Martial Arts is a sport that has been around for a while but has grown in popularity over the last few years. Kickboxing, Karate, Taekwondo, Jiu Jitsu and Self Defense classes and instruction is now in the spotlight for kids as well as adults. Different people attend classes for different reasons such as health and fitness, a good cardio workout or to improve on discipline.

Some parents have found great value by having their kids join martial arts facilities and classes. In an interview with Aaron Johnson, chief instructor and owner of Achievement Martial Arts in Valparaiso Indiana, he explained why this is.

Aaron runs a martial arts instruction facility that is focused on teaching the fundamentals of martial arts and he offers classes from ages 3 and up for kids as well as classes for adults.  Aaron went on saying that some of the main core values of martial arts are based on life skills, integrity, confidence, discipline, focus, and respect for yourself and for others.

The Me Gang attended a few of his martial classes for kids that ranged in ages from 5 to upper teens and I can honestly say that integrity and discipline are a main focus in his classes.  There is a real family friendly atmosphere when you are there and many parents stay to watch as their kids are taught some fundamental skills, important moral lessons as well as the feel of achievement.

Micah Moore, an instructor at Achievement Martial Arts, is a great example of what type of character can come out of someone that has made this sport a way of life. You can tell right away that he enjoys his job yet still loves to work with kids but takes his skills quite seriously.
