Traditionally, if the term “martial arts family” was used, it referred to the closeness and unity of fellow practitioners. Today, “martial arts family” has been redefined by the increasing popularity of the martial arts within entire households. Moms and dads, brothers and sisters, are learning the martial arts together. In today’s society, where everyone seems to be busy with their own agendas, families can unite a few times per week to train in the martial arts. We have a saying in the martial arts: “Families that kick together stick together.” Families that share a common interest often maintain or develop a special bond that improves the overall family relationship. Imagine the benefits to your family of training in the martial arts together.
You know that practice makes perfect and having a partner to workout with or review techniques with can be valuable learning tools and can enhance the training experience. You will find this relaxing, enjoyable, and a great way to stay motivated to exercise at home. Although you are working towards a common goal, you will find that each family member reaps a unique benefit from their training. For example, dad may enjoy the benefits of better weight control, the great feeling after working out, and increased energy. While mom might find improved muscle tone, increased energy, and the cardiovascular benefits to be her motivators. Children will enjoy the fundamentals of learning martial arts and the companionship of other family members being involved.
As a family martial arts center, we encourage everyone to participate in the martial arts. We invite your family to join our family in the quest for better health, improved relationships and, of course, a martial arts black belt!
