Social skills


Studies show that physical activity programs support the improvement of childhood cognition and brain health. Martial arts specifically is linked to increased processing speed and improved cognitive flexibility.

Research indicates that martial arts programs are helpful for improving the physical fitness of preschool and school children, especially for parameters such as cardiorespiratory fitness, speed, agility, strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance.

If your child isn’t comfortable participating in team sports, Krav Maga can provide a noncompetitive activity that raises the heart rate without putting them in potentially stressful situations.
