12 Ways MARTIAL ARTS will HELP your CHILD build CONFIDENCE and GROW…while having FUN!

At Inspired Martial Arts, we believe that a child’s total wellbeing, both psychological and physical, can be strengthened simultaneously. While the physical aspects of exercise and Martial Arts training improve your child’s general health, it likewise improves emotional health with increased selfesteem and self-confidence as well as decreased tension, stress, anxiety and depression.

Here are just a few of the BENEFITS of our MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAMS for your child:

1. SELF-DEFENCE - The instructors at Inspired Martial Arts have trained for many years to make sure everything we teach is reality based. We have trained under some of the best Martial Artists in the world and are dedicated to staying on the cutting-edge of realistic Martial Arts training for ourselves and for your children! Your child may still be in the developmental stage of their life and will focus only on the basics of our Martial Arts Curriculum. Basic Techniques include: Proper exercise form, punching, kicking, blocking and evasion techniques.

2. FOCUSING AND LISTENING - At Inspired Martial Arts, we know FOCUS plays a crucial role in the mind-set of children who have limited attention spans at this stage in their life. Our Program will build their attention span… teaching your child to focus on the task at hand while improving their listening and reaction skills at the same time. As a result, your child will excel in physical activity, improve their ability to stay focused, and become an astute listener in the dojo, at home, and in school.

3. TEAMWORK AND POSITIVE SOCIAL INTERACTION - Teamwork is necessary for any young child to develop. It is at this stage in their life that they develop an understanding and a confidence in their ability to work with others. At the Inspired Martial Arts, our activity-based curriculum and teamwork-oriented environment, develops character and teaches your child that the more we work together in the Dojo, at home and at school…the more we get accomplished .

4. COORDINATION AND MOTOR SKILLS - Children with strong bodies, fine-tuned motor skills and physical coordination developed through our Programs will have improved: General Health, Sports Performance, as well as other physical activities such as dancing or bike riding. Our Coordination and Motor Skills Training will develop your child’s cardiovascular system, their muscular strength, and will create a general kind of body awareness which can only be gained from a whole-body method of Martial Arts training. At Inspired Martial Arts, your child will be more coordinated, less susceptible to injuries, and be much more aware of their body and how to use it correctly.

5. SELF-CONFIDENCE - Nothing can take the place of the security in knowing that your child can defend themselves should the need ever arise… and your own child’s self confidence in knowing this themselves is immense. “People who continue to practice the Martial Arts for prolonged periods are different from the general populace in these ways: they have a lower level of anxiety; an increased sense of responsibility; they are less likely to be radical; they have an increased level of self-esteem; and they are more socially intelligent.” (Source – Psychology Today, May 1985.)

6. RESPECT - One of the most important words in Martial Arts is RESPECT. Students are taught to respect their instructors, each other, and themselves. Our instructors spend time in class discussing the importance of respecting school teachers and parents. Respect is often missing in many facets of today’s society. This is what separates Inspired Martial Arts Programs from other sports. A child’s social behaviour should be directly linked to his or her progression in the martial arts class. It’s not just about winning; our Programs are about personal growth and becoming a better person.

7. DISCIPLINE, BEHAVIOUR AND SCHOOL - We have a lot of FUN at Inspired Martial Arts, but instructors will not tolerate excessive talking or goofing around in the school. Improved behaviour in a Martial Arts class often translates into improved behaviour at school. Improved behaviour at school often translates into improved grades. We require behaviour reports from the parents to make sure that the student is focused in the classroom and at home… Not just at the Dojo. We want to make sure that our students are working on their Martial Arts technique, improving their behaviour at home, as well as improving their grades at school. We teach a very effective form of self-defence and want to make sure that the right kids are learning it.

8. GREAT PHYSICAL FITNESS - Did you know that childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 25 years? The first step to preventing childhood obesity is addressing the problem before it occurs. If you catch obesity early on, there are ways to prevent your child from developing further health risks. If your child is already overweight, it is essential to understand the psychological effects obesity has on children that are potentially more damaging than the physical side effects. Inspired Martial Arts is dedicated to empowering your child with self-confidence while rewarding them with achievement. For children with low self-esteem issues, Martial Arts instil confidence and self-discipline while providing engaging physical activity. The stamina and endurance children develop during Martial Arts training in our programs, result in natural weight loss and an improvement in overall physical and mental health.

9. ANTI-BULLYING CONFIDENCE BUILDING - Bullying is defined as unwanted, aggressive behaviour that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. Kids who bully use their power – such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity – to control or harm others. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumours, attacking someone physically or verbally and purposely excluding someone from a group. Both kids who are bullied and who bully others may experience serious, lasting problems. Our anti-bullying approach is designed to redirect unwanted attention and manage assertiveness without causing more harm. Students are taught to manage situations without the use of violence, learning ways to assess threats, redirect verbal assaults and use their surroundings, all of which are critical factors in removing the power of the bully.

10. PERSONAL ATTENTION - At Inspired Martial Arts, we know the impact a good instructor can have on a student. Our highly qualified Instructors are experienced, patient, enthusiastic, and teach with a perfect blend of discipline and fun. With Instructors active on the floor during any given class, every student receives the personal attention they deserve.

11. SOCIAL SKILLS AND FRIENDSHIP - Making friends is an important part of childhood. At Inspired Martial Arts, we provide the positive atmosphere and family oriented activities necessary to help young children make new friends, while teaching them the concepts of sharing, compassion, and conflict resolution

12. HAVING FUN - We learned a long time ago that kids learn faster when they are having fun. Keeping children interested in their Martial Arts training requires an element of fun and games. Traditionalists are usually only concerned with the discipline and structure of their training, but incorporating fun involving proper techniques will add to the value of training and keep the kids hungry to improve themselves even more.

THAT’S NOT ALL… In addition to our regular classes we host NUMEROUS EVENTS for our students including fun days, life proof programs, nerf gun wars, holiday training camps and children’s birthday parties. At the Inspired Martial Arts, our children have a great time meeting new friends while developing character and learning life-changing martial arts skills. Our Parents can have fun with a staff and organization they can trust.
