WHAT CAN KARATE DO FOR YOUR CHILD?
Martial arts sometimes gets a bad rap. People often erroneously believe that it glorifies violence. They falsely associate it solely with Hollywood kicks and punches. While self-defense is an aspect of it, martial arts goes far beyond that. Not only does it help develop focus, self-discipline, confidence and self-esteem, it also builds a sense of respect for others and encourages non-violent conflict resolution. Karate teaches socialization skills to diffuse tense situations rather than actively engage in them.
Karate is a great way for your child to learn respect for others, to avoid being bullied, and to cope with stress and anxiety. All the while, they’ll be exercising with a group of soon-to-be friends, improving the health of their body and mind.
Our karate classes foster respect in all senses of the word.
Your child will learn not only to respect others, but to have self-respect as well.
The lessons about respect your child learns through martial arts will mold them into a better person overall.
Building confidence helps victims of bullying feel more confident about themselves. Self-confidence in itself is often a deterrent to bullying. For bullies, building confidence reduces the bully’s need to seek attention by bullying others.
Learning discipline helps victims of bullying manage their behavior to prevent provoking others. For bullies, learning discipline encourages positive behaviors while discouraging negative ones. It provides clear cut rules for acceptable behavior.
Learning about leadership helps victims of bullying make more friends, thereby reducing their chances of being bullied. For bullies, learning about leadership teaches them how to work others, recognizing how others feel in the process.
Learning karate can benefit anyone and everyone.
Yet it is particularly beneficial for children, especially those that are working through their own difficult issues.
Mastering self-control helps victims of bullying recognize what behaviors cause a conflict to become worse and then prevent these. For bullies, mastering self-control promotes emotional awareness and teaches them how to control negative feelings.
Victims of bullying experience extreme stress. If bullied at school, they’re often anxious to attend. Martial arts relieve stress, making your child feel less anxious and more at ease. For bullies, using martial arts to relieve stress helps lent out pent up energy and anger. It gives them a safe space to blow off steam. Of course, self-defense is a part of martial arts. But the process of learning these self-defense techniques is about building confidence. A victim of bullying that now knows they can protect themselves thanks to their martial arts training will appear much more confident. Much of the time, this confidence in itself prevents bullying.
