The benefits of martial arts for children are widely known. They are clearly helpful for bullying and physical exercise. They can capture the imagination of your child while they teach discipline, self confidence, patience and perseverance, etc.
More so for partner practices such as Aikido, there are social benefits. Children become less shy and more assertive. They also develop friendships with other children who are learning the same lessons. The community aspects of martial arts training are important, so you should pay attention during the selection process.
