Parents say that martial arts helps their kids develop a “Can-Do” confident attitude. How?
Take a look at our 5 ways martial arts helps boost children’s confidence:
1. Start With The End In Mind
Step #1 at Life Skill Martial Arts is how to set and achieve goals. All new students learn that setting a goal, no matter how big or small, and working toward it day after day will eventually lead them to accomplish it.
2. Failure Is Our Friend
Next Life Skill Kids learn that even if they fall short of their goal, it’s not the end of the world. Instead, they will take this failure as an opportunity to try harder next time and make their dreams become reality. So, through martial arts practice, kids learn how to deal with failure and keep going.
3. Confident Communication
Life Skill Martial Arts classes develop social skills by increasing interaction among students. Classes can be taught in both large, medium or small groups. When learning new techniques, students have the chance to practice using them in partner drills or other creative ways that allow them to interact with classmates. This provides students with the opportunity to work on their social skills as they interact with both instructors and classmates, which in turn helps them learn how to deal with stressful situations in a positive way.
4. Lead By Example
Martial arts is beneficial in many ways, but one of the most important benefits for children are leadership skills. Kids learn how to be leaders, for instance, when they take turns leading each other in simple warm-ups. This allows them more control, which helps boost their social standing with other kids around him/her.
5. Success AT School!
Did you know that research shows that students who participate in martial arts tend to have higher grades and better attendance rates than those who don’t? In a world where most children are increasingly spending more time playing video games instead of doing their homework, it is important that they develop the discipline to focus on schoolwork without becoming distracted by something else entirely!
6. EQ + IQ + PHYS ED = 1 SUPER KID!
Martial Arts training always includes the emotional intelligence skills that are a product of practicing Self Control, Patience, Perseverance, and Respect. So while it’s important to build your child’s confidence, it’s also crucial to assist them in becoming a more emotionally intelligent person.
Physical fitness also boosts our confidence. It actually shapes how we feel! As Life Skill Kids strengthen their focus, and learn solid Bully Defense techniques, they also improve physical strength as they become a Martial Art Athlete!
Being a martial arts athlete is about building the habit to compete at being the best version of ourselves. It’s being physically fit to attack life with the same passion and energy of the greats, like Michael Jordan, Muhammad Ali, and of course Bruce Lee! The goal is to be agile and coordinated to zig and zag through the obstacles life throws at us. We want the to build speed needed to go after my goals, and the endurance of an ultra marathon runner to persist until we win!
With the correct coach, your child will develop Physically, Mentally AND Emotionally. They often pick up the Life Skills that stay with them throughout their lives and help improve their overall quality of life, quicker and easier than adults!
