Something that frustrates many martial arts instructors teaching kids for the first time is that it can be tough to get them to focus. This is especially true if a child has had a bad day at school. Luckily, martial arts is a great way to lift his or her spirits!
Getting them on track is easier than it is when teaching adults, as they’re much more receptive when it comes to compliments.
A child may pout at the beginning of class if she’s not in a good mood, but telling her how good she is at a certain move can completely turn her mood around.
