Sports play an important role in the development and bringing up kids. However, to make the process of their involvement in the health life style more harmonious, it is better to choose a sports section for them according to their own preferences and needs.
Practically all sports sections start for the kids at the age of 4-5. But not all lessons are good for the children of this age. For instance, let’s take martial arts, box and wrestling. It is appropriate for 7-year-old kids, but you should better select the kind of sports where there is less fighting in pairs, because children fight heatedly and severely and it is no good for the kid to receive strokes in the head regularly. Kids undergo concussions worse than adults; it can lead to chronic diseases of brain. The strokes on the face can cause the damages of ear cartilage, nasal cartilage, traumas of eye orbits – for the growing kid it is the source of future health problems. It is recommended to start with aikido, where the main task is to learn how to fall down correctly in order to avoid traumas. Box should be postponed till the age of 12, or better refuse from this idea completely.
