Nearly 1 in 3 students (27.8%) report being bullied while attending schools, according to National Center for Educational Statistics, 2013 report. When a child has a lack of confidence, a bully could take full advantage of it according to experts. That is why it is important to help improve a child's self-esteem and increase their confidence, and according to Arizona Martial Arts Expert Pedro Diaz, Karate is the perfect tool to achieve confidence building.
While most people associate Karate and martial arts with Bruce Lee, Hollywood films and fighting, a lot of people do not think about the many benefits Karate and martial arts can bring. One of those benefits is confidence building and helping a person learn more about themselves and develop as a person.
