Youth Martial Arts

Teaches Self-Defense

The Martial Arts provide a lot of benefits, but there’s one that stands apart from all the others – self-defense. Bullying continues to plague the lives of young people. reports that across the United States, approximately 20% of students between the ages of 12 and 18 have been bullied at some point in their lifetime. At Green Dragon Dojo, we want to help students learn how to avoid dangerous situations, de-escalate altercations, and protect themselves from attackers. If you aren’t sure whether or not to enroll your child in Martial Arts, the sport’s self-defense lessons are reason enough.

Improves Health

Lack of childhood health is a growing issue all around the world but is especially prevalent in the United States. One of the biggest challenges? Getting kids active. As they have greater access to technology, children are spending more and more time in front of a screen and less and less time participating in physical activities. If you’re encountering this issue in your child’s life, Martial Arts may just be the solution you’re seeking. Not only do the Martial Arts reduce stress, but they provide benefits to one’s cardiovascular health, stamina, flexibility, strength, reflexes, and weight management.

Builds Self-Confidence

The health benefits of the Martial Arts go far beyond the body – this sport is good for the brain too! Exercise releases endorphins, also known as happy chemicals. But Martial Arts takes this a step further, building confidence in its students. Many of our students begin their journey with us as shy individuals who are highly insecure in themselves. But with every class they take, they grow in ability and confidence. The Martial Arts push students to do things they previously thought they were incapable of – ultimately helping young people set goals for themselves and achieve them. This newfound sense of confidence helps our students stand up for themselves, empowers them to ask questions and excel in school, and improves their ability to make friends.

Promotes Important Values

Your child probably has a lot of different options when it comes to their next sport. So, why Martial Arts? Well, we have something all those other activities don’t – our values. Since the Martial Arts are founded on traditions of respect, discipline, hard work, patience, and confidence, it’s no surprise that this sport is known for the life lessons it instills in its students. Your child may not become a professional Martial Artist, but the principles they learn in the dojo will carry over to all areas of their life – from school, to the workplace, to their friendships and relationships. Enroll your child at Green Dragon Dojo today and give them the gift that keeps on giving.
