What are the benefits to training in the martial arts?
I home educated my son. One of our social activities was Karate. This was an organized physical activity that we could do together. If you want your children to become disciplined, to become stronger and more fit, and to have a positive self image take them to a martial arts class. Regular martial arts training allows children the time to practice focus and concentration. They will be challenged physically and mentally. They will gain strength and confidence during each class. Included in each class are life skills such as compassion and integrity. They will learn to work cooperatively with peers. Children will practice following instructions in a structured setting and find that exercise is FUN!
