Just incase you were wondering, here's some reasons why training in any Martial Arts discipline from a young age is incredibly positive:
- STAYING HEALTHY & ACTIVE - Paramount to the wellbeing, confidence & happiness of any child is their health & weight. Almost 10% of children in their first year of school are now obese in the UK & this is continuing to rise.
- CONFIDENCE & SELF RESPECT - And let's not forget, respect for others. Training with older more experienced artists will help children gain a tremendous amount of confidence & self respect. Not only this, but they will be learning the skills that could help them if ever a bad situation were to arise.
- DISPUTE/CONFLICT RESOLUTION - Leading from self respect for others, children can learn to find a simple resolution to any conflict that may arise without the need for a physical reaction
- CONNECT MIND & BODY - They'll learn to listen to their body and think quickly with their reactions.
With all of these reasons in mind, we understand how important it is for children to have the best protection possible when training within Martial Arts. We stock everything from head guards, boxing gloves, mouth guards & sparring boots along with just about anything else they will need to ensure safe practice. From trusted brands such as Century, Macho & Shock Doctor, you will have extensive choice when deciding what protective gear is best for your child or your students.
