6. Sound Body

Master's Message children's class discussion topic of the week.


Having a Sound Body Is when your body is fit, healthy, strong, flexible, and in good working order.


At Cobra Martial Arts we practice exercises and stretches so you develop and maintain a sound body.


If you have a sound body, you probably look great and feel great also, because if your body is sick, tired, or injured, you won't feel great. So, having a sound body also effects your mind and how you feel.


At Cobra Martial Arts we have two mottos:


"Sound Body, Sound Mind, Sound Spirit equals Self Mastery"


"Feel Great, Look Great, Be Great"



Can anyone tell me some things which will stop/prevent us from having a Sound Body?


Notes for instructor leading the discussion:

Eat healthy: Fruits and vegetables, all your dinner, lots of water. Avoid soft drinks and junk food.


Sleep: Listen to your parents when they tell you to go to bed. While you are asleep your muscles grow stronger, your body repairs itself, and recharges itself with energy.


Exercise:


You need to exercise twice every week to develop fitness and a healthy, strong body. Attend two Cobra Martial Arts classes every week, as every class includes:

  • Fitness, heart and lung (cardiovascular) training

  • Strength training

  • Flexibility training

  • Balance training

  • Coordination training

  • Self Defence training

  • Personal Development and the teachings of Traditional Values teachings         




Class Drill:


Paper Breaking


Instructors hold out strips of newspaper for students to break using various martial arts techniques called out by the instructor.


This is a fun way of practicing techniques, rather than always punch and kick into the air or pads, which can get boring. It is a way of disguising repetition.  

Benefits: Develops speed and accuracy. Boosts students' confidence when they break through the paper. Increases excitement and motivation to train.
