Better Than Any Toy Out There!
The holiday season is upon us, and that means finding the perfect gift for our loved ones, and the latest toys, video games, and Lego sets are all on your children’s wish list, which is undoubtedly a mile long. Let’s be honest though; what actually occurs when your kid gets that cool new toy?
They play with the toy for a month before moving on to something else, and then it ends up in the playroom to live a dusty life of little fulfilment.
Why not give your child a present that they will cherish forever and not grow bored of, outgrow, or leave on a shelf? Why not give them a gift that will keep on giving? This holiday season, give the gift of Martial Arts!
Kids just want to have fun, and attending classes at PCS is definitely that! The first time your child sets foot into the dojo and steps onto the mat, they will see just how exciting learning martial arts can be. That excitement will only continue to grow as they progress in their training!
IT WILL TEACH THEM HOW TO FOCUS
In order to be successful in martial arts, you must have focus. One of the first skills that we teach children is to pay attention to their instructor. Children will need to listen and watch carefully in order to repeat the moves they are being taught.
IT WILL TEACH THEM PATIENCE
You don’t become a black belt overnight. Martial arts requires perseverance to master techniques. Your child’s patience will improve by taking martial arts training. They will exercise patience in every lesson, whether it be with themselves (if they are having trouble with a move) or learning to be patient while waiting their turn with an instructor.
IT WILL GET THEM MOVING
Physical activity is so important for a child’s development. A fantastic technique to get the body moving is through martial arts. Children’s motor skills will see a substantial improvement over time. They will become stronger and more flexible, as well as more coordinated and dynamic.
IT WILL GIVE THEM CONFIDENCE
Your child’s confidence will increase as they learn new martial arts techniques. Children may find it difficult to pick up new skills and movements, but with perseverance and practice, they will be able to use the new skill or move. Martial arts encourages students to work hard as achievements are rewarded. As they practice working toward their objective, their confidence increases.
IT WILL TEACH THEM RESILIENCE
All that hard work and dedication not only boosts their confidence, but it teaches them to be resilient. Children understand that in order to achieve their goals and move forward in their program they must continue to practice – and never give up when it feels hard. This is such a great skill for children to learn and it will serve them well in other aspects of their lives.
