Knowing that you can stand up to a bully and defend yourself is more than a confidence builder: It can change how a child approaches life in general, confident and without fear. In addition, the belt system gives a child measurable goals that are realistic to attain, and as their skills increase, so does the status and respect they receive from their fellow students. The sense of accomplishment a child feels by mastering a technique or graduating to a new belt follows them everywhere they go.
Respect is the foundation of a healthy student – teacher relationship. A student who respects his teacher will listen attentively, follow instructions and be willing to let his teacher push him/her to new heights of personal fitness and skill. Respect is an integral part of Martial Art tradition. Bowing, standing at attention, sitting properly, and showing effort are constantly re-enforced to create a respectful, healthy learning environment. But respect is earned: A good teacher must be knowledgeable, patient and must truly care about his students. We press upon our students to show respect to self, parents, teachers, family, community and their peers at every opportunity.
One of the most obvious benefits of Martial Arts is physical fitness. Martial arts training will improve a child's cardiovascular fitness, strength, balance, reflexes, agility, coordination, and flexibility. In addition, we incorporate basic strength & conditioning (Jumping Jacks, Wind Sprints, Push ups, pull ups, planks, back raises, wall sits, stretching, etc.) into every single class we teach.
The ability to defend yourself against an assailant is at the heart of every Martial Art: It is the reason why they were created in the first place. Martial Arts gives you the tools to defend yourself, but also helps you to think about the best course of action: Anticipating and avoiding potential danger, resolving conflict verbally and walking away with confidence. The training will build up the reflexes you need should you be in a dangerous situation, and give you the confidence to stand up for yourself and fight back if needed.
