When parents who have little knowledge of martial arts first consider enrolling their children in a dojo, or martial arts training facility, they have a lot of questions. This post and the ones to come will address some of those questions and help parents feel more comfortable about getting their kids started in the martial arts.
One of the goals parents often have for enrolling their kids in martial arts training is to help them develop self-discipline. Martial arts training is an excellent way to foster self-discipline. In fact, this is one of the central aspects of martial arts. This continual focus on self-discipline is seldom found in other activities for children. The emphasis placed on instant gratification today makes the learning of self-discipline harder for your children.
Increasing self-esteem is another central focus of parents who are considering enrolling their kids in martial arts training. This is also a consistent goal of martial arts training. Learning the forms, moves, and getting proficient in them promotes increased confidence in self and increased self-esteem.
Learning respect is a goal both of parents and the martial arts in general. Respect begins with the bow to the instructor at the start of every lesson. This respect is always required. Kids learn to respect those who are senior to them in any way.
Many parents today are also concerned about bullying. They want their children to be safe from bullies. Martial arts training will help your child learn self-defense moves, but more important, it teaches them to avoid confrontations. Resolving conflicts through non-violent means is emphasized. Also, as your child learns more about the martial arts, he or she becomes more confident. This confidence manifests itself in other places than the dojo. Feeling confident will keep your child from becoming the target of bullies. Most of the time, bullies seek out those who are less self-confident as their targets.
