Why All Kids Should Take Kids Martial Arts Classes

Now more than ever, parents see amazing results with kids martial arts classes, helping them achieve better grades and become more confident people. That’s because martial arts for kids is about way more than just punches and kicks. It’s about transforming kids into the best versions of themselves they can possibly be! Read on to find out more about this amazing sport and after-school activity.

Discipline and Success in Kids Martial Arts Classes

Okay, let’s start off with a really important question… What does “success” mean to you? Some define it through wealth or material goods. Some define it through the number of lives they impact. No matter how you slice it, most successful people, like world-famous athletes, celebrities and business leaders, chalk their success up to one key thing- never giving up.

We often forget that every successful person we see was once a child themselves, and that they turned their talents into lasting success mostly through perseverance. It’s not a coincidence that we teach perseverance and discipline in every single martial arts class. These skills are the foundation of leadership.

Being able to persevere through the tough times and possess the self-discipline to do what is right, even when it’s hard, is what makes a good person great. These skills make people kind, compassionate, respectful to others, and they create better community members and industry leaders. Can you see why it’s so important to establish discipline and perseverance early on? Especially if you want your child to become their most successful versions of themselves, however they define it- you have to lay that foundation ASAP.

Self-discipline and perseverance are critical for performance in school as well. That’s why we’ve seen plenty of kids come into their first martial arts class with low grades and behavior problems, and then do a 180 with better behavior and higher grades than ever as classes progress. Our instructors help them become “indistractable,” listen carefully to their teachers, instructors, parents and peers, and learn how to inspire themselves to complete their homework and projects without an adult’s influence. Kind of awesome!

Martial Arts Teaches Kids CONFIDENCE

Martial Arts for Kids

So we have this amazing kid who pulls great grades and behaves like an angel- that’s awesome for us as adults, and it really is great for the kids too… But you may wonder, how does martial arts benefit the students RIGHT NOW? Where is that short-term benefit to complement the life-long habits of success we’re building? Here’s a secret, the coolest thing about martial arts is that punching and kicking are NOT our main lessons in class. There’s something more important underneath. Martial arts isn’t just a self-defense curriculum. It’s a tool we use to teach confidence from the inside out, a skill that will help kids right off the bat.

Martial arts can be challenging for kids, especially as they’re just starting to learn how to control their bodies and focus. When they’re trying and trying to get a certain move right and continue to persevere because they KNOW they can do it, that’s confidence. When they’re persevering because they think they’re dumb, a failure, or that they’re not going to make someone proud, that’s definitely not confidence. You have to pair both the discipline and the true confidence to have your child become the best they can be.

So in those moments when your child is struggling, our instructors come in and teach them how to engage in positive self talk, which is essentially just telling yourself good things. Instead of “I can’t, I’m dumb, I’ll never get it so what’s the point,” we teach our students to say “I can and I will, I’m trying my best, and I will keep going until I achieve my goal.” And the remarkable thing is, this positive self-talk starts to have an actual impact.

The instructors get through to them, and the kids become more confident. They see that they can truly do anything they put their mind to (with the right attitude), and they make themselves PROUD every week in class by doing more and more cool things. Some of our favorite moments are with kids who start off as shy and unconfident and end up letting their real personalities shine through! One more important topic. Confidence is HUGE for helping kids become what we call bully-proof.

The bullies at school (and in your child’s own head) don’t stand a chance against a confident child. A confident child isn’t afraid to stand up for themselves and others who are being picked on. Imagine if ALL kids were like this! This is why we strongly believe all children should take martial arts classes. The benefits are honestly endless.

Martial Arts is For EVERYONE

Now that you understand how martial arts classes build the foundation for life-long success we’ve established how martial arts fosters life-changing success skills in kids}, we’ll touch on two other practical benefits. First, another cool thing about martial arts is that it’s a great place for kids who are sporty, as they’ll learn those life skills that make them a better athlete overall… But it’s also a real home for kids who are not so sporty and may feel left out because of it. Because martial arts is an individual sport in a group setting, kids who may be shy about being “not so athletic” don’t have to worry about “letting their team down” or getting picked on.

All they focus on is their own growth and improvement (while they cheer on their peers of course!). And because it’s an individual sport, kids learn how to set and get their own goals and recognize their own achievements. It’s excellent for boosting that confidence in not-so-sporty kids and allowing them to be really proud of themselves in a new way.

Don’t forget that martial arts is a form of self defense. Self defense is an important and life-saving skill for EVERYONE to have in their back pocket, no matter their age, gender or ability. We always say it’s something you don’t want to have to use, but will definitely wish you learned if you need it.

Don’t worry- we teach and emphasize nonviolent forms of conflict resolution and make it very clear to students that physical self defense should ONLY be used in a true emergency. But, if a bully gets violent or an emergency happens, it’s important for your child to know how to protect themselves.
