With a bloodcurdling cry, your 6-year old leaps into the air in a karate kick, raising your hair and blood pressure simultaneously.  Before you panic and pad the walls, try channeling this urge into a martial arts class.

Martial arts is a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus.  Some parents may think they also promote violence, but that's not true according to Master Greg Silva, President of Black Belt Schools International.  The martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills.  In fact, may parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.

A typical class begins and ends with respect by a bow to the teacher and parents. Next the kids have an affirmation pledging to have self discipline, a positive attitude, to use common sense before self defense and to never give up.


Progress is marked by the belt and patch systems, which take the beginner from a white belt through a series of colored belts until adult patches are earned. Testing for each new level, generally every three months, is a good exercise in setting and achieving goals.

But experts say that it's the respect kids learn, whether from bowing or standing still and waiting for the next command, that can be the most important benefit. It often carries over into school, helping to improve behavior and even grades, according to recent research.

Kids can benefit as young as age 4 with motor and social skills.  As they get older there is a bigger emphasis on self defense and competition.

 Be sure to visit a school and participate in a trial class to see the teachers in action and make sure it's a fit for you and your child.

Each understudy keen on gaining a dark belt ought to consider group preparing as a way to expand and widen their comprehension of the hand to hand fighting. Rivaling understudies from different schools is likewise crucial.

For me, there's no right age for teaching martial arts. As long as the child is ready to learn, that's the right time for them to teach martial arts. As we all know, it is important to learn martial arts for self defense to those bad guys out there. It also makes your body healthy as it is also a form of exercise. It is where you can enjoy while making your body healthier.
