The Benefits of Martial Arts

Many thanks to our partners at ATA Black Belt Academy in Powell for providing this content.

ATA Black Belt Academy is a place where young people grow their self-confidence and learn martial arts (improving motor skills, memory, social skills, and more) in a fun, safe, and stress-free environment designed for children. At ATA Black Belt Academy, even the preschool children practice life skills such as courtesy, respect, honesty, and self-control. Most children adopt these life skills quickly and use them inside and outside the martial arts school – at home, school, play, and elsewhere. Teachers often remark on the positive differences they observe! Self-reliance and dependability are traits highly valued in our society – and are fundamental goals for students in our Tiny Tigers and Karate Kids programs.

ATA Black Belt Academy serves the local Powell & Dublin communities with the best Karate classes in the region and state. The Tiny Tiger and Karate Kids programs are defined by age appropriate programs and classes specifically designed to promote physical development while expanding the mental capabilities of children. Guiding, gauging, and rewarding results, and establishing goals within the program carry over to many other areas in the students’ lives. Dedication, focus and effort towards completing an activity are important pillars of the

In today’s environment, many children are used to instant gratification. Children with a martial arts background, however, are continuously reminded of the rewards gained by seeing a task through to completion. Getting your child off the couch and away from the electronic device can be a difficult task. Martial arts is a great way to discourage against a sedentary lifestyle.

It would be unfair to think martial arts is only what appears in the movies. Martial arts discourages physical violence and actually promotes the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.

Martial arts is structured around various colored belts, each color representing a different level of achievement. When a child strives to achieve their goals through martial arts, they are learning valuable life lessons. Our students experience confidence building through our martial arts program. This is achieved by reaching goals and learning new moves in a fun and safe environment.

There are very few things that a child does alone when attending a martial arts class. Many skills are taught through group and partner work. This instills the importance of teamwork onto your child, while also teaching new

Our students learn through repetition individually and with partners in diverse, practical applications of technique realistic scenarios. Other benefits of training in our program include the development of skills that help in managing conflicts, reducing stress by releasing tension, and resisting temptations that commonly occur in modern daily life. Classes offer so much more than just kicking and punching at ATA Black Belt Academy. Our martial arts
classes give your child the profoundly important ability to gain self-confidence while improving personal safety and physical, mental, emotional, and social capacities.

Our motivated martial arts students are provided with all the tools necessary to enhance the body’s basic functions such as increased flexibility, core strength, and endurance. Self-defense is taught in a safe, enjoyable environment that emphasizes the values and practical application of martial arts prowess that could one day save a life. Successful students dedicate themselves to pursuing mastery of the martial arts techniques, life skills, and leadership traits. Here at ATA Black Belt Academy we strive to help our students achieve “personal victory” in martial arts and in life. It is not hard to understand why so many people train under the direction of award-winning Nationally Certified Instructors at ATA Black Belt Academy.

While our specialty is our Karate Kids and Tiny Tiger programs, our academy is not just for kids. If you are an adult looking to burn calories, look and feel younger, and get in the best shape of your life, look no further! Our adult program can help you achieve all of these goals, and more! By learning martial arts, you will both improve your mental health, as well as your physical health.
