Martial Arts for Kids Review & Giveaway

 
 
 I've always wanted to sign my kids up for a Martial Arts class, but with the cost of these courses and having four kids, we haven't been able to find a way to afford.  I definitely believe in everything that Martial Arts teaches, and I think it can be very beneficial for children, but everything around us is way out of our budget. 

So you can imagine my excitement when I found out your can now enroll your kids in a Martial Arts course online. 

Liz Weaver has been teaching the self defense art of Shou' Shu' Kung Fu professionally since 1995. She pioneered the teaching of children in this art. Having perfected the teaching system over the last 19 years she has now brought the experience online.

 
The primary benefit of training in the system is self defense, however, children will also gain in other areas, such as:

Respect- They will learn the protocols and meanings of these protocols. these are designed to teach respect for oneself and others.

Discipline- Our martial arts instruction is inspiring. Children will be inspired to work hard and will thereby naturally develop self discipline.

Physical Fitness - Classes are energetic. Kids will get lots of exercise.

Coordination - Shou' Shu' develops coordination. Especially due to that large amount of cross lateral motions. Cross lateral motions have been shown to enhance learning. Especially helpful for kids with ADD, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia or similar.

Ant-Bullying - Kids will learn to understand how to prevent bullying as well as determining threat level and appropriate responses.

Fun - classes your child is sure to enjoy!

 

My kids really enjoyed following along the different lectures.  We've haven't finished all the lectures yet, but I feel that they get a great understanding from the online course. 

The lectures range from 4 to 40 minutes, and they're at a great pace to be able to follow along, even for very young children. You can stop and continue later if you please, and you can go back through any lesson you want. 

I wasn't sure how well my kids would do with an online course, but it has worked really well for them so far.

  15. I like the idea of learning martial arts online. My family has done different work out videos online and enjoyed them very much. Martial arts mixes exercise with self defense but you take away so much more from it too. I think it would be a lot of fun to learn skills that will last a lifetime in a new way.
