“Are they just playing games?”
We get asked this question from time to time. It’s one of our favorite to answer because we are very proud to be doing things a bit differently and we are passionate about the Skillz age based training approach, where we meet our young martial artist where they are and help them grow through strategic drills and “play.”
Parents come in with an expectation of what martial arts training should look like. They expect to see a line of students in crisp uniforms standing at attention and then moving down the floor practicing their craft. While we do practice traditional martial arts, and you will see that in classes with our older students. With our Skillz students, we take an age-based training approach that allows for growth in discipline, respect and martial arts skills… through game-based drills.
Parents, if you want to make learning fun for your kids, game-based drills are the way to go! Not only are they engaging and entertaining, but they also provide a great opportunity for kids to develop skills that will benefit them in the long run.
These game-based drills are designed to help kids develop cognitive, social, and physical skills that will help them in school and in life. They focus on problem-solving, critical thinking, and team building. Through these drills, kids learn to analyze their options, solve problems, and think creatively.
But don’t just take our word for it! Numerous studies have shown that game-based drills are extremely effective in helping children learn and develop. In one study, researchers found that children who participated in game-based drills showed significantly higher levels of problem-solving and cognitive skills than those who did not.
Another benefit of game-based drills is that they provide an opportunity for kids to have fun while learning. Kids can work together to solve problems, practice skills, and build relationships with their peers. By making learning fun, kids are more likely to stay engaged and interested in the process.
Game-based drills can also help parents and teachers to keep kids motivated and on track. When kids are having fun, they are more likely to stay focused and be more productive. This can result in better grades and improved academic performance.
So, if you’re looking for a way to make learning fun and engaging for your kids, game-based drills are the way to go. Not only are they effective in helping kids develop important skills, but they also provide an opportunity for kids to have fun while learning.
