S How Children Benefit from Martial Arts Training Contributed by Todd Bernier
• Children and adolescents today often grow up seeing fictionalized representations of martial artists on television, in the movies, and on the Internet. These fictional versions use violence to defeat antagonists and save the day. However, in real life, martial arts center on self-control versus unrestrained aggression, and children who take lessons in the sport learn this valuable skill and its overall importance to success in life.
• Martial arts training also provides a number of other benefits to young children as well as teenagers. For one, they develop self-confidence as well as respect for one another and their elders. They hone their focus and ability to concentrate; they learn critical leadership and social skills; and they find relief from stress. Kids who do not prefer team sports may find the activity more suited to their mental and physical strengths too. Furthermore, children with learning difficulties and hyperactivity disorders, such as Attention Deficit Disorder, specifically benefit from martial arts because of the structured training approach involved in the sport’s classes.
