Child obesity is an enormous problem throughout the world, and the epidemic is only set to get worse. Martial Arts provides a great all over body workout, forcing participants to use muscles that are rarely exercised.
GREAT FOR SOCIAL SKILLS
Combat Cadets classes are for children from 4 years old to 14 years old.
KEEPING THEM FIT
Social skills is a crucial aspect of childhood and a lack of it can really show and affect the child as they grow older. Martial Arts, with its team work and skill sharing, is one of the activities that encourages and promotes this in a healthy way.
THEY WILL LEARN TEAM WORK
Team work is something required in school, the workplace and everyday life. Martial Arts is impossible without effective team work, forcing them to develop necessary skills.
BOOST SELF ESTEEM
Many kids suffer from lack of self esteem, however confident they may appear. Martial Arts is rewarding in every sense, and awards and competitions will help to boost their self-esteem and confidence.
INCREASE IN DISCIPLINE
With discipline being such a leading factor in Martial Arts it is easy for this routine to cross over into everyday life, ensuring better practices and attitude when dealing with all manner of situations.
Martial Arts is all about self-improvement and growing within the sport, and so target setting and achieving goals plays a big part.

ENHANCING LISTENING SKILLS
Martial Arts is one of the few sports that requires as much listening and paying attention as it does physical activity.
The modern world presents many problems for concentration and focus, with distractions everywhere. Each session of Martial Arts requires lengthy concentration.
Getting children to understand the notion of respect for others and their elders is no easy task, but Martial Arts certainly helps, emphasising its value.
