Martial Arts For Toddlers – Why Is It Best For Them?

martial arts for toddlers

Toddlers are indeed a handful, and to deal with defiance and power struggles on a daily basis can be tough. As adults, our job is to help them handle their emotions and the way they react given certain circumstances. Truly, a toddler’s behavioral development can be hard to keep up with. But did you know that the constant meltdowns on grocery stores and the endless tantrums at home can be avoided if we invest in our child’s life success?

Martial arts, of any kind, offers the benefit of providing a clear, predictable, uncomplicated foundation for an individual, especially for toddlers.

Many parents I know have opted to put their children into karate classes for kids as a positive activity for their personal growth and development. The bow ins and outs and the warm ups are great frameworks when teaching karate for toddlers.

How long can toddlers learn the important life skills instilled in martial arts lessons?

Kids learn martial arts in different ways and at different paces.  Some students are fast learners and pick up the technique the first time you show it to them, while other students might require you to explain it several times before they understand. Some students will learn more visually – when you show them the move, they learn techniques better. Other students pick it up right away after you give them the instructions.

People differ on how they process information. And there is no time frame as to when and how long should teaching karate for toddlers take for a child to manifest the morals of this martial arts lessons.

Although, it is important to note that giving praise and recognition are the most effective ways to get toddlers to respond in kids karate challenges. You’ll never know how a pat on the back, an emphatic high-five or a loud cheer can impact your child’s behaviour and help them make you – their parents – proud.

Does teaching karate for toddlers make them violent?

There are many lifelong benefits for every person training combat sports. But some parents are worried that martial arts lessons  are not a suitable sport for children.

Parents worry what karate lessons can do to their kids. Many wonder if perhaps teaching karate for toddlers will encourage violence in the playground.

This is a myth that has been debunked a number of times already.  The truth is karate promotes the exact opposite of violence.

Enrolling them in karate classes for kids will not cause aggression. Martial arts lessons are about learning self-control, discipline, respect and perseverance. In fact, our karate for toddlers classes are perfect in dealing with aggressive children and school bullies. This gives kids a chance to burn off their pent up energies. Hence, toddler karate classes can also be a venue to reinforce respect and discipline.

Our karate for toddlers classes can also benefit most passive and shy children who need some push in gaining their self-confidence and self-respect.

Although, karate classes may not guarantee that your child will never get bullied or will never be a bully just like playing basketball cannot guarantee your child will play for the NBA. But the fact remains that the more self-esteem your child has, the more likely they are to develop a strong character and make better decisions in their day to day life.
