Remember how I mentioned above that Martial arts
is perhaps one of the two best things
that you will ever do for your child?
This is what I mean! Do you know how to swim? How old were you when you first learned how to swim? If you fell into a pool of water today, would you be able to swim to safety? (provided you answered yes above, and knew how to swim).
Just like learning how to swim or riding a bike, once you learn martial arts, it's yours forever...so are all the benefits that your child will receive. Confidence, esteem, the ability to protect themselves, standing up to negative peer pressure, are just some of the qualities and benefits that the martial arts are known and legendary for.
In addition, I feel that if everyone on the planet would and could practice martial arts at least for one year, the world would be a better place. Why? Because, above everything else, martial arts is about respect. That's something that we all could use.
