From focusing, to goal setting, to self-discipline,
to self-respect – kids emerge from this
program changed for the better.
And their parents couldn't be happier!
Clear Focus - In martial arts, we have kids do one thing at a time. For younger kids, and kids with severe ADD, they may only do one thing for 30 seconds – but for that 30 seconds that's all they focus on.
Determined to Succeed – From Day 1 in martial arts your child sets goals, and accomplishes them. The more and more he does this – the more ambitious he becomes.
Finally Paying Attention – Parents of children with attention problems breathe sighs of relief after just a few short weeks.
That's because in martial arts – we teach kids to look people in the eyes when they're being spoken to. We teach them that this is how you show people you're listening, and paying attention.
Completing Tasks the First Time He's Asked – In martial arts, we have just a few simple rules. One of those rules is that when your child is asked to do something – he does it the first time.
Self-Respect – When it comes to bullies, kids in martial arts don't back down. They have the confidence to look a bully in the eyes, and stand their ground.
This is what nearly always happens…
The bully gets scared and backs down!
Weight loss – It's easy these days for kids to not exercise. As a result, many children experience weight problems at a young age.
Martial Arts is an amazing form of exercise – Your child will be active the entire time. But there's no pressure on him to do anything he can't.
We'll encourage him to do his best – but this isn't boot camp or anything.
