Self Defence and Martial Arts: 5 Reasons Why Its Best For Your Kids

Self Defence

Promoting Life Enrichment Skills Through Focus Martial Arts Brisbane Self Defence Classes.

We understand the importance of our Brisbane self defence classes to provide a nurturing –safe-fun and energetic atmosphere that enables a child to learn lifelong skills that will help them navigate their way confidently through school and beyond whilst they learn to protect themselves from harm by means of self defence techniques.

Brisbane self defence classes at Focus Martial Arts will provide great enjoyment in a sociable friendly and fun environment so that your child will feel comfortable as they make new friends.  As it is important to develop a passion for learning, we will provide challenges to motivate and stimulate their learning core because if kids don’t enjoy it, they won’t stick to it and won’t learn.

What’s great too, is helping them gain confidence through a sense of achievement whilst introducing them to the joy of sport.

Personal Security Through Our Brisbane Self Defence & Martial arts.

In the same way that an adult can feel insecure in walking down a street at night, a child can feel vulnerable to peer pressure. The self discipline that our students develop resulting from our training, will provide your child with the skills and mindset necessary to resist peer pressure and also alleviates the problems of bullying.

These are some of the lessons we feel every child would benefit from.
