Does Your Child Need Help Focusing and Concentrating?

Does your child have trouble concentrating on his home work? Do you find your child with a dreamy expression on his face when he is supposed to be studying? Children are beginning to explore the world around them. They are learning to think and analyze the cause and effect. Things that may seem mundane to the adult eye are new and wonderful for children. Therefore, they tend to be distracted by the things and happenings around them. However, there are many things you can do to help your child to attain a better concentration levels. One great way is children’s martial arts and karate classes.

• Set a routine. Set aside a specific time for waking up, having breakfast, and going to school, playtime, study time and dinner. Once your child establishes a routine, he will find it easier to concentrate on his work because he knows that this is the time you have allotted for work and nothing else.

• Make sure that the room in which your child sits down to study and do his homework, is one where there is no distraction. Let him read aloud if he feels it will help him from becoming distracted.

• Don’t let younger siblings, especially infants play near the room where your school going child studies. Their cries and infant babble may be a big distraction for your child.

• Look up the topic which your child is working on and capture his interest by sharing interesting and informative facts with him.

• Make dull topics interesting by playing quizzes and memory games.

• If your child feels sleepy or hungry, he may not be able to concentrate well so make sure he is not hungry or tired.

• Sometimes children tend to lose interest in a particular subject when they fail at it. Encourage your child to persevere. For this, you must show him that you have full confidence in his abilities and that you will help him in any way you can.

• If your child needs extra help, offer to help him out or arrange for tuition. Once he begins to understand and master the subject, he will begin to concentrate on his work.

• It is a good idea to let your child study along with his peers who are good academic performers. By doing this, your child can pick up tips and ideas from his friends.

• Be patient when you deal with your child. Yelling at him or scolding him when your find him distracted will only serve to make him frustrated.

• Let your child take short breaks while studying. This will help your child to refresh his mind and memory. Let him take a 10 minute break after 1 or 2 hours of studying.

There are several activities which can help to improve your child’s concentration.

Here are a few:
– Board games and card games demand concentration, and engaging in them will improve your child’s concentration levels.
– Read a story to your child and ask him questions related to it. This will help sharpen his memory too.
– Ask your child about his day. This way, he will make an attempt to recall the events and actions of his day and this in turn will help improve his memory and concentration.
– Count numbers or their multiples and skip one or two in between. Ask your child to find the missing number.
– Strange as it sounds, tongue twisters also help improve concentration. Your child has to listen with great attention to decipher the tongue twister you say. This will teach him to concentrate.

And finally Children’s Martial Arts and Karate Classes. Many health care professional now recommend children’s martial arts and karate classes to help kids improve their focus and concentration. For great children’s martial arts and karate classes find the Premier Martial Arts school near you.

Commit to Confidence for Your Child in 2016


  1. Good Finding. Our instructors are taught to be “Good Finders”. They are constantly looking for opportunities to praise and complement our students. Instead of always pointing out what a student is doing wrong, we are always trying to point out what they do right! This approach to teaching motivates the children though continuous positive energy.
  2. We Give A’s First. Our Instructors “Always Give an A First”. Our instructors at Premier Martial Arts understand that by complimenting children for their efforts, not just results, no matter how minor, motivates a student to try that much harder. Trying harder brings the child even better results and those results will develop true confidence. Then the cycle repeats.
  3. Belt Ranking. Premier Martial Arts has a unique way of setting goals and showing the progression of those goals, and that is though our Belt Ranking system. A beginning student starts as a white belt and moves though goals of different color belt ranks as they meet different physical, mental and curriculum requirements. This goal setting/learning and rewarding/goal accomplishment system rewards children for their efforts and progress and developments a strong foundation of confidence and continue to grow and grow.
  4. Self Defense. Children develop confidence at Premier Martial Arts though our self-defense instruction. In is no secret that children that have a sense of well-being and security are confident and happy. Self-defense training is part of every class a child takes at Premier Martial Arts.
  5. Fitness. With the childhood obesity rates skyrocketing in the U.S. It has never been more important that children learn and develop positive habits of nutrition and fitness. Beside health concerns for a child’s future, it is important to understand that a negative self-image is the main “killer of confidence.” Sadly our society continues to put more and more emphasis on how a person looks on the outside than what kind of person they are on the inside. How a child thinks about themselves is directly related to how they feel about themselves. If they think they are overweight and un- attractive, then this attitude will likely result in decreasing their confidence and self-worth. At Premier Martial Arts, we teach our children valuable life lasting lessons on nutrient and fitness. Through our training we develop happy, healthy, confident, successful children!

3 Reasons Why Your Child Should Take Martial Arts

Top 3 Reasons Why Any Child Should Take Martial Arts Lessons

1.  They will be more active!

One of the most obvious reasons to get your child into Martial Arts is to keep them active throughout the week.  With all the health issues going on in today's time, children need physical activity.  Unfortunately with budget cuts around the country, a lot of schools no longer have a PE program for grade school students.  What better way to keep your child healthy and active then Martial Arts training!

2.  They'll learn to take hits!

Through your child's Martial Arts training, they'll learn what it means to take a hit.  Whether it's a literal blow or just the disappointment of getting a bad grade, they'll learn the right steps in dealing with whatever situation.  Part of growing up is learning that we all take hits through life. 

3.  They will gain self-confidence and self-respect!

We want kids to learn to be confident in themselves and turn into leaders as they grow up.  Martial Arts training teaches children how to believe in themselves and how to show respect not only to others, but to themselves.



Reflecting Back on Summer Events

Over the summer we had some awesome events and met some really awesome people.  One of the biggest events we were a part of over the summer was the Family Fun Festival in Middleboro.  Our very own Cross Kick student Kendra Pittsley is a 29 year old brain cancer patient put on this benefit event for cancer research.  We were fortunate enough to have our staff and demo team there to support Kendra.
