Martial Arts vs. Team Sports

  • Children do not do anything unsupervised
  • Children learn at their own pace
  • Children are treated as individuals
  • Children do not finish the class as either a winner or a loser (unlike team sports)
  • The whole class aims to succeed
  • Children compete to better themselves
  • No child is ever made to sit out of a class (unless it’s due to bad behavior)
  • Children can practice by themselves in their own time or with classmates
  • Parents can be encouraged to participate
  • The skills they learn can help protect themselves, their family, and their friends

Martial Arts training also provides a solid athletic foundation for other team sports!
