Teaches The Importance Of Hard Work
We always tell children how important working hard for what they want is, but they don’t have the life experience needed to understand how important putting in effort is. Martial arts reinforces the importance of hard work in a positive way.
No one becomes an expert in martial arts overnight but the process can be rewarding! At first a child may struggling when learning new techniques but in time they master each one and learn to execute them with ease.
Children begin to understand that martial arts techniques are no different from other parts of life, Learning that consistent practice of the technique led them mastering it. Realising they can master anything else, such as school work.
As a child develops through their martial arts journey, their instructors will reward them with coloured belts (gradings). This serves as a clear sign that their hard work is paying off.
One of the main parts of martial arts is discipline. Our Instructors create a positive environment where all of our students feel comfortable. Students are expected to sit quietly and listen to their instructors as techniques are explained step by step.
A disciplined attitude to training allows students to pay attention to the little details of each technique. These little details are what make up the perfect execution of the technique.
Our students are rewarded by moving through the grades. The more consistently they train, the faster their skills develop. This will carry over to the child’s academics.
Learning martial arts helps to build emotional strength. Training requires our students to deal with many challenges and failures as they learn techniques taught by the instructors. Sometimes, students might even feel like they will never be able to deliver specific techniques with ease, but our instructors will provide plenty of encouragement until the students overcome any obstacle in their way.
Due to this, our students become less likely to give up in frustration when they run into difficult subjects or assignments at school.
Concentration and Focus
Martial arts require students to sit still and remain quiet whilst the instructor teaches techniques step by step, the same way a teacher requires students to be quiet in school. The main difference is that martial are generally a lot more enjoyable than school lessons, so it’s easier for the child to stay focused throughout.
