WHY PARENTS SHOULD THINK ABOUT THEIR CHILD TAKING UP THE SPORT OF KICKBOXING
Junior Kickboxing Classes in Maltby, Killamarsh, Long Eaton and Dronfield... From 4 Years & Over.
With countless testimonials over the years from many of our students that have changed their lives using the many benefits that come with practicing the martial art of Kickboxing.
Our Junior Kickboxing programme (theninjacollective) has many benefits for children. And these benefits go beyond just keeping them fit and healthy; they provide qualities and life lessons that are undeniably valuable to a growing child.
1 discipline and focus
With martial arts a child will learn focus, patience, restraint, and the many qualities that come with discipline. The same level of discipline and focus obtained from practicing martial arts will no doubt become a part of their daily lives.
2 They will learn how to defend themselves
The cold facts… the "DoSomething" website reports that:
- Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year.
- Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying.
- Students report being bullied 2 to 3 times a month or more within a school term.
- 1 in 4 teachers misunderstand the bullying situation
- 1 in 10 students drop out of school because of repeated bullying
- Over 67% of students believe that schools respond poorly to bullying, with a high percentage of students believing that adult help is infrequent & ineffective
On top of teaching children to avoid trouble altogether, martial arts will also prepare them both mentally and physically to defend themselves should the need ever arise.
3 It helps children stay active, healthy and fit.
In an age where turning to the screens of devices or television sets instead of outdoor activities, martial arts is the perfect way to get kids to stay active.
On top of that, martial arts build muscle and increase cardiovascular performance, ensuring that your child is fit and healthy.
4 It develops athleticism
The movements involved in martial arts will help build good movement skills, flexibility, reflexes and dexterity, which help develop a child’s athleticism. This helps create a good athletic base that will help them excel other activities.
5 Be respectful
Respect is a big part of martial arts and its traditions. Our students learn to be well mannered and respectful not only to their instructors, but towards everyone else they meet in life.
Just for fun, fitness, or to bully-proof your child, martial arts is a great way to build a child’s character that will last a lifetime.
