I KNOW MY CHILD WILL HAVE FUN, BUT HE HAS QUIT OTHER ACTIVITIES BEFORE. HOW CAN WE KEEP HIM FROM QUITTING?
The key to a child’s success in any activity is consistency, progress and parents. What we have found is that children don’t quit martial arts training, parents do! As long as a parent makes and keeps the commitment of making sure their child attends class twice per week, children will learn and excel in their training. Kids that training consistently, continue to progress in the martial arts and should no problem reaching the life changing goal of Black Belt.
IS MY CHILD TOO YOUNG FOR MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING?
At Premier Martial Arts we are experts at teaching martial arts. We have programs specially designed for ages 3 to 4, 5 to 7, 8 to 12, teens, and adults. Our instructors are trained to bring out the best in our student performance at any age.
WHAT ARE THE CHANCES THAT MY CHILD COULD GET HURT DOING MARTIAL ARTS?
Don’t worry it’s not like the cage fighting you see almost every night on TV! (But your child will learn to defend themselves.) Actually children have much greater chances of getting hurt playing football than participating in martial arts. In fact we have trained students for years that have never received a single injury. While injuries can and do occur very rarely, your child safety is our main concern. We use padded safety gear, abide by strict safety rules and regulation for instructors and students, use padded safety weapons, and even have high tech padded floors, all for the safety of our students.
WILL MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING MAKE MY CHILD AGGRESSIVE TO OTHERS?
NO WAY! As a matter of fact, we are careful to teach our students to use common sense before self defense. Kids are taught this from the first day of classes, to make smart decisions when it comes to self defense. They will know when it is the right time to use what we teach them.
MY CHILD HAS NEVER BEEN GOOD AT SPORTS, CAN HE DO THIS?
Every child has what it take to be good at martial arts because in martial arts they are not competing or comparing themselves with anyone. Martial arts are more than just punching and kicking. Character development training is just as important as punching and kicking. We are building Black Belt from the inside out. Once we develop a child’s confidence, they truly can then achieve anything they set their minds to.
IS MARTIAL ART TRAINING GOOD EXERCISE IF MY CHILD NEEDS TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Martial Arts is great exercise for kids. Martial arts training combined with a sensible diet can transform a child’s physic and overall health. And kids that feel good about themselves are children that develop strong confidence and self esteem, which will carry over in all aspect of their life in the future.
