I Love it! I put my kids into training a few months ago to help them learn to focus and I am so impressed with how much they have changed in such a small amount of time! They're always so excited about training and begging me to bring them to class...it's never a hassle to get them ready to go like it has been with other sports or after school activities. In addition to the martial arts skills, the fitness, balance, and coordination...my kids have learned how to be disciplined, how to stand up straight and still, and how to practice eye contact. The training isn't all physical...each class, the instructors talk about a life skill/lesson that they encourage the kids to practice at home or at school. Last week they talked about courtesy and how to show courtesy to others. It's really a great program for fitness and life skills.

My kids have loved it so much and I'm always practicing with them at home..I recently decided to try taking classes for myself and I'm loving it just as much as my kids! Each class I'm learning self defense and martial arts AND getting a pretty intense cardio workout! I highly recommend this facility and program to anyone and everyone!

Great instructors and no place better for your kiddos (and you!) to build confidence, discipline, & respect, all while learning how to protect yourself. The Parent's Night Out and birthday party's are amazing options also! Don't forget, you can also break some boards too!!

Our 6 and 8 year old sons started here a couple of months ago. They absolutely love it and would go everyday if we could get them there. They are learning so much including focus and discipline. The results are amazing. The instructors are all family and you can tell that they love what they do and the children they teach. Highly recommend this place!!!

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts, students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies

Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear. However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can have a great impact on children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
