Doctor Polucki Family Health Hour – June 2, 2013
Doctor Polucki had on some special guests on the program today. Nathan Hemmens and Sydney Albert from Santa Clarita Martial Arts came on the program to talk about how Martial arts training is excellent exercise for kids of any age this summer. The physical exercise combined with mental discipline can help focus energy and develop healthy life habits that go far beyond self-defense.
Here are some reasons you and your child should learn a martial art this summer:
Mental focus: In our instant-message culture, it’s amazing anyone can focus on anything longer than 140 characters. Martial Arts training teaches us to pay attention, focus on the task at hand and be flexible in our responses to unexpected situations.
Memorizing and retaining learned information and skills also translates into better grades and behavior at school and home.
Self-esteem: Martial Arts training emphasizes respect for self and others. Positive reinforcement and rewards for measurable improvement and behavior help people feel better about themselves.
Winning is not the goal. To the martial artist, becoming a better person is the way to win.
Confidence: People who study martial arts tend to have a lower level of anxiety, an increased sense of responsibility and are more socially tolerant. Through the exercises and self-discipline, we learn tools we can use to resolve stressful situations, and better yet, head them off.
Pre-hab: Martial arts exercise helps us avoid obesity and injury by learning balance, posture
and breathing while using all body parts simultaneously in a real-world exercise program.
