How can martial arts help my child?
First off, there are no bench sitters, every child participates and is judged not against others but against their own potential.
Secondly, martial arts are built on the concept of setting children up for success by giving them a series of realistic, short term goals that they can attain relatively quickly while keeping them focused on an exciting, long term goal like black belt. Each time they experience success, their confidence improves until they internalize that with hard work and dedication, they can accomplish just about anything.
And finally, by consistently participating in physical and fitness-oriented activities, they become more physically and mentally coordinated and comfortable with themselves.
Also, bullying has been a growing problem with today’s youth and martial arts training at Shepherd-Warrior Martial Arts can help children at either end of this issue. The child who is being bullied might lack confidence or self-respect – martial arts can help with both. Bullies typically lack confidence or have aggressive tendencies and martial arts helps with self-control and behavior issues.
