Martial arts for children is essential. Why? Because it teaches them the following things.
It teaches them to be self-aware of real-life threats such as abduction, child molesters, and it also builds confidence and teaches the child how to protect themselves from bullies. It also causes the child to lose weight, helps keep them healthy and builds solid, strong, healthy joints, and muscle tissue.
Parents instinctively know that the safety of their children is under constant threat. More kids than ever before are abducted and victimized by predators each day. Plus, playground bullies, older children, and others prey upon the young, thinking them defenseless. By enrolling your child into martial arts classes, you can equip them with the skills to ward off an attack or evade it altogether.
Most people have the misconception that enrolling your children in martial arts will promote violence. A martial art school doesn’t really typically encourage kids to fight in school or get involved in violent activity. In fact, a lot of kids are motivated to learn how to defend themselves, and revenge is not one of the primary principles of any martial art style.
Houston children’s martial arts classes are a wonderful choice. These are an excellent way to help children learn discipline, self-control, self-esteem, respect, and mental consciousness. Moreover, the self-defense techniques and development of inner strength and physical endurance are resulting in character development.
By employing imagination you can devise martial arts kids games from drills, which are fun and engaging for children. This ensures a furtive learning environment in your kids’ classes, which will keep them motivated to stick with the martial arts program. Again these are basic tips and advice for your children.
I would not want to see any child get hurt. Unfortunately, the amount of children I’ve dealt with between the ages of 8 to 13 who have had some severe bullying and beatings is ridiculous. There was one girl at 13 who had been sexually assaulted, something she will NEVER recover from and despite coming to us, we managed to build up her confidence and get her back to the young she once was.
Despite all of this, I DID however feel if she had come to us first we could have helped her further in this situation, IE full on preventing it. There was another incident where a boy at 11 was held down while boiling hot water was poured over him, because he could not stop his 2 attackers who were the same age, again a situation where I believe any parent would want their child to be able to fight out of and get away from.
Likewise, look at the number of child abductions going on, a good school will teach your child how to notice certain things and pick up on them without putting any fear in your child. We make them aware and teach them the rules of safety and common sense.
