Are you afraid that your daughter will grow up being less feminine just because she is learning Martial Arts?
Well continue reading and let us ease your mind:
Activities such as Karate, Kung Fu, Judo, Aikido, etc. are a fun way for both boys and GIRLS to achieve fitness and focus. Some parents may think they also promote violence, but that’s just a myth, according to experts. The Martial Arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In this age of technology and electronics, children are spending longer hours playing video game and browsing the internet and less time for exercise and therefore there would be an increase in unfit and overweight children and while there are many benefits in the technology and internet there are more benefits in stillness and silence. At some juncture in life, every one of us comes to learn that the greatest obstacle we face in this life time is ourselves. That battle is fought in the stillness of our hearts and the willingness to confront ourselves. As a martial artist your child will learn how to be still, challenged and focused.
There are a tremendous number of benefits for girls who get involved in fitness and martial arts including:
- Strengthening and toning core muscles.
- It will boost a girl’s self-confidence in the world around her, It is important for a girl to know that she will be able to defend herself if the need arises.
- It helps to relieve stress and improve concentration.
- Routines of Martial Arts help improve the reflexes and help keep a girl’s memory sharp.
By sending your child to Martial Arts lessons you will invest in your child’s health and fitness in long term which will also benefit them in school and studies.
It’s important that your daughter is at the height of her abilities, mentally and physically. Martial arts can provide the fine tuning that is needed to be successful in the world.
Martial arts can teach your little girl that in order to get respect, you must give respect. It’s a mutual process in the dojo just as much as it is in life. Self-respect can also be a challenge, but for these young girls enrolled in a martial arts program, self-respect is strength of character. And strength of character in girls is just as important—if not more so—than physical strength.
In addition to all that has been mentioned above, there’s a certain confidence a parent feels when knowing his or her daughter can defend herself.
Good self-defense does not require muscle. It requires that you find your inner will to live when the situation looks dire. It requires you to increase your awareness. It requires that you work on stability and that you understand that you frequently need to adapt.
