Riskier Play in Kids Martial Arts
A big part of the Kids Martial Art program at FightClub is the concept of play. An how important it is for kids to learn and through play. From my experience the riskier the play the better the learning.
Safeguarding children by encouraging them to take risks may seem counterintuitive, but you may be more convinced after watching this wonderful episode of the Nature of Things called The Power of Play it sheds light on the hidden benefits of doing one of the most fun, and often undervalued, activities: just playing around.
With all we learn about the importance of play, it’s no wonder that there’s a growing number of experts, who are pushing for more play for children — specifically, more “risky play” letting our kids engage in freer, play is one of the best things we can do to keep them safe.
