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!

The staff does an excellent job of working with my son. My sons confidence and self discipline have sky rocketed through the roof. I could not have asked for a better experience for my child.

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!

If At First You Don’t Succeed

You know how that saying goes, right?

Try, try again!

And that brings us to our next core tenet of martial arts: perseverance.

Perseverance is what keeps us going when it would be easier to give up. It’s what makes us get up when we fall down – and it often means the difference between success and failure.

Let’s face it. Things have changed in recent years. It used to be that kids had to persevere. They didn’t get rewarded for showing up. They needed to prove themselves to succeed.

But nowadays, there’s a real danger of kids never learning the value of perseverance. If every kid gets a trophy, they start to expect a reward for a minimum effort. And – no surprise – that’s not good for them.

You and I both know that as adults, we don’t get a trophy for showing up to work every day. We’ve got to do our jobs, and do them well, if we want to succeed.

Kids learn perseverance in our classes in a very simple way. As they study martial arts, they are tested on their knowledge. It’s how they earn new belts and new stripes. If they haven’t mastered a level, they won’t be rewarded. It’s simple – and it teaches them something important.

When a child tests for a new belt and fails, it teaches them how to lose gracefully. It also teaches them to get back on the horse. They can test again – and as many times as they need to in order to advance.

We tell them that a failure is a learning opportunity. The feedback they receive is something they can use to improve their performance. And, they also learn that it feels better to be rewarded when you’ve truly worked for something than it does to be rewarded for just showing up.

It’s easy to see how learning perseverance can help kids. It aids them in the classroom, because sometimes they won’t understand a concept and they’ll need to persevere to grasp it. It helps them when they’re learning a new skill because they’ll be able to accept constructive feedback and learn from it.

And for the rest of their lives, knowing how to persevere when things don’t go their way will help them get through difficult times with their self-esteem intact.

This is an important skill. We put a lot of emphasis on perseverance because it matters – people who persevere tend to be more successful than those who don’t. It’s that simple.
