... there is nothing like a well-structured martial arts program to do just that.

A well-structured program teaches the same child-development lessons that many other groups and organizations do, but with several distinct differences.

These differences include:

  • Developing the whole child (physically, mentally & emotionally)

  • The leaders are walking, talking examples of the program

  • Challenging every student to succeed (not just rewarding those who do)

  • The program is based on sound child-development principles

  • The leaders understand and use good child-development models for maximum results with all types of children

All Child-Development Programs
Are NOT the Same!

While there are many good children's programs, groups, and organizations out there, the truth is that, when examined closely on the grounds of benefits...

... no other child-development program develops the whole child like the martial arts.

We all have three basic aspects to our make-up, and children are certainly no different. If we are to insure that our children grow up with all of the advantages necessary to become positive, powerful and productive people, we must make sure that we develop these three aspects within them:

  • Physical (including the body and it's overall fitness, strength level, and health)

  • Mental (including clarity and focus, knowledge, and problem-solving abilities)


  • Spiritual/Emotional (including feelings of self-worth, value, and purpose)

The Total is Greater Than the Sum of Its Parts

When compared to the three major types of groups or organizations set up to focus on child-development, none comes close to offering the same important benefits as the programs offered at WCI.

Don't believe me, let's look at each:


Child-Development Ratings: Mental - High / Physical - Low / Emotional/Spiritual - Low

Schools, by their very nature, focus on the development of intellect, knowledge and understanding of left-brain, logical processes. And, while this is necessary for success, experts agree that there is far more to intelligence than merely memorizing facts and data. Children (even those who attend religion-based private schools, are graded on primarily academic requirements.

While most schools do have physical education classes, it can hardly be said that a game of kickball or whatever, a half-hour a week, will produce a healthy body. Especially when the phys. ed. teacher is usually a coach for at least one of the school's sports teams. And it's been proven that coaches spend their time and attention on those...

... already fit and naturally athletic! (Some of our most successful students have been those who either do not take to the competitive sports environment or would normally be classified as sedentary, 'quiet-types.')


Children are usually graded on 'participation' in these classes, rather than progress with regards to fitness goals.

Speaking of sports programs, what percentage of the school actively participates in them? Maybe 20%? And that's if we count every team. In reality, the figures are probably closer to 10%.

That means that 90% of the children in a school are getting no more than a token class or two each week that even remotely implies physical fitness!

And, even then, no one really takes the phys. ed. grade seriously when they see it on a report card, do they? I mean really?


Child-Development Ratings: Mental - Low / Physical - Low / Emotional/Spiritual - High

Unless your child is a part of a physically active youth group, a church's function - it's very purpose - is in the spiritual/religious development of the person. Period.

When I say spiritual/religious, I mean making sure that it's members are living by the moral and ethical standards of the church's position or doctrine (this is the ideological, position it has taken which separates it from every other church - even those of the same denomination).

However, when speaking of spiritual development within the martial arts, I'm talking about the emotional strength of the person. While a religious person may develop confidence out of their beliefs as to what may or may not happen to their soul, or their relationship with a particular divinity, it is also true that the very same person can have low self-esteem and self-confidence relating to their own worth or ability to be successful in the conventional world.

Please understand that this is not a positive or negative position about any religious or spiritual organization or doctrine. WCI, while presenting lessons from a wide range of traditions and foundations as they have been passed down through the martial arts, does not interfere with any student's preferences or choices when it comes to spiritual/religious study.

The point here is to show that, when it comes to child-development, churches and their youth groups rank very high in the spiritual department, mental development ranks low because it really isn't about learning much outside of the specifics of that denomination's history, system of beliefs and doctrine, and, it ranks low in the physical development department unless the group meets several times a week or month for fitness-oriented activities and activily promotes the physical well-being of the member.

Let me finish by saying that this assessment is of course based on my own observation and experience. There are probably, and inevitably, exceptions to the rule.

Social Groups and Organizations

Child-Development Ratings: Mental - Variable / Physical - Low / Emotional/Spiritual - Variable

Due to the shear number and types of youth-related organizations and activities, it is difficult to acurately rank some of these areas. Although the usual rule is that...

... those with a high rank in physical (team sports, etc.), rank low in the spiritual department and vice-versa.

As much as I would like to rank Scouting (for both boys and girls) high in all areas, I cannot do this using the same standards. Because, while these groups do participate in activities and functions in all three areas, they simply are not consistent with ALL THREE, all-the-time. By this I mean that...

... they do not work on fitness, academic learning, and personal development in each and every meeting.
