Exercise and martial arts specific training have an important impact on children’s development. Karate improves the general health of the child, but especially the emotional one, by increasing the respect and self-confidence. In addition, it reduces tension, stress, anxiety and depression.
From the developmental stage of their lives, children will focus only on the basics of martial arts behavior. Basic techniques include: proper sports form, punches, kicks, kick blocking and avoidance techniques.
Teamwork And Positive Social Interaction
Teamwork is necessary for any small child to develop. At this stage of their lives, children develop an understanding and confidence in their ability to work with others. This discipline helps them to integrate well in a team and to develop their relationship skills.
Self-Discipline And Responsibility
The child learns in karate training that self-discipline is fun and full of satisfaction. The instructors instil this vision through real-world games, exercises and activities, oriented towards interactive and team work. During the training sessions, the child begins to improve his ability to take responsibility, follow directions and take pride in doing the right thing.
One of the most important words in martial arts is respect. Students are taught to respect their instructors and, at the same time, themselves. Instructors spend a lot of time during training discussing the importance of respecting teachers and parents. Unfortunately, respect is often lacking in many aspects of today’s society.
A child’s social behavior should be directly related to his or her evolution in martial arts training sessions. Karate means personal development and the desire to become a better person.
Children who use bullying use their power – such as physical power, access to embarrassing information or popularity – to control or harm others. Both children, both the aggressor and the aggressor, can face serious and lasting problems.
Karate students can learn to manage situations without the use of violence, learning ways to assess threats, redirect verbal attacks and mobilize the audience, which is an essential factor in the phenomenon of bullying.
Fun And Good Cheer
Maintaining the little ones’ interest in preparing for martial arts requires the introduction of fun and playful elements. Traditionalists are usually concerned only with the discipline and structure of training. At other clubs, however, the inclusion of fun that involves proper techniques will add value to the training and keep children eager to further improve their skills.
Social Skills And Friendship
Friendships are an important part of childhood. In many cases, karate training is performed in a positive atmosphere. Family-oriented activities help the little ones make new friends, while learning the concepts of compassion and conflict resolution.
