Why Martial Arts for Kids

As your Sensei Ray Litvak, I know exactly what bullying is all about from personal experience. As one of the smallest kids in my class, I was the natural target for bullies of all stripes. That all changed, though, when I started taking martial lessons as a kid at the age of 12. I took the bull’s eye off my back and never looked back.

I know what kids martial arts classes can do at a personal level - and those benefits go way beyond just getting them off the couch.

The physical benefits of martial arts for kids

It helps to improve balance and coordination
It improves fitness levels
It improves overall motor skills

The benefits of judo and martial arts lessons aren't all about the physical aspects however. You'll watch as their confidence levels and self-assurance grow along with their proficiency at this venerable martial art.


Martial arts as a way to combat bullying

When it comes to bullying, martial arts lessons can benefit both the victim and the bully - or potential bully.

Along with confidence, judo teaches children about control and discipline. It teaches the principle of avoiding conflict until you have no other choice and that even then, you respond in a way that's considered and thoughtful - not in anger or emotion.

• Bring your child for two weeks of free martial arts lessons in North York - you have nothing to lose and a world of confidence and physical activity to gain.
