Can Teaching Kids Punching Improve Focus?
Today, I’d like to shift my focus and talk about the mental benefits of martial arts, starting with – you guessed it – Focus.
You know that our Childhood Development Programs provide students with a fun and intense cardiovascular workout. What you may not know is that they’re also good for our brains. You see, mastering the martial arts requires us to build a strong connection between our body and mind.
That’s because being a skilled martial artist isn’t about brute strength. If you want to break a board with your hand, you must focus on the task at hand. That means training your brain not to be distracted by the worries and anxieties of everyday life.
The focus that kids learn in a martial arts class doesn’t stay in the academy when they leave. It follows them wherever they go throughout their whole life. That means it can help you at work or in school, if you’re taking classes. It can also help you focus on your family and friends.
We often hear from our students that they feel their ability to work or study efficiently has improved since when they started taking a class with us. They’ve even told us that their classmates, and coworkers have noticed a difference – and often, that translates to concrete rewards like great grades, scholarships, raises, promotions, and bonuses!
Focus is an important skill to cultivate, and our instructors give adult students the tools they need to learn how to focus on tasks and goals and see them through.
