Disclaimer - your kid will learn to do things that might freak you out at first.

Unlike youth basketball or swimming lessons, your child will learn to punch, kick, grapple, block, and more. Even though it takes place in a controlled and monitored environment, the very nature of martial arts is, to various degrees, aggressive.

In most martial arts schools or academies, an ethos of honor and prompt obedience to instructions permeates the atmosphere and students catch it quickly. Many parents note an increased level of compliance at home once their child begins practicing martial art. 

 

Also, they will be challenged to dedicate themselves to press on in their pursuit of the next level of achievement in their respective discipline. Whether it is passing a hands-on test while the student’s instructor grades them or demonstrating proficiency to graduate to the next belt color, kids learn to stick it out even when it’s hard.

In many martial arts traditions, students of all ages must show honor (often bowing) to their instructor as well as other classmates. Such a simple gesture sets the tone for what’s in store. It serves as a reminder to everyone that martial arts demands focus, respect, and self-restraint – all things that qualify as excellent life skills.

WAYS MARTIAL ARTS CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE FOR THE BETTER

Martial Arts Promotes Healthy Eating ~  Psychological Benefits Are HUGE ~ Martial Artists Never Stop Learning

Fight Camp Training

Many sports require one set of muscles to be used more than another. For example, competitive swimmers have strong shoulders, cyclists have strong quads, and soccer players have strong lower bodies. In order to be safe and successful in the ring, MMA trainers and fighters need to have a strong lower body, upper body, and abdominals.

MMA workouts are designed to incorporate practically every muscle of the body. When you kick as often as an MMA fighter does, your legs become incredibly strong. As you punch, your arms become equally strong. And, the more you grapple, the stronger your core will become. MMA training also improves flexibility tremendously.
