Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?
Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun
Young children are curious and active, they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behaviour. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that is supportive, educational, and fun.
PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN IS A REAL CHALLENGE
You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life. Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful. The ideal setting is one that has got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they are learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.
STUDYING MARTIAL ARTS BUILDS PHYSICAL COORDINATION AND CONTROL
Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability. They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.
YOUNG MARTIAL ARTS STUDENTS LEARN HOW TO FOCUS
Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily achievable tasks. The focus they learn in the dojang is something they will take home – and into the classroom. That is why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students also.
MARTIAL ARTS HELPS KIDS LEARN TO DEAL WITH FRUSTRATION
Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence. The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.
KIDS WHO STUDY MARTIAL ARTS LEARN GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP
Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are. Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another
