In reality, many parents that have children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), report great success with these kid friendly martial arts programs because the self-control and concentration requirements are exactly the skills ADHD kids need help with most.
A typical martial arts for kids in Raleigh class begins and ends with a bow to the teacher, or master. After warm ups, students then practice their kicking, punching, and blocking skills which all require concentration and strict attention. Some research has even shown that these types of kids classes can have great benefits beyond the gym, and even carry over to the classroom and home life.
