Practicing martial arts as a family is one of the most powerful family building activities available today. Martial arts can be practiced as a family for years and years. With a discipline like the martial arts, there’s no need to worry about the activity ending and the need to replace it — martial arts are a lifelong sport.
Children are highly affected by the unpredictable and unusual situation caused by the coronavirus. Stability, structure, and routine are vital in creating a healthy and happy child — this is just one of the many reasons that martial arts are so beneficial to children. Yet, during this coronavirus pandemic, stability, structure, and routine are exactly what has disappeared from most of our lives and our children’s lives as well.
The coronavirus continues to expand and disrupt the lives and normal routines of almost every person. As lockdowns begin to occur and our once busy lives begin to slow down or completely stop, it’s important to ensure that all members of our families are doing well...
When explaining as complex and upsetting of a situation as the coronavirus has created to your children, it’s important to give them information in a format they will be able to make sense of. Instead of speaking about a zoonotic disease, talk to them about simply feeling bad or sick.
The belt system used in karate gives children goals they can aspire to and obtain. As a child moves forward in their karate training and succeeds at achieving each new belt, they are building their confidence significantly by very literally watching their abilities come to fruition, thereby teaching them to believe in those abilities. Recalling our definition of confidence from earlier, the way karate gives children a means to improve and test their abilities is exactly what building confidence is all about.
One of the most valuable qualities that martial arts help develops in a child’s character is also one of the most crucial qualities for success in life: patience. In our instant-gratification world where children are used to high-speed internet and fast food, enrolling your child in a martial arts program confronts them with a practice that has no option for shortcuts and fast-forwards. Practicing martial arts can extend throughout an entire lifetime; there is no quick fix to learning the next technique. Mastery of a move will require patience to practice again and again until the correct form begins to take hold.
Students of Krav Maga are trained for real-world self-defense situations from the start; training always begins with an emphasis on avoiding confrontation and escaping danger, qualities that make it a uniquely well-adapted fighting style for self-defense. Students are instructed in situational awareness, teaching them how to avoid danger through recognizing threats and turning their surroundings into weapons for self-defense.
The top reason that kickboxing is steadily taking over comes down to how effective it is for major weight loss. Kickboxing might seem like an athletic sport and in many ways it certainly is, but learning techniques and choreography tricks people into feeling like they haven’t just done the equivalent of one hour of intense cardio. Make no mistake, kickboxing is a cardio-heavy workout—it’s this aspect of the sport that makes it such an incredible work out for losing weight or staying trim.
