Team sports are certainly effective ways to teach your kids about working with others. However, you don’t have to be confined to traditional options, like basketball or soccer. In fact, martial arts also involve working with others.

Your kids will have to practice new moves with partners, and that involves taking turns, exercising patience and giving constructive feedback. Additionally, they may hold paddles for kicking drills for each other – it depends on the way the instructor plans lessons.

While many martial arts forms require teamwork, some rely on it more heavily than others. So, if you want to give your kids a fun environment in which to stay healthy and develop group skills, consider enrolling them in a discipline like jiu jitsu, which heavily relies on partner work.
