Martial arts requires plenty of balance and flexibility, just like dancers – especially ballet varieties.
However, when it comes to dances, the balance you learn in martial arts classes is also beneficial. Many people discount the fact that martial arts requires rhythm. Training in both dance and martial arts at the same time can help you get the most out of each sport.
If you’re a dancer and haven’t tried martial arts before, the similarities may surprise you. So many skills learned in dance translate to the martial arts studio, and vice versa.
