6 - 9 Year Old Martial Arts Classes
A psychology study conducted in the US found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self esteem.
This is why hundreds of parents are using Cobra Martial Arts to supplement their children's education and upbringing.
Cobra Martial Arts is a lot more than just punching and kicking - it is also a rock solid, holistic and healthy (physically and mentally) way of living ones life.
At every lesson, children are taught that Martial Arts works as a 'triangle', meaning that it's principles must be extended to school and home life and are not just for Cobra dojo (training centre).
Discipline, Respect, Courtesy
For example, we bow to our instructor before class to show respect and this respect must also be shown to our parents and school teachers. Behaving and performing well in the dojo is not enough to pass your belts. We monitor, through a tracking form known as a Grading Form, that this same behavior and performance is replicated at home and at school.
Additionally there is a discussion (theory) section at every class known as The Master's Message where the instructor discusses one of 40 topics with the children, such as:
Courtesy in the dojo, at home and at school.
How to say 'NO' to cigarettes, alcohol and drugs.
How to stay strong mentally, in order to avoid unhealthy peer pressure.
The importance of education and study.
Inappropriate use of martial arts (i.e. not at home, school or on brothers and sisters).
Goal Setting (all students set goals for school, home and martial arts as part of the course)
