Of the 18.1 million Americans who participate in martial arts, almost 9 million are adults. It shows how adults are taking more and more to a field which they were reluctant to take on. As the number of learners increase, we see that martial arts has become a luring business for at least some. Not surprisingly, though hundreds of new institutions promise every year to be the new name in martial arts, very few of them actually manage to stick out long. From the perspective of the learner, choosing the genuine martial art programs becomes a challenging task.
 Standing the Test of Time: Longevity as the Symbol of Genuineness
Discovering a genuine martial art place is extremely important for adults, because if you waste your years at an unprofessional place, it would be too late to begin somewhere anew. Assessing the genuineness and quality of a martial art school is no easy task, but in a highly competitive environment like martial arts where new institutions come and go, where trends change from time to time, and where each new batch of learners need new things, the longevity of a martial art school indicates a number of things. A martial art school with decades of experience means that:
  • Behind them were probably visionaries who recognized the true significance of martial art much before it turned into the commercial craze for newcomer schools
  • They have succeeded in providing credible service to generations of learners and hence never went out of service for want of new learners
  • They have kept themselves updated with the constantly changing demands of learners and upcoming research that renews the field
Therefore when you choose a martial art school, along with the quality of instruction and safety, you must also ask whether it has a long-standing credible name in the field.

Ideal parenting aims at bringing up children with freedom, space and choice so that their mind and vision can grow without restraints and reach its ambitions. The question then becomes how to discourage children from misusing the freedom that they are given. Trying to discipline them strictly from outside as parents or adults is a regressive idea, because it may stunt their own potential and turn them into rebellious teenagers. The ideal way, is therefore to let the discipline flow from children themselves. Self-disciplining happens when kids are aware enough to know and choose what is good and right. If you are looking for a way to teach your children the art of self-discipline, you must definitely consider martial arts.
 The Structured Environment of Martial Art for Mastering Self-Discipline
The physical benefits of martial arts are often talked about, but it is less known that martial arts also have amazing benefits for mental growth and character development of children. It is the perfect way to cultivate discipline in your children without restraining their lives. The uniqueness of martial arts is that it develops a structured environment for kids to learn and grow. A structured space is one that teaches people to perform regular, routine tasks in particular manners to achieve specific goals and values. In the structured atmosphere of martial art training, children will imbibe new values and routinely learn to perform a number of tasks that will help them to master the skill of self-discipline. To fashion your children as intellectually, emotionally and socially competent beings, all you need find is a good martial art school.

Since the birth of social media by the turn of the millennium, whether it is a boon or a bane has remained a hotly debated topic. Now that children have access to social media in an unprecedented manner, much discussion has surrounded its impact on children. And the answers are not always encouraging. In spite of the hundreds of benefits that can be pointed out, studies indicate that social media hasn't made the lives of children any easier than before.

Social Media: Concerns, Criticisms, and the Impact on Children
According to GuardChild, 85% of American parents report their kids using social media. If we consider the chance of children using social media without parental consent or knowledge, this figure could go well up to 90%. What should alarm us is not so much the number of children using social media as much as the dangers which ensue. For instance, according to the statistics compiled by GuardChild, 
  • There is a 300% increase in sexual assaults in which social media plays a role
  • 88% teens owned up to being mean to others in social media, whereas 41% reported being at the receiving end of unpleasant behavior
  • At least 29% of internet sex crimes have origins in social media
  • 55% of children have passed personal details to strangers through social media

Social media, as can be seen above, is a platform that invites external danger in many ways. But what it does to the psychological profile of children is even more of concern: 
  • Children become victims of damaging cyber-bullying through social media
  • They feel anxious and threatened by the the social life of peers visible through social media
  • The response to their social media profiles affect the self-esteem and confidence of children
  • Often, tiffs in social media lead to real consequences and broken friendships/relationships
 This indicates that it is about time we thought of alternatives and solutions.

Martial Arts for Helping Children with Social Media Addiction

Being addicted to social media can be destructive for kids, however, de-addicting kids from their virtual lives and rooting them in the real pleasures of childhood is not an easy task. This is exactly where martial art lessons can help your child, as proven by a range of interdisciplinary research: 
  • Martial arts can be the perfect non-virtual alternative which kids will like, spend time on and enjoy
  • Martial arts teaches the mental and emotional maturity to stay away from social dangers
  • It cultivates some core values in kids, with which they can cope up with peer pressure and the anxiety induced by the demands of virtual life
  • Martial arts instill alertness and critical thinking skills, both crucial in staying safe from online traps
  • Martial arts give the courage and integrity to face and overcome damaging social circumstances such as cyber-bullying 

In renowned martial art schools like Bruce McCorry's Academy, the aim of children's martial arts is not just to help kids de-addict from their obsession with social media, but also provide them with a safe, positive outlet to spend time and energy onThe health benefits, emotional stability, mental strength and courage derived from martial arts is exactly what your child needs to find his/her bearings in the non-virtual world once again.

Teen suicides are not a problem that cropped up overnight, but the sharp pike in attempted suicides among teenagers has been a matter of concern in the past few years. The 60% rise in worldwide teen suicide rates, reported by the World Health Organization, is all the more alarming, because unlike other causes of teen deaths, suicides are preventable with a little attention. The crucial step in preventing suicide is to understand the multiple causes that may lead to it and figure out a solution for them.

 Teen Suicides: Causing Factors and Solutions

Though no one can predict the ways in which human mind may work, experts have broadly worked at the known causes of teen suicides and grouped them under three major heads. These are:


  1. Emotional Contributing Factors:- Emotional factors can be any event or state that causes emotional turmoil, leading to a suicide attempt. The list of situations that can emotionally lead to a potential suicide attempt is endless. It could be insecurity, broken relationships, loss of loved ones, feelings of being unloved, stress, rejection, victimization and so on.
  2. Environmental Contributing Factors:- Environmental factors, on the other hand, refer to situation-based and external factors that could trigger suicidal mindset. Top causes of this kind are bullying, cyber-bullying, peer pressure, dysfunctional family atmosphere, domestic or sexual abuse and so on.
  3. Psychological Contributing Factors:- The third category, referred to as psychological, is about the mental health issues that might culminate in suicide. Most damaging mental causes of suicide are depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, paranoia, and altered mental conditions ensuing from substance abuse.


Since the trigger for teen suicides could be so different and difficult to take on, any potential solution should be able to deal with multiple aspects of human personality. That is where the significance of martial art comes to the forefront.

 Martial Arts to Prevent Teen Suicides

Martial arts is one solution that can address multiple causes that might lead teenagers to suicide.


  • It helps teens to develop emotional stability, maturity and courage. Emotional stability is about not locking up the negative emotions arising from emotionally disrupting events within oneself. Through martial arts, teenagers can learn to channel such feelings to positive ends.
  • Martial arts also give teenagers the self-defense skills, strength, confidence and courage to stand up in the face of danger. This can help them to resist many demanding situations that may occur, such as bullying, peer-pressure, abuse or assault attempts. Above all, martial arts give them the courage to stick to their convictions and take on challenges.
  • Finally, martial arts also help teens to attain a balanced lifestyle that can help with both physical and mental health issues. Martial art learners are proven to be less likely victims of mental health issues and personality disorders.


 At a professional martial arts school like Bruce McCorry's Academy (Peabody, MA), martial art lessons for teenagers tend to include personality-oriented martial art sessions. In Bruce McCorry's, emphasis is placed on helping teenagers to lead a healthy lifestyle, cultivating inner values, focusing on stress-relief and working on self-actualization. With martial arts at their side, our teenagers can definitely take on the challenging phase in their lives and come out as winners.

If you have a child all set for heading back to school by the end of the summer, you have probably started your preparations already. Back-to-school planning, these days, is mostly about finding the right facilities, fixing transportation for your children, buying new school stuff and prepping your child. But it is becoming more and more evident that the challenges that your kids face in school are much different from what they used to be during your childhood. The new challenges also demand new modes of preparation, and just good planning is not enough.

Back to School: Why Your Child Needs Extra Preparation
A number of recent observations have noted how schools are becoming more and more unfriendly spaces from the perspective of children. With more sophisticated syllabus, and the social pressure of teaching methods that involve public speaking, activities and group work, at least some of the kids are facing more study stress. Bullying and classroom cliques are a more pervasive reality these days, and these have taken a menacing turn with the advent of social media. A typical school-going child might worry over performing well in class, not letting down parents and teachers, making friends and facing daily concerns. For older children the concerns usually are the perceived body image, being judged by peers and being not able to live up to the images that popular culture throws at them. Even outside the school, a child faces difficulties, especially in unsupervised afterschool hours. All these make us wonder whether there is a way to prepare kids to face these multiple challenges at once. And the answer lies in martial arts.

Back to School Martial Arts: The Bruce McCorry’s Formula
The perfect step to make sure that your child gets an extra back-to-school care is to enroll them for martial arts. Martial art is the only activity that will help your kid to tackle the many challenges of school life.

  •    Martial arts helps children with confidence and self-esteem. This is the key to succeeding in an activity-oriented classroom, a pressure-filled game of sports or a stage performance.

  •       Martial arts learners are better at interpersonal relations. This is not just because martial arts improves social skills. It teaches children to make friends and be giving in friendships, but also assertive and strong in the face of bullying and peer pressure.
