There is no getting around it – screens are a part of our daily lives. But, there are ways that you can encourage your kids to get some time away from the couch with more physical activity.
Martial arts is a great physical activity for all ages, especially for kids. And here are a few ways that martial arts promotes more physical activity in kids:
Martial arts is ongoing, and everyone always participates.
Unlike other sports or activities, martial arts training is ongoing. And because it doesn’t have a season, it’s easy for kids to maintain momentum in martial arts and keep up with what they’re learning. At the same time, everyone always participates in a martial arts class. There is no bench to sit on; kids are always moving and learning for the entire class.
Martial arts is engaging and fun.
Some kids have so much fun with martial arts that they don’t even realize that it’s also “exercise.” Because martial arts is a fun and mentally engaging activity, kids are more likely to stick with it. And when your child finds something at an early age that promotes healthy habits and physical activity, they’re more likely to continue these habits into their adult lives.
Martial arts is for everyone.
If your child hasn’t participated in many sports or activities, you might be wondering where to start. Martial arts really is for everyone – all ages, experience levels, and fitness levels. Because martial arts is about individual improvement, your child can get started at any time and progress at his or her own pace.
