4 Sneaky Benefits of a Kids Karate Class

There are dozens of benefits of a kids Karate class, that’s why it’s been practiced for thousands of years. But in our eyes, the best 4 benefits are healthy stress management, discipline and perseverance, better grades, and bullyproof-ness. Pretty amazing right? Read on to find out more

 

1. Stress Less 

kids Karate classFrom juggling unprecedented issues like cyberbullying and social media pressures to making friends in a socially distanced world, kids nowadays are stressed way earlier than any kid should be. Stress is a part of life, so it’s best to teach your child early on about how to cope with and manage the stresses of day-to-day life in a positive way.

That’s where martial arts comes in! One of the benefits of a kids Karate class is that it takes place in an environment where kids can not only find a physical outlet for all their energy and worries, but can find a mental one, too. Our instructors are quite sneaky in how they teach important life skills that help your little one succeed outside of the dojo, including stress management. Teaching martial arts to kids is their life passion, and they pass along their sense of discipline and perseverance to their little ones with every kids BJJ classes!

 

2. Discipline and Perseverance

kids Karate classIt’s so important for kids to learn not only stress management, but also discipline and perseverance. Every person, including your little one, is faced with tough decisions and mountains they need strength to overcome. Whether it’s a math test they’re studying for or an audition for a lead role they want to knock out of the park, throughout their childhood, your little one will need discipline and perseverance to see it through!

Kids Karate class is so fun, trust us! But it is challenging sometimes and that’s intentional. There will be days when your child doesn’t want to come to class, just like there will be days when they won’t want to go to swim class. They’ll say they just don’t “feel like” doing either of them. But our world-class instructors teach them how to dig deep and find the self-discipline to keep on keepin’ on. If a student is struggling to break a board, maybe they’re crying or feel like they can’t do it, we’re not giving up on them. All of us, instructors and classmates included, are going to rally around that student and cheer them on. Because they can do it, and when they do, they’ll have a gigantic smile on their face. Believe us!

 

3. Improved Grades

Well, as we mentioned, they learn how to persevere, which helps them stick it out when doing their homework or during a long school day. But perhaps one of the best benefits of martial arts for kids is that it helps them improve their behavior.

When our students learn how to be still and listen intently to the authority figure in front of them, we see those skills transfer to the classroom. Instead of wiggling in their seats and dividing their attention between the pencil sharpener, the teacher’s instructions, and whatever their classmate is doing. They can focus intently on their teacher and the instructions, and learn better than their peers. Parents love to hear that! And that self-control and focus are key components of kids martial arts that they’ll carry with them for life.

 

4. Bullyproof

We’re keen on building our students up to be bullyproof, meaning they learn how to stand up to bullies and defend themselves in a non-violent way. First, we build their confidence. As our young martial arts students see themselves improving on the mat, perfecting their punches and kicks, gaining better coordination, and learning new moves after lots of practice, they become more and more confident in their abilities and themselves.

We also teach our students not to use their martial arts outside of the dojo. Instead of their fists, they learn that their voice is their weapon. We teach them how to articulate themselves and assert themselves to our instructors, their peers, and the classroom bully, to stand up for themselves and others. It’s incredible, and we’re very proud of our bullyproof kids!

 

Conclusion

So did these benefits surprise you? We’re not surprised at all! We see it all the time. Kids walk into our kids Karate school with behavioral issues, low self-esteem, or difficulty focusing, and they walk out the door with improvement in all these areas and a huge smile on their faces. Hands down, it’s our favorite part of our jobs! Hopefully, now you know that the benefits of martial arts for kids go far beyond just self-defense. Martial arts is more of a mindset, or a way of life, that promotes success far beyond the mat! Check out our life-changing, transformative kids BJJ classes right here at our school!
