Is martial arts too violent for kids?
Every so often, we get a parent that is hesitant to sign their kids up for martial arts because they’re worried it is too violent. Unfortunately, movies and television have a bad habit of sometimes portraying martial arts as an aggressive practice.
A great instructor will teach kids the value of integrity and respect when it comes to martial arts. In fact, several reputable studies, like one done by the Journal of Sports Science and Medicine in 2010 found that kids who participated in martial arts for a longer period of time actually showed lower levels of aggressiveness overall.
Kids can get so much out of learning martial arts, from the discipline needed to advance, to the confidence that comes with learning self-defence and progressing through the various belts.
