What is the Best Martial Arts for Kids?
Which is the Best Martial Arts for Kids? All Martial Arts Instructors will tell you that they are the best. And, in truth they may be. However, the best martial arts club or style is just based on the opinion of the person saying it. And, of course they will say that wont they. No-one will be going to train at any Martial Arts club and say that someone else is better.
I always think that Martial Arts styles or clubs, is a bit like our Mum’s, everybody thinks that theirs is the best!
Parents looking for the best Martial Arts classes for their children need to consider much more than just the cost or the style of Martial Art.
Below, are some very important points for parents to consider. In particular, whether you choose East West Martial Arts in Northampton or any other Martial Arts School. www.EastWestMartialArts.org
How to Choose a Martial Arts School for my Children?
The best advice for Parents looking for the Best Martial Arts for Kids is this. You really need to consider much more than just the cost or the style of Martial Art for their children.
It’s not the style of the martial art you practice that’s important; it’s the instructor who can inspire, motivate and educate your children that’s important. Most importantly, these are the instructors who can teach very powerful and valuable lessons to your children.
This is because they have the ‘Power of Influence’ to transform their students Attitudes, Behaviour’s and Character. This is called the ABC‘s of Success in Life.
It’s also important to realise that there are ‘no bad’ martial arts’, just ‘poor instructors’.
Visiting a Martial Arts School
When visiting any prospective Martial Arts Schools you should observe a class in action. All good instructors will let you watch a training session, especially classes for children. And, if they don’t – the best advice is to look for another Martial Arts School for your children.
While watching a class, observe the interaction between the students and
instructors very carefully. The best children’s Martial Arts Classes will be full of students getting a fabulous quality of instruction in high energy classes. Additionally, they should be totally engaged, sweating, smiling and learning and grinning from ear to ear.
Most professional schools will offer Age-specific classes, which have been specially designed for the different age-groups they teach. Just like the School system in the U.K today. Namely, it does not combine 5 year old children in the same classes or subjects with 12 year-old children.
Examples of Age-specific Martial Arts Classes:
- Little Dragons for Ages 4-6. https://eastwestmartialarts.org/classes/little-dragons-karate
- Karate Kidz for Ages 7-14. https://eastwestmartialarts.org/classes/karate-kids
- Adults for Ages 15 years and above. https://eastwestmartialarts.org/classes/adults-karate
The children’s martial arts classes should be well structured, professional and well run. The classes should also be taught by experienced Black Belt instructors, who have been trained to work with children.
Children should emerge from their martial arts classes transformed and changed for the better. And their parents should be very happy with the results they are seeing.
Free Taster Lessons
All good Martial Arts schools will offer parents free taster lessons or free trial lessons for their children. This allows parents to make their minds up before deciding to enroll their child into martial arts lessons. Avoid any martial arts school that attempts to pressure you into joining before your child has had their first lesson.
Here, at East West Martial Arts in Northampton, we offer parents ‘two free taster lessons’ for their children to try our classes before deciding to become a member. However we have to warn you, the kids always want to come back.
