Kung Fu Class for Kids (Wushu)
It is good to nurture your child’s talent while still at a tender age. This is also the time that you can instill some values in him or her. In Kung Fu Republic, the martial arts program is especially designed for kids between the ages of 5 and 16. We train children from beginners all the way up to competitive level. Our courses are categorized into beginners, intermediate and advance level. We also encourage them to compete at different level of tournaments from state to international level. Best of all, it’s really fun, and kids gain a great sense of achievement from being able to perform the same moves as their movie heroes such as Jackie Chan or Jet Li.
The way a Kung Fu class in Sydney operates is not the same as that of the normal schoolroom. Children are taught Kung Fu differently from adults. What happens is that the child is first of all taught things like simple anatomy and physiology. The good thing is that children are always ready to learn and so they absorb this easily. From there they are taught to meditate which helps them to visualize themselves doing them later in the training that they will have. In Kung Fu Republic, the program is specially designed to develop the mind, body and spirit of the kids.
Learning Kung Fu involves complex sequences of physical movements. It takes a great deal of focus and attention in order to excel on it. Therefore, it helps kids to develop their concentration as well as mental alertness. Frequent practice and diligence in training are also an integral part of Kung Fu training. Your kids will learn to persevere and work hard in order to achieve success.
The regular practice of Kung Fu is excellent for developing fitness in kids. Area of benefits including:
- Increase of flexibility
- Improve strength
- Improve balance, reflexes and coordination
Frequent drills of the basic movements such as punches, blocks and kicks help to develop these physical abilities. It also helps kids to develop their reflex actions and muscle memory for self-defense.
Kung Fu is more than a physical activity. Along with it comes a large body of life philosophy regarding respect, courage, justice and honour. Studies have shown that kids who learn martial arts have greater confidence, higher self-esteem and are more responsible.
Besides the benefits, it is important to consider some factors before you enroll your child in these classes. Below are some of those factors.
Before you think of taking your child for Kung Fu, you should know your objectives and that of your child’s beforehand in order to help the child to be dedicated to the training. This is because they can get lost in the enjoyable sessions and forget about everything else if they don’t have something to focus on. This will teach your child self-control and concentration.
They will be able to focus more due to the different belts that they usually receive when they move to a higher rank which every child wants. There are also some competitions involved which can teach your child the importance of difficult work and also self-discipline if she or he participates in them.
Choosing type of martial arts that is appropriate for him or her
There are different types of martial arts and so you should ensure that the one you choose for your child matches his or her personality. Give you child the chance to say what interests him or her. This will make him or her take it seriously and stick with it because it is what he or she loves.
