Benefits of Karate
INCREASED ATTENTION SPAN AND FOCUS
INCREASED FITNESS AND WEIGHT LOSS
We specialize in kids’ Karate programs and parents love the benefits of having their children practice Karate. Martial Arts is not a team sport, the only person that a child is competing with is “Themselves”.
Kids come to us from ages 3 and up, some are in shape, while others are overweight. Some come for confidence, fitness and others for fun. Each child is treated equally, and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A child is never compared to anyone else.
At Premier Martial Arts our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate your kid to be the best that they can be.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I know my child will have fun, but they have quit other activities before. How can we keep them from quitting?
As long as a parent makes and keeps the commitment of making sure their child attends class twice per week, children will learn and excel in their training. Kids that train consistently will progress in martial arts and should have no problem reaching the life-changing goal of black belt.
Is martial art training good exercise if my child needs to lose weight?
Martial arts is great exercise for kids. Martial arts training, combined with a sensible diet, can transform a child’s physical and overall health. Kids that feel good about themselves are children that develop strong confidence and self esteem — which they can carry over in all aspects of life in the future.
What are the chances that my child could get hurt doing martial arts?
Your child’s safety is our main concern. We use padded safety gear, abide by strict safety rules and regulation for instructors and students, use padded safety weapons and even have high-tech padded floors — all for the safety of our students.
Will martial arts training make my child aggressive to others?
No way! As a matter of fact, we are careful to teach our students to use common sense before self defense. Kids are taught to make smart decisions when it comes to self defense from the first day of class. They will know when it is the right time to use what they have been taught.
My child has never been good at sports; can they do this?
Every child has what it takes to be good at martial arts, because in martial arts they are not competing or comparing themselves with anyone. Martial arts are more than just punching and kicking. Character development training is just as important as punching and kicking. Once we develop a child’s confidence, they can achieve anything they set their mind to.
Is my child too young for martial arts training?
