Benefits of Martial Arts for Kids
With television shows coming out like Karate Kid, martial arts training is making a comeback more than ever before. While training does incorporate kicking, punching, and breaking boards, the benefits are far greater than that. Don’t get me wrong, that stuff is insanely cool and fun to do, but with Venture Martial Arts, your child will improve their lives in every single way.
On the most obvious and basic level, taekwondo improves physical health. With a diverse program that includes cardio, strength training, and stretching, we help your child build strong and lean muscles that carry them through their entire lives. By coming to martial arts classes consistently, they improve their endurance and get out any pent-up energy from a day sitting in school. We encourage all students to eat a balanced diet consisting of essential macronutrients, which builds the foundation for healthy eating habits as they get older.
Not only do martial arts lessons help with physical health, but kids are also taught healthy mental habits as well. In each class, the students learn and practice the nine essential life skills- confidence, focus, discipline, perseverance, attitude, integrity, dedication, goals, and respect. By learning and using these skills in class they are able to carry them into their everyday lives. This is reflective at school, at home, and among their friends.
To give an example, the students are taught to do everything immediately. That means at home when you, as the parent, tell them to do something, they do it without any pushback. While they are taught to focus in karate classes, they will take that learned focus and pay attention to their teachers in school. If they fail at doing something during their lessons, they are taught to persevere and try again. If they fail a test or any other task, they will try again and never give up. By consistently training these life skills, they will gain the confidence to take on any task in life.
Venture Martial Arts is all about how we teach our students to have an outlook on life. Through failures and success, they build resilience and mental toughness. By taking the steps to venture to a better life, their outlook on life is positive and they never give up no matter the circumstance. When faced with challenges they always see the positive in situations and view it as an opportunity to grow. We teach our students to take control of their life, actions, and outcomes. If you view life as something that you make happen versus something that is happening to you, then you have the Venture outlook on life. At Venture, we learn to always accept responsibility and respond proactively.
There are so many benefits to martial arts training. By enrolling your child in the Venture to a Better Life program, you are taking the step to give them the best life imaginable. They will have all the tools they need to be healthy, happy, and successful throughout their entire life.
