Training in the martial arts offers the following benefits
for your child:
Improves self esteem
Martial arts is unlike team sports in that the emphasis is
on the kid’s self esteem, not the team’s winning
record. Our grading system is the key. When the kid’s
earn their belt, it really improves the way they feel about
The structure of the class
Our patient instructors enforce good rules and proper behavior
in the class. We call this our “Martial Arts Attitude”.
The kid’s are expected to have the same “Martial
Arts Attitude” outside of the class. Our parents really
appreciate the improvement in their child’s self discipline.
The classes help channel aggression
Studies have shown that the martial arts can be good for child
that has A.D.H.D. That is because the martial arts can give
a positive outlet for all of the kid’s energy.
Development of confidence
Developing self confidence is one of the main reasons a lot
of adults and their children take the martial arts. All of
our classes have many drills for the development of self confidence.
Self defense skills are learned
Our classes are first and foremost fun, however we do teach
awareness and avoidance principles. We also develop the kid’s
verbal and physical skills to deal with a self defense situation.
These skills work through continuous practice. They work so
well that we also teach the kid not to try these techniques
on sibling, family member or friend.
Are Martial Arts right for your child?
An alternative to team sports: There are many advantages to participating in martial arts
over team sports. If you have a child who does not enjoy team-related
activities, martial arts provide a way for your child to learn
not only physical skills, but also mental skills such as concentration
Safer than other activities: Study after study has shown that participation in a well-run
martial arts school is far safer than any other physical activity
your child is likely to be involved in.
Confidence builders: Some children begin martial arts with a lack of self-confidence.
Perhaps this is because they are small, or fragile, or have
been bullied. With training your child will quickly begin
to act and feel more confident. Martial arts training can
also be an aid in developing good manners.
Working out the aggression: Another advantage of the martial arts disciplines, according
to instructors, is that aggressive behavior is discouraged
outside of class. Since children who "bully" others
often have self-esteem issues, the martial arts helps to strengthen
Are you wondering if this is the right Martial Art system
for your child? Here is how to find out.
Step 1: Call
the school and arrange an appointment to meet with one of
our staff instructors. During your first meeting we will speak
to you about your Martial Arts and fitness goals and review
the class schedule.
Step 2: If
after your initial discussion you determine that this does
sound like a Martial Arts program you would be interested
in enrolling your child in, he or she will be invited to attend
the classes FREE for one week.
Step 3: After
the FREE WEEK,
sit down with one of our staff and choose the program and
classes which work best for your schedule. Your child will
then be invited to an Introduction Class. This class will
teach the skills necessary for participating in the group
classes. Our goal for your first lesson, is to determine the
level of fitness your child is at, so that we can tailor the
first few classes to his or her needs. It is very important
to us that your child feels comfortable. We want your child
to know enough about the basic skills, so that he or she can
actively participate in the class with the other students.
