Our Program has many benefits when it comes to developing better life skills such as discipline, focus, and respect, but what people do not always realize is that martial arts training is great for kid’s fitness as well!
With childhood obesity being a major trend that kids face today, a fitness regiment and reinforcement is crucial in helping children today become healthier and more active!
According to The Partnership for a Healthier America:
-An estimated 16.9 percent of children and adolescents ages 2 to 9 are obese and 31.7 percent are overweight. This translates to more than 12 million children and adolescents who are obese, and more than 23 million who are overweight.
-21.2 percent of children only ages 2 to 5 already obese or overweight.
-The obesity rate for children ages 6 to 11 has also more than quadrupled – from 4.2 to 19.6 percent – as well as tripled for adolescents ages 12 to 19 – from 4.6 to 18.1 percent – over the past four decades.
These statistics are alarming, but there is a solution. Our program helps to encourage children to live active and healthy lives. We provide the structure and follow through to help students achieve their own fitness goals and strive to be leaders in fitness in their every day lives!
