Are you dealing with
You’re struggling to find something to do with your kids that appeals to you, too.
Your kids spend too much time inside and not enough outside getting exercise.
You worry that your kids lack self-esteem and want to improve your self-esteem, too.
A lot of parents struggle to find family-friendly activities to do with their children.
They also worry that their kids don’t understand the importance of exercise and wonder if that’s because as parents, they don’t make time to work out in their own lives.
There aren’t many workouts that can be shared by adults and children. Cheering from the sidelines isn’t the same as doing something together.
Results and growth with every class!
Family martial arts classes offer families a way to spend quality time together and get their exercise, too. Everyone in the family learns at an appropriate level, but you’ll be learning the same basic skills. That means you can cheer one another on while also burning calories, relieving stress, and learning valuable lessons that apply to all areas of life.
Make Exercise a Family Priority
When you have a busy life that includes children, it can be hard to make time in your schedule for working out. Yet, as a parent, you know that the example you set is something that will influence your kids throughout their lives.
Family martial arts classes offer you the opportunity to kill two birds with stone. By attending classes with your kids, you’ll be showing them that you value fitness and exercise.
At the same time, you’ll be giving your kids a chance to let loose and have some fun. They won’t even be thinking about the fact that they’re exercising – and before you know it, exercise will be a habit for them and you.
Age-Appropriate Fun for Kids and Adults Alike
If your kids are even a few years apart in age, it can be impossible to find something they all want to do. Even choosing a movie or television show to watch requires boatloads of patience and diplomacy. Yet, family time is important.
One of the biggest benefits of studying the martial arts as a family is that it’s fun for everybody, kids and adults alike. Kicking, punching, and breaking boards are enjoyable activities at any age.
You might think of martial arts as an individual pursuit, but families who take classes together cheer each other on. The memories you build in class will last a lifetime!
Learning Discipline and Self-Control Can Help the Whole Family
Sometimes, getting your kids to play together can be a battle. The constant bickering is enough to wear any parent down.
At the same time, you may struggle with discipline and self-control in your life too. Studying the martial arts is great for your body, but it’s also good for your brain. As you work out, you and your kids will learn the five tenets of martial arts: courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit.
While you might learn about perseverance and self-control on the mat, the lessons don’t end there. Your kids will bring what they learn to school with them, you’ll bring it to work, and the entire family will bring it home.
Kids and Parents Improve Their Self-Esteem
Self-esteem plays an important role in how we move through life. A child who has good self-esteem is likely to perform well in school, to form healthy relationships, and to be successful in life.
Of course, a parent’s self-esteem has a direct impact on their kids. One of the most important benefits of studying the martial arts is that it teaches people of all ages to rely on themselves and their abilities.
The whole family can benefit from learning about self-reliance and confidence. Once you know your own worth – and your kids know theirs – the whole family will have a newfound positivity that will strengthen your relationships.
Our children started the program first back in July and my wife and I subsequently began taking classes in late August....what a positive impact it has had on our health and well-being! Our son and daughter are learning far more than a martial art rich in history and traditions... they are learning skills that they use each and every day. My wife and I have become healthier in mind, body, and spirit. The camaraderie with our fellow students is a bond that is as strong as community and those relationships transcend the studio.
The benefits in health and happiness alone are worth giving Life Skills Martial Arts a try.
Millbury Martial Arts kicks butt! They have a great group of people there, with an awesome school culture. It's a really fun place to learn martial arts at any level, and improve your skillz!
Millbury martial arts has significantly impacted my life for more then 20 years. As a child I was shy and had low self esteem. Through the training at Millbury martial arts, I became a strong self confident person who is able to pursue my dream of a graduate degree.
Our 4 year old has been attending for 9 months now and he has a blast! What we love the most is the positive atmosphere. There is not a competition with anyone but yourself. Parents cheer on each other’s children and the students of the class encourage and support one another. It is a beautiful thing and we are so happy our son is a part of it! The instructors are very supportive and the life skills that they teach are fantastic. Our son has gained more confidence and has so much fun. We are very happy we chose Life Skills Martial Arts for our son and highly recommend it!
