Pre-school martial arts training to help develop motor skills

Martial arts training is not only a great way for children to learn self-defence, but it can also be a fantastic way to help them develop motor skills. A recent study conducted by the University of Essex in the UK found that pre-schoolers who participated in martial arts classes showed significant improvements in their gross and fine motor skills when compared to their peers who did not participate in such classes.

The benefits of martial arts training extend beyond the physical. The discipline required to learn and master the techniques can also help children develop important life skills such as patience, focus, and perseverance. In addition, the social interaction involved in taking classes and working with classmates can help boost a child’s self-confidence and social skills.

If you are looking for a way to give your child a leg up developmentally, consider enrolling them in martial arts classes. Not only will they have a blast learning new techniques and making new friends, but they will also gain important skills that will benefit them both now and in the future.
