It’s never too early…
Our children’s program is geared around the 3 F’s: Focus, Fitness, and Fun!
Our unique belt-earning strategy is grounded in a positive reinforcement system that allows each child to set and attain short, mid, and long term goals.
The goals that we set with each child are three fold:
1. Physical – Improvement in balance, strength and conditioning, and precision
2. Mental – Improvement in focus, creative thinking, and memory
3. Emotional – Improvement in discipline, confidence, determination, and respect
Progress through our belts is built on predetermined improvement in all of these areas. Goals are individually created for each child based upon his/her needs, and recommendations to test for the next rank are based upon these goals. The goals are not limited to martial arts, but also include respect, focus, and following directions outside of our studio.
Our experience has shown that children that have enrolled in our martial arts training program have seen an improvement in their other sports, their academics, and other activities, as well as reduced the likelihood of them being a target of bullying.read more
