Why Martial Arts Classes Build So Much Confidence
Many parents today are concerned about their child’s confidence level – and for good reason! Confidence is a critical character quality that all of us need to have to be successful in life.
Life is full of challenges. And people who don’t feel confident about themselves are reluctant to take those challenges. And being afraid to take challenges in life leads to stagnation.
The good news is that you can teach your child to have UNSTOPPABLE CONFIDENCE early on, and there is no better way to do that than with martial arts training.
There are two main reasons why martial arts training builds so much confidence in kids:
- Learning Physical Self-Defense Skills: Learning how to physically protect yourself develops a ton of confidence that spills over into all aspects of a person’s life. There’s just something about training to physically defend yourself that builds unstoppable confidence like nothing else can.This is especially true if your child goes on to do well in jiu jitsu competition!
- The Jiu Jitsu Belt System: The second reason lies in our belt system. Confidence is built in small bite-sized chunks. Being awarded, over and over, on many small achievements as one scales the ladder to black belt really changes how a child thinks about themselves! Every new belt color and every new stripe they get on their belt is a “little victory”. And when you built up so many little victories over time the child begins to feel like they can conquer anything! So these tangible markers of success, accumulating over time, is a great help to a child’s confidence!
After training for a while in martial arts, a child starts to walk more upright – projecting an image of self-reliance. Shoulders back, chin up, a feelin’ good. People who know how to take care of themselves don’t walk around like victims.
We know that by the end of the first class, your child will be approaching the world with a new feeling of confidence. We will continue to help build that self-confidence in your kid at a rapid pace.
