4 Top Reasons Martial Arts is the Best After School Activity for Kids
Martial Arts is a Fantastic Sports Program!
Traditional Martial Arts are great after school classes because they help kids improve their athletic abilities. Martial Arts is a sport that motivates individuals to work on endurance, coordination, power, agility, balance, speed, and flexibility. As kids progress from each belt, they also learn life values such as respecting their parents and teachers, focusing on tasks until completion, and developing discipline to achieve desired outcomes. Becoming a Black Belt is not an easy feat, but the kids become passionate about working hard toward this goal. In addition to becoming the best martial artists, the kids have fun learning new belt level techniques and playing all of our martial arts inspired games. In our program, kids learn belt level appropriate techniques, self-defense, tumbling (Ex: rolling, cartwheeling, flipping), leadership skills, board breaking, and light sparring. Class is never boring! Martial Arts is a super fun after school activity that kids look forward to!
Martial Arts Builds Character!
Working on becoming a Black Belt after school hours teaches kids good character. Choe’s HapKiDo Martial Arts shows kids the values of respect, discipline, perseverance, and ethics. There are a number of ways we help kids to learn these traits. When they come to class, kids learn the importance of paying attention, listening, following directions, and staying focused while calm. Another way, each belt level has the kids observe a couple traits at a time. For example, while a Yellow Belt reflects on honor and family, an Orange Belt observes sincerity and friendship. Lastly, and what the kids especially love, we have our Super Star Program! Every month, the instructors challenge students to get good grades, read books, volunteer, write letters to their teachers and parents, and do chores. The kids love being competitive, while doing their best to participate in the fun. This program also inspires kids to build good habits!
Helping kids to develop character development is one way we see them grow. What’s great about our program is that parents and teachers notice amazing changes in their kids when they take martial arts. Most importantly, the kids increase in confidence and self-esteem.
Martial Arts Teaches Kids How to Reach Goals
Traditional Martial Arts shows kids the beauty of reaching goals! Our classes teach kids how to create long-term and short-term goals, take action, stay motivated, and persevere through obstacles. For example, as a child’s goal is to become an amazing Black Belt, they learn it’s achieved by acquiring the other belt levels first. From their hard work and dedication, they learn to be patient with themselves and to not give up on their goals. Having experience in tackling a huge goal like a Black Belt shows kids their potential, and it gives them confidence to pursue whatever they set their minds to.
Martial Arts Helps Kids to Make Great Friends
At Choe’s HapKiDo, the best friendships are made here! Having fun training together builds special bonds between the kids. In class, kids enjoy socializing with each other as they work in pairs and groups for various exercises. In addition to classes, the instructors love to host fun social events at our Martial Arts Schools. For example, kids look forward to our annual Summer Championship! This event is where students demonstrate their skills and have opportunities to win trophies. Other fun events include Nerf wars, birthday parties, Halloween parties, winter holiday parties, and more! Our Kids Martial Arts program is a great balance of teaching traditional martial arts and having fun all year round!
