Our Martial Arts programs are designed to enhance physical, mental and social growth. It is well known that the martial arts instills discipline, self confidence, respect and responsibility in students. These attributes are instilled in our programs.
Parents and children have different goals when they enroll. Parents want their children to be more disciplined, and respectful. Kids just want to have fun. The youth program is designed to be fun, while incorporating life skills needed to excell in everday life.
Our kids classes focus on a Life Skill lesson plan as well as the techniques required for the month. These skills are about manners, respect and responsibility. Our instructors end each class with "Mat Chat" to review the lesson plan and to discuss the featured Life Skill of the month.
Communication between parents, teachers and instructors is crucial to your child's development. Please do not hesitate to contact your students instructor with any question, comments or concerns.
We practice Stranger Danger skills in class periodically. We teach what and who strangers are. How to avoid them and the tricks they use. What to do if approached or attacked by a stranger. Where to go when they escape. These skills are practiced in simulation skits.
We also offer free Stranger Danger seminars which are open to the public. Our goal is to expose as many children to this life saving information as we can.
