All children require structure, routine and discipline to lead a happy, balanced life and when all of these things are present, they thrive. These are all elements that exist in martial arts, which represent an effective therapy for children affected by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and according to NHS statistics http://bit.ly/2qAHzUy, as many as 5% of all children are now diagnosed with the condition.

How Do Martial Arts Help?

Apart from the obvious physical benefits that exercise provides, including strength, cardio health, and stamina, martial arts are known to diminish the symptoms of ADHD. Impulsiveness and hyperactivity (the most notable ADHD characteristics) are significantly reduced when children are given martial arts training.

Increased Self Esteem

The personal discipline and routine that are established by training in martial arts have a virtuous effect on a child’s sense of achievement. As well as the proud moment when they are awarded the next color belt up, self-esteem can be hugely boosted by the increased standing they have amongst their peers and the general sense of self-confidence that martial arts training provides.

Whilst a child who experiences difficulties at school with ADHD can become very frustrated with their lack of academic progress, martial arts offers away from them to achieve something meaningful away from the rigid classroom setting.

Improved Focus

At Tring Martial Arts Academy, we understand that martial arts exercise not only the body but also helps the mind to concentrate, which can be of particular benefit to children with ADHD. Once your child understands that correlation between mind and body, they are better able to cope with situations that they would otherwise struggle in – such as in school.

Respect

Allowing your child to benefit from the positive environment of a dojo, will also teach them the meaning of respect to all. In modern culture, children aren’t really taught to respect adults or authority figures anymore, which is an issue that martial arts can most certainly address.

If you would like to find out more how martial arts training can help teach focus, discipline, and respect and help the social development of children with ADHD, please give us a call on  01442 795001 for an informal chat about how we can help or visit our website at www.tringmartialarts.com
