7 Reasons Why Your Child Should Learn Wushu

By: Kingston & Timothy

1. Strengthen Body

Wushu provides a full-body workout which helps to improve your child’s overall fitness. The gradual process of stretching enhances your child’s flexibility while the physical exercises allow your child to gain more strength and better stamina.

2. Improve Coordination

Wushu involves a wide range of body movements which require the head, hands and legs to coordinate at the same time. Training for such complex movements improves your child’s coordination ability, which can be applied to other sports and activities.

3. Learn Self-Defence

Derived from the traditional Chinese martial arts, Wushu is a system of defence and attack. Regardless of the style or form, there is a purpose behind the movements which your child can apply and use for self-defence.

4. Develop Character

Wushu is not all about actions but it also advocates martial morality. Values such as respect, patience, perseverance, humility and integrity are emphasised during trainings to develop your child’s character which are applicable to everyday life.

5. Enhance Confidence

As a beginner, Wushu may seem difficult. With constant practice, it builds your child’s physical ability and mental strength to overcome challenges. This enhances your child’s confidence in knowing that anything can be achieved with determination and perseverance.

6. Appreciate the Chinese Culture

Wushu is more than just a sport. It is regarded as a representative of the Chinese culture. Your child will not only appreciate the different Wushu styles as a form of art, but also understand how the traditional heritage has influenced the lives of people across generations.

7. Build Relationships

Being a widely practiced sport, your child will not only get to interact with students from around the country but also foster relationships with fellow Wushu practitioners and enthusiasts across the world from all walks of life!
