Mixed Martial Arts In Benton AR : You Are Always Improving!

“I Feel Like I’m Getting Worse Every Time I Train !”

I hear a lot of people say this ( in particular many of my students at Revolution MMA in Benton, AR ). : Kids and adults alike.  I’ve heard it time and time again. You can see the discouragement on their faces when they express this. Some people even consider quitting. Chances are, at some point in your Martial Arts training you’ve felt this way. Don’t worry, we all have. It’s totally normal. And this blog is for you!

Now, first let’s talk about why you feel that way.  Here’s why: When you first start training, you feel pretty good. You hit the pad as hard as you can, you kick your opponent hard. The loud slap you hear coupled with your sudden shortness of breath makes you feel good. If you’re training Jiu Jitsu you’re probably doing a lot of grunting and pushing folks off of  you. You make sharp, jerky and strong movements, and when you squeeze the crap out of someone’s head with your leg scissor or headlock you feel like you’ve won. After all, that’s what most new students do: Try to win. That’s the point isn’t it?

Not exactly: Later on down the line, you should start trying to use the things you learn in class. You stop trying to throw super hard kicks and punches while the rest of your body flings all over the place with your chin sticking up as if it had a bullseye on it. If you do Jiu Jitsu, you stop trying to hold and bench press folks, and you start trying to relax and move. In other words, you’re trying to do the right moves the right way. You are concentrating on what your whole body is doing, and trying to make harmonious movements! Good job! When you start trying to actually use the techniques you learn during classes at Revolution MMA in Benton, you discover that you aren’t always good at them right away. You go from overpowering folks via strength to sometimes ending up in a less preferred position because you tried and failed at a technical escape.

This is about the time students come to us and say they feel like they are getting worse. The truth is, you aren’t getting worse at all. You are trying to use techniques you haven’t mastered yet. You are trying to do the right moves the right way, use technique instead of strength, and this is exactly what you should be doing while training Martial Arts!

Let me let you in on a little secret: Did you know it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill? That’s 10,000 jabs, 10,000 snake moves, 10,000 escapes, that’s a lot of time in the gym training isn’t it? !  That could amount to years if you think about it. Expecting to be good the first time you try is a lot of pressure.  This pressure causes some folks to feel a real let-down, and sense of defeat early on that leads to quitting. They essentially had unrealistic expectations, and fell short. You shouldn’t be feeling bad at all!

Let me put it in perspective: Think back to your early educational years. When you “graduated” elementary school and moved to middle school, you probably felt pretty good about your math skills. When you got to middle school math class, you head might have exploded! Did you get worse at math suddenly? Not really. You were just adding things to your knowledge database, and you have to practice in order for them to become easier.  About the time they got easier you moved to High School, then College. The cycle keeps repeating. It’s supposed to.

Here’s My Secret Recipe To Get The Fastest Results From Your Training at Revolution MMA Benton :

Mixed Martial Arts In Benton ARThere’s a saying that “practice makes perfect”, well in actuality, “perfect practice makes perfect”. As you mature in your training, don’t always try to win. Try to work on the things you learn, and add new techniques and combinations to your arsenal. Accept that you might not pull them off the first time. In fact, I’d recommend trying them out on people who are less skilled/ newer than you are. Once you have success against a lesser opponent, move up in skill level. As you work your way up, you’ll start to see you are improving. Start the cycle over again. Keep a training journal with notes of your combinations and moves you are trying to improve. Keep notes of your successes and failures, and review your notes regularly.  Additionally, watch matches and videos online, or via DVD. If you can stay and watch an advanced class at your gym. Visualization plays a huge role in your body’s ability to perform. If you can video your self training, do so, and review your videos on a regular basis. Take the notes in your journals and evaluate progress. Ask your opponents and coach for feedback. With this “recipe” you can have a constant evolution in your game plan, and rest assured that you are constantly improving your training  towards your end goal .

If You Really Want To Improve, Try Private Lessons:

During a private lesson, your coach will create a special blueprint just for your success. You can review your notes and videos with your coach and listen to an advanced perspective on your performance. You can discuss any problems you are having, and get precise help to fix those problems. You will have a time dedicated just to you and your success. In fact, it’s proven that people who train private lessons get better faster.  1 private lesson can teach you more than 1 month of group classes.

Kids Martial Arts In Benton, AR : What Should Your Child Be Working On?

Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR : What Should Your Child Be Working On?

“What should kids do outside of Class To Improve Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR ?” 

This is a common question I get from a lot of parents.  Many of the parents who sign their child up for Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR want to help their child get better outside of class. Additionally many children desire to practice at home, but are not sure what to work, being that they don’t have a proper partner or teacher present.  The good news is that the answer is fundamentally simple, and you can help your child improve his/ her Jiu Jitsu skills at home!

In 2006 I began training under the legendary strength and conditioning coach John Davies. Through my training under him I have had the opportunity to learn the soviet sports model of training. Additionally I have been introduced to and trained with other experts in the soviet sports model. In my own time I have done some research in to their habits of building athletes from childhood.  Jory and I have used this exact model to bring about our own success.

In the beginning, your child need not work specifically on Jiu Jitsu drills at home. You probably feel as “akward” trying to do Jiu Jitsu with your child at home as your child might on his/ her first day of trying classes for Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR . Don’t worry. You don’t have to try to remember all of the drills we do in class, or do any “funny” moves!

The fundamental development of a good athlete begins with a few skills, and it’s crucial that you develop these skills within your child:

  • 1. Kicking
  • 2. Throwing
  • 3. Running
  • 4. Jumping

These are 4 simple skills that you can focus your work with your child at home to improve his/ her skills for Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR ! The better your child becomes at these exercises, the better he/ she will be down the line with regards to his/ her training. Actually, working on these skills will help your child in any Martial Art or sport, not just Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR !

Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR

Kids Martial Arts In Benton, AR

I would highly recommend you take the time to do these activities with your child on a regular basis. In today’s society, the tradition of family is often lost. There is no dinner time, nor is there much social/ bonding time. It’s proven that due to the internet and social media, people are talking less and becoming more and more disconnected. Use this time to not only help your child improve his/ her skill, but to develop a bond with your child. This can be a nightly activity, or something your family does every weekend. You can include your child’s friends, and your entire family.

 

There are so many things you can do that incorporate these 4 skills:

  • Soccer
  • Baseball
  • Football
  • Basketball
  • Dodgeball
  • Kickball
  • Frisbee
  • Trail Runs
  • Hop Scotch
  • Jumping on the trampoline
  • Jumping rope
  • Throwing/ Skipping rocks on the pond

These are some games you can use to develop these fundamental skills with your child as your child begins training Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR .  Keep in mind that these are fundamentals. As your child progresses, in age and skill set, your child will need to do more specific things to develop these skills. At a certain age (I will withhold this exact number) your child will need to begin to specialize in his/ her chose sport. But these skills must be developed prior to specialization. This is a good place to start.  But don’t get me wrong, your child should start training Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR as early as he/ she desires! But before the age of specialization, when your child really focuses on the sport, these skills must be developed.

Using this opportunity to have “family exercise” with your child will not only increase your child’s skill set, but allow you some time to have a much needed talk. I’d suggest you talk about a few things:

  • 1. Let your child know your family’s rules about his/ her training:  Only you can tell your child when it is acceptable to use his/ her skills. Now that your child is training Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR , he/ she has special knowledge. I would be remiss not to tell you that your child has the potential to hurt someone else. It’s crucial you discuss this with your child.  You want  your child to be safe, but you don’t want your child to become a bully. Judgement skills take time for a child to acquire. Discuss it!
  • 2. Get to know your child’s friends: In my past blog I made a mention: “If you child hangs around 9 drug dealers, he’ll be the 10th.” Do you know who your child’s hanging around with? Now’s a good time to find out. Let your child invite his/ her friends. Additionally talk to your child about bullying and peer pressure. Let your child know that it is something most everyone experiences in life, and that you are available to talk to 24/7. Make sure you child doesn’t feel the need to hide problems, or be embarrassed.
  • 3. Talk with your child about healthy eating and exercise: Let your child know that these exercises are helping his/ her improve for Jiu Jitsu Class! Encourage your child to make healthy eating choices for performance.
  • 4. Be a good role model: If you don’t exercise yourself it’s time to make a priority! Set a good example and take care of yourself so you can watch your kid grow up. The great news is if you feel out of shape, or like you can’t keep up with your child, the good news is you can with these simple exercises. You will both benefit, so give it a try.
  • 5. Have fun! Kid’s get bored easy, so here’s another secret: The more fun you can make of exercise, the more your child will do it.

Additionally, while your kid is training Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR , we will be enforcing all of these things in our classes! We’ll talk with your child about his/ her training, about developing healthy friendships and relationships, we’ll provide good role models, and teach healthy eating habits. Most importantly, we’ll have fun!

When your child signs up to train Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR , or anywhere else, It’s my hope that your child doesn’t just learn a set of skills, but has a better quality of life due to his/ her Martial Arts training! Training Martial Arts was the best decision my parents made for me. I got to see the world, compete internationally, and I’m successful in life.  Our program for Kids Martial Arts in Benton, AR can help you do the same for your child, and with our proven life skills development program, we’ll put your child on the path to success fast.

Kids Martial Arts Benton Helps Kids in School!

Kids Martial Arts Benton Helps Kids in School!

Behavioral and emotional problems in kids are all too common these days. A 2005 report shows that nearly 5 percent—of children are reported by their parents to suffer from definite or severe emotional or behavioral difficulties. These are problems that can interfere with their family life, their ability to learn, and their formation of friendships.  If that were not bad enough, these problems usually persist throughout a child’s life and carry in to adulthood. What that ultimately means is that these problems can affect your child’s chances of success in life.

Kids Martial Arts Benton

 

 

What if I told you I had a solution to your problems?

 

A way to ease your fears?

 

 

Let me take a minute to share with you an interview from one of the kids in my Kids Martial Arts Benton Classes. This is Rylie and she has been training Kids Martial Arts Benton for almost 2 years. Rylie is a model of hard work and discipline in class. I’d even go as far to characterize her as an “overachiever”. You will notice in our interview Rylie makes several mentions of how training Kids Martial Arts Benton has helped her in school.

 

Kids Martial Arts Benton can help kids with a number of problems: social and in their studies.

All kids, and kids with behavior problems in particular, have trouble making friends. A child with behavioral problems tends to feel isolated, misunderstood, and lonely. He/ She may be ostracized by other children for his/ her behavior. Wouldn’t it be nice if your child could have a place to go that helped him/ her make positive, lasting relationships with peers? Not only will this benefit your child in the short term, but throughout your child’s adult life, he/ she will have to know how to form and build positive peer relationships for success.  Rylie made mention that her training helps her get closer to people.  This is one of the great benefits that comes with Kids Martial Arts Benton !

Kids with behavioral problems not only have trouble making friends, but they may experience a lot of social conflict.  In fact we all do, but kids with behavioral and emotional problems are likely the brunt of bullying and taunts from peers.

Do you remember what it was like to be bullied in school? 

Do you remember the names of school bullies? 

Perhaps you remember bullying yourself?

It hurts, and to a child who has problems handling their own emotions, it can be disastrous. It can break them in to emotional pieces. Kids Martial Arts Benton helps kids learn how to deal with these problems. First, kids learn common life skills such as courtesy, respect, kindness, and generosity.  They learn how to work with a partner and be a good teammate.  Kids also learn how to avoid physical confrontations through their own behavior and through talking. Kids Martial Arts Benton teaches kids the right things to do and say in order to diffuse a heated conversation. In the case of a confrontation, kids learn to react with reason and not with emotion. They learn to think through their choices and be prepared for consequences.  Kids Martial Arts Benton also teaches kids the right skills to keep themselves safe!

As Rylie also mentioned, Jiu Jitsu helps her calm herself down and relieve stress from the school day.  Kids with emotional and behavioral problems do not deal with stress well. They may overreact to things we would otherwise consider insignificant. Stress can affect a child’s ability to focus and perform in school. Learn Martial Arts can help your child calm down when faced with a stressor. In addition the physical exercise is proven to elevate mood and reduce depression.

Kids Martial Arts Benton helps kids with their studies by giving them alternative means to look at a problem.  Rylie mentions that when her teacher asks her questions, she can relate it to Jiu Jitsu and answer. When learning Jiu Jitsu, kids learn about angles, leverage, and all sorts of other things they will learn about in math, geometry and other classes in school. They learn how to position a joint to make proper leverage or to escape. They learn which angles help make a technique more efficient.  When these kids think about angles in their geometry classes, they can most definitely relate it to Jiu Jitsu.  Math isn’t the only subject kids learn about. They’ll learn about geography as they learn the history of their art. They’ll learn a bit of foreign language and culture, as they meet the guests who come in for special camps.

Most importantly they learn critical thinking skills. Critical thinking is defined as

The process or method of thinking that questions assumptions. It is a way of deciding whether a claim is true, false, or sometimes true and sometimes false, or partly true and partly false.

Kids learn to test a hypothesis and theory, and they learn to question what they assume to be true or false. You see, they practice the techniques they learn daily in a live setting. They learn to make their own combinations of moves, anticipate a persons reaction and plan their reaction accordingly. They also have to react quickly and make a new plan of something doesn’t go as initially planned. All of this entire process takes a split second for a seasoned practitioner, but as kids learn this process, they are learning valuable physical and mental skills. Kids also learn how to deal with others and others’ behavior. They learn that they can’t always predict a persons reaction, but they can control how they react to a situation and how it affects them. Kids who train Kids Martial Arts Benton improve their critical thinking in the process. One they are able to do this, they are able to use these critical thinking skills anywhere in life, even in school.

Did you notice Rylie is very well spoken? While some of the kids were a bit camera shy at first, I noticed later that they were all well spoken. Kids Martial Arts Benton gives kids the confidence to speak in front of others, and feel good about themselves. By watching these kids, you can tell they have confidence. That confidence carries over to many other areas of life, and will be a determining factor in their success. Tessas and Samuels also experienced a significant boost in confidence with their training!

Wouldn’t it be great if your child could experience all of these great benefits in one place?

“If I try to get help, it will get worse,” she wrote in her suicide note to her family. “They are always looking for a new person to beat up, and they are the toughest girls. If I ratted, they would get suspended, and there would be no stopping them. I love you all so much.” ~Globe and Mail.

This was a young girl’s suicide note to her parents.  Take a minute right now and put yourself in her parents shoes. Imagine walking in and finding a note like that and a gruesome scene.  I don’t mean to be graphic, but this is a real problem.

Kids Martial Arts Benton Helps Prevent Bullies 

Do you remember being bullied in school? 

 

Do you remember how it made you feel? 

 

Do you remember the names of bullies from your school? 

 

Do you remember bullying anyone yourself? 

 

 

Chances Are Your Child Is Being Bullied At School! 

The world we live in teaches kids that violence is the answer, it’s everywhere: the news, TV shows, Video Games, Internet, etc. Bullying is all too common these days.  It happens right here in the Benton and Bryant Schools.  Here is a review that was posted on one of the local schools sites:

” Officials are under the impression that ‘bullying does not exist in – - – - -’. In reality, bullying is overlooked.”

Make Beats Not Beat Downs is a non-profit uprising dedicated to presenting alternative help to bullies & the bullied youth through all aspects of music. Their research in to bullying has shown the following:

  • - It is estimated that 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. Source: National Education Association.
  • - 1 in 7 Students in Grades K-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying.
  • - 56% of students have personally witnessed some type of bullying at school.
  • - 15% of all school absenteeism is directly related to fears of being bullied at school.
  • - 71% of students report incidents of bullying as a problem at their school.
  • - 1 out of 20 students has seen a student with a gun at school.
  • - 90% of 4th through 8th graders report being victims of bullying
  • - Among students, homicide perpetrators were more than twice as likely as homicide victims to have been bullied by peers.
  • - Bullying statistics say revenge is the strongest motivation for school shootings.
  • - 87% of students said shootings are motivated by a desire to “get back at those who have hurt them.”
  • - 86% of students said, “other kids picking on them, making fun of them or bullying them” causes teenagers to turn to lethal violence in the schools.
  • - 61% of students said students shoot others because they have been victims of physical abuse at home.
  • - 54% of students said witnessing physical abuse at home can lead to violence in school.
  • - According to bullying statistics, 1 out of every 10 students who drops out of school does so because of repeated bullying.
  • - Harassment and bullying have been linked to 75% of school-shooting incidents.
I can guarantee that there’s been at least 1 night your kids has gone to bed crying and you didn’t know it.
If that’s not bad enough, I’ll let you in on a little secret you may not be aware of: bullying doesn’t just exist for kids. Look at these frightening statistics about adulthood bullying. The Workplace Bullying Institute recently commissioned Zogby to do a poll on bullying in the workplace:
  • 35% of workers have experienced bullying firsthand (37% in 2007, given the MOE, essentially equivalent)
  • 62% of bullies are men; 58% of targets are women
  • Women bullies target women in 80% of cases
  • Bullying is 4X more prevalent than illegal harassment (2007)
  • The majority (68%) of bullying is same-gender harassment
Bullying is everywhere, and it is not going away.  Teachers are busy, and let’s face it, schools aren’t bully prevention centers. Most parents are working long hours and 2 jobs in these tough economic times.

How are you going to protect your child from becoming a statistic?

Who is going to prepare your child to walk with confidence throughout his/ her life?

I will!  With our Kids Martial Arts program at Revolution MMA Benton, your child will learn to Walk With Confidence!

Listen, to this recent video from one of the students in our World Class Kids Martial Arts Program at Revolution MMA Benton :

Here, Tessa talks about signing up for Kids Martial Arts at Revolution MMA Benton to help her deal with bullying, and to be prepared for bullying that could occur in the future.  Her parents made the smart choice to enroll her in Kids Martial Arts at Revolution MMA Benton as a way to prepare her for success in life. She is learning confidence and mental skills, as well as physical skills, like essential techniques and strength building exercises that will help her should she need them.

You also probably noticed that Kids Martial Arts training at Revolution MMA Benton  is teaching her more than how to defeat bullies! She is also learning to value hard work. Thanks to her competition successes and experiences, Tessa learned that when she puts a lot of time, focus, and hard work in to her goals, she will achieve them and be rewarded. If she continues with these principles, she will see great success later in life when she goes to High School, College and later on in the work place!  You can tell by watching the video she feels proud of herself and she has a lot of confidence.  Kid’s Martial Arts classes at Revolution MMA Benton teache kids to walk with confidence!

Here’s 5 Ways Our Kids Martial Arts Program  at Revolution MMA Benton Helps Kids Triumph Over Bullies 

1. Situational Awareness - First and foremost, it’s best to avoid physical confrontations before they occur. Your child needs to know how to recognize a situation that is becoming heated or dangerous, and which situations and places to avoid all together.  Kids who are enrolled in Kids Martial Arts at Revolution MMA Benton learn situational awareness in their classes.

2.  Verbal Skills -  Kids need good verbal skills. Verbal skills help a child diffuse a situation when it’s becoming heated. This prevents the situation from escalating in to a physical confrontation.  Kids Martial Arts at Revolution MMA Benton teaches kids the right words to say and how to say them.

3. Physical Training - While it’s important to know how to avoid a situation or how to diffuse one, inevitably some situations escalate. In a self defense scenario, children who are in shape and healthy are able to escape attack. In addition to teaching kids to live a healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise, Kids Martial Arts at Revolution MMA Benton teaches kids  the proper skills and techniques to use to keep themselves safe and escape a dangerous situation!  Your child will also learn how to use proper judgement for his/ her skills.

4. Emotional Management -  A lot of kids struggle expressing emotions and dealing with stress. Your child needs to know how to deal with his/ her emotions when faced with difficult situations. Your child needs know acceptable ways to relieve emotional stress, how to talk about problems, and who to talk to.  Kids Martial Arts at Revolution MMA Benton helps kids relieve stress through exercise, and provides a safe environment with adults your child can trust to confide in.

5. Social Skills  - Many kids are bullied because they lack social skills. Allowing your child to be in an environment where he/ she can learn how to make friends and get along with others can be instrumental in preventing bullies in school, as well as helping your child with career advancement.  Kids who train Kids Martial Arts Benton learn essential things such as how to get along with a partner, taking turns, helping others, and working as a team.

Most Importantly, Your Child Needs A Positive Role Model!

It’s a proven fact that people emulate what they see. Kids act like the people they hang around with. Who is your child hanging around with? If your child hangs around 9 drug dealers, he’ll become the tenth for sure! Your child needs to be around kids and adults who act with confidence and handle themselves properly.  This is a definitive factor in your child’s success!  Enrolling your child in Kids Martial Arts  at Revolution MMA Benton will allow your child to be around positive role models.

YOUR CHILD WILL GET ALL OF THESE THINGS WITH KIDS MARTIAL ARTS BENTON

Improve Your Child’s Attention With Kids Martial Arts in Benton

Kids martial Arts in Benton

Kids Martial Arts in Benton Can Help!

Conditions that affect a child’s ability to pay attention, such as ADHD, etc are getting a lot of attention these days, and Kids Martial Arts in Benton is the best way to help your child learn to focus and pay attention. It seems everyone has an explanation, or attempted explanation for these problems and medications are all too common. But before you jump on the medication bandwagon, here’s a few ways you can improve your child’s attention at home, and how Kids Martial Arts in Benton can help.

Today’s society is very fast paced and some things can actually ruin your child’s ability to focus. A study of 2600 kids who started watching tv at around age 2 showed that by age 7 they were more susceptible to inattentiveness, distractibility, impulsiveness and disorganization.  Other studies show that human attention span overall may be decreasing due to technology such as internet, etc. Spending a little time with your child at an early age, or letting them try a class for Kids martial Arts in Benton can help your child maintain his/ her attention span and learn attention to detail.

One of the best ways to improve your child’s attention is to practice. In our classes for Kids Martial Arts in Benton , we practice this often. Now first let me say it’s important to remember that your child is still a child. Don’t be too overbearing, expecting your child to focus for long periods of time such as an hour. The average adult’s attention span is only 20 minutes, so don’t expect your child to focus on something too long. Instead plan short spans where your child will focus and then take a break. During our classes for Kids Martial Arts in Benton , we usually have the kids focus on a task for 2 minutes or so, and then allow a 30 second break. If you allow your child to take breaks, he/ she won’t have a problem focusing; afterall they know the break is coming. After the break, take another round focusing on the task. Encourage your child to focus and praise and reward him/ her for doing so.

There are many other things you can do to improve your child’s attention: Make sure your child has adequate space to work, a quite atmosphere during “focus time”, pairing your child with/ next to other students who focus well, and breaking down the task in to smaller tasks. As I teach one of our classes for Kids Martial Arts in Benton I usually try to break down the tasks. If you teach a child too much, you teach him/ her nothing at all. Not only will the child not remember anything, but he/ she will start tuning things out and not try. When I break down the tasks, and encourage the kids to focus, they pick it up much better.  It’s also important to help your child have a “goal” with each task. For example, at our classes for Kids Martial Arts in Benton I might announce the technique we are learning before I teach the first part. I usually show them the full technique. That way the child has some concept of the final goal. The same applies to homework or any task. Tell them what they are working towards and break it in to tasks. This also teaches your child to be goal oriented, in addition to being focused and attentive to detail. If you want, take a look at my other blog, specifically about focusing while training Kids Martial Arts in Benton .
