Five reasons why your child should practice martial arts
They (and You) Will Get More Active. The martial arts offer many benefits, but when it comes to fitness, becoming a true martial artist means becoming a supremely fit person. Martial arts can help your child get fit and healthy.
They’ll Learn to Find Focus and Stillness. At some juncture in life, every one of us comes to learn that the greatest obstacle we face in this lifetime is ourselves. I remember many challenges, breakthroughs, and setbacks. What I do not remember are distractions or gimmicks. Your child will learn what it is to be still, challenged, and focused.
They’ll Gain Self Confidence and Self Respect. Your child will learn that confidence and respect for others comes from a deep sense of self-knowledge. Part of life is learning that we all take hits. The key is in learning how best to take that hit and get back up.
They’ll Connect Their Mind and Body. A martial artist is taught to see, feel, and listen - both internally and externally. Tapping into intuition, fear, and courage are examples of being able to put the physical together with the mental.
They’ll Learn Conflict Resolution. People often ask me whether I have ever used my martial arts training in a fight. Indeed I have used the skill sets learned from martial arts many times to resolve conflict. Words were never grounds for a fight. You will learn to respond without reacting out of ego or fear.
