The need for Martial Arts for children is greater than ever. Thirty years ago there was little distraction for kids, less options, it was simple growing up. Today, it is totally different; kids are subject to much more than older generations were. There is more pressure in children today and choosing an activity is something that few parents have the time to do. Martial Arts is an individual sport. It is something that will build your child’s spirit. While team sports are good to show children how to work with others, the Martial Arts teaches both teamwork and individual practice. Children move at their own pace, train for their own needs, a practice for their personal best. When they want to quit, the only people they are letting down is them. As your children grow up, they will be faced with many personal decisions. With martial arts training, they will be given the tools to make the right decision on their own. Through teaching self-discipline and character development, Martial Arts grooms your child to be a leader. We are not suggesting that your children not participate in team sports, however we are suggesting having your children participate in something that will develop their self-discipline and spirit.
Most parents think they should wait until their children get older and more focused to have them start training in the Martial Arts. Some parents think children will use techniques learned in Martial Arts in school or on their siblings. Martial Arts trains children not to use their techniques outside of the school. However, without training children will be inclined to use what they see on television. The art of self-control is a major benefit of Martial Arts training. Most people wish they would have started training when they were 3 years old, saying it would have given them so much more focus which is something some children lack in their childhood years. Some will say they were classified as “Bad” or “he doesn’t listen”. Looking back in my career, I now realize I was never taught how to listen, focus or concentrate. This is what I teach everyday in Martial Arts classes.
To most parents there is nothing more important than teaching focus to my children. The best way to teach focus is to train in the Martial Arts field; there is no sport or activity that teaches focus better. This is the main reason you should get involved in our program.
