Traditional Martial Arts Improve Focus in School Children: Unlocking the Power of KickFit 


As parents, we all want the best for our children, physically, mentally, and emotionally. And what if I told you that there’s a powerful tool that can enhance your child’s self-regulation, boost their confidence, and set them up for success? Enter KickFit Martial Arts—a dynamic blend of traditional and contemporary martial arts that goes beyond kicks and punches. Let’s dive into the fascinating study conducted by researchers from the University of Surrey and discover why KickFit might be the perfect choice for your child. 

The Study: Taekwondo and Focus 

The University of Surrey embarked on an 11-week journey with 240 primary school students aged 7 to 11. These young learners were split into two groups: the Taekwondo experimental group and the control group. Here’s what they discovered: 

  1. Attentional Capacity Boost: Children who participated in Taekwondo classes showed better attentional capacity. Imagine your child being more focused during homework time or while listening to their teacher in class. Taekwondo does that! 
  1. Executive Attention: The Flanker Task—an assessment of executive attention—revealed that Taekwondo students outperformed their peers who had regular PE classes. Executive attention helps kids filter distractions and make better decisions. A valuable skill, right? 
  1. Reduced Conduct Disorder Symptoms: Taekwondo didn’t just improve attention—it also reduced symptoms of conduct disorders. Imagine a more respectful, disciplined child who handles challenges with grace. 

Why KickFit? 

Now, let’s connect the dots. Why should you consider KickFit Martial Arts for your child? 

  1. Self-Control and Respect: KickFit classes emphasize self-control, respect, and discipline. Your child learns to follow instructions, respect authority, and manage impulses. These qualities spill over into their studies, helping them complete assignments on time and make responsible choices. 
  1. Boosted Confidence: Martial arts build confidence. As your child masters new techniques, their self-esteem soars. Imagine the pride they’ll feel when they nail that high kick or break a board! 
  1. Physical Fitness: KickFit keeps kids active. It’s not just about kicks and punches; it’s about building strength, flexibility, and overall fitness. Plus, it’s way more exciting than a treadmill! 
  1. Life Lessons: Beyond the kicks, KickFit teaches life lessons. Your child learns perseverance, resilience, and the value of hard work. These skills extend far beyond the dojo.
