SELF -DEFENSE - Many parents worry about their teenagers being safe on the street, yet one of the real problems concerns a teen's ability to defend him/herself against others their age. Martial arts teaches teens to think instead of panic in potentially serious situations as well as how to react to threats from others.
SELF-CONFIDENCE - Self-confidence does not come naturally for most teens, but rather it is developed over a period of time. As a teen accomplishes new goals, their confidence levels increase and they become better able to meet harder challenges in the future. Teens become more self-confident in martial arts because they progress individually, at their own pace and are not judged against others.
FITNESS - Research has shown that the majority of teens are not in shape due to lack of exercise. Many teens have found that the traditional ways of working out, such as weights or running are boring and hard to stay committed to. The martial arts offers an exciting way to stay in shape that doesn't get boring or routine.
LIFESTYLE - Many parents have read articles or books about the martial arts, have seen TV documentaries, or have friends in the martial arts and have heard of the positive benefits that the martial arts have on young peoples lives.
