5 Major Benefits of Martial Arts for Differently-Abled Children
Key Learning Points: Martial arts focuses on the body and the mind equally It helps all children learn respect, self-control, and focus. The feeling your child gets from training is more important than the type and technique of martial arts they are performing. Between school and homework, kids spend the majority of their day sitting at a desk for studies. That’s why extracurricular activities that allow them to release their energy are important.
The Bushi Ban “Why”
Martial arts training is a great opportunity for all kids to build positive self-esteem and find community, and acceptance in a safe environment. Becoming a Bushi Ban student is like coming home because for many Bushi Ban students, martial arts becomes a way of life and offers an extended family atmosphere. Even parents find new and healthy connections with other like-minded adults. It’s a winning combination for families.
We’d love to introduce your child to the Bushi Ban Blackbelt Mindset. Starting at age 3, our youngest students, “Little Warriors” have the opportunity to begin a path to health, discipline and learning in positive reinforcement and accepting of those who have differently-abled physical or mental challenges. From there, by age group, your child progresses to the next levels of training until they join our advanced classes later in their journey.
The Importance of Training the Core for Adults and Teens
Onnit describes the need for a strong core in martial arts as, “Understand [the core’s] importance in increasing explosive power, improving overall strength, maximizing mobility, reducing stress on the body, and minimizing your injuries.” Having a strong and stable core is important in all athletic pursuits and the martial arts is no different. Everything begins and ends with the core. That includes punches, kicks, throws, grappling, clinching, takedowns and everything in between.
