The Life-Changing Positive Benefits Our Martial Arts Program Provides
Every year, parents like you bring their children to enroll in our children’s martial arts program. And every year, those children reap the rewards that our properly instructed martial art programs provide.
In our martial arts program, your child will learn to discover, nurture and grow the 12 Life Skills that we have chosen to represent the basic character traits that a parent wants their children to have. The Life Skills are the main products that our martial arts school teaches. The 12 Life Skills that we have select are outlined in a page of their own and a Life Skill is emphasized each month so that the students get a chance to see how they apply to their learning their martial arts skill and then how they have applied them at home and at school.
Here is a short explanation of how our programs teach these a few of our life skills:
Courage – By learning how to protect themselves, you child will develop confidence in their ability to handle life’s challenges. In turn, their improved confidence will give them the ability to say “no” to negative influences.
Focus – We will help your child increase their focus by giving them clear goals and showing them how to achieve those goals through hard work and being consistent. (Of course, they won’t realize they’re learning focus because our classes are so much fun! But keep that to yourself – it’ll be our little secret…)
Self-discipline – Kids learn self-discipline in the martial arts by learning how important it is to have respect, both for themselves and for others.
As you can see, our martial arts programs teach so much more than “just kicks and punches.” We help children develop these life skills that will take them far beyond the four walls of our martial art school – benefits that will last them a lifetime.
Positive Role Models Who Will Encourage Your Child to Succeed
Kids need strong role models who set a positive example for them to follow. Are today’s professional athletes, pop music entertainers, and actors providing your children with the proper examples that you want them to follow? So where can they turn for positive role models?
Our answer to this question is our professional staff of caring instructors. We honestly believe our martial art instructors are some of the best role models your child can have.
Experience has shown us that kids respond to our martial art teachers in way that no other coach or instructor can match. Because we realize how much our students look up to us, we work hard to set a positive example for them by living the martial arts principles of honesty, integrity, courage, kindness, and self-control.
As you know, children are hard-wired to seek attention and approval. So, when kids see positive behaviors demonstrated by our instructors, they are strongly driven to display those same behaviors in their own actions.
But, it doesn’t stop there – our martial art classes come with a “built-in” reward system that will encourage your child to act as they should. This “built-in” reward system is our belt-rank progression program. Children in our programs know they are expected to behave at home and at school in order to progress to their next belt rank.
This “one-two punch” of providing inspiring role models and giving your child positive feedback works amazingly well to help children improve their behavior. To date, we know of no other extracurricular activity that provides kids with such incredible incentives for displaying good behavior.
And, it works. Just visit our school and ask some of the parents who have had their children enrolled in our programs.
When you do, you’ll hear story after story of how our programs have helped their children improve their behavior and achieve greater success. Parents share these stories with us all the time, and frankly we’re quite blessed to have had a small part in improving each child’s life.
