Summer is almost here! All of us are looking forward to lots of daylight, warmer weather, and of course trips to the beach. Wouldn’t it be comforting to know your child will be safe and independent this summer? Here are 5 reasons why Martial Arts will help your child to feel capable and self-assured this summer.

  1. Self-Defense

Your child will feel empowered by learning self-defense techniques and strategies during their martial arts training. Self-defense is a need for kids that they wont learn anywhere else. Learning Martial Arts will help the build confidence in their ability to handle themselves if necessary.

  1. Bully Proof

Just having the confidence to know they can handle a situation can make all the difference in the world. We often tell our children to stick up for themselves if someone is bulling them. However, if kids don’t have the confidence in their physical ability then they wont feel comfortable speaking up for themselves. Martial Arts will Bully Proof your child.

  1. Increase Self-Esteem

Martial Arts instill confidence and self esteem in its students. Learning how to master a punch can make a child feel more capable in their physical abilities. The increase in self-esteem leads students to feeling more confident in taking on new challenges.

  1. Exposure to diversity

Participating in a Martial Arts Program this summer will give your child an opportunity to meet other children that they wouldn’t normally meet. Through interactions with new people your child will learn that the world is a big place with lots of people that do different things than they do.

  1. New Friendships

Often children will continue Martial Arts long after the summer is over. The relationships made through a martial arts program are positive lasting friendships.

Helping your child to establish lasting friendships, confidence, and assertiveness will benefit them when they doing things on their own. The skills they learn will help them in all aspects of life for years to come. In the long run enrolling your child in a Martial Arts Summer Camp will benefit your child for their lifetime.

What are the Statistics for Bullying in schools?

Most kids who get bullied want to know how to protect themselves using martial arts.  Truth is, the martial arts itself isn’t what will be the greatest asset to your child resolving their bulling issues.  The key is the confidence they gain through martial arts.  Reality of it all is that WORST CASE scenario–they will use their martial arts skills for self-defense.  We want them to learn how to intelligently cope with bullying through positive social values and disciplines.  Do we teach children extremely practical and realistic self-defense techniques?  Of course we do! However, our goal is to teach them that violence is not the way to solve it unless it is entirely necessary to protect themselves.

The problem with bullying in schools is that there is no clear solution.  The teachers, principals and councilors don’t see the magnitude of the effects that their lack of involvement has on children who are being bullied.  That’s why, as parents, seeking out an alternative to just putting your faith that it will resolve within the school, is imperative to your child’s state of mind and most of all their safety. Talk to your children.  Get involved.  Take Action.
