Below we have listed just some of the reasons all children should learn Martial Arts.
- Improved School Reports:
In approved Martial Art schools the curriculum is designed to teach children the importance of concentration. Improved concentration means that your child will learn more at school. Therefore, you can expect your child to receive better grades for both academics and attitude.
- Karate Builds Healthy Kids: Karate is a great work-out. Your child will breath better, eat better and sleep better. Children who take Karate are slimmer, make better decisions about food, and in general, learn to take care of themselves. You won’t see any of our Black Belt Students smoking or using drugs, now or ever!
- Positive Attitude: Kids in a progressive Martial Arts program learn to have a positive attitude. You won’t find yourself repeating yourself over and over, or arguing with your child like most parents do. Kids learn to be respectful of their parents and teachers. You might even catch your child saying: Yes Mum or Thanks Mum!
- Self Confidence: It’s true, kids who take Karate develop better self-confidence. They’re encouraged to take chances, to push themselves further than they thought possible. The success they experience through Karate teaches them that they can be successful at anything if they truly believe they can and are willing to work hard. Improved confidence leads to better grades, a better circle of friends, better performance in sports and extracurricular activities in general.
- Self-Defense: Karate teaches two forms of self-defense. One is physical, your child will improve his or her strength, flexibility and overall health. Additionally, your child will learn to strike back with tremendous power and effectiveness. Hopefully your child will never be picked on or need to fight...But shouldn’t everyone know how to protect themselves should the occasion arise? The second form of self-defense Karate teaches is internal. Children learn to spot danger and avoid dangerous people, places and activities. Karate can help your child avoid the need for a physical confrontation. This second form of self-defense is perhaps the most valuable of the two.
