What people have to say

As a former teacher I know how important physical education is for children. Exercise is vital for healthy development and in the right environment taking part in sports means that they can leam the values of teamwork, selfdiscipline and hard work. Sport also offers unique experiences and a chance for self-expression and I believe every child should have the opportunity to take part.

l find it refreshing and good for our community to have activities such as martial arts. Ifeel it is important to grow a healthy society and I firmly believe that every child can learn through any martial art. Martial arts teach children to respect their life and their bodies, to respect their elders and their community, and — ultimately their own country. Hopefully, children will learn to respect the entire world and the people that live within it. I have had the pleasure of knowing George for two years, he kindly invited my family and myself to visit Moldova and we'd definitely like to do that in the future.

Not only do martial arts improve the mental andphysical health of adults, they also provide distinct advantages for a child's development. One of the most important mental and physical benefits ofmartial ortsfor children isfocus. The complexity of martial arts systems means that a great deal of teaching is required before anything can put into practice. As such, listening and concentration skills are put to the test when it comes to mastering martial arts. At a young age, a child is likely to have a relatively low attention span. This is why getting them to learn the importance of listening, remembering and carrying out instructions is essential. Martial arts, for example, has been scientificallyproven to alleviate the symptoms ofAttention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Martial arts demand the highest levels of mutual respect among their practitioners. From the minute a child walks into a dojo, they must follow strict social etiquette when interacting with their instructors and their peers. Whether it's bowing to their masters or supporting other students. By showing respect all times, they help each other achieve a common goal as they learn a new life skill. What's more, learning to work as part of a team is essential for success in a workplace environment later in life.
