Less Stress When a Child Knows Self Defense Techniques
One of the most effective self-confidence boosters for a child is when s/he knows how to defend him- or herself. We hope that our children never have to use that knowledge, but today’s world has no guarantees.
There are bullies and kid-brawls and even more sinister reasons that your child should know defense techniques. Knowing how to keep themselves safe can provide a big burst of self-confidence that can get them through tough situations.
Simply knowing these defense techniques lessens some of the stress that most kids feel at one time or another when going through school and social activities. They face enough challenges through life without having to deal with the stress that comes from bullying and other fears.
Statistics show that kids who practice martial arts make good grades in school and are more apt to try new things. They are more disciplined and willing to try new things that will make them stronger and smarter.
The gift of confidence can motivate your child to excel in all areas of life. It’s a motivational learning experience that promotes respect and perseverance as well as kindness toward others.
Stress is one of the major problems that affect children as they enter and progress during school years. If that stress isn’t reduced and transformed into confidence to meet all of life’s challenges, a child could easily become overwhelmed.
Most kids have a vast amount of energy that they just don’t know what to do with. Unless it’s channeled into productive actions, it could go in a direction you might regret. Their time and energy are better utilized if they are engaged in activities that promote overall health and fitness.
Attention span of kids who practice martial arts is also greatly improved – and as an added bonus, hand-eye coordination improves as do motor skills. Our instructors also ingrain in children a higher level of respect and obedience toward their elders.
Martial arts classes here at Martial Arts Gilbert are engaging and develop leadership qualities in your children that will serve him/her well throughout the years. Instructors take the necessary time to get to know your child on an individual basis, letting them know they are important and deserve the best.
Defense skills aren’t the only reasons to involve your child in our martial arts program. Confidence in him/herself and knowledge that s/he is loved and cherished is an incalculable gift that can change their lives.
What would you give to help your child reduce the stress in her/his life and manage the formative school years with grace and confidence? It’s an immeasurable gift that you can give your child that will make a real difference in their life.
