Swimming keeps your child’s heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and ﬂexibility. It also increases stamina and even improves balance and posture. Swimming provides challenges and rewards accomplishments, which helps children to become self-conﬁdent and believe in their abilities.
Activities like Karate, tae kwon do, kung fu and aikido are a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve ﬁtness and focus. Some parents may think they also promote violence, but that’s a myth, according to experts. The martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deﬁcit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs. That is because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.
At Al Iman Schools, the Karate Kick program has exposed students to many local and international platforms and earned them the opportunity to win multiple awards.
