There are so many positives that come with taking Martial Arts classes for kids. Not only are our clubs fun, sociable and a great way to burn off your child’s excess energy with other kids their own age, but they also have some life-changing, long term benefits, too.
Not just another activity for your child...
At GPC MMA, we understand how important your child’s personal development is, and our highly trained and experienced instructors, running our kids classes, are here to support your child at every step of their Martial Arts journey.
Here are some of the many benefits your child can gain and develop from GPC MMA training:
Getting a child to do what they are told can be challenging enough, and our program will develop respectful disciplined kids, but more important is getting a child to do what they are not told. Developing self discipline in children so they have the knowledge to know what they should do, and they do it! This trait will be invaluable as they grow into successful teens and adults.
A confidence child is a happy child. They no longer live in anxiety or fear. Confidence is the first step to get a child to succeed at all areas of life. Once confidence is developed, the instructors at our classes can now begin getting a child to perform at a level that was once un-thought of for them.
INCREASED CONCENTRATION & FOCUS
Children will begin by keeping their eyes focus on the eyes of people speaking to them. They will begin paying more attention to their teachers and for longer periods of time, therefore hearing and learning more. Focus is like a muscle, the more you use it, the better and stronger it gets. With martial arts training at QKD Martial Arts we train children muscles and mind.
SELF DEFENCE/DEAL WITH THE SCHOOL BULLY/STRANGER DANGER
GPC MMA teaches children easy to learn yet effective self defence techniques. These techniques when practiced safely in class, help to improve a child’s balance, coordination, strength and overall health and fitness. We hope the techniques are never needed in the ‘real’ world! We also teach stranger danger and anti-bully techniques and strategies so that each child knows what to do if faced with a difficult situation.
