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!

What To Expect From Your New Ninja

Martial arts training is well-known for the benefits it provides to children in the development of physical skills and improved discipline. Parents often enroll their children in martial arts to achieve goals such as these. While the attainment of these goals is possible, parents often have unrealistic expectations of the time it takes for children to get there.

Of course, age, stage of development, and myriad other factors go into determining exactly how quickly a specific child will accomplish a particular goal. But, there is one thing that is the same across the board: when children start martial arts, parents need to remember that their child is embarking on a new journey, with new people, in a new environment, and learning new information.

An endeavor of this magnitude would be a bit overwhelming for anyone. older children may handle this pressure a little better, but parents should expect a certain amount of time for integration, regardless of a child’s age.

The Inspire Martial Arts age-specific curriculum was specifically designed to target individual age groups and to work on skills that are essential for each stage of development. Within this framework, each age group is also broken down to address physical, intellectual, emotional, and social growth that is appropriate for that age.

By creating the program in this way, children can achieve more in a quicker amount of time because the goals are challenging but also achievable.

Parents, however, must keep in mind that children are all different, developing and attaining goals at different times. In a specific age group, there may also be children who have been in the class for a longer time. These children have worked on the skills for that age group longer, and it would be unfair to measure a new ninja’s performance against a more advanced student. However, even for two children of the same age, who have started at the same time, one may achieve a specific skill quicker than another.

Let’s take this from a different view as well. Even if parents aren’t comparing their child to another, they often feel that their child should achieve a particular goal after only a short time of training. While parents will see some development and improvement in skills after a few weeks, expecting them to suddenly have a specific ability mastered after only a short time is unrealistic.

As they say, “slow and steady wins the race.” As children develop, we need to remember that they will get there when their bodies and minds are ready. Expecting certain things of a child that they are not physically, intellectual, emotionally, or socially prepared for can do more harm than good. Consistent training and the practice of the skills, and celebrating small wins along the way is the key to success.
