How many times do you have to ask your kids to do something? Twice, Three, Four, MORE?
Does that not drive you NUTS?
Well we help reinforce those values with structure, reatition and positive reinforment. Not only that kids think martial art instructors are super cool so they listen to what they have to say, even if it is exactly what you have been saying for years! :)

Five brain-boosting reasons to take up martial arts – at any age
Posted: July 08, 2019
We are all aware that exercise generally has many benefits, such as improving physical fitness and strength. But what do we know about the effects of specific types of exercise? Researchers have already shown that jogging can increase life expectancy, for example, while yoga makes us happy. However, there is one activity that goes beyond enhancing physical and mental health – martial arts can boost your brain’s cognition too.
1. Improved attention
Researchers say that there are two ways to improve attention, through attention training (AT), and attention state training (AST). AT is based on practising a specific skill and getting better at that skill, but not others – using a brain training video game, for example. AST on the other hand is about getting into a specific state of mind that allows a stronger focus. This can be done by using exercise, meditation, or yoga, among other things.
