The benefits of martial arts are numerous. Focus, self confidence, self control, self defense,
concentration, just to name a few. To focus specifically on teenagers however, additional benefits
from martial arts can be realized.Teenagers are quickly growing into their bodies. At this point
in their life, physical conditioning such as the martial arts is a great way to build the neurological
connections between the brain and muscles for better coordination and balance that will be used the
rest of their life. While this is true with any sport, martial arts has one advantage, it doesn’t
have to be competitive. This leads to less frustration, less pressure, less injuries, and therefore
a much more positive atmosphere which leads to greater success and longevity.
Another aspect to take into consideration aside from the physical is that of the mental strength that
is built. Martial arts practitioners are placed in difficult and stressful situations periodically
throughout their training, yet are still expected to perform and think rationally. Yet another benefit
is that of building leadership qualities. Many practitioners begin teaching within a couple years of
training with the understanding that teaching is an incredible way to learn and further one’s own skills,
building one’s patience and understanding of the way others work and learn. Lastly, the respect,
discipline, and goal setting demanded by the martial arts tends to flood into other facets of life
creating an upstanding, respectable and successful adult.
