Parents appreciate the improved fitness, attention, and good behavior that result from their preschoolers’ martial arts training. They like that the environment is positive, safe, and supervised by professionals. And they often make friends with other parents, as their children make friends with others their age. These relationships are often very beneficial for all involved, traveling outside the karate setting into home, school, and community for years to come.
Pre-schoolers not only have a blast portraying their favorite cartoon characters – Power Rangers™, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™, Ninjago™, and others – they grow stronger in body, mind, and spirit with regular practice. Most don’t even realize that the martial arts games they play, neat moves they practice, and fascinating stories they hear in class are helping them to be the best they can be. Karate pre-schoolers learn better and faster by “doing” more than by “watching,” so instructors keep them on their toes with activities that keep them working, while they just think they’re playing!
Pre-schoolers of all fitness levels and abilities (even differently-abled and special needs students) can benefit from martial arts training when lead by caring educators in a positive setting. These benefits quickly become clear to their loving parents and watchful teachers. As pre-school age children grow into kids, teens, and adults, they will appreciate the foundation of success that their parents and instructors helped instill in them.
