For kids who are not natural athletes – team sports can be devastating on self-esteem. These kids often feel like they are ‘letting the team down’ because they can’t keep up as well.
But in martial arts – kids are in a group environment, but every child is on their own unique journey. They can go at their own pace. Some kids advance faster, others slower. That’s okay.
What’s important is that your child is having fun, challenging themselves, making friends, and growing stronger inside and out.
The coordination, strength, and speed comes with time – even in kids who are not ‘natural athletes’!
Yes! In fact, kids training might be the best solution to this problem. That’s because martial arts are challenging both physically and mentally. This keeps kids engaged and focused. Plus, every Nampa class is full of fun, fitness-boosting games where kids are learning focus, confidence, and respect without even realizing it.
We disguise learning as fun – and keep your child laughing and smiling. They won’t miss their games for a moment.
