Why Kids & Parents Should Attend Martial Arts Classes Together

December 10, 2016

 

If you think that martial arts classes are just for kids, think again. Taking a parent-child, or family, martial arts class with your kid has tons benefits that can help you to bond with your child and better understand what he or she is learning. At American Karate Institute, we pride ourselves in being able to serve both kids and parents and we believe we have the best program, institute & atmosphere to make that happen.

 

 

Here are the 3 reasons why you kids & parents should attend a Martial Arts class together:

 

 

Physical Benefits

 

If you don't have time to hit the gym or don't want to pay the extra money to hire a babysitter just so you can get a quick workout in, joining a martial arts class with your child is a creative solution to finding time to exercise. The physical benefits of martial arts include increased strength, better coordination and flexibility. Self-confidence and improved ability to focus are other benefits, says Healthy Children. While you might initially sign your child up for a martial arts class to make sure that he gets these benefits, joining in yourself can have a profound effect on your own physical health as well.

 

 

Parent-Child Bonding

 

What better way to show your little one just how involved you are in his martial arts class than joining in? Doing so gives you time to bond with your child, plus it shows him that you are interested in his hobby and allows you to spend time together. Additionally, joining in on the learning gives you the opportunity to take the training home, practicing together during non-class times. This can provide your child with an extra layer of encouragement and a feeling that you are part of her learning experience.

 

 

Safety

 

While no sport is completely safe for your child, some parents may wonder if the kicking and punching of a martial arts class makes this type of athletic endeavor more dangerous than others. Taking a family martial arts class with your child can help you to feel more secure in the safety measures that the school has in place to keep your little one from getting unnecessarily hurt. Additionally, you can keep an eye on your child and make sure that she is following safety measures adequately. Going to class and learning about the safety practices with your child can help to make sure that she is staying safe and that you feel comfortable with what she is doing.
