Martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. Awareness, self-defence, mental concentration, focus, balancing the physic as well as mind, self control, self respect, self confidence are the added benefits on learning martial arts.

Martial arts techniques are divided into four areas: striking, kicking, grappling and throwing, and seizing and locking the joints. Every type of Chinese Kung Fu contains techniques from each of these four areas.

Every time a practitioner executes a kick or punch he is stretching specific muscles. When performed regularly there can be overall flexibility of the body's muscles.

Karate (Japanese)


A system of self-development using kicks and punches. Its quick, sharp actions involve snapping movements of the joints, which means that kids need to warm up carefully.

Tae Kwon Do (Korean)

A form of karate developed as a military art, which has become one of the more popular martial arts in the U.S. It uses kicking and punching movements to energize the body, and breathing and meditation techniques to provide focus.

Judo (Japanese)

Taught as a competitive sport, judo teaches kids how to throw a partner using balance and leverage and helps them learn self-control and respect for their opponent.


Jujitsu (Japanese)

A competitive form of self-defense that teaches students to use their opponent's weight and strength against him. Having a partner fosters cooperation.

Aikido (Japanese)

Uses many of the same movements as jujitsu but is gentler and noncompetitive. It, too, is an excellent discipline for teaching children how to work with a partner.

Kung Fu (Chinese)

A rigorous and physical form of karate that involves more fluid movements than its Japanese cousin, making it easier on joints. It's fast-paced, so kids get an aerobic workout.
