Here are a few of the many benefits of getting your kids involved in Martial Arts and Fitness classes at Razors Edge MMA…
Fitness is a crucial element to all martial arts classes, especially where children are involved. Warmups with jumping jacks, pushups, sit-ups and stretches are common, and the movements of the martial art itself often challenge your muscles and cardiovascular system. Martial artists are known for being toned, flexible and physically fit, and your child will be no different.
The ability to defend yourself against an assailant or bully is an empowering feeling. Most martial arts use self defense as a cornerstone of the entire program. The precise methods will vary from discipline to discipline, but you can be certain that with regular practice, your child will learn to defend him or herself in a variety of different ways. Many martial arts schools also teach street-smart techniques to kids to help avoid problems altogether.
Martial arts help instill mental focus in your child, giving him or her the ability to concentrate on a task and see it through to its conclusion. The discipline that is taught in regard to uniforms, customs and techniques often translates into other areas of life, including school and household chores.
Martial arts are all about respect. Punching, kicking, throwing and locking are all secondary to the respect that is shown form the moment you walk into a dojo or school. Children learn to bow to the instructors who came before them, and to their current mentors. They also learn to treat other students as they wish to be treated. Quality martial arts instructors press upon the respect issue regularly and instruct students to practice respect for self, parents, teachers and peers at every opportunity.
A child who is involved in martial arts is generally a child who is confident in him or herself. Working through a martial art and the belt ranking system gives a child measurable goals to follow that are realistic to attain. The sense of accomplishment and confidence a child feels by mastering a new technique or graduating to a new belt will follow them everywhere they go.
