The Benefits of Virtual Martial Arts Training For Kids
Virtual classes are a way for people to learn via an online platform. They have become more and more popular due to the evolution of technology and the need for convenience.
Today, many people utilize online systems as a way to attend various levels of school, learn new skills, and join conferences. And now, companies such as 4GK Martial Arts in Patchogue are implementing online training modalities to stay connected to their students, offer an outlet for extra energy, and provide an opportunity to continue training.
In the new normal of our world today, it’s easy to become stagnant and passive.
By providing children with training online, 4GK Martial Arts is continuing to empower them to develop a growth mindset and come out even stronger on the other side. And since the curriculum we use, SKILLZ, is a child development course, children continue to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.
By utilizing the 8 Teaching SKILLZ and applying the D.O.S.E. Method of including activities that stimulate dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin, and endorphin secretion (the brain’s “happy chemicals”), instructors boost the student’s neural circuitry all the while helping them stay fit, active, and entertained.
While virtual classes and training are new for many, SKILLZ lays out the curriculum and class access in a way that is easy to use. By providing students and parents with At-Home Training Challenges and supplemental videos in our app, virtual live class access, and one-on-one training opportunities, the team at 4GK Martial Arts strives to cover all bases of student needs.
The best thing is this type of platform provides flexibility so the material can be accessed at a later time if a student misses class. By having all this information easily accessible, it also gives the students the ability to go back and review the information that may have been more of a challenge.
Today, more than ever before, children need to be assured that everything will be ok.
By keeping kids engaged with activities that part of their “normal” routine, parents can help their children deal with the current situation in a more productive way.
Along with this, the extra support that instructors provide helps parents understand that they are not alone.
Utilizing platforms such as SKILLZ, virtual martial arts training can give children the tools for success right from the comfort of their own home.
