Martial Arts for Teenager Juniors Aged 13-17

What are a few benefits that martial arts can offer to a teenager?

The benefits of martial arts are numerous. Focus, self confidence, self control, self defence, concentration, just to name a few. To focus specifically on teenagers however, additional benefits from martial arts can be realized.

From a physical standpoint, the neurological connections made at this time in a person’s life are crucial. Teenagers are quickly growing into their bodies. At this point in their life, physical conditioning such as the martial arts is a great way to build the neurological connections between the brain and muscles for better coordination and balance that will be used the rest of their life. While this is true with any sport, martial arts has one advantage, it doesn’t have to be competitive. This leads to less frustration, less pressure, less injuries, and therefore a much more positive atmosphere which leads to greater success and longevity.

Another aspect to take into consideration aside from the physical is that of the mental strength that is built. Martial arts practitioners are placed in difficult and stressful situations periodically throughout their training yet are still expected to perform and think rationally.

Yet another benefit is that of building leadership qualities. Many practitioners begin teaching within a couple years of training with the understanding that teaching is an incredible way to learn and further one’s own skills, building one’s patience and understanding of the way others work and learn. Lastly, the respect, discipline, and goal setting demanded by the martial arts tends to flood into other facets of life creating an upstanding, respectable and successful adult.

Abduction Awareness

Every parent is keenly aware of the dangers of child abduction. The media swings into action each time a child goes missing for a few hours and rightly so. We can all remember occasions where the abduction of a child has led to tragedy yet we cannot keep our children with us all the time. The only answer is to equip your child with the skills and knowledge to protect them from potential abductors. In our schools we teach children how to recognise different approaches that abductors use to trick children away from their parents and the 3 keys that abductors need to set their plans into motion. We teach children strategies of escape, evasion and avoidance to ensure their safety. Armed with this knowledge reinforced through practice you can be as certain as is possible that your child has the knowledge they need to protect themselves from the real danger of abduction.
