Teen Martial Arts
Q: Can teens get injured with Martial Arts?
A: As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that teens can get injured doing just about anything. Martial Arts is no different; however, we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do happen sometimes. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special warm-up exercises and stretches to make sure their body is limber and flexible.
Q: Are these Martial Arts classes fun?
A: You bet they are! We're dealing with teens here and if it's not fun, they won't want any part of it. We do a variety of fun drills and activities that challenge students and keep them interested and smiling with pride. We work hard here, but we also play hard.
Q: Do boys and girls take Martial Arts?
A: Yes - we have a good mix of both girls and boys in our classes, as it promotes gender equality. Martial arts give boys and girls the means to develop focus, confidence, high self-esteem and respect for self and others, which is so important in their teenage years. Martial arts also give teens a safe and comfortable place to interact with the opposite sex and develop friendships.
Q: Will my teen's confidence & self-esteem grow with Martial Arts?
A: Absolutely! Teens with low self-esteem often come out of their shells. As their skill level increases, they feel more and more confident. Other teens look up to them like your teen looks up to other students who are ahead of them. It builds a sense of confidence, pride, and teamwork.
