Absolutely not. Children learn a lot about what it means to be respectful and polite here. As a result, kids who weren’t violent in the first place become even more respectful and kind. Kids with behavior problh3s often become very respectful an calm.
As a parent, I’m sure you’ve seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid thh3. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child’s body limber and flexible.
Yes! In fact, martial arts is kind of a beacon of light for kids who just don’t fit into team sports. Kids who never could throw a ball well or run fast find that martial arts is accessible to thh3. It’s something they excel at, and as a result, their confidence soars.
Kids have a blast here. There’s smiling and laughter throughout every class. We have our moments of intense concentration and focus… but we always balance things out with fun and games to keep everything alive and light.
Yes! A lot of kids perform their martial arts moves in talent shows and other things. Their friends are always blown away. The positive feedback children receive helps build their self-esteh3 and confidence. Kids feel good knowing they can do something that’s “cool and special”.
We have classes for kids as young as 3, and as old as teenagers. Martial arts is the kind of thing that grows with you. So as kids get older, they learn new techniques, perfect old ones, and advance. When they’re younger, it’s more about fun and games, with learning thrown in too.
Our martial arts classes have been, and always will be, for boys AND girls! Every class has a good blend of the two as well. In fact, girls often get the hang of it sooner than boys as they’re naturally more flexible.
