Designed by a martial artist for martial artists, Karate Pilates™ is a comprehensive program for martial artists to apply Pilates principles to their training. These principles will help martial artists improve flexibility, increase core strength, reduce the chances of injury, and increase their longevity as active martial artists.
The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Pilates during World War I for veterans' rehabilitation programs. The "Pilates Principles" are proper alignment, centering, control, precision, breathing & flowing motion, strength, and flexibility. For over 70 years, these principles and exercises have been used by soldiers, professional athletes and dancers to improve their workout routines and performance.
