There seems to be a misconception among older generations that they are too old to learn karate – and this couldn’t be further from the truth. At Keswick Karate there is simply no age limit on learning, as the various benefits can and should be enjoyed by everyone. If you’re contemplating enrolling your child in Keswick Karate classes, then now is also the perfect time for you to consider enrolling in karate yourself, and maybe you could convince your partner too. Learning karate as a family can be a very rewarding experience.

Firstly, a family that begins to learn karate together can bond over something that they all have in common. It can be difficult to show enthusiasm while rolling a toy car across a mat or combing a doll’s hair in an attempt to bond with your child, but being able to discuss and practice karate together can be something that interests you both. With so many children choosing to play video games or browse the internet, it can be refreshing to have them involved in some physical activity at home once in a while.

Karate can prove a lot to take in at first for some children, and even adults. Learning with your child means that if you or your child are struggling to nail a certain technique or concept, you will be able to help each other improve on those weaknesses. It may be that you didn’t understand the instructions, or perhaps there were elements that you forgot, but you can fill in the blanks by discussing what you have been learning with each other.

Learning karate with your children, especially children that are close to becoming teenagers, can create some competition between the two of you. When training in any sport with someone else, it is common to try and outdo each other. Competing against each other in this way can be very beneficial for both you and your child as it allows you both to set goals and achieve them. Your child will learn to understand the value of reaching the goals they set themselves which will benefit them equally in other areas of life.

In today’s world, it can often be a challenge to spend some quality time with your children. Work can often be demanding at the best of times. When you arrive home after a long day, you may want to relax and relieve some stress, which can be difficult when you have children to keep entertained. By learning karate with you child, you can spend time together while relieving your stress and feel good about it afterwards.

So while many people think that they are too old to study karate, perhaps you just need someone to help you along, and it’s an excellent idea to enrol yourself with your child. No matter what age you are, there is something that everybody can benefit from by learning this sport, and the benefits are endless. So if you’re looking for a way to spend more time with your children, or even just be cool parents, consider enrolling at Keswick Karate.
