Jiu Jitsu is experiencing a rapid growth in popularity worldwide. Like wrestling, it is excellent for self- defence for boys and girls. Extra fun and adventure can be enjoyed by entering tournaments. Club Physical’s Kids Jiu Jitsu is under the banner of the Tu Kaha group. It’s ideal for kids 6-14 and the head instructor is Clinton Davies.

+What is a MET?

Typical Class Structure

A typical class begins with a warm-up, followed by focus on technique, partner drills and short Jiu Jitsu bouts. The junior classes include some fun, game type activities and drills.

What You Should Bring To Class

For you first visit, clean shorts and a t-shirt is acceptable. Ultimately you will need a Gi (Jiu Jitsu uniform) which you will be able to purchase from your Sensei (Instructor). Have clean feet and your nails clipped.

Bring a towel and a drink bottle.

Low-Intensity Classes

Low-intensity classes feature steady activity. They usually don’t have bursts of intense activity and aim to maintain the same heart rate throughout the class. Low-intensity classes usually have less effect on joints and bones. They’re a good choice for people with health problems that need to take it easy. Low-impact aerobics burns an average of 352 calories per hour, while a dancing class can burn up to 422 calories.

High-Intensity Classes

High-impact aerobics can burn up to 500 calories an hour. And indoor cycling can burn up to 500 calories in 45 minutes. In high-intensity classes, the amount of calories can vary greatly depending on how much effort you put into the workout. For example, you can burn anywhere from 211 and 739 calories an hour using a stationary bike, depending on the intensity of the workout. Kickboxing is another high burner, with 350 to 450 calories burned during a standard 55-minute class.

The Metabolic Equivalent of Task (MET), or simply metabolic equivalent, is a physiological measure expressing the energy cost of physical activities and is defined as the ratio of metabolic rate (and therefore the rate of energy consumption) during a specific physical activity to a reference metabolic rate, set by convention to 3.5 ml O2·kg−1·min−1or equivalently:

1 MET is also defined as 58.2 W/m2 (18.4 Btu/h·ft2), which is equal to the rate of energy produced per unit surface area of an average person seated at rest. The surface area of an average person is 1.8 m2 (19 ft2). Metabolic rate is usually expressed in terms of unit area of the total body surface (ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 55[1]).

Originally, 1 MET was considered as the Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) obtained during quiet sitting.[2][3] MET values of activities range from 0.9 (sleeping) to 23 (running at 22.5 km/h or a 4:17 mile pace).
