For confidence, focus, and achieving anti-bullying tactics 100% Agree! And for anyone who has any questions feel free to ask. This is where Lila studies martial arts. She has been here for over 2 years now and as a parent I checked out about 4 other schools before deciding on this one. Very happy with our decision and Lila Loves it here!

Master Chris and the entire team are wonderful to work with. They really took the time to get to know our little guy. His concentration and focus have really improved over the last few months and his behavior at school has improved as well. Definetly worth the investment.

Couldn't be happier with the training my daughter has received. She has learned so much! Most don't realize that besides the physical part there are so many mental aspects and life lessons that she has learned. The leadership abilities and confidence she has learned is something she could have never learned at this age. I am beyond thankful to Master Chris for everything we have and will continue to learn from the program!

It's always hard finding the right place that your child fits in to. We have had nothing but amazing experiences here, and my son (5 yrs) loves it! We started in the fall, and he looks forward to every class. The staff is amazing, and knows how to work well with children which is hard to find sometimes. They learn a lot of life lessons, respect, discipline, as well as self defense. We are so glad we came here!

Goal Setting: Unleash Your Child’s Potential

Goal setting is one of the most highly linked characteristics to the success that individuals have. Top athletes and successful people all use goal setting. And while it is a trait that is most often associated with adolescents and adults, younger children can also benefit greatly from beginning this life skill at an early age.

Learning how to set reasonable and attainable goals is a valuable lesson for children of all ages. Studies show that goal setting helps children improve their self-discipline and self-awareness. It also increases their internal drive so that they stay motivated to complete the goals they set for themselves. By accomplishing their goals, children’s self-esteem automatically increases, and they have more motivation towards setting future goals.

For children that are just beginning to set goals, it is important that they have tangible and immediate successes to keep them motivated. Goal setting should also be fun so that they will stay interested and continue setting goals throughout their lives. This will help them build the habits necessary to achieve important goals as they continue into adulthood.

In our Kids Programs at Inspier Martial arts North Royalton, Ohio, short- and long-term goal setting and achievement are at the very core of it. The goals are not intended to create pressure on the student, but rather to encourage them to do their best so that learning and effort is valued. Because our programs utilizes game-based learning in this process, the students have fun while they put effort towards the drills. By setting these goals and achieving them, the students will unleash their potential.

Short term goals are addressed in class each day. Students are trained on a skill each day, according to their age group. At the end of the class, the students are given an opportunity to perform the skill for the instructor. When they have completed this skill successfully, they earn a stripe for their belt. These short-term achievements keep them motivated to continue to set new goals for themselves and work to accomplish them.

As the students work towards earning all eight stripes on their belt, they are ultimately working towards their long-term goals for the testing cycle. The long-term goal accomplishment will be finalized through testing where the students will perform all skills they have learned and, finally, receive the next belt in their level. And as an added bonus, goal-setting is addressed as an additional 4 week life skill program each year.

But not only does our kids program utilize the stripes and belt system, it also incorporates additional goals that students can work towards. These include being a part of the leadership program, which is a program of higher-level challenges,which is an invitation only program that students can work to become a part of.

To succeed in life, we must know exactly what it is we are trying to do. This is the first and foremost secret of successful people – a secret we give as a gift to our students when we teach them how to set goals. By doing this, we are creating positive habits of setting goals that will carry over into adulthood.
