What are the Benefits of Practicing Martial Arts?

There are many levels of Martial Arts you can take. 

Your child could do classes a few times a week to learn the art or if your child wants to compete they can learn to competitively spar by joining tournaments or a competitive team.

Many studios offer special programs (at an additional cost) which become their competitive team in a sense. For example, Impact Martial Arts does a special invite once a year to what they call their Elite Team. This is a group of about 20 students who are handpicked to go through special additional training.  They then compete in several tournaments throughout the year.

You may want your child to practice Martial Arts to provide them with an athletic outlet to build strength and keep them moving, but also teach them self-control, discipline, and focus. It also helps them build their self-confidence and resilience too!

If your child doesn’t love traditional team sports, this would be a great alternative.

How much does it cost?

Michele has found that the cost of most Martial Arts places was in the same ballpark.  Most have an “introductory price.”  

For example, Impact America Martial Arts has one that is $19 for a free uniform, white belt, and 6 classes. About 3 weeks of classes are for free. This is just enough for your child to know if this is something they like and would like to continue with. 

Then you will go into a monthly rate which usually will include classes anywhere between 2-4 times per week.  There is a separate charge for Belt Testing and Equipment like Sparring Gear.  In many cases, as you go up in the belt, the monthly fee does go up as well as the belt testing fee.

    Hi, I’m Abbie, super mom, and busy-bee who moved to Plano from London, England with my husband and 2 kids, Jesse and Lucy, in the Summer of 2013. Plano Moms was my lifeline when I arrived as I didn’t know anyone or anything about my new city that I now called home. When I’m not being a Plano Mom or being a taxi service to my kids, working out, cooking and reading (when I find the time!)
