Kids absolutely loved it. They went in with their cousins with a free visit and now they want to sign up. I love their enthusiasm. You can never be too young to learn how to defend yourself.

Martial Arts: The Effective After School Program

A parent’s work schedule rarely syncs up perfectly with his/her child’s school schedule. As school concludes for the day, parents seek the best options and programs for their children to attend until they are out of work. Additionally, many parents aspire to place their children into programs that are going to benefit their children’s growth rather than an alternative program which is designed to just pass the time until parents conclude the work day. If you are a parent who is looking for an effective, all-around activity that not only stimulates physical activity needs, but mental activity needs, then you should consider placing your children in a martial arts after school program. By doing so, you will begin to see great growth and benefits in your children.

Here are some of the benefits of placing your child into one of our martial arts programs:

1. Provides Great Education, Discipline, and Responsibility

Martial arts teaches kids how to be disciplined and responsible. The routines associated with martial arts require precision and practice in order to perfect the stances and activities. Students are also required to upkeep their uniforms and belts. They are taught to respect the instructor as well as one another. This type of conditioning in the class allows students to become more mature and responsible. Building this foundation at a young age will produce healthy habits as they grow into teenagers and soon after, adults.

2. Opportunities for Friendships

For children and adults it can be challenging stepping outside of our comfort zones and making new friends. Children can be exposed to negative experiences and harsh behaviors in the school setting and within this new online world which may lead to feelings of social isolation and increased anxiety in social situations. One of the greatest benefits of martial arts is that he/she will get the chance to easily make friends in the program. The other children in the class already share a common interest with one another: martial arts. They all understand the routines and the disciplines behind the activity. Sharing the same mindset allows children within the class to become friends easier and support one another. There are also routines that involve students working with a partner which is a great way to foster teamwork and accountability.

3. Increases Physical Strength and Fitness

Martial arts after school programs offer a great way for children to practice physical fitness every single day. Each session begins with a warm-up routine which helps students center their thoughts and stretch to prevent injuries. The remaining routine focuses on increasing muscular strength and promoting great posture.

4. Increased Self-Confidence

By participating in martial arts, students additionally receive mental benefits as self-confidence will grow as a result of the benefits listed above. They also learn great methods of self-defense, which is ideal for any person of any age.

 

Finding an after school program that provides a multitude of benefits for a child can be difficult. Martial arts classes are proven to be a great option to benefit physical, mental, and emotional needs of children.
