But especially if your child is about to take up karate here at Karate Atlanta or any other studio, it is important they know that it won’t only help them become a better athlete, but a better human being. Here are 5 life lessons kids can learn from The Karate Kid.

Take a Stand

When Mr. Miyagi asks Daniel if he wanted to start learning karate, he responded with, “I guess so.” Mr. Miyagi told him that it’s fine to walk down the right side of the road and it’s fine to walk down the left side of the road. But if you walk down the middle, you’ll eventually get squished.It’s important to make a decision and stick by it, constantly striving to accomplish your goals and stand up for what you believe in.

Women have some specific disadvantages when they are in public. It is difficult to acknowledge this, but having full awareness that you have a greater chance than a man does of being victimized in public helps you to make bold steps to address this issue and protect yourself. While none of us want to believe that we may have to defend ourselves against a harasser, attacker, or other aggressive offender, it is important for all of us to defend ourselves. Women have even more of a reason to do so. Thankfully, Alpharetta self-defense for women can be taught with close instruction, detailed demonstration, practice, and complex techniques in a formal setting.

If you are a woman or are concerned about the safety of your female friend, wife, girlfriend, sister, or daughter, then take note of the following reasons why women must know some form of self-defense such as karate:

Posted: December 09, 2015

It is never easy to see your child going through major life struggles. Sadly, one of the most common issues facing young children at school is bullying. The negative physical and emotional repercussions of this kind of treatment can lead to lasting harm. We at Karate Atlanta have some tips for you if your child is being bullied.

Get All the Facts

With the term “bullying” being thrown around so much, some people are accused of being bullies who really aren’t. If your child claims to have been bullied, make sure to get all the facts of the situation. Find out if your child had shown any signs of aggression before the bad behavior began. Find out who was involved and what caused the altercations. The more you know about the situation, the better equipped you will be to handle it in a healthy way.

The Martial Arts are widely know for their strength and discipline, but here at Karate Atlanta, we like to make sure our students know about the beauty of these skills as well. When you take Martial Arts classes in Alpharetta, you will be enjoying the beauty of movement, the beauty of discipline, the beauty of a new culture, and the beauty of deeper bonds.

The Beauty of Movement

There is something in the movements of Karate and Taekwondo that are inherently beautiful. Of course, they are strong and impressive. These are movements of battle and war and they are meant to be intimidating, which they are. The beauty of the movements comes in seeing how much discipline and control it takes to complete these moves.
