Proof That Martial Arts Training Helps Build Happier Kids

We don’t just want you to take our word for it. In fact, there’s plenty of solid research that proves martial arts training promotes better behavior and improved attitudes in school age children.

Here are just a few of the most recently published studies and articles describing the benefits of martial arts training for children:

  • A 2001 study published in the psychology journal Adolescence showed a vast improvement in good behavior and a noticeable reduction in violent behavior among children who took martial arts classes for just 90 minutes a week.
  • Another article published in Adolescence in 1998 described how martial arts programs decrease violent behavior in children and teens.
  • A recent study published in the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology showed that children who participated in martial art training had better behavior and higher scores on a mental math test.
  • The Magazine for Physical Therapy praised martial art training as a helpful activity for special needs children.
  • An article in the December 2002 issue of The International Journal of Contemporary Family Therapy recommended families take martial art classes because of the many positive effects martial arts training provides to family members.

As you can see, the evidence is conclusive – martial art training works! There is no other activity that has been proven to bring such a great improvement in the well-being of children. Now, just imagine what a difference our martial arts program will make in your own child’s life…
