When you see movies involving martial arts, you can’t help but admire their physical strength, ability, and skill.
No wonder it is one of the most sought-after sports. Seeing martial arts just makes you want to try it out too. However, it’s also common for parents to worry for their kids before they decide to enroll them in martial arts.
Will martial arts be good for kids, or will this make them violent?
It’s a common misconception that martial arts can cause a child to bully others. This is not true, in fact, aside from learning martial arts, kids also learn discipline, respect, sportsmanship, and can even build character.
Martial art teaches a person about:
Respect for one another – from listening to your instructors to learning how to pay respect.
Discipline is an art. Martial arts is not about violence. It’s about discipline. Given that you are equipped with the ability to fight also equals for you to have fair judgment and self-control.
Healthy mind and body. With martial arts, you are fit, agile, and healthy. Your body is also in tune with your mind.
Martial arts is a great way to relieve stress. Kids also face stress, that’s why as early as possible if they want to try out martial arts – let them be. It will be a great way to reduce stress.
Like any other sports, you need to be dedicated to the type of martial arts that you will choose. It will be a tough journey, and there will be times where your body just hurts, and you no longer want to do it, but if you are determined, you will succeed.
Just like brothers Noah and Aidan Fort.
Last January 2020, Nathan Fort posted a video of his sons Noah and Aidan Fort during their martial arts demo for San Benito High School in Hollister, CA.
The video starts as Noah, 16, and his little brother Aidan, 14, perform an awesome demo.
The first part of the video shows them giving respect to one another and to their audience. Then, we see them showing their agility and strength. Their moves are swift yet strong.
We then see Aidan as he wows the audience with his skill with his sword. The audience was so lively too, they would cheer whenever they see something awesome.
Then it was Noah’s turn as he uses his “nunchaku” to show his agility and power. As early as five, Noah began his martial arts journey along with his family members.
The Fort family is known for their amazing martial arts skills.
In fact, they all belong to WCWMA or West Coast World Martial Arts. They also often go to events and demos such as this one. They are also seen to be a part of Ernie Reyes’ West Coast World Martial Arts, to which their amazing videos are available through their social media accounts.
Now, back to the video, we see Noah rocking his performance. He’s serious and very good with what he is doing. The music also blends well with their performance.
Then, it was Aidan’s turn again. We see him holding a “kama” and start his very scary but amazing act. For his age, he is definitely very good with martial arts.
The last part shows Noah again with his “bo” as he starts to wow the audience again. Both brothers are using different weapons but they are both doing an amazing job.
They are very serious with their martial arts, and that’s why they are so good at it.
Finally, they bow again as a sign that they are done with their demo, and everyone was amazed by the brother’s performance.
Learning martial arts is a choice. It gives you so many benefits and strengths, but before deciding to join or sign up, you need to make sure that you really want it bad enough.
Together, they have their own social media accounts showing how martial arts has changed their lives.
You can also see the whole family showcasing their martial arts talents here.
