The Karate Kid (Kung Fu Kid) Premiers and The Martial Arts Industry Holds Its Breath

June 11, 2010


“Wax on Wax Off”

Thousands of martial arts enthusiasts, practitioners and instructors are eagerly awaiting the release of the Karate Kid this weekend. For those of us who have been in the industry for a while and uphold the traditional values, we’re hoping and praying that this movie will have a similar effect as the original Karate Kid starring Pat Morita (Miyagi) and Ralph Macchio (Daniel).

In the mid 80s the martial arts industry saw a massive influx of children into local martial arts schools due to a fundamental shift in the popular perception of martial arts.

“Sweep the leg!”

The original Karate Kid captured the hearts and minds of audiences everywhere with the classic new kid on the block underdog story. It was the Charles Atlas 97 pound weakling gets his revenge against the bully with some clever twists and deeper lessons.

“An enemy confronts you he deserves no mercy.”, John Kreese (Martin Kove) of the Cobra Kai dojo

Most importantly, the original Karate Kid movie demonstrated the dignity, wisdom and life-affirming values found in classical martial arts when taught by a caring and qualified teacher. This is a far cry from the violent image many of today’s parents hold of martial arts from more recent promotion efforts of events like the UFC and cage fighting.

Rarely promoted are the lessons of good manners, compassion, honor and restraining self control, the hallmark of a classical (traditional) martial arts education.

Instead of ego driven, glory-seeking, knuckle-dragging inter-male violence jockeying for position on the social ladder, the Karate Kid revealed that our biggest battle is within ourselves. The wise Master Myagi helped Daniel Larusso learn that our greatest opponent is our own fears, insecurities and self-doubt. When we begin to understand those things, we are better equipped to handle other challenges in life such as bullies.

When the first Karate Kid demonstrated the respect, honor and age-old classical martial arts lesson of “Karate (Martial Arts) is for defense only”, mothers everywhere saw how Martial Arts helps improve confidence, attitude, and develop inner strength to avoid fighting. The coming of age tale showed how the mild-mannered Miyagi used his brains over brawn to stop the bullying and fighting while helping Daniel earn respect. The teen character Daniel ultimately learns that one can find honor in avoiding a fight and winning others respect.

Through the teaching of his eccentric mentor Miyagi, Daniel learns not only karate, but also important life lessons, such as the importance of focus, balance, dedication, hard work and the belief that martial arts training is as much about training the spirit as the body.

My hope is that the new Karate Kid movie starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan restores some of the dignity and honor to martial arts. I hope that viewers see the education and martial arts life affirming values, rather than making a silly mockery with clown-like antics or unnecessary violent messages.

Perhaps it is overly optimistic to place such high hopes as this on a film simply designed to entertain and sell movie tickets and popcorn.

“It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get up.”

However, I’m still holding out hope that the film can recapture some of that magic in a bottle as the original Karate Kid film and deliver a positive message that resonates with children and parents alike.

Martial Arts stands ready with the solutions to many modern-day problems for children including: handling bullies, resolving conflicts peacefully, combating the pediatric obesity epidemic and instilling patriotism, manners, integrity, honor and respect.

WHY EVERY PARENT SHOULD HAVE THEIR CHILD LEARN MARTIAL ARTS

April 2, 2010

WHY EVERY PARENT SHOULD HAVE THEIR CHILD LEARN MARTIAL ARTS

By Shihan Dave Kovar

I believe that every child should learn Martial Arts.

There is a reason why Oprah, Dr Phil, Dr Laura Schlesinger, Jillian Michaels (Biggest Loser), Tony Robbins, pediatricians, child physiologists, and educators the world over all have alluded to the fact that Martial Arts is one of the most valuable things you can involve your child in.

It goes way beyond self defense and can help a child in nearly every aspect of their life. Improved health and fitness, athletic enhancement, increased confidence, better concentration, better behavior, more courteous and respectful; martial arts can help in all these areas.

Does this sound too good to be true? It’s not. As a matter of fact, many experts agree that in this day and age of escalating childhood obesity, increased playground violence and deteriorating family structure, if you do nothing else for your child, you should make sure that they learn how to swim and they learn martial arts. Let’s discuss why.

Self Defense – “Practice the fight so that you don’t have to” is a phrase that is often used to describe the self defense benefits of martial arts training. It refers to the fact that as a child becomes more confident in their ability to defend themselves thru martial arts training. The need to defend themselves automatically decreases because they unconsciously begin to carry themselves in a more confident manner and that confidence is projected to those around them, making them less vulnerable to predatory behavior. On top of that, martial arts’ training includes strategic self defense as well as actual self defense. Children are taught how to recognize a potentially dangerous situation and how to avoid confrontations.

Athletic Enhancement – There is a reason why virtually every professional sports team in virtually every major sport supplements their training with martial arts. Martial arts training offer several advantages. First off, it is amazingly effective in enhancing general coordination because it uses every part of the body in a balanced way. Upper body, lower body, right side, left side, forward movement, lateral movement, rotational movement, it’s all included in martial arts training.

Fitness – The three pieces of the fitness puzzle are strength, flexibility and endurance. Martial arts training demand a balance between the three. Therefore, a child who trains in martial arts will find their deficiencies greatly enhanced. Also, because of the balance in the three pieces of the fitness puzzle, they are less likely to injure themselves while participating in other athletic endeavors.

Health – Martial arts training is a proven link to better health for people of all ages, but especially children for several reasons. First off, it is great exercise. But because it is fun, kids don’t mind doing it. Discussing diet and lifestyle habits with students is a part of martial arts training, so children who grow up training develop healthy habits that will stick with them for life.

Concentration – Very few activities engage the mind, body and spirit more than martial arts. Because of this, a child’s ability to concentrate is greatly enhanced by their martial arts training and this concentration tends to be easily transferable to other activities.

Respect and Courtesy – Due to the fact that martial arts teaches techniques that could be harmful to others if applied, martial arts instructors are obliged to stress the importance of respect, courtesy, and restraint. It has been proven time and again that children who are skilled in martial arts tend to be extremely respectful, considerate and composed.

Confidence – Martial arts virtually always lends to increased confidence in children for a couple of specific reasons. First off, there are no bench sitters, every child participates and is judged not against others but more importantly, against their own potential. Secondly, the structure of martial arts is built on the concept of setting children up for success by giving them a series of realistic, short term goals that they can attain quickly while keeping them focused on an exciting, long term goal. Each time they experience success, their confidence improves until they tend to believe that with hard work and dedication, they can accomplish just about anything.

Parents, would you like your child to have unshakable confidence, solid self-esteem, better focus and self-control?

April 1, 2010

Our students learn to “zero in” on critical tasks at hand and develop the ability to stay on task. They develop the ability to maintain focus, and develop self-discipline and self-control. All these attributes combine to improve academic achievement and the ability to make smart choices in friends, behavior, and other activities.
