Apart from all the answers you can find on the Internet, we as parents can find the WHY factor in so many Sport diversities that we end up complaining more then having the joy of sharing a sport with our kids that is effortless and fun; good exercise and a fantastic tool for self-defense.
That is why KARATE is the WHY factor.
Karate is a fun way, for both boys and girls, to achieve fitness and focus. It actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.
In addition of helping kids to all of the physical benefits of exercise, including improved cardiovascular health and better strength and flexibility; it also emphasize self-control, including self-discipline and respect for yourself and others.
Many kids who started karate excel in school as they standout above the other kids with better concentration, focus capabilities, self-confidence and solving challenges. These qualities ensured better academic results, leadership, better friendships and of course a healthy lifestyle.
Above being a Karate Kid, Solis Ortus reward these kids by grading twice a year to achieve their higher belts and become the best kids they can be. Karate kids are well mannered and have immaculate etiquette, and therefore excel in society.
