Martial arts training is highly regarded as one of the most effective and intensive forms of exercise for teenagers.
Today’s teenagers are busier than ever. This can be very stressful .
They spend their days in school and their evenings in a wide variety of activities ranging from sports to music, and they still need time to socialize. We believe that martial arts can provide the benefits of multiple activities all at once. Martial arts training offers physical fitness, social time, personal and emotional growth, discipline, and even a chance to practice creativity. Our fun and engaging classes for teens also teach practical life skills to teens who need them.
Martial arts training is highly regarded as one of the most effective and intensive forms of exercise for teenagers. Our drills and class exercises increase strength, flexibility, and agility–the most important attributes for any physical activity. Teenagers will immediately feel the benefits of this training in their other activities and sports, and an improvement in physical fitness will bring them newfound self-esteem. Taking classes at Family Self Defence Academy Five Dock, Parramatta or Castle Hill can make any teenager feel capable, powerful, and confident. In addition, they will develop a healthy habit of regular exercise that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives.
While these physical benefits are important, they actually account for only half of the benefits of martial arts training. At Family Self Defence Academy, we emphasized far more than just kicks and punches: we dive deeper and draw out the underlying lessons of the martial arts. The mental and emotional skills learned from diligent practice in martial arts are at least as valuable as the physical exercise, and usually far more so. The skills that we emphasize include perseverance, integrity, humility, diligence, and self-reliance–all skills that can be applied in any activity or line of work.
At Family Self Defence Academy Five Dock, Parramatta and Castle Hill, our students become strong in the mind, strong in the body, and strong in the heart. Any teenager who learns these skills will have a leg up as they undergo the difficult transition to adulthood.
