If you have seen the movies, you know that nun chuks can be a very effective weapon, as often seen in the Bruce Lee movies. While it looks great on TV, it takes a lot of training and practice to get good. Taking classes on how to use these weapons is available by highly qualified instructors.

Get in Shape

In addition to learning how to use these weapons, you will need to get in shape. The classes emphasize losing weight and getting fit and they have the exercises needed to take the pounds off. Being highly flexible, as well as being coordinated, is necessary for the proper use of the nun chuks and martial arts.

Other Benefits

In addition to getting in shape, the sport will add the ability to have a high level of concentration and focus. Students must learn how the weapon moves and be able to use it interchangeably between hands. This requires that you know how it is moving and where it is at all times.

Being able to concentrate is a benefit that will extend into school, allowing students to be able to listen better to the teachers and study with greater concentration. Everything they do in life, if they are going to succeed at it, will be helped by this ability.

Developing stamina is another benefit. This enables them to continue doing something repeatedly, or trying something new without quitting – even if it hurts. Before long, they will be able to do things without being asked, because of the greater self-discipline that will develop, too.

Self-defense

This weapon is excellent for use in close-up self-defense. Its greatest value comes when a student can use it well after lots of training and practice. It is important to understand where it may not be legal to carry it. In addition to the training in weapons, the student will also learn punches, kicks, blocks, etc.

Belt Ranks

Different belts can be gained from training and much practice with the nun chuks and other martial arts weapons. The more practice that a student does on their own will result in faster promotion.

Self-control

Instruction in any form of martial arts, as long as it is continued, will lead to a strong development of self-control and self-discipline. It takes self-discipline to master any move and get it down correctly. These qualities will benefit them for life.

Students are also taught only to use a martial arts weapon when absolutely necessary, and that would be only after other channels have been tried (if possible). Instructors are careful to instill in the students to have respect for other people, and safety is always emphasized in all of the classes.

Our Kids Karate Classes Develop:

Focus

From the very first class, your child will learn the importance of eye contact, posture, and active listening skills that will benefit them not only in Karate but at home, on the playing field, and of course, at school. Both teachers and parents often notice the dramatic difference in children who study the Martial Arts. Your child will be more focused with school and homework.

Self-Control

When confronted, a child’s first option should be to get away; fighting should be the very last resort. It is a myth that the Martial Arts fosters aggressiveness in children. On the contrary, with continuous training, there are natural increases in a child’s confidence, discipline and self-control.

Self-Discipline

The Martial Arts instills discipline in students by requiring full attention in class, refraining from unruly behavior, the importance of arriving on time and being prepared. Students are also taught to follow instructions and not interrupt instructors. Kids are expected to keep uniforms and other items clean and organized.

Self-Confidence

Many parents enroll their children in Martial Arts to boosts their confidence, self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. Kids put forth their best effort, defend themselves, recognize their own potential and believe in their abilities. Because of their own efforts, there is a feeling of pride with each rank advancement.

Respect

Nothing does a better job at teaching the “old school” values of respect and courtesy. Martial Arts training teaches children to answer in a respectful manner to instructors (“Yes Sensei” or “No Sensei”), bow when entering and leaving the dojo, tag hands before sparring, stand straight before class begins and raising hands to answer or ask a question.

Goal Setting

At a very early age, Martial Art students are encouraged to set long term goals. The most obvious goal is reaching the rank of Black Belt. The Martial Arts instills indomitable spirit so children never give up on their dreams. Learning to set goals encompasses the life experiences of a Martial Arts student.

Fitness

“Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years.” (CDC, 7/2013). “Two-thirds of U.S. adults are overweight or obese.” (Flegalet al., 2012). We hear about it all the time. Did you know that in many cases, the bad lifestyle habits that lead to obesity start in childhood and can get worse over time? Fortunately, the Martial Arts help families avoid falling into these statistics by teaching healthy lifestyles and fitness early on. The Martial Arts improve flexibility, endurance, balance, agility, strength and motor skills.

Self-Confidence

Many parents enroll their children in Martial Arts to boosts their confidence, self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. Kids put forth their best effort, defend themselves, recognize their own potential and believe in their abilities. Because of their own efforts, there is a feeling of pride with each rank advancement.
