There are several reasons why our students benefit the most by being part of our MMA program and why its good for children in general:
Developing Martial Arts values
While children do develop these values as a result of consistent martial arts training, it isn’t necessary for them to start with an understanding of what these values are or the techniques used to develop them. At American Karate Institute because of our organized, well thought-out curriculum and the fact that our classes are so much fun, students often don’t realize that they are gaining these great core values.
There are three key ingredients to an optimal exercise program: cardiovascular endurance, strength conditioning, and flexibility. The beauty of martial arts is that it incorporates a balance between all three components of fitness. A proper balance between these three key pieces also helps in preventing injuries whether practicing martial arts, or any other sport for that matter. It’s no surprise why many professional teams incorporate martial arts training into their programs. Physical fitness is vital for any child, and our students at the American Karate Institute are being challenged physically every class.
Most parents enroll their child in our school is to lern self-defense. Whether being bullied or protecting a friend, martial arts training helps students to be prepared for possible confrontations and using the skills they’ve been taught as a means of defending themselves, not as a form of aggression. As students gain confidence in their abilities, there tends to be less of a need for them to defend themselves due to the composure and restraint they learn from continuous martial arts training. At AKI, we've been the #1 self defense school in Miami/Kendall for over 35 years.
To achieve even the smallest of goals, and to get through life's daily duties and responsibilities, you have to have self-confidence. We make it a priority at our school to help all of our students have self-confidence. The importance of developing a self-confident attitude allows you to power through the push and pull of different voices and opinions telling you, "yes, no, maybe, do this, do that", etc. Relying on other people to guide you and following their opinions robs you of your individuality, makes you unsure of yourself and can lead to depression.
