KARATE BENEFITS FOR KIDS
To be self-confident is to trust in yourself and your abilities.
When you are giving a presentation or a speech, is very important to be self-confident.
Confidence is a feeling of trust in someone or something. To be self-confident is to have confidence in yourself. Self-confident people don’t doubt themselves. This is usually a positive word: you can be self-confident without being cocky, arrogant, or overconfident.
If you know what you’re doing, you have every reason to be self-confident.
Why Self-Esteem Matters
According to KidsHealth.org when children feel good about themselves, it sets them up for success — in everything from school to friendships Positive feelings like self-acceptance or self-confidence help kids try new challenges, cope with mistakes, and try again. Taking pride in their abilities and accomplishments helps kids do their best.
By contrast, kids with low self-esteem might feel unsure of themselves. If they think others won’t accept them, they may not participate as often.
They may allow themselves to be treated poorly and have a hard time standing up for themselves. Kids who don’t expect to do well may avoid challenges, give up easily, or be unable to bounce back from mistakes.
Having low self-esteem can block success. It can leave kids distracted by the stress of how to deal with everyday challenges.
Get your kid active.
One of the most important benefits of Karate for kids is that it includes a…
.. physical activity component.
Not only will your child move around a lot, but they’ll also build on their strength, coordination, and flexibility.
Work on Goal-Setting and Self-improvement
Karate has a reward system to encourage student effort and consistency. Belts of different colors are awarded according to technical proficiency, rewarding students for their practice and mastery of skills.
Focusing on a goal such as achieving a new rank or belt is a great way to learn about goal-setting and motivation.
Learn Respect and Listening Skills.
Respecting your Sensei and your classmates is an important part of Karate.
Children will need to listen to and follow instructions to learn new moves and skills.
Get Physical in a Safe Environment.
If you have a child who likes to punch, kick,roll or wrestle, Karate offers a safe
environment in which to do it. Children learn how to punch bags, how to land safely if they fall backward and how to block someone else’s punches or kicks. It’s much safer than practicing on their siblings or on the lounge room floor!
Encourage Teamwork and Belonging.
While Karate is typically done individually, teamwork is still a vital part of practice. Working in pairs is often used to teach sparring or to work on moves.
Being part of a Dojo also creates a sense of belonging and creates lifelong friendships.
MAYA KARATE ACADEMY
Started with Sensei Genaro Maya’s vision. He started practicing Karate-Do in November 1970. Two years later he started teaching karate as a Sempai, advanced student, in his Sensei’s dojo.
“Karate became part of my life; my love and my passion for Karate led me to start my own dojo in 1973. I wanted to share my discipline and its benefits with more people. My Dojo in Mexico had 300 students. Today our organization has more than 30 dojos.
About fifteen years ago the Australian Karate Federation
