Your mind matters!

Sensei doing a flying kick at the camera

London is one of the most exciting cities in the world but even the most ardent blackbelt student can, at times, find it a very demanding and overwhelming place to be. Without a way to manage these stresses, you can easily find yourself suffering from symptoms related to anxiety and depression. Studies have shown that regular exercise can have a very positive impact on your mental health.

At Xen-Do we take a holistic approach to getting you fit and healthy. Our motto is ‘fit for life’ and we believe that it is just as important to keep the muscle between your ears healthy as it is your biceps and abs. Any Xen-do student will tell you that there isn’t anything quite like kicking and punching away the stresses of the day. Our Senseis ensure that each class has the right combination of cardio and technique to get your heart pumping and your brain working to give you that injection of endorphins.

There is a strong link between physical activity and positive mental health for people of all ages. It is believed that exercise alters brain chemistry which can lead to a positive mental attitude. You can read more about this here.

Here at Xen-do, we have created a community of people united by a passion for martial arts and getting fit. As well as the obvious benefits for your health and fitness, you can guarantee that you will meet new people and have a great time in an environment where leaving your ego at the door is mandatory and no one takes themselves too seriously.
