4. Is Martial Arts is just for boys
– No Way! Many of kids in martial arts schools are girls. They have just as much fun as the boys and learn valuable skills that will aid them for the rest of their lives.
5. Can you learn martial arts before you are 7? – Many martial arts schools are not equipped or properly trained to handle kids under the age of 7 If you child is under the age of 7 make sure you look for a martial arts school with an age-based curriculum and classes. Children learn at different speeds at different stages of development. I would recommend looking for classes grouped as follows: Ages 3-4, Ages 5-6, Ages 7-9 and Ages 10-14.
6. You have to be athletic to learn – Martial arts is a great foundation builder. Because you are learning how to more effectively use your body and build up the necessary muscle and motor skills to do so. Even the least athletic people can have SUBSTANTIAL increases in what they can do physically as well as mentally.
