The Benefits of Martial Art Fitness for Children Aged 4 Years and Over

Martial arts training is a fantastic way to provide the benefits of organised exercised to your children and it can be suitable for kids as young as 4. Not only that, but regular classes will teach your child focus, self-control, respect and determination and that’s not all!

Focus

The techniques practiced during a martial arts class help with coordination, concentration, and focus. The increased concentration that is encouraged during this time can transfer to other parts of their lives, such as at school and at home, where improved focus can significantly and positively affect behaviour.

Self-Control

It could be that your child doesn’t do so well with team sports, which can seem highly pressured or that they aren’t too interested in exercise in general, due to an obsession with a games console, but martial arts training offers all the benefits of other types of exercise, without the added pressure to ‘perform’. It also teaches self-control, which is a very useful skill to possess, at any time of life.

Respect

Some children have difficulty understanding the need to respect their parents and authority figures, which can cause significant problems for them at home and at school. When your child sets foot into a martial arts class, they enter a world where respecting others is the key to everything.

The need to respect your instructor, fellow students and opponents is reinforced constantly during their time there and the benefits of this can be felt in your child’s behaviour away from the class in the way they interact with others. The methods used can also help with self-awareness which allows a child to regulate their own behaviour.

Confidence

Confidence is very often gained by attaining ‘goals’, which could be derived from getting to that next belt rank or by getting a move right for the first time and it can have an extremely virtuous effect on even a young child.  The friendships they make by attending a regular martial arts class adds another welcome boost to their self-worth.

Martial arts are not just a type of exercise, but a way of living and if you would like to find out more about how your child could access the many benefits it offers, why not give us a call on 01442 795001 or visit our website www.tringmartialarts.com for more information.
