There’s much more to the world of mixed martial arts than a couple of grapples and head kicks. As the name suggests, the practice of this sport is an art which means it requires a great deal of discipline, hard work and mental fortitude.
In return, it offers you a lifetime of opportunities and growth and there’s no better time to start than day one.
Kudo Malta offers the opportunity for your children to learn the Japanese art and all the benefits that come with it. Whether you’re drawn by its sweat-drenching exercises or self-discipline, committing your children to this world offers so many opportunities in others.
There’s much more to Kudo than you think…
1. It helps with concentration at school
If you succeed in Kudo, you’ll succeed in school. That’s because Kudo teaches the importance of listening and taking directions from those above you, necessary skills for the classroom environment.
2. Children will have a totally enlightened understanding of respect and humility
When your child commits to Kudo, they commit to a lifestyle of discipline and humility and will learn to treat everyone they meet with the utmost respect, no matter where they come from.
3. Kudo helps conquer anger and anxiety
Discovering your identity as a child can be difficult, leading to a lot of anger and anxiety throughout life’s journey. Thanks to Kudo, all woes come out on the mat and your child can return to everyday life clear-minded and focused knowing that they’ve had a healthy workout on the bags.
4. It’s a great, fun workout
Children are balls of energy and there’s no better way to release all that then on the mat with their friends. With a dedicated gym where they can train and have fun, children will finish each session sweaty and with a smile on their face.
5. Your kid will make a ton of friends
With lessons being held in groups, children will be put in an environment where they’ll have to partner up and make friends, which is a great way to boost confidence and help with those socialising skills that are lacking in our tech-savvy society.
6. Train in a safe and controlled environment
Kudo is a combat sport that needs to be practiced and perfected in a safe environment and under the proper guidance of professionals. Kudo Malta offers a top-class gym designed with safety in mind so that you and your kid can perform to the best of your ability knowing that you’re in good hands.
7. It teaches about anti-bullying
Kudo is far from an aggressive sport. Students are taught how to manage situations without the use of violence and ways to assess threats and redirect verbal assaults. That way they understand how to identify a bully and how to disarm them in a passive and non-confrontational manner.
BONUS: You can get your own workout in whilst you wait
Kudo Malta has a gym that allows parents to work out whilst they wait, to help them make the most of their own time. They also offer TRX, MFR and Functional Training Classes.
Kudo Malta offers classes and facilities for young ones to learn and grow from the sport in so many ways that a seven-point list doesn’t do it justice.
Their training grounds in Melita, Pembroke have classes running from Monday to Friday from 4 pm onwards and include sessions for kids as young as 5-years-old to teens and even adults.
For just €10 per class, your child can begin their journey to conquering life through the art of Kudo…
and they can get their first class for free.
Kudo Malta’s website offers a timetable in which you can pick and choose your classes and they even have a special section for Saturday classes too.
