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.

Dragon Within for Anti-Bullying.

So I want to touch base on some of the youtube videos and such that are going viral. What is with these kids and teenagers beating each other till they end up killing one another? Now I wont go into parenting choices, because frankly, everyone does it differently.

It is said from the mouths of kids that bullying is mean. It makes them feel mad, and want to seek revenge. Are our school system doing enough to stop these bullies in their tracks? And what makes these children lash out and bully in first place? Is it anger? Is it jealousy? This is where self control and discipline comes in.

Children need an outlet. They need a place to release all their energy and frustration. At the same time they need structure and discipline. Dragon Within Martial Arts provides the discipline and structure these kids need in their life. They will be in a group with other peers and will have to show respect to each individual and their instructor. They will follow a strong set of rules. Martial arts will teach awareness and help with prevention of that anger that is instilled in so many troubled kids. It will help develop confidence that so many children and young adults lack in their lives. One of the main reasons for bullying is due to the lack of confidence in ones self.

If Dragon Within martial arts is adopted for a longer length of time, the student will learn to attain proficiency. Some people make martial arts a life long pursuit. This will create a stronger mind to body connection and develop self respect and awareness. The student will learn to focus and open up their mind and body to gain some spiritual connection. Now of course this is different to each person and not everyone will get the same result out of it. But the important part is that everyone learns the respect and discipline.

Isn’t that what we need? Respect for each other and ourselves? I mean isn’t the main reason why we bully is for our own self gain? In a dojo, the expectations of each student are so great, they don’t have time to bully one another. At the same time, it is like a family setting. Everyone supports each other and helps each other. Giving a more relaxed atmosphere and friendly environment.

Having children in Martial Arts programs helps them in many less obvious ways. They are learning social mores and goal setting, in some cases before they even step into elementary school. Here at Dragon Within Martial Arts we believe one of the that the most central aspects of martial arts is Self-Discipline. Children engage in both mind and body during class. They learn listening, self esteem, and teamwork skills. Helping them to develop in these areas, has a direct effect on their confidence, fitness, and they are able to navigate though other parts of their world.  Their behavior in school improves, their concentration, respect and ability to cooperate improves, making for a happier, healthier academic experience. 

The best part is, ITS FUN! They are learning and growing all the while absolutely engaged and enjoying themselves. Some of the topics that we tackle throughout the year include, Handling Bully situations, Respecting others, having a positive attitude and being assertive
