Parents If you think that martial arts classes are just for kids, think again. Although your little one and his friends might get a kick out of their martial arts class, there are plenty of classes at MMAX academy that offer options for parents to join in as well. Taking a parent-child, or family, martial arts class with your kid has a bevy of benefits that can help you to bond with your child and better understand what he is learning
According to the athletics experts at the Educated Sports Parent website, mums and dads can impact a child’s experience playing (or learning about) a sport by getting involved. What better way to show your little one just how involved you are in his/hers martial arts class than joining in? Doing so gives you time to bond with your child, plus it shows him or her that you are interested in their hobby and allows you to spend time together. Additionally, joining in on the learning gives you the opportunity to take the training home, practicing together during non-class times. This can provide your child with an extra layer of encouragement and a feeling that you are part of their learning experience.
As a parent If you don’t have time to hit the gym or don’t want to pay the extra money to hire a babysitter just so you can get a quick workout in, joining a martial arts class with your child. This is a creative solution to finding time to exercise. The physical benefits of martial arts include increased strength, better coordination and flexibility. Self-confidence and improved ability to focus are other benefits, says Healthy Children. While you might initially join your children for a martial arts class to make sure that they get these benefits, joining in yourself can have a profound effect on your own physical health as well.
