Why is it worth for our children to train Kung Fu?



Learning self-defense techniques helps build self-confidence not only in the physical, but also in the mental sphere of a young person. Building internal strength means that we stop looking for it in material things. This is not the latest game or super fashionable jeans that makes us cool, but a sense of self-esteem that parents are not always able to work out with their children. Doing exercises and praise from the teacher, full acceptance of our perfections and imperfections is very important. Currently, in so few places the child can experience this.

Kung-fu because of the intensity of training allows you to relieve emotional tension after a full day spent in school on mental effort. Exercise allows you to sweat away anger and nerves and reduce the level of aggression in children. People practicing martial arts are characterized by cheerfulness and self-control also outside the training room. Inner peace and mental balance results from the acquisition of self-defense techniques and the awareness that we are able to defend ourselves in a difficult situation.


It is well known that physical movement is good for health. Kung Fu combines physical effort with the breath and voice-regularity of the breath guarded by the Master. Proper breathing is essential for exercising and controlling fatigue. From my own experience I know that thanks to regular training of the eastern martial arts, asthma is regressing, appetite, muscle mass and bone strengthening are increasing.


Coordinating skills should be improved at every stage of training preparation. As the study shows, the climax is the period between 8-12 years, when children are able to learn and master a lot of new motor activities in a very fast way. These skills allow you to build foundations for a different sport, eg dance, acrobatics, athletics and disciplines requiring quick response. When learning the sequence of movements and techniques, focus is somehow forced to do the best exercise. There is no doubt that it will pay off at school in the form of better academic results. What’s more, many universities abroad appreciate candidates for studies having years of learning martial arts.


Kung Fu classes take place in groups, and some exercises in pairs, which reduces the physical and personal contact with another person. Shaolin students feel a strong sense of community with their classmates. The sense of solidarity.


Respect is an inseparable element when learning martial arts and is an important aspect of the culture from which kung fu comes from. Students express respect for each other, for the trainer and the school they attend. Respect for people who have more extensive knowledge and experience than we often transfer to school teachers and allows us to build healthy relationships.


At the beginning, the discipline is introduced by the instructor and more advanced class participants. Over time, each of the adepts learns and develops their self-discipline. This happens when the student begins to feel pride of their skills, set real goals and strive for them, which allows him to develop. The science of self-discipline at a young age in later life will result in the ability to consistently pursue a goal.


A lot of research on language absorption shows that there is no more effective method of memorizing language such as physical activity and listening. I graduated from the Continental School of Tai Chi Chuan in English and I teach in this language to facilitate my students as instructors and open them to international trainers. Thank you and see you!
