Balance and Posture – For many 3-5-year-olds, one of the skill sets that is often overlooked, but needs constant work and attention is balance and posture… basic skills necessary for almost any activity. Poor posture leads to cramped organs, improper breathing, and a whole host of other unhealthy bodily expressions.

As a Master Instructor and Manager of the PIT & Personal Defence Studios….I am rarely surprised by children and their behaviour , their quirkiness and thirst for learning has never changed in the almost 30 years of teaching for me. What has changed, is parents.


Unfortunately, almost all of the good stuff we teach to students you can’t see it, touch it or measure it, but the results will appear regularly throughout the rest of their life if you have enough faith and patience in your children. As a teacher I raise all students to be as strong/resilient & as flexible as bamboo. Our duty is to provide depth to the canvas of the individual’s character enabling them with all the tools to paint the best evolving picture of themselves. Not once did I mention the colour of a belt, or a Kick or a Punch...but yes this is the physical vehicle we use. As much as I would love to be on the floor for all classes, and all students, this is not possible...I am one person with a great team working with me. My role requires me to nurture all the students in our system this takes time, research and never-ending upgrades to fitness industry standards and environmental & societal change. To be the leaders in our field of education & development we need to be across and networking with a vast community to bring you the very best. I encourage everyone to have a chat with a Blackbelt, ask them why they continue to train, when they started. They are challenged by life just like you!


With a bloodcurdling cry, your 6-year-old leaps into the air in a karate kick, raising your hair and blood pressure simultaneously. Before you panic and pad the walls, try channelling this urge into a martial arts class. Some parents may think they also promote violence, but that's a myth, according to experts, in a quality school. The martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.

A typical hour-long class begins and ends with a bow to the teacher, or master. After a warm-up, students practice the art's particular skills, which may include kicks, punches and blocks. Each requires concentration and strict attention.

Progress is often marked by the belt system, which takes the beginner from a white belt through a variety of colours until black. Testing for each new level, generally every three months, in the lower ranks and longer for the higher ranks and is a good exercise in setting and achieving goals.

But, say experts, it's the respect kids learn, whether from bowing or standing still and waiting for the next command, that can be the most important benefit: It often carries over into school, helping to improve behaviour and even grades, according to recent research.

“The martial arts are ultimately self-knowledge. A punch or a kick is not to knock the hell out of the guy in front, but to knock the hell out of your ego, your fear, or your hang-ups.” 

- Bruce Lee
