Why All Parents Should Enroll Their Children in Martial Arts

Every Parent Should Enroll Their Child in a Martial Arts Program

There is a reason why Oprah, Dr. Phil, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, Tony Robbins, Jillian Michaels (Biggest Loser),boy-kick-karate feat img smaller copypediatricians, child psychologists, and educators all agree that Martial Arts is one of the most valuable activities you can involve your child in. Martial Arts classes go beyond learning self defense. They help children (and adults for that matter) in nearly every aspect of their lives: improved health and fitness, enhanced athletic performance, increased confidence, better concentration, better behavior, increased self respect and respect for others. 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 they learn Martial Arts. Let’s discuss why.

Self Defense

“Practice the fight so 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 through Martial Arts training, the need to defend themselves decreases because they subconsciously begin to carry themselves in a more confident manner. 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 potentially dangerous situations and how to avoid confrontation.

Athletic Enhancement

There is a reason why virtually every professional sports team supplements their training with Martial Arts. First, 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, lateral movement, and rotational movement are all included.


The 3 pieces of the fitness puzzle are strength, flexibility, and endurance. Martial Arts training demands a balance between the three, therefore your child will greatly enhance his or her abilities in each area. Also, because of the balance between the three pieces of the fitness puzzle, these children are less likely to injure themselves while participating in other athletic endeavors.
