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.

self-defensebwDragon Within would like to take a moment to announce that Miss Nevada, a 4th degree black belt, took the win for Miss America 2014! Good for her, and she did it while standing up martial arts and believing in all that it stands for. But why the backlash? She stated in her interview that colleges are afraid to come out to the public when it comes to woman being assaulted so they brush it under the rug. How truthful she is. And she stands for women defending themselves even when no one else will. In fact statistic’s show that 19% of college girls are sexually assaulted and that the colleges do almost nothing about it.

 

At Dragon Within we agree with Miss Nevada. We think that all women should know how to take care of themselves. Woman should never get caught in a situation they can’t handle. We teach Krav Maga for just that reason. We want to keep everyone safe and well disciplined. From peer pressure to bullying to flat out being attacked, woman need to realize that they don’t have to be alone. With Krav Maga self defence techniques, woman will learn the striking and defense they will need in life to keep themselves out of trouble. Dragon Within even does private lessons to make sure students have a handle on the techniques of Krav Maga. No woman or student or child should be left to defend themselves, but unfortunately we can not change what is going in this world today. The only thing we can do is make sure each and every person is prepared for it and knows how to have discipline and how to react in any given situation. You can not change a person, you can only change yourself to get the reaction out of the person you want. And that reaction is to get them to leave you alone.

Benefits of Martial Arts for Children

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training helps a child develop self-discipline, respect and humility.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a martial art discipline that uses grappling and ground-fighting techniques similar to judo and jiu-jitsu.  It can teach kids to be stronger, more confident and less prone to bullying.  Many children face the problem of being bullied and are vulnerable to various anti-social elements. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can help a child tackle this problem.  The fundamentals of Brazilian jiu-jitsu focus on how a smaller, weaker person can defend against a larger opponent through the use of leverage and flexibility.  It equips the child with the knowledge and skills to intelligently cope with bullying and the skills to protect himself.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be a good way to stay fit. These days, children have an easy access to internet games and TV which can lead to a sedentary life-style. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/Martial Arts can be an interesting way for the child to stay in shape.  Both physically and mentally.

Here at Dragon Within Mixed Martial Art, Salem MA, kids enjoy learning a practical and healthy martial art that is truly effective. Our martial arts curriculum will give your child confidence, discipline and real self-defense skills.
