Hocus Pocus or Focus? Helping Kids Develop the Ability to Focus Better
It’s not magic! Children can be intentionally taught how to focus better. The key is making the training fun and engaging so they want to learn.
Have you ever seen a child get distracted while playing video games? Or whether watching YouTube videos? Probably not! Why? The child enjoys doing these activities.
We focus using 4 key components: our eyes, our ears, our mind, and our body. Everyone has a dominate method for focusing. Some people are great using their ears and can remember everything some says. Others, watch and observe and are able to absorb the information being taught. In fact, observational learning is the most method most humans use.
But, imagine if you can enhance your child’s ability to focus using all 4 components of focus. As an adult, you understand there is a lot more to communication than the actual words being spoken. So being able to use all 4 components will greatly enhance your child’s ability to learn in school.
This will also have a direct impact on their self-confidence as child feel good about themselves when they are experiencing success.
Martial arts training is a great way to help a child develop better focus as well as discipline. At Quest Martial Arts Academy, our programs are intentionally designed to improve a child’s ability to focus using all 4 components while making the learning fun and engaging. The majority of our student’s don’t even know they are learning to focus better. They are just having fun learning.
Now, just like doctors, teachers, or car salespersons, not all are the same or have the same intentions. So, when looking for an academy always search for karate academy where you can go in watch a class, and experience the class before signing up. Watch the instructors and how the instructor teaches a drill. Watch the other students to see how they are responding to the instructor. Ask lots of questions about the teaching methodologies. Not all karate academies are the same be an informed consumer.
