Good Habits Are Hard to Form, and Martial Arts Can Help

One of the biggest challenges as a parent is dealing with a child who is misbehaving, especially when it seems that the same patterns keep repeating. Oftentimes, the first impulse of a parent is to punish a child by taking away something he or she enjoys, such as a video game, a play date, or television and computer privileges. However, taking away something that can have a positive impact on your child’s behavior, such as martial arts classes, in the long run can be detrimental to your child’s development of positive behavior patterns.

At United Martial Arts Center, we want to stress that our martial arts classes are intended to help your child develop good habits; it is a place where we stress to our students the importance of improving their behavior and always trying their best. Missing classes, testing, or graduation ceremonies could cause a child to fall behind, become frustrated, and want give up. And the last thing we want is for a child to fall behind and suffer as a consequence.

We are here to help. If a child’s behavioral problems persist at home or at school, instead of taking away martial arts, we encourage parents to set up a special meeting with that child and an instructor. Reinforce the positive, not the negative.

UMAC emphasizes that TEAM stands for: “Together everyone achieves more!” We believe and practice that working together as a team, nothing can stop us!
