Children Learn Leadership and How To Handle Bullying With Taekwondo in Phoenix

December 19, 2011


Do Your Kids Kick and Punch Like Karate Kids Around The House?

Perhaps you have seen the positive press and exposure Taekwondo and Kids Martial Arts programs have been receiving. Maybe your son or daughter has expressed interest in doing a martial art. You don’t have to be Jackie Chan, Chuck Norris or Bruce Lee to do martial arts. In fact, you might be surprised at what you find for children at one Phoenix Martial Arts school.

Lots of children want to train in Tae Kwon-do because:

o They are being bullied
o They have low self-esteem/confidence
o They have no confidence
o They are lacking in co-ordination/motor skills
o They find it hard to make friends

Our Phoenix Karate Kids children’s program will teach your child core values such as discipline and respect. By starting at an early age, they will develop positive habits to last a lifetime. We believe in bringing out the best in your child and have designed our classes to be entertaining and informative.

With training in USA Martial Arts Phoenix Karate Kids Tae Kwon-do, the content of the classes and the way they are structured, your children will develop:-

o Self confidence, self control, self esteem and self discipline
o Respect for adults and for each other
o The value of setting goals and working towards them
o Non-violent techniques in conflict-resolution
o How to overcome a bully or gang situation
o The Tae Kwon-do training will channel their energy into their Tae Kwon-do skills
The way the instruction is given and broken down for the child, you will see a great improvement in a matter of weeks.
The training in Tae Kwon-do promotes individual and group activities which will develop,

(1) Communication skills, leadership life skills,

(2) Group interactions/activities.

Children who acquire self-confidence at an early age are far more likely to succeed in their adult ambitions. Martial Arts training is arguably the best method of instilling confidence into children and at the same time emphasises the importance of respect and discipline. As a result of the fast and exciting nature of Martial Arts there are thousands of children participating throughout Arizona, the USA; and worldwide there are millions.

Children see Martial Arts training as the ultimate activity, in our classes everybody wins, it’s not just who’s the best gets to play.

Our system of training is based on inner development and self-expression; concentration, focus, goal setting, self-achievement are the topics of discussion. Motor skill development, co-ordination, flexibility and self-awareness are the basics to the physical training.

Children learn to reach their full potential through our confidence building martial arts program. Caring Instructors provide expert training in a fun and safe, although still disciplined environment, to produce positive results.

Psychological Impact and Benefits of Martial Arts for Children

March 29, 2011


Psychological Impact and Benefits of Martial Arts for Children. Scientific research backs putting kids in martial arts.

Martial Arts is Great for Children – Scientists Agree!
Many parents are reaching out to help their children have a brighter future with martial arts. From developing bullying prevention skills, safety skills for anti-abduction, building confidence and a positive self image to building a solid foundation for healthy minds and bodies, martial arts is giving children an edge.

Taekwondo | Karate | Kung Fu | Martial Arts is More Than Kicks and Punches
Martial Arts has numerous benefits beyond the kick, punch, block and throw. From establishing a class structure that helps children learn to follow directions, develop social skills, focus and complete tasks to rewarding positive behavior, it can have powerful lasting effects.

Taekwondo, Karate, Kung Fu, Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Aikido, regardless of style, classical Martial Arts schools offer character education. Martial Arts classes also teach anger management, verbal diffusion skills, critical thinking and problem solving in addition to solid self defense. So not only do children get in better shape and have healthy activity for their bodies, but they benefit mentally as well.

Martial Arts Gives Children an Edge in School and Life
This goes a long way for parents looking to give their children an edge in university acceptance, scholarships and being prepared for a rapidly changing future.

The cultural aspects are another often overlooked benefit of martial arts for children as they increase cultural awareness, teach and reinforce foreign languages and provide unique opportunities.

Can Doing Martial Arts Make You Smarter?
Research also shows brain development in both hemispheres from using the body and mind in unique ways. Martial Arts has been linked to increased intelligence, memory, creativity and concentration.

Beyond School
Parents today are recognizing that the public school system is not enough. Millions of parents are bringingmartial arts, as we teach here, into their children’s lives to supplement their education.

Psychology Today on Martial Arts for Children
Carleton University, in a study reported in Psychology Today (January 1985), found that children in martial arts have a lower level of anxiety; an increased sense of responsibility; a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks; a higher sense of self-esteem; higher level of social intelligence; and were less likely to be radical.

Parents report these five important benefits their children experience in our USA Martial Arts Phoenix school:

1. Martial Arts reward system improves children’s self-esteem
Martial arts are not like team sports because the emphasis is on developing the individual’s self-esteem not the team’s winning record. The belt system is the key. When kids earn their belts it gives them a great sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves. Nobody sits on the bench in martial arts class.

2. Martial Arts program teaches children discipline.
One of the things parents appreciate most about our classes is the improvement in their child’s self-discipline. We have a wonderful staff of patient instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about boundaries and safety. We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school. This is why so many parents are choosing martial arts to improve reinforce good character.

3. Martial Arts activities channel children’s aggression
Many doctors, counselors and psychologists actually prescribed our school for treatment because of the positive outlet it gives the kids for all their energy. Martial Arts track record for success in this arena is well established.

4. Martial Arts confidence classes enhance children’s self-esteem
We believe confidence is one of the most important things we can give kids. That’s why every class we teach has confidence-building drills included. Children develop a greater self concept because of a feeling of accountability, healthy boundaries, structure and consistent reward. Children also develop their emotional intelligence and discover their individual gifts and abilities.

5. USA Martial Arts program teaches children essential self-defense skills
Our program teaches practical, proven self-defense methods. We also teach the kids that the moves they learn in class will work, so they don’t go home and try them on their sister, or neighbor. They develop a sense of empathy and learn when and when not to use their martial arts skills.

Citizenship, Character and Life Lessons From Martial Arts Masters Series

Over the 20 plus years of teaching martial arts, parents have often commented how amazed they are at the transformation in confidence they see in their child. Sometimes it happens quickly and other times it takes a bit longer. Without a doubt martial arts has proven itself as one of the best ways to build a child’s self esteem.


Secrets To Building Self Confidence The USA Martial Arts Way
The next strategy that can make an instant change in your child’s confidence is eye contact.

FREE UNIFORM TRIAL SPECIAL

Have your child practice making and maintaining eye contact upon meeting others. Encourage them to maintain eye contact when someone is asking them a question. Eye contact communicates confidence and self assuredness.

Eye contact like we teach at USA Martial arts says to others that you have inner strength. As children practice using more eye contact, they begin to feel a sense of empowerment. Children begin to see positive response in others and how they are treated. This reinforces their innate value and builds a sense of self worth.

It is important to practice it as well. Good social skills and habits are like muscles – the more you you exercise them, the stronger they become. Have your child role play a polite greeting with eye contact.

You can also try martial arts lessons where these habits are encouraged and reinforced on a regular basis.
