Martial Arts for Preschoolers
There are very few options for children ages 3 to 5 when it comes to sports and fitness. During these Covid-19 days it's even more difficult. Martial arts training has been providing children and adults a positive influence in their life for over 1000 years.
By the time kids are 3 to 5 years old, their physical skills, like running, jumping, kicking, and throwing, have come a long way. Now they'll continue to refine these skills and build on them to learn more complex ones.
Take advantage of your child's natural tendency to be active. Regular physical activity promotes healthy growth and development and learning new skills builds confidence.
Preschoolers should participate in a variety of fun and challenging physical activities that help build skills and coordination, but aren't beyond their abilities. Preschoolers should be active about 3 hours a day, including light, moderate, and vigorous activities.
Kids this age are learning to hop, skip, and jump forward, and are eager to show off how they can balance on one foot, catch a ball, or do a somersault. Many parents look to organized sports to get preschoolers active. But the average preschooler has not mastered the basics, such as throwing, catching, and taking turns. Even simple rules may be hard for them to understand, as any parent who has watched their child run the wrong way during a game knows.
Martial arts like taekwondo and kickboxing can be a fun way for your little one to learn respect and discipline, as well as keep them fit and alert. Martial arts in general will equip your child with certain life skills, as well as giving him or her an opportunity to take part in an exhilarating and enjoyable contact sport with supported training.
Contrary to popular belief, martial arts training actually works to help children avoid conflict, and many of the various martial art styles work on a principle of respect, focus and friendship. Tae Kwon Do and kickboxing can offer your child a thorough grounding in both physical and mental development. Given the complicated moves that define Tae Kwon Do, your child’s capacity to concentrate and remember will be increased. Physically, he or she will learn to be in control of their body, as well as develop fitness levels, strength and flexibility.
