If you’re a parent looking for extracurricular activities for your kids, you seem to run into the same options…music and sports. Personally, I was searching for an activity for my kids that wouldn’t take over my weekends and would teach them life lessons they could carry with them for the rest of their lives. That’s how I stumbled upon PREMIER MARTIAL ARTS in Sanford, FL. I never considered karate as an option, but a few of the other kids at school were participating so we decided to just try it! If my kids didn’t like it, we would keep searching.
The staff was so welcoming and helpful in answering all our questions. The location we chose was near the school and had a great schedule – only twice a week! My kids got their uniforms, belts, and assignments and were ready to go.
After the first few classes, I realized that this was so much more than learning self-defense and exercise. There was a component that these instructors added that emphasizes self-discipline and strengthening of the mind! Karate practices develop composure, a clearer thought process, deeper insight into one’s mental capabilities, and more.
Here are my top 5 reasons to enroll your child in Karate at Premier Martial Arts in Sanford, FL:

As my kids practiced the basics of karate, I noticed that they were building reflexes to stand up to any threat. Self-defense maneuvers are a key skill, and I won’t lie – I was taking some notes for my own self-defense knowledge! When my children are ever confronted by bullies (god forbid), the techniques they learn at Premier Martial Arts will give them the ability to defend themselves.
My kids are at that delicate age, just before 10 when they are really figuring out who they are. Confidence is key at this stage. While they learn defense in karate, it gives them confidence to stand up or speak up when they need to. In classes, the instructors provide continual encouragement and feedback that seems to build my kids’ self-confidence levels!
Premier Martial Arts awards belts for improved skill. The skills are not only physical – they also encourage leadership, self-respect, and respect for others. This is the kind of character I want to encourage in my own children.
I quickly figured out that karate is not a sport. It’s like this style of physical and mental challenge. My kids have to be fully committed in class and home practice to excel. As a result, the self-discipline developed is very obvious in the first couple of weeks of classes!
Promotes a Healthy Body & Exercise Regimen
Regular physical activity of any kind will help kids develop and maintain healthy habits and respect for their bodies. A 45-minute class twice a week is sufficient to meet the US Department of Health and Human Services’ recommendations for physical activity. It also helps them get out any pent-up energy, and they are SO ready for bed on karate days!
So if you’re searching the internet for what after-school activity is right for you, I encourage you to try a couple of classes at Premier Martial Arts in Sanford, FL. USE MY DISCOUNT REFERRAL CODE: MEGFORIT : https://premiermartialarts.com/florida-sanford/
