6 Reasons Kids Should Train Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
1. SELF-DEFENSE SKILLS
MMA teaches kids a variety of martial arts styles and self-defense skills. Your child picks up anti-bullying techniques that do not involve physical contact or aggression toward a threat. They understand that their first line of defense is to avoid confrontation or diffuse a situation with confidence.
2. HEALTH AND WELLNESS
MMA gives kids a fun and safe environment to be physically active. Martial arts training increases kids’ physical health, including their endurance, strength, balance, flexibility, speed, coordination, and agility. Kids who learn healthy habits in their youth are more likely to continue these habits as adults.
3. SOCIAL SKILLS
Martial arts instructors expect their students to treat each other with respect. In a martial arts class environment, kids learn to develop critical social skills and positively interact with kids outside of school.
In martial arts, kids steadily improve their individual skills through practice. Working toward continuous improvement allows kids to work on goal-setting. The process of setting and accomplishing personal martial arts goals builds a child’s self-confidence.
MMA is as much of a mental workout as it is physical. Rather than muscling through a class and relying on physical strength, students must problem-solve and use strategy against an opponent.
MMA training helps kids to become more self-disciplined. In martial arts, kids learn to stay in control of their actions. They also learn what it means to build a strong work ethic.
