The Importance of Kids Learning
Martial Arts from an Early Age

For people new to the martial arts, the benefits of martial arts training might not be obvious. Some will think, sure, it's a great workout--just look at that "Tae Bo" guy. And of course it's good for self-defense, with all that punching and kicking.

But the benefits of martial arts training, especially for children and teenagers, are much more than simple physical improvements. Martial arts benefits span a spectrum of physical, mental, and social attributes, all of which are learned and improved through martial arts training.

Physical benefits include the following:

  • Physical fitness
  • Personal security

Mental benefits include the following:

  • Learning abilities
  • Goal setting
  • Discipline

Social benefits include the following:

  • Discipline
  • Self-esteem
  • Respect
  • Calming

We'll cover each of these attributes--benefits of martial arts training--in this article. We'll also discuss special benefits for girls, which make martial arts training for young ladies even more important.

Naturally, these benefits also apply to most adults as well. However, developing these attributes early in life contributes to a healthy, happy adulthood. That's why it's even more important to get those kids kicking.
