Benefits of karate for children
Karate can be challenging. A child’s confidence soars when they when they reach a new level. It gives them a sense of accomplishment that is vital for their self-esteem.
Karate demands high levels of mutual respect. From the minute a child walks into a dojo (hall), they must follow strict social etiquette which is constantly reenforced.
Listening and concentration skills are put to the test when it comes to learning karate. Skills that transfer to the classroom.
Goal-Setting and Self-Improvement
Focusing on achieving a new grade or belt is a great way to learn about goal-setting and motivation.
Balance + Posture
A lot of time is spent working on their balance and posture to create effective techniques. Achieving good balance at an early age will give a child a healthy posture later in life.
Seeing a challenge through to its conclusion requires concentration, an understanding of their weaknesses and what motivates them to accomplish a set target. Finally, they’ll learn to follow a set of rules, which can only benefit them in the classroom.
The repetition in karate will teach a child how to move, and where they should position themselves. With greater coordination comes greater confidence in your physical ability.
Speed, stamina, core strength and flexibility are all developed through karate.
