HOW THE MARTIAL ARTS WILL HELP YOUR CHILD
1) Martial Arts Training Builds Confidence:
By learning how to protect themselves, your children will develop confidence in their ability to handle life’s challenges. In turn, their improved confidence will give them the courage to say “no” to negative influences.
2) Martial Arts Training Increases Focus:
We will help your child improve their focus by giving them clear goals and showing them how to reach those goals through hard work and consistency. (Of course, they won’t realize they’re learning focus because our classes are so much fun! But keep that to yourself – it’ll be our little secret!)
3) Martial Arts Training Develops Self-Control:
Kids learn self-control in the martial arts by learning how important it is to have respect, both for themselves and for others. Martial arts training teaches that in order to get respect, you first have to give it. Once your child learns this important lesson, their self-control will naturally increase.
4) Martial Arts Training Instills Discipline:
Discipline is “doing what you must do, when you have to do it, whether you feel like it or not.” Discipline is desperately needed in all areas of life at all ages, from grade school student to adult. The demanding exercises of martial arts training will give your child a vehicle to develop this crucial life skill.
5) Martial Arts Training Cultivates Courage:
Life can be difficult, and is quite a struggle at times. The person who is used to overcoming obstacles and has acquired the habit of facing challenges is the one who is more likely to succeed. This is why it is so important to develop that habit of courage early on, so that later in life a person will more easily face those difficulties with a positive outlook and a self-assurance that they can indeed be overcome. Our martial arts kids program provides young children with an excellent opportunity to safely learn how to face those fears and blast right through them.
Hear what Amanda has to say:
Kids need strong role models who set a positive example for them to follow.
“Since starting my training for Black Belt, my grades have risen quite a bit. My academic average was an 87 before I started, now it’s a 94. I think that it has rose due to the weekly wisdoms, and the mind-set that the training helped me develop. I also think training has helped me focus more, which helped me in many ways, including school.
I have also improved at my goal setting skills. Before training, I was one of those people who would set a goal, and then do nothing about it. I was a person who would expect it to happen, without effort. Now, I know that I need to work hard to achieve that goal, and that you get the best results when you put your best effort into it, and when you try your best.” – Ben
Kids need strong role models who set a positive example for them to follow. Yet, many parents find that kids can’t look up to professional athletes anymore. So where can they turn for positive examples to follow? Our answer to this question is our professional staff of caring instructors. We honestly believe our martial art instructors are some of the best role models your child could have.
Experience has shown us that kids respond to our martial art teachers in a way that no other coach or instructor can match.
We realize how much our students look up to us and we work hard to set a positive example for them by living the martial arts principles of honesty, integrity, courage, kindness, and self-control. As you know, children are hard-wired to seek attention and approval. So, when kids see positive behaviors demonstrated by our instructors, they are strongly driven to display those same behaviors in their own actions.
It doesn’t stop there. Our martial arts classes come with a “built-in” reward system that will encourage your child to act as they should.
This “built-in” reward system is our belt-rank progression program. Children in our programs know they are expected to behave at home and at school in order to progress to their next belt rank.
This “one-two punch” of providing inspiring role models and giving your child positive feedback works amazingly well to help children improve their behavior. We know of no other extracurricular activity that provides kids with such incredible incentives for displaying good behavior.
Just visit our school and ask some of the parents who have had their children enrolled in our programs. When you do, you’ll hear story after story of how our programs have helped their children improve their behavior and achieve greater success. Parents share these stories with us all the time, and frankly we’re quite proud to have had a small part in improving each child’s life.
We Teach Your Child the Value of Self Confidence.
Our curriculum is designed to help your child become more outgoing, make friends easier, and try harder without quitting. In our program, your child will be less prone to be bullied and will enjoy school more. So if you would like to have a more confident, self-assured child, call our school today!
Proof That Martial Arts Training Helps Build Happier Kids.
We don’t just want you to take our word for it. There is actually plenty of solid research that proves that martial arts training promotes better behavior and improved attitudes in school age children.
Here are just a few of the published studies and articles describing the benefits of martial arts training for children:
A 2001 study published in the Psychology journal Adolescence showed a vast improvement in good behavior and a noticeable reduction in violent behavior among children who took martial arts classes for just 90 minutes a week
Another article published in Adolescence in 1998 described how martial arts programs decrease violent behavior in children and teens.
A recent study published in the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology showed that children who participated in martial arts training had better behavior and higher scores on a mental math test.
The Magazine for Physical Therapy praised martial arts training as a helpful activity for special needs children.
An article in the December 2002 issue of The International Journal of Contemporary Family Therapy recommended families take martial arts classes because of the many positive effects martial arts training provides to family members.
As you can see, the evidence is conclusive. Martial arts training works! There is no other activity that has been proven to bring such a great improvement in the well-being of children. Now, just imagine what a difference our martial arts program will make in your own child’s life.
