Printer-friendly versionSend by emailPDF version

Kenny Myers, a child care expert from Texas, has a great article at http://www.kenneymyers.com/blog/10-reasons-martial-arts-benefits-kids/. Kenny is not a martial arts instructor or school owner, just a child care expert, so his article focuses on children. However, in many respects I would go so far as to say the title should be "10 Reasons Martial Arts Benefits Everyone".

Without reposting his entire article, the 10 reasons he lists are:

  1. Fostering Self-Discipline
  2. Boosting Socialization Skills
  3. Encouraging Physical Activity
  4. Learning to Set and Achieve Goals
  5. Increased Self-Esteem
  6. Instilling a Sense of Respect
  7. Encouraging Non-Violent Conflict Resolution
  8. Improving Listening Skills
  9. Developing Teamwork Skills
  10. Improvement in Other Areas of Life
