Congratulations, You’ve found this special webpage because of Tim Johnson and his great website MALineage.com.
I was talking with Tim after the interview and offered to do something special for his members and here it is… I’ve just released two new paperback books on Amazon.com which I’m sure your kids are going to love so I’m going to give away a couple of copies at random to people that place a comment below.
Leave A Comment… That’s it!
There’s no strings attached, just leave a comment and you may be a winner.
Unfortunately I can’t giveaway these books to everyone that comments… But, you can order your copy through the MALineage.com online bookstore to gaurantee you get your hands on these great new books for your kids.
So, Here’s a Description of The Books…
These books contain a collection of Martial Arts Games and Strength Games which can be set as At-Home Challenges for the kids to complete before their next lesson.
These books have been written for the kids (and for their parents) so that they can continue training at home.
I wanted these books to be universal for all young students so the games and challenges included in both books are not specific to any particular style of martial art. The games and challenges focus on building core strength, and explosive strength, balance, co-ordination, reflex speed and mental focus.
As an adult we can see how and why these games improve these skills but for the kids all they see is a new challenge to beat, a new game to play with friends. This is the real key to getting them training at home. Don’t tell them “Go and do 50 push ups” becaue you’ll hear moans and groans. Say…
“I have a challenge for you, I’m wondering if you’re strong enough to do 10x Wide/Narrow push ups, 10x High/Low push ups, 10x Robot push ups, 10x Superman push ups and 10x Sway push ups during the next TV Ad break. Can you beat that challenge?”
You’ll be rewarded with proud and excited kids ready to take up your challenge and prove to you that they ARE Strong Enough.
Once the challenge is set it’s up to the kids to meet the challenge. When they have their own copy of the books then parents can help their child by making sure they are doing everything properly.
If they forget how to do a certain game or challenge they can refer to the books which are filled with photos to remind them how it’s done correctly.
Parents can use these books to continually keep their kids active and burning off excess energy. If the kids ever say “I’m bored” then parents can grab the books and set out a challenge for them.
The physical improvements from these At-Home Challenges will show up in class. The kids stop falling over, their strikes hit harder and they don’t run out of steam after the first 5 minutes.
I’ve heard parents say that they’d like to help their kids do more at home but they worry they might tell them to do something the wrong way and muck up their training so they don’t get involved.
Many of the games and challenges in these books focus on developing the child’s physical skills so there is nothing that a parent can “get wrong” if they follow the pictures.
There are also striking and blocking games in the books which Instructors can customize/tweak to suit their martial art style. Play these games at the end of the formal lesson and then set it as the At-Home Challenge while it is fresh in their minds and they should remember how to play when they get home.
