One benefit is that you are able to teach them at an early age. Teaching your toddlers and preschoolers martial arts techniques at home is similar to teaching them the alphabet, shapes, and numbers before they are school age. It is a great primer to get them ready for what they will be learning and develops an early interest in the material.
Even if you child is enrolled in martial arts classes, home learning can help reinforce what they learn in class. Just as with homework, you can take an active roll in your child’s education.
Another benefit is the financial advantage. The only thing it costs to practice with your child is time; and that is time well spent. Martial arts schools can be expensive and you may feel that your child is too young or doesn’t have the attention span yet to truly benefit from paid lessons. At home you can tailor learning to your child’s specific needs.
Location and schedule are two more benefits to teaching your child at home. At home you can teach when it’s convenient for you and there is no traveling necessary.
The greatest benefit is the bond you form with your child. Practicing martial arts with your child can be a lot of fun and watching them learn the techniques you show them is extremely rewarding.
