At Berkshire CKD we are huge believers in the benefits martial arts training can have for kids and learning self defence is only a small part of this. Our aim is to equip children with ALL the skills they need to succeed in life and nothing makes us prouder than seeing a child improve not just their martial arts techniques but their character and personality too. The many benefits your child can gain from martial arts training include:
Children who struggle to make new friends and thrive in a social environment may find it easier to do so in a martial arts class than they do in the playground. Martial arts classes provide a setting where they are surrounded by peers, all sharing the same common interest and goals, allowing children to interact with and help each other as they pursue those common interests. Martial arts training often involves many partner based drills and activities that further encourage social interaction by forcing children to pair up and build their skills together.
One of the core values of all forms of martial arts is a strong focus on self-discipline. Computer games provide today's children with an unrealistic level of instant gratification, making it difficult to instil values of discipline and self-restraint. Martial arts training, however, continually reminds your child of the benefits of patience, hard work and self-discipline. We are often being told by the media that there is a problem with obesity in our young people and how difficult it is to get today's children off the couch and away from the various screens demandng their attention. Martial arts training not only encourages your child to be more physically active but does so in a fun and rewarding environment that inspires them to continue being active outside of class. Your child can even keep active when the weather outside does not allow for any outside activities by practicing their techniques and patterns from the comfort of their own home.
The benefits of martial arts training don’t end when class does. The boost in confidence, increased fitness levels and new co-operation skills will also help your child navigate the academic and social aspects of school, affect their behavior at home and have an all around good influence on them as they develop into an adult. The start of the new school year is the perferct time to get your child involved in martial arts, equipping them with all the skills they need to thrive which is why we are running our biggest ever back to school offer.
