Tackling low esteem...thoughts from Master Jeff Copp 7th Degree Blackbelt
Over-dependence, shyness, fearfulness, procrastination, negative self-talk and perfectionism are common signs a child lacks confidence.
In our classes we teach perseverance and try to instil an indomitable spirit. We work on how to channel adrenalin and teach life skills. Telling the child that while it is okay to feel such anxiety at times, they should not let it get in the way to success. We help them turn negatives into positives.
We teach children to learn from mistakes and by experiencing failures and disappointments they will develop the resilience to succeed later in life.
In Kickboxing we encouraging positive self-talk. If the child says he can’t do something, we encourage them to give in a try anyway and see how they do. When they succeed we ask why they were in doubt.
Martial arts has many benefits one of which is helping children overcome their lack of confidence.
