    10 THINGS KIDS LEARN FROM STUDYING MARTIAL ARTS

    Martial arts article from Nannyjobs.com

    Martial arts mats being used

    To parents that have little experience with the world of martial arts, the entire sport can seem violent and dangerous for kids. Upon closer inspection, however, many find that their kids will reap an innumerable amount of benefits from participation in a martial arts training program. In addition to busting sedentary habits and getting kids in shape, martial arts instruction also helps kids learn these ten valuable lessons.

    1. Determination and Dedication – In order to ascend through the ranks and earn new belts, kids that study the martial arts must exhibit dedication and determination. Learning to set and achieve new goals through hard work and dedication is one of the most valuable skills that a child can take away from martial arts training.
    2. To Manage Disappointment in Healthy Ways – No matter how dedicated he is or how hard your child tries, there’s a good chance that he’ll be disappointed by a failure to advance or a mistake that he makes during training. Rather than shielding your child from these feelings, you can use the opportunity as a valuable teaching experience, helping him learn to manage that disappointment in healthy ways.

  • Dollamur Sports Surfaces Donates $25,000 to “Keep Olympic Wrestling” Campaign

    FORT WORTH, May 2013 - Dollamur Sports Surfaces, the nation’s largest supplier of sports mats, and All American Wrestling Supply, a division of Dollamur and the exclusive wrestling apparel provider to USA Wrestling, has donated $25,000 to USA Wrestling’s “Keep Olympic Wrestling” campaign, which aims to influence the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to continue to include wrestling in upcoming Olympic Games. In February 2013, the IOC’s Executive Board recommended that wrestling should not be included with the 25 Core Sports initiative, which will begin after the 2016 Olympic Summer Games.

    “Dollamur Sports Surfaces is a proud sponsor and supporter of its athletes and sports like wrestling. We hope our donation will greatly impact USA Wrestling’s efforts to keep wrestling in the Olympic Games,” said Gary MacDowell, President and CEO of Dollamur.

    USA Wrestling’s Committee for the Preservation of Olympic sports is raising money to fund a campaign to ensure that wrestling will be included in the 2020 and 2024 Olympic Summer Games. The IOC will vote later this year whether or not to include wrestling in future Olympic Games.

    The campaign is drawing the attention of celebrities, including Billy Baldwin, Ashton Kutcher, Mario Lopez, Matthew Modine, Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo.
