Report cards just came out in the Halton District School Board. We hope that everyone had something to be happy about when they opened their envelopes, but we know that sometimes report cards can be stressful to receive. Maybe your child’s report card isn’t reflecting their real potential, or they had a hard semester.
There are countless reasons why your child may not be succeeding at school that have nothing to do with innate ability. Children who have trouble sitting still, who struggle with focusing, who are too shy to ask questions, or who are bullied may struggle to do their best. Before you send your child for tutoring or pile on the extra credit, which may end up compounding the problem, we invite you to enroll your child in karate. Even one class at No Limits Martial Arts, the best karate dojo in Milton and Oakville, can begin to make a difference; and success in karate can help your child succeed in school.
More than a Workout
The team of senseis at No Limits Martial arts have been teaching for years, and have seen first hand how karate impacts every aspect of your child’s life. We implore you, that if you want to change your child’s behaviour or help them gain confidence to help combat shyness or bullying, that you start with martial arts. It teaches self-discipline and perseverance, while also instilling confidence and respect. This is the power of martial arts.
Building Blocks for Life
The education that your child gets will help to lay the groundwork for the rest of their life. We know that kids who are happy in school and able to participate in class will flourish, which is why karate is so important. Here are some of the most common issues that children face in school that can affect their grades, and how karate can help!
|Hyperactive/Can’t Sit Still||Outlet for Energy|
|Low Self-Esteem||Confidence through Achievement|
|Difficulty Focusing||Instills Discipline|
|Being Bullied||Learn to Defend and Stand Up for Themselves|
|Shyness||Learn to Be at Ease with Themselves|
Moving on From a Disappointing Report Card
If your child did not have a good report card this term, then they may start to feel disappointed in themselves. For a lot of kids, this can fester, and it is relatively common for a kid who performs poorly in class to start thinking that they’re not capable of doing better. Disappointments can dampen enthusiasm for learning, and one poor grade can make some kids think they are simply “bad” at a subject. Disappointment is a normal part of life, though, and learning to get past disappointment and hardship to achieve something amazing is vital to personal success. Martial arts teach kids to take hits and then to get back up and strive for greatness. They learn how to cope with setbacks and to challenge themselves without comparing themselves to others.
The persistence and discipline that kids learn in martial arts classes is something that applies directly to their education. Learning karate at a school like No Limits Martial Arts will teach your child to focus, be self-disciplined, and have self-respect. Your child will absorb the lessons they learn at karate, and they will carry over into their home life and the classroom – we guarantee that if this report card wasn’t everything you wanted, the next one could be!
