experience in our school:
1. Our reward system improves children's self-esteem.
Martial arts are not like team sports because the emphasis is on developing the individual's self-esteem not the team's winning record. The belt system is the key. When kids earn their belts it gives them a great sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves.
2. Our program teaches children discipline.
One of the things parents appreciate most about our classes is the improvement in their child's self-discipline. We have a wonderful staff of patient instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about limits. We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school.
3. Our activities channel children's aggression.
Many doctors actually prescribed our school for treatment because of the positive outlet it gives the kids for all their energy.
4. Our confidence classes enhance children's self-esteem.
We believe confidence is one of the most important things we can give kids. That's why every class we teach has confidence-building drills included.
5. Our program teaches children essential self-defense skills.
Our program teaches practical, proven self-defense methods. We also teach the kids that the moves they learn in class will work, so they don't go home and try them on their sister, or neighbor. Martial Arts is a Fun, Fulfilling Workout for adults. Our adult students really appreciate the differences between martial arts training and standard exercise programs.
6. Our workouts are a great way to get in shape.
Martial arts like an exercise program with a bonus! You learn to defend yourself while you get in shape.
7. Our classes relieve stress.
Martial arts are well known for its stress relieving benefits. The emphasis on mind-body training goes far beyond the benefits of standard health club type exercise programs.
8. Our classroom practice sessions give you confidence.
I think the confidence building part of our program is what students appreciate the most. Nothing can take the place of the security in knowing that you can defend yourself, if you have to.
9. What we teach you could save your life.
At our school, everything we teach is reality based. Our instructors work very hard to insure that most any situation you might encounter is covered in the classroom under very safe learning conditions, so you will be prepared.
10. Our program is a lot of fun.
The reason our program is so successful is because we make the classes fun and exciting. We learned a long time ago that if people are having fun, they learn much faster.
What Parents and Students say
about our Martial Arts Academy
The only thing that you are required to buy is the official school uniform. Students are not forced to join tournaments. Students are not required to buy multiple uniforms nor are they required to buy equipment.
Do I have to buy anything?
I don't know any martial arts...is that okay?That is totally okay! If you have trained in Martial Arts before that is good too. Everyone has to start somewhere, even the most advanced master didn't know Martial Arts when they first started.
I don't have any experience...is that okay?Yup! We start slowly and "ease" the student into training.
Does it matter that I am out of shape?Nope! We start slowly so that even the most out of shape person can do the exercises. Also, most people do much better than they think they can.
What should I wear on my first class?On the first night of class just wear something comfortable.
Do I have to fight?No! We do the sparring (or fighting) in a seperate class that is OPTIONAL for all students. You DO NOT HAVE TO FIGHT if you dont want to.
