Many people still have many misconceptions about Martial Arts. Hollywood has created a myth that martial artists are violent people ready to hurt and break the bones of anyone who gets in their way. However, the opposite is really the true spirit of a true martial artists.
We teach Martial Arts with the purpose of teaching children to resolve conflict, not create it.
We teach children physical skill to build self confidence, and also we teach them mental skills which will help them to resolve conflicts before anyone gets hurt.
These qualities can be very helpful to children who lived in a society where more children are being victimized by bullies and peer pressure. Kids need to learn mental self-defense skills so they can handle bullies and avoid being victims. children need to learn how to use more theirs minds instead of theirs fist.
Teaching children Martial Arts can help them to learn to defend themselves without ever resorting to physical force, because "knowing that you can protect yourself can keep you from being afraid when a bully picks on you.
