If you’re looking for the very best martial arts training for your child, look no further. Karate for Kids Franklin Park is different. Very different. We are much more than simple kicking and punching. Instead, the character development that happens through martial arts training here at Karate for Kids Franklin Park is one of the biggest benefits you can ever give your child. Here are the five reasons Karate for Kids Franklin Park is different from the rest: Difference 1: Life Skills / Character Development Let’s face it: in today’s society, discipline is greatly lacking. Teaching discipline, respect and courtesy are cornerstones of our training here, and one of the major benefits of enrolling your child in Karate for Kids Franklin Park. We enforce — and teach — discipline by requiring students to “answer up”, say “yes, sir” or “yes, ma’am” when addressing other students, adults and instructors. Rest assured: within a short period of time, your child will be developing self-discipline, respect and courtesy you can only imagine! Difference 2: Coordination, Agility, Balance, Exercise Karate and Taekwondo are some of the best exercises available. The reason why is because they incorporate kicking as well as punching. Kicking works the large muscle groups of the lower body, legs and core and develops a student’s sense of balance. This increased balance pays dividends in other sports as well, such as basketball, football, baseball, soccer and many other sports. The particular style of Taekwondo taught here also increases your child’s coordination, body awareness, endurance, flexibility, power and greatly builds their strength. Giving your child a life-long skill such as Taekwondo helps get them excited about exercise and develops positive lifelong habits that will benefit your kids for a long, long time.
