We dedicate ourselves to help our community to learn life skills such as discipline, respect and confidence. I would like to remind you that we have limited space, so if you plan to register your child, please act now. For your information, the school operates all year long, except for Christmas holidays and on statutory holidays. We also register students regularly all the time and anytime.
Please find out how we can help out in the development of your child or anyone else:
One of the central tenets of all forms of our academy is an absolute focus on self-discipline. Today's kids are so accustomed to receiving instant gratification that lessons in self-restraint and discipline aren't always easy to come by. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.
Boosting Socialization Skills
Kids who don't always thrive in highly social environments may find it easier to get to know people and make new friends when they're in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. The kids on the playground may not always have much common ground,but devotees to the martial arts are able to get to know one another through shared pursuits. Partner-driven forms like Taekwon-Do can also foster camaraderie, as they force kids to pair off and build their skills together.
Encouraging Physical Activity
Limiting screen time is a great idea when it comes to getting kids off the couch and encouraging them to be more active,but it only goes so far. Enrolling an inactive child in such a physically demanding pastime not only discourages the sedentary lifestyle he/she's used to, but also gives his/her an enjoyable activity that inspires the child to keep moving.
Learning to Set and Achieve Goals
Our teaching system is based around an accomplishment system of colored belts that signify the wearer's degree of skill. When your child strives toward each new belt, he/she is learning valuable lessons about setting and reaching his goals.
Confidence comes with achievement, so your child's self-esteem level will get a boost with every new move he masters and every belt he earns. Kids who struggle with a low sense of self-worth usually become more confident as time progresses while they're enrolled in a martial arts class.
Instilling a Sense of Respect
Learning any martial arts style will require your child to show her instructor unflinching respect. Today's kid culture doesn't always include respect for authority, adults or those in advanced positions. When he/she goes to Taekwon-Do class, though, your child will be learning lessons in respect along with new moves.
Encouraging Non-Violent Conflict Resolution
Thinking that martial arts instruction promotes violent behavior is justified if your only experience with the activity comes from television or movies. In fact, many defensive styles teach kids peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasize the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.
Improving Listening Skills
In order to master the skills he/she's being taught and advance through the belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills. Kids who aren't always adept when it comes to paying attention to what they're told can benefit from the verbal instruction and one-on-one work in the training hall (do-jang).
Developing Teamwork Skills
Whether he's breaking boards to get a new belt or sparring in a practice setting to master a new maneuver, there are few things that your child does in his martial arts classes that will be done on his own. Working together to learn new things and accomplish goals is an important life lesson for kids to learn, and instruction in the martial arts can help your child learn that lesson.
Improvement in Other Areas of Life
The benefits of martial arts training don't end in the do-jang or training hall. The boost in confidence, increased fitness level and new cooperation skills will also help your child navigate the academic and social aspects of school, affect his behavior at home and have an all around good influence on your child as he or she develops into an adult.
If you have a child, he or she may try out for free with no obligation. Since we have limited space, please phone us for an appointment so we can arrange a free orientation, free lessons and an assessment.
