How to be a Better Student with Martial Arts written by: Master McCorry
Every child dreams to be a champion. However, when we assess the performance of children, we can see that many kids are not able to do well in their class as their parents and teachers would wish them to do. In fact, most of these kids have great potential in something or other. If you place them in the right atmosphere which gives them enough positive strength, these kids will excel in their classroom and be champions. How can we make this possible? For this, we have to understand why kids do not do well in their studies at times. What Makes Children Falter in Studies? Time and again, educationists repeat that every child has aptitude in at least one field, and most children have the capability to do well in class. What makes our children falter in studies, then? A number of reasons are there. First of all, the unwieldy curriculum that gives only negligible space to extracurricular activities makes children despise studies. When they have too much to study, they do not just start dreading lessons, but become too tired to learn anything even if they wish to. Another reason for under performance is the apprehensions which hold children back. They start getting bothered by a number of thoughts – can I do as well as others in my class? Am I intelligent enough to learn this? Would I be able to finish this in time? – All these are negative thoughts that extinguish a child’s enthusiasm in studies. What kids need is something that can relieve the excess stress of classroom work and break its boredom.
