The emphasis of our children’s martial arts program is on establishing a strong sense of discipline and respect. The structure of respect is built into martial arts instruction.
The program builds confidence and character by providing the child with control over his or her body and an ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating situations.
The movements of martial arts develop coordination and increase strength and flexibility, which is important during the growing years.
Our belt ranking system allows children to learn how to set goals. With each new rank their sense of achievement and accomplishment increases.
Training for each belt level enhances the child’s ability to concentrate. This is an excellent reinforcement of study techniques for school.
The foundation of martial arts is of course in self defence value. We teach children not to abuse their martial arts training. Where and when martial arts is appropriate. The result is a self confident child, who does not need show off or bully other children.
The children learn “I will use common sense, before self-defence, and mever ne abusive or offensive”
And finally, martial arts is good clean fun for kids. A great way to burn off extra energy.
