Confidence, especially in our martial arts classes, is the difference between what a child can actually do vs what they think they can do. You’ll see them grow more and more confident, and confront new
challenges both inside and outside of our school.
The most important thing your child will get in our classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. They’ll be able to objectively recognize things they need to improve (homework, family interaction, physical effort), and they’ll take pride in the things they get right. This will be invaluable for them as adults.
If they ever need it, your child will absolutely be able to defend themselves physically. But far more importantly, they’ll be able to fend off the mental onslaught of peer pressure and the emotional weight of bullying and unkind behavior. These are skills they’ll desperately need as they grow older.
If you want your kids to stay healthy, they have to enjoy their exercise. Our classes are so much fun, your child will beg to come. They’ll actually love doing pushups, jumping jacks and crunches. They’ll take pride in their improved flexibility and stamina, and they’ll leave class everyday sweating and smiling.
