Teaching children self discipline

Moo Sa Martial Arts & Kids Karate

Yesterday our topic was self discipline. We taech our students that self discipline is doing what you need to do without being told. We reinforce this by talking about how we use it in class, which is fun of course. The students get to practice punching and kicking and we tell them how they are working on self discipline. This is when the students learn the best. They are having fun and their minds are open. We talked about things we can do at home that mom and dad don't have to remind us to do. The students gave me some great answers like putting your dish in the sink when you are done eating, getting dressed in the morning, and cleaning your room. I hope everyone showed their parents great self discipline after that class :)

Karate is more than just an activity or a sport

Moo Sa Martial Arts & Kids Karate

Moo Sa Karate in aston teaches 2 kinds of karate: Tae Kwon Do and Tang Soo Do. These are both Korean martial arts. I like to talk to the students about the difference between martial arts and sports. Just to be clear I think sports are great. But there is a big difference. The way we explain martial arts is that it is a way of life. It teaches you things that you should use on a daily basis like respect, foucs, self control, humility, confidence, self discipline..... The list goes on and on. We relate our training to every day evetns in every class. This is where the big difference between sports and martial arts is. Now don't get me wrong, some sports coaches are phenominal at delevering life lessons in their training and teaching of players. But this is one of our main jobs as martial arts teachers. When our students leave the karate school we try to remind them to think before they respond to mom and dad and make sure they say the right thing. Or we remind them to say yes ma'am and yes sir at home. Reminders like this done over a long period of time are a big help to students.

Help your child learn to focus

Moo Sa Martial Arts & Kids Karate

During classes saturday we talked about focusing our mind. We had a lot of fun with this. We teach our students focusing your mind is thinking aobut what you are doing. That is  the start of it. I used coloring a picture as an example of how we think about what we are doing. I asked the students if they were coloring a picture what are you thinking about? They all answered im thinking about coloring! Of course but if that is all you did then you were color all over the palce. Do we meed to think about staying in the lines? If you are coloring a picture of goofy for example, and you want to color his hat, do you just randomly pick a color? No, you think and rememebr that his hat is green and you choose the green crayon.

These examples might seem simple but it starts to put thinking about what we are doing into perspecticve for the students. Now of course we then went on with examples for our techniques in class, but we always make a connection to home and school with the students.

Summer Activities

Moo Sa Martial Arts & Kids Karate

Are you looking for your child to do something different this summer? Martial Arts is great for keeping kids active and in good shape. And of course we are talking about respect, focus, self confidence, and self defense in these classes. We can't talk about all of that in 1 class of course. We warm up, stretch, go through our drills, and try to encourage our students to use their respect and self discipline at home. If you are intested in this class us today at 610-800-7629.
