Flying karate sidekicks, judo breaking boards or even MMA sparring can strike concern for many parents.
But the discipline and focus required to advance in martial arts training can yield many benefits for many kids in everyday life. There’s a lot of evidence of the benefits kids can get from studying martial arts: Discipline, respect and concentration, along with better strength, endurance and balance, just to start. But science is beginning to document these benefits and more, including improved resiliency and reduced symptoms of autism.
Researchers found that the martial arts intervention had a significant effect on the subjects overall resilience and on their academic, social and emotional self-efficacy improving their ability to cope with the effects of bullying. And though the goal is to avoid situations where a child needs to use self-defense tactics, taking a martial art gives your children the tools to defend themselves or others, if necessary.
