What Are the Benefits of Martial Arts for Children & Youth?
At #TUFFCORE Muay Thai & Kickboxing Academy in #Oxford, we believe that a child’s total well being, both psychological and physical, can be strengthened simultaneously. While the physical aspects of exercise and #MartialArts training improve your child’s general health, it likewise improves emotional health with increased self-esteem 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:
Fitness & Wellness - Fitness is a crucial element to all martial arts classes, especially where children are involved. Warm ups with jumping jacks, push ups and stretches are common, and the movements of the martial art itself often challenge your muscles and cardiovascular system. Martial artists are known for being toned, flexible and physically fit, and your child will be no different. Our objective is to show our students how it's important for children to understand the importance of being healthy and physically fit at an early age.
Self Defense - The ability to defend themselves against an assailant is an empowering feeling. Here is why at #TUFFCORE Martial Arts Academy we use self defense as a cornerstone of the entire program. The precise methods will vary from discipline to discipline, but you can be certain that with regular practice, your child will learn to defend himself/herself in a variety of different ways. Based on high standards we also implement teaching street-smart techniques to kids to help avoid problems altogether.
Self Discipline - Our #TUFFCORE Martial Arts Academy help instill mental focus in your child, giving them the ability to concentrate on a task and see it through to its conclusion. The discipline that is taught in the academy in regard to uniforms, customs and techniques often translates into other areas of life, including school and household chores. As we are a team, we require each children to participate and develop their #Leadership skills within any group exercise or pair.
Respect & Self-Control - #TUFFCORE Martial Arts Academy is all about respect. Punching, kicking, throwing and locking are all secondary to the respect that is shown form the moment you walk into our #Academy. Children learn to bow to the coaches who came before them, and to their current instructors as their team friends - all in respectful manner. They also learn to treat other students as they wish to be treated. Our quality instructors press upon the respect issue regularly and instruct students to practice respect for self, parents, teachers and peers at every opportunity.
Self Confidence - A child who is involved in martial arts is generally a child who is confident in themselves. Working through a martial art and the level ranking system gives a child measurable goals to follow that are realistic to attain. The sense of accomplishment a child feels by mastering a new technique or graduating to a new level follows them everywhere they go. We are here to make sure they build strong relationship with coaches as well as the rest of the students and together we can create better and safer #Community for us all.
