Martial arts benefits span a spectrum of physical, mental, and social attributes, all of which are learned and improved through martial arts training. Children learn about courtesy, loyalty, respect, perseverance, maintaining a positive attitude, self-control, and integrity. These skills will be taught and reinforced at our martial arts school. Children will be able to utilize all of these skills throughout their lifetime.

Physical Fitness

The benefits of physical fitness for kids are well-documented. According to the American Council on Exercise, physically active children have fewer chronic health problems than kids who are sedentary. Martial arts classes exercise all joints and muscle groups. Regular training causes incremental improvements in fitness.

Personal Security

Kids who are preyed upon by bullies, or reside in neighborhoods where street violence is common, have a greater peace of mind if they have the ability to defend themselves. In almost all cases, they never have to use their martial arts techniques on someone. Their increased awareness and presence deters violence. In effect, by understanding and mastering a higher level of the force continuum, they can acheive their goals by using lesser levels of force.


The regimented nature of martial arts instruction fosters a deep sense of self-discipline in students. One can’t become a legitimate black belt overnight, and so students learn that their worthy goals will require patience, hard work, and dedicated study over several years. The message is that if it’s worth anything, it’s worth working hard for.


Self-esteem is largely based on a student’s self-worth; if students feel capable, able, and confident, then they enjoy a healthy self-esteem. Martial arts training builds self-esteem by providing small challenges that build incremental successes. Students learn that they can overcome the challenges as they improve in their training.
