3 reasons why martial arts make great enrichment classes
Singapore is a wonderful place to raise your kids. But as your little one starts to grow up and begins to require more attention, parents turn to enrichment classes for assistance.
Martial arts is a great way for your child to have a physical outlet to vent all that extra energy. But more importantly, your child will also learn valuable life skills along the way.
This is probably the most obvious benefit, but definitely deserves top mention. Martial arts like Taekwondo or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provide structured programs at every belt level to train motor skills, strength and flexibility. Control of one’s strength and increased self-confidence are also huge pluses when advancing in martial arts under trained professionals.
Mental acuity & discipline
Martial arts, unlike gym routines, often require thinking and strategizing. Self-awareness and body control viz-a-viz an opponent makes this form of enrichment class a ‘live’ activity that is constantly evolving and changing as techniques develop amongst competitors and more advanced practitioners. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu in particular, tends to evolve more frequently, due to it’s close links to Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Discipline is also an aspect of development that gets plenty of attention in martial arts academies and schools, as many parents would attest to.
Martial arts as a way of life
Interest in hobbies taken up in one’s youth, tend to take on a life of their own as a child grows up. Having martial arts as a hobby ensures a degree of healthy living and also fosters important character traits that lead to success in adulthood.
