Will Karate make my kid violent? – Fred Mergen

One of the questions I get is will karate
or martial arts make my child violent? The answer is no. It will teach your child
how to properly channel that anger where it needs to go, maybe focus on hitting the pads
or focus on doing homework or concentrate on something else. The thing is as an instructor
we always reinforce karate is used for self defense and self defense only. If we see a child that is starting to get
angry and is starting to use karate in the wrong way we sit them down right away and
reinforce what we’ve been teaching them. And with the help of the parents and the instructors
together working as a team your child will never use karate in a violent manner.
