Our Martial Arts Classes Develop:
From the very first class, your child will learn the importance of eye contact, posture, and active listening skills that will benefit them not only in Karate but at home, on the playing field, and of course at school.
Both teachers and parents often notice the dramatic difference in children who study the Martial Arts. Your child will be more focused at school and with homework.
When kids become more focused at school they gain the courage to raise their hands and ask more questions (so they learn more). They become more respectful towards their parents and others.
When confronted, a child’s first option should be to get away; fighting should be the very last resort.
It is a myth that the Martial Arts fosters aggressiveness in children. On the contrary, with continuous training, there are natural increases in a child’s confidence, discipline and self-control.
The Martial Arts instills discipline in students by requiring full attention in class, refraining from unruly behavior, the importance of arriving on time and being prepared.
Students are also taught to follow instructions and not interrupt instructors. Kids are expected to keep uniforms and other items clean and organized.
Many parents enroll their children in the Martial Arts to boost their confidence, self-esteem and feeling of self-worth.
Kids put forth their best effort, defend themselves, recognize their own potential and believe in their abilities. Because of their own efforts, there is a feeling of pride with each rank advancement.
Nothing does a better job at teaching the “old school” values of respect and courtesy. Martial Arts training teaches children to answer in a respectful manner to instructors (“Yes Sir” or “No Sir”), bow when entering and leaving the dojo, tag hands before sparring, stand straight before class begins and raising hands to answer or ask a question.
At a very early age, Martial Art students are encouraged to set long term goals. The most obvious goal is reaching the rank of Black Belt.
The Martial Art instills indomitable spirit so children never give up on their dreams. Learning to set goals encompasses the life experiences of a Martial Arts student.
“Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.” (CDC, 7/2013). “Two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese.” (Flegalet al., 2012). We hear about it all the time.
Did you know that in many cases, the bad lifestyle habits that lead to obesity start in childhood and can get worse over time? Fortunately, the Martial Arts help families avoid falling into these statistics by teaching healthy lifestyles and fitness early on.
The Martial Arts improve flexibility, endurance, balance, agility, strength and motor skills.
