The Importance of Team Work Skills – I Love Martial Arts Georgia

picOn top of learning respect and self-discipline, a child learning martial arts also develops team work skills. This kind of skill becomes important in life because the need for teamwork pops up frequently. Whether it’s in school, work, or other special situations, learning to cooperate with others to accomplish a task is not easy; it can cause stress and bring out the worst in people. But with teamwork training infused in martial art programs like at Choe’s HapKiDo, it contributes positively to our future leaders.

In any given martial arts class, working with partners or in groups can play greatly in a student’s success. When it comes to alternating turns to hold up a kicking target for peers, the students listen to each other, help all to improve, and literally contribute a hand or two. Students may not realize this, but they continuously practice exchanging good etiquette with one another. And a lot of the times, having and being a good partner in all aspects of training makes a big difference in training.

Regardless of the level of difficulty of team work, having developed multiple skills that contribute to being an effective individual in projects makes associating with all kinds of people easier.

I Love Martial Arts Georgia – Teens and Karate

chkd5Reflecting back, growing up between the middle school/high school era challenged everybody – and it still does! Everything is changing during this phase: relationships, interests, hormones, emotions, beliefs, and much, much more. It’s a life defining moment. The teenage years can be brutal, but there are things that can be done to make them better.

1) Be Around Friends

A part of the teenage years is trying to find a place to belong. While some people make friends easily, others struggle with this area. By helping teens find their niche, they will naturally link with other people who share their interests.

2) Develop Self-Respect

One of life’s valuable lessons is learning how to respect yourself. As it is easier to listen to negative comments produced by others and self, it’s not healthy. When teens can develop that respect muscle, only good can from it. They learn to be fair and love themselves for how they are.

3) Be Around Positively Influential People

Good development can come from being around positively influential people. Teens are like plants – they will absorb everything that goes on around them. Place them around people like sport coaches or music teachers, and it will affect them positively during the teenage years.

All of these aspects are offered at Choe’s HapKiDo. We love to watch individuals grow and to be a part of their lives. Students may come into our studios with the day’s grit on their shoulders, but they leave our classes with a new boost of confidence. They know that they have found a community to relate to, and it’s a great place to let off steam!
