important reasons for kids to
Children can learn a great deal from martial arts training. Learning how to fight is one thing, but
finding out how to look after yourself is something completely different. Particularly in these times
when crime is so high, it's very crucial to learn self defense. Martial arts also offers both kids and
adults with a very effective way to exercise and maintain a healthy weight. Even though martial
arts skills can potentially be used destructively, the real purpose of it is to instill self-confidence
and other positive qualities in the practitioner.
Children who practice martial arts learn to become more focused, disciplined and self-confident,
so it's a lot more than just self defense. There are numerous examples of children whose whole
outlook on life changed for the better by practicing forms of martial arts. Life on the whole can be
easier for kids who learn martial arts, because it will take them farther in life than they would go
otherwise. One decision you and your children should make is, which martial art do they want to
study? Depending on your location, there might be Karate, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido or Kung Fu classes in
the area. Typically, they're divided into grappling/throwing type arts and punching/kicking, though
several styles include both.
After you settle on the right style, you will need the right dojos and martial arts clinics, which might
take a little researching. Good sized cities will have several schools to pick from; suburban and
rural areas, not quite as many. Quite often you will find the best styles of martial arts in tiny, rural
areas and they will have the best teachers. A small school may have one black belt instructor;
others may have assistant instructors and experienced students may teach classes too.
It's best to stay away from schools that are extremely crowded that class sizes are large, as this
will mean less individual instruction. Always check out the dojo before signing up your children in
a class, because the wrong teacher can ruin the experience for your children. The class must be
run in a manner which is respectful, safe and well organized. The overall atmosphere of the
school can tell you a lot - have a look at the quality of the equipment, the level of sanitation and
the attitude of anyone you meet. If anything about the school is questionable or disappointing, you
must leave and search for a more appropriate environment.
It always pays to browse around to find the best available. The decision must be a combination of
your own judgment and how your kids feel about the school. There are plenty of great martial arts
trainers around, so there's no reason to compromise with regards to quality. Martial arts will
benefit people in various age groups, so you should encourage your children if they have any
interest in them.
