There are many benefits of participating in martial arts at any age. Martial arts is a great activity for adults and kids, making it something you could potentially do as a whole family.
Martial arts brings students of all levels together. And at The Way Family Dojo, we have a variety of different programs available. Each member of your family is sure to find a class that will fit them best.
Here are just three reasons to share martial arts as a family:
1. Bond over a common interest.
It can be challenging to find an activity that each member of your family can share. Martial arts is an activity that allows your family to bond over a common interest. You may not participate in the exact same classes, but your individual interest and experience in martial arts can create a shared experience for your entire family.
2. Become a more fit and healthy family.
Another reason to share martial arts as a family is to increase health and physical fitness. Martial arts training is a fun way to include more movement and physical activity in your daily lives. Unlike more traditional forms of exercising, martial arts includes the opportunity to challenge yourself as an individual and learn valuable skills without getting bored. Parents who make regular physical activity a part of their lives set great examples for their kids. And kids who form healthy exercise habits at an early age are more likely to continue these habits as adults.
3. Support, encourage and hold each other accountable.
A third reason to consider practicing martial arts as a family is the support, encouragement, and accountability. Sharing this interest as a family makes it more likely that you’ll continue practicing martial arts long-term. And again, even if each family member is at a different level or in a different class, you can still show support to each other and encourage one another to make progress.
