Hey, this is Young Kim at Youngkim Martial Arts.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a common condition exemplified by impulsiveness, hyperactivity and inattention, according to the Child Development Institute. Because many children diagnosed with ADHD have a short attention span and struggle with socializing and emotional control, a lot of parents don’t know what sorts of extracurricular activities will be enjoyable for their child without adding extra stress. Martial arts is known to be an activity that children with ADHD can not only enjoy, but use to help ease the symptoms of this disorder. Here are a few reasons you should consider enrolling your child with ADHD in a martial arts class:

Hey, this is Master Kim at Youngkim Martial Arts.
As a father of teen age son once, I know how it looks like raising teen under the roof.
Being a teenager is tough, with unfamiliar changes to your body and emotions and all of the insecurities that come with them. Anything that can make growing up easier and more fun is certainly welcome. If you have a teen in the house, you can support their journey into adulthood by enrolling them in martial arts classes. Here are the ways martial arts can benefit teenagers:

What will Martial Arts training do for me?
Martial Arts training will help you get in great physical shape and improve your mental and emotional health too!
How is training in the Martial Arts different from other exercise programs?
Hi, My name is YOUNGHAB KIM,
Martial arts training develops greater inner peace, and teaches you how to truly relax and reach your full potential.
Unlike other physical activities (sports, weight training, etc.), practicing the martial arts doesn’t necessarily require great physical strength, athleticism, youth, size, or weight for success.
Everyone learns and progresses at his/her own pace, regardless of age, and the martial arts develop the entire person—physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Part of the YOUNG KIM'S MARTIAL ARTS curriculum includes setting and achieving challenging but attainable goals, which builds the confidence to succeed under pressure.
We call this indomitable spirit.
- Working out in a gym or playing team sports can’t provide the internal and external fitness that comes from the Martial Arts, and certainly won’t teach you valuable self-defense skills!
- The Martial Arts improve cardiovascular health, endurance, strength, and flexibility.
Transform your body into a leaner, more muscular state, and wrap your mind around learning self-discipline, focus, and confidence—you can do anything you put your mind to!
