Exceptional Kids Classes Now Offered in Morris County

PURE Denville Mixed Martial Arts now offers two youth programs geared toward children of different age groups. Both programs strike a balance between fun and learning. Students spend 45 minutes per class guided by knowledgeable professionals, immersed in a positive atmosphere, and engaged in healthy, active activities.

Boys and girls ages 4-7 can enroll in the Little Ninjas program. The Little Ninjas begin each class with a warm-up before moving on to martial arts drills such as shrimping. Easy-to-learn games introduce foundational skills as well teach students the importance of respect, discipline, patience, and other martial arts values. For young children, participating in active group sports such as Little Ninjas has been shown to improve cardiovascular health, balance, and mental concentration; help them become more courteous and respectful to adults; and encourage them to socialize in a fun and easy-going way with other children.

PURE’s Kids Jiu Jitsu is open to children ages 7-13 and, though it builds on Little Ninjas lessons, easily accommodates beginners anywhere in that age range. Students warm up before doing more complicated drills and playing more complex skill-building games. In addition, girls and boys with proficient skill participate in “live” rounds at the end of classes to test their newly-acquired knowledge against opponents their own age. Safety is always a priority; not only is the gym equipped with state-of-the-art equipment but students are taught when to tap out (and to stop immediately if their opponent taps). Some of the possible benefits of joining the Kids Jiu Jitsu class include raised self-esteem, better behavior, practical self-defense, and lowered risk of inactivity- and obesity-related diseases such as diabetes.

Most of all, a kids class at PURE is just a plain old enjoyable place to hang out. Children get to have fun while learning something new and being surrounded by instructors and fellow students who support and encourage them 100% – many of them say they feel right at home as soon as they walk through the door.

How martial arts training in Poughkeepsie can change your child’s life for the better

Martial arts offers kids physical fitness, regular exercise, strength building and a competitive outlet – however, martial arts goes beyond the bounds of regular sorts or activities. Martial arts instill a set of values, a code of conduct which should be used to guide one’s behavior. Values such as discipline, dedication and consistent effort are reinforced on a daily basis. Students are taught to confront their fears and work to overcome uncomfortable situations. For many kids being held down by someone bigger and stronger than them is nothing short of terrifying. Martial arts confronts that reality so often that students eventually find this once terrifying activity to be routine training. Studying, repetition and attention to detail are how the techniques are taught and drilled. Through this method kids are given a blue print for academic success. Additionally, etiquette, respect and humility are character traits which surround each and every lesson. Winning does not become the goal, but rather personal growth and self improvement. Where other coaches’ jobs end the martial arts instructor is just beginning. In the martial arts coaches will look at kid’s report cards, find out how they are behaving at home, address issues of bullying or low self esteem. Kids are taught how to look someone in the eye, how to give a firm handshake and how to properly address their elders.

If you live in Poughkeepsie, LaGrange, Pleasant Valley or Hopewell Junction and would like to give your child the benefits of martial arts training then check out Precision Mixed Martial Arts. Precision offers classes for kids age 7 and up. Precision MMA is now offering a FREE 30 Day Trial as well as a FREE introductory 1 on 1 lessons with one of our world class instructors.

Kids grow up in challenging times.  The growth of technology and the internet has changed their lifestyle and social interactions. Going outside to play and exercise has been replaced by sedentary habits such as video games and web surfing.  Obesity and diabetes were once unheard of in children, sadly they have in many cases become the norm.  The innocence of childhood is being replaced with cyber bullying, sexting, adult websites and other negative influences on a daily basis. Positive role models and healthy habits are important now more than ever.

Often times parents turn to team sports to help their children develop character and build physical attributes. However, more and more often they are left disappointed. Rather than focusing on building confidence and self esteem in their athletes coaches are only concerned about winning games. Kids in Poughkeepsie who are not naturally gifted are singled out and made to sit the bench if not cut from the team entirely. Rather than developing character traits of integrity, cooperation, creativity and honesty they are taught only to value victory.  Coaches feel their jobs end once players walk off the field and they do little to ensure their kids are succeeding elsewhere in life.

How about Martial Arts, like those at Precision MMA in Lagrangeville, NY?

Our kid’s martial arts programs in Poughkeepsie offer a strong alternative to the shortcomings of team sports. The clearest difference is with regards to involvement.  Every class each child participates through the duration of the class. Superstars do not receive preferential treatment and even students who are not naturally athletic participate fully and receive individual attention.

Self esteem and confidence are also cornerstones of our kid’s martial arts program in Poughkeepsie. Team sports often times do not develop confidence; they simply eliminate those that lack confidence through “cuts”.  Martial arts encourages the student each step of the way and has them confront real challenges such as standing up to bullies and peer pressure.  These experiences help the student grow as a person.  No one is “cut” simply because they aren’t naturals.

Life skills are another way martial arts training stands head and shoulders above team sports. Martial arts students are taught how to look someone in the eye and shake their hand, how to set goals and work towards achieving them.  It’s very rare that a baseball coach will ask to see his player’s report cards, but for martial arts that is the norm.  Martial arts training extends to every area of a child’s life and does not end once the student walks off the mat.
