, your little ninjas will just love having this safe space to train, and so will you!
