There are many profound philosophical reasons why you should enroll your children in Martial Arts. Here are 5 of the best reasons.

#1 Martial Arts Shows Kids How To Handle Bullies.
Martial Arts will be a great way to boost your child’s self-esteem, knowing that they can handle bullies even if they are much bigger. Once your child knows that they have the skills to defend themselves and others, they will develop confidence, and this alone is a big deterrent to bullies.

#2 Martial Arts teach Kids To Learn From Failures.
Unlike other forms of training, your child will practice their skills against a resisting opponent. When your child first begins their training, they will experience failure. But that is alright – even the most senior Martial Arts practitioners and black belts have struggled and faced failures early in their respective journeys. However, through the encouragement and guidance from our instructors, your child can learn from their mistakes and focus on improving.

#3 Martial Arts Help Kids Socialize.
Martial Arts is a good recreational activity that helps your child socialize with kids whom they might not otherwise get to meet. The diversity in a BJJ or Kickboxing class is an ideal environment for your child to learn about other ethnicities, cultures, and languages. When your child trains with other kids, they will develop trust and build stronger bonds with teammates.

#4 Martial Arts Improves Kids’ Coordination And Motor Skills.
Martial Arts typically involve the use of many sequences to execute techniques. When training in “the gentle art,” your child will learn to develop fine motor skills, spatial awareness, and coordination. The forced repetitions of these techniques during training will help your child commit those movements to muscle memory. As a result, they will develop greater control over their bodies and learn to be more precise in their actions. Kids who understand how their limbs move in relation to the techniques end up developing better coordination and improved flexibility.

#5 Martial Arts Helps Kids Build Healthy Lifestyle Habits.
BJJ and Kickboxing emphasizes the importance of physical activity and can instil positive habits in your child from an early age. At the Base, your child will be engaged in a physically and intellectually stimulating activity. This will help to prevent them from lapsing into the sedentary lifestyles associated with watching too much television, or reliance on their phones/ipads/etc for stimulation. Your child will grow to appreciate the benefits of coordination, flexibility, agility, and endurance as necessary elements to succeed on the mat and in life.
