Confidence, Self Defense, and a LOT of Fun
Bullying is an unfortunate part of life, especially for kids. However, with the right knowledge and skills, your child can become bully-proof. Our program is designed to help kids be prepared for any situation. When a child is prepared and has the knowledge and skills to defend himself or herself, regardless of the situation, it gives them confidence and strength. They will have the confidence to defend themselves from bullies, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Bullies feed on fear. Confident kids are prepared and less afraid. Bullies don’t like to pick on confident kids.
Respect is the Foundation of the Martial Arts
One of the great benefits of our program is that everyone involved learns and embraces how important respect is, both on and off the mat. Your child will learn to respect kids and adults that are older and younger, as well as those that have higher and lower ranks than them. In return, they will also learn to be respected by their classmates and instructors. This foundation of respect creates a warm environment where everyone is comfortable to work hard, learn, and always improve.
