3 more reasons for your kids to participate in karate and martial arts.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned 3 great reasons to have your child participate in or continue to participate in martial arts, karate and Smiley stretchjujitsu for kids from Total Ryu Martial Arts.  As previously mentioned, martial arts training exceeds that of most sports at developing key physical abilities and life time confidence.  There are many, many benefits that you come from martial arts training.  Those include, whole body asymmetrical coordination, bone conditioning, complete flexibility combined with strength, eye to hand coordination, power, speed, agility I could go on and on.  You would literally have to take all the sports available at the same time to get the same physical and mental benefits of martial arts training.  Think about it.


Total Ryu Martial Arts, Karate and Jujitsu classes have an inherent goal setting process built in to the youth and adult programs.  Belt advancement is the goal for all students.  They work towards learning and improving new techniques so that they can advance to the next level.  At that new level they learn new techniques and improve on previously learned ones.  This process becomes automatic and ingrained in the students.   Without  the realization of the students, they have learned the perfect goal setting, goal implementation and continuous improvement process.


In order to train in martial arts you have to learn how to work with a partner or partners.  This helps the students learn to work together to a common goal.  They learn how to help each other out during class and also to help each other advance.  This process of mutual cooperation is not only essential for progress in the dojo, but in life.  Our goal is to help the students take the skill of cooperation outside of the dojo, to family life, school and work.

Self Defense

Total Ryu Martial Arts karate and jujitsu programs are the best around. These programs will provide the student who regularly attends, learns and advances with the best self-defense skills that can be learned.  However, our goal is complete self defense, not just physical self defense.  We believe the better you become at karate or jujitsu the more confident you will appear.  Those who communicate confidence non verbally are less likely to be bullied, attacked or otherwise threatened.
