KARATE FOR KIDS
How Kids Benefit
With our Kids Karate Course, students have the chance to exercise their mind in ways they never have before. Our Junior program teaches students not only the values of the martial arts but also the values of life. From improved focus, goal setting, to self discipline and self respect, kids emerge from this program changed for the better. And their parents couldn't be happier.
Martial Arts training for kids provides many benefits beyond that offered by other sports. A student that once kept to themselves begins to blossom when they learn karate. The structured classes and drills that involve punching, kicking, and yelling helps the student overcome shyness and timidity and help build confidence. Often parents report an increase their child's social interaction with others.
The extroverted child has a safe, healthy outlet in which to compete with himself and others. They learn enough self-confidence that they need not to respond to teasing or provocation from peers.
Karate training is a gross motor activity that helps children develop a sense of integrity about their bodies. Balance, coordination, posture and general movements improve with karate training. The preadolescent often finds that karate training helps them cope with clumsiness that often accompanies the spurt of growth at this age.
Karate also offers an additional bonus that other sports do not provide. Karate teaches self-defense. In the unsettling times in which we live, a knowledge of how to protect themselves can be crucial. Parents often report feeling more secure knowing their sons or daughters are capable of defending themselves.
You will be pleasantly surprised with the results. And who knows, you may want to try a class yourself!
