Teen Martial Arts
Q: Will Martial Arts make my teen aggressive or violent?
A: Not at all! In fact, martial arts makes teens calmer, happier, peaceful, more respectful and accepting of themselves and others. Martial arts has always been about peace, and it always will be.
Q: Do boys and girls take Martial Arts?
A: Yes - we have a good mix of both girls and boys in our classes, as it promotes gender equality. Martial arts give boys and girls the means to develop focus, confidence, high self-esteem and respect for self and others, which is so important in their teenage years. Martial arts also give teens a safe and comfortable place to interact with the opposite sex and develop friendships.
Q: Will my teen's confidence & self-esteem grow with Martial Arts?
A: Absolutely! Teens with low self-esteem often come out of their shells. As their skill level increases, they feel more and more confident. Other teens look up to them like your teen looks up to other students who are ahead of them. It builds a sense of confidence, pride, and teamwork.
Q: Can teens get injured with Martial Arts?
A: As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that teens can get injured doing just about anything. Martial Arts is no different; however, we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do happen sometimes. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special warm-up exercises to make sure their body is limber and flexible.
