The benefits of diving are not only that the fantasy world in the water brings great spiritual enjoyment but also that regular diving can develop muscles in all parts of the body, improve physical qualities such as strength, speed, endurance and flexibility, and also develop people's will to be brave, tenacious, collaborative and cautious, as well as increase intelligence, self-confidence and leadership skills, while also improving learning performance. For example, for a child in his teens, not only can learn how to install complex equipment, and master the necessary underwater survival skills.
