Childhood Obesity is a serious problem and it’s continual growth should have parents worried. A lot of the blame is pointed at fast food giants and online activities that see young kids sitting down and staring at their TV/PC screens rather than playing with friends outside.
So why are Martial Arts Games proving so addictive with kids and how can this be a great opportunity to help fight childhood obesity?
Aaron J. Perry is considered to be the Guru of Martial Arts Games and he has been encouraging kids to play them since 2005. His influence has spread from Brisbane, Austrlia right around the world and he is responsible (with the help of his loyal network of supporters) for introducing kids aged 4+ into this new addiction of Martial Arts Games.
The Martial Arts Games have been cleverly designed to get young kids challenging each other in competitions of strength, balance, speed and agility to find new champions. A.J.Perry has recently published his books on Amazon in an attempt to reach a wider audience and further spread his passion for seeing kids compete in his Martial Arts Games. Parents hearing about this for the first time could be concerned but this may be the answer to helping fight childhood obesity and encouraging kids to get up off the couch and to start exercising with their family and friends.
These two new books “Martial Arts For Kids: Kids Activities for Healthy Kids” and “Martial Arts For Kids 2: Kids Group Activities For Healthy Kids” are quickly reaching the status of Best Sellers in both paperback and kindle versions. Both titles have raced to the top of Amazon’s list of Martial Arts for Kids books.
Both books are filled with Martial Arts Games and Challenges to help create healthy kids full of confidence that see obstacles not as excuses to give up, but as challenges to be overcome.
With the success of these two new books we have to wonder whether healthy kids are addicted to Martial Arts Games or if these new Martial Arts Games for Kids are responsible for helping produce a new wave of Healthy Kids.
These new books written for martial arts students are an extension of A.J. Perry’s highly successful “Martial Games For Kids” Manuals which have been embraced by Martial Arts Instructors all around the world in a wide variety of Martial Arts styles.
