What benefits will we gain from training?

   Respect, Discipline, Honor

"We'll help you learn, what you're capable of achieving"

Self-Discipline – Today’s kids are so accustomed to receiving instant gratification that lessons in effort and discipline aren’t always easy to come by. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.

Social Skills – Too many people today lose their social skills because they hide behind their computer screens. Karate helps build social skills because they are forced to interact with partners while learning self defense and other aspects of the art.

Physical Activity – Get the kids off the couch and encouraging them to be more active. Enrolling an inactive child in such a physically demanding pastime not only discourages the sedentary lifestyle they're used to, but also gives them an enjoyable activity that inspires each person to keep moving.

Learning to Set and Achieve Goals – Most forms of martial arts are based around an accomplishment system of colored belts that signify the wearer’s degree of skill. When your child strives toward each new belt, he’s learning valuable lessons about setting and reaching his goals.

Increased Self-Esteem – Confidence comes with achievement, so your child’s self-esteem level will get a boost with every new move he masters and every belt he earns. Kids who struggle with a low sense of self-worth usually become more confident as time progresses while they’re enrolled in a martial arts class.

Instilling a Sense of Respect – Learning any martial arts style will require your child to show her instructor unflinching respect. Today’s kid culture doesn’t always include respect for authority, adults or those in advanced positions. When she goes to her karate class, though, your child will be learning lessons in respect along with new moves.

Encouraging Non-Violent Conflict Resolution – Thinking that martial arts instruction promotes violent behavior is justified if your only experience with the activity comes from television or movies. In fact, many defensive styles teach kids peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasize the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.      "Karate is a defensive art from beginning to end" -Gichin Funakoshi

Improving Listening Skills – In order to master the skills she’s being taught and advance through the belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills. Kids who aren’t always adept when it comes to paying attention to what they’re told can benefit from the verbal instruction and one-on-one work in her dojo.

Developing Teamwork Skills – Whether he’s testing for a new belt or sparring in a practice setting to master a new maneuver, there are few things that your child does in his martial arts classes that will be done on his own. Working together to learn new things and accomplish goals is an important life lesson for kids to learn, and instruction in the martial arts can help your child learn that lesson.

 

***Improvement in Other Areas of Life – The benefits of martial arts training don’t end in the dojo. The discipline skills that have been learned through Karate have benefited many of our students. Students have gone on to win academic achievement awards, athletic scholarships and more. many of our students have become teachers, business leaders, doctors and more. Karate is not about fighting, or who you can beat. It's about life, your life, and how you can defeat your own insecurities and fears.
