This class provides a friendly, safe and enjoyable format of comprehensive training for children at least 7 years old and above. The training has a very strong emphasis on safety.Every parent wants the best for their children, and to prepare them for all the challenges that they will face in the future. Effective self-defense skills are certainly important in today’s world full of undesirable people. However, the long term benefits of our children’s curriculum provides much more than just self-defense skills.
Our program develops essential skills and attitudes in preparation for the many physical and psychological challenges they will face during the rest of their lives! The following key traits will have a massive impact on their future success and happiness…

self-esteem to take on new challenges, expect the best from themselves, and

communication, listening, giving and receiving, courtesy and respect.

advanced levels) including taking responsibility, being organized, being a

pressure, or other situations that require real self-defense skills.
- Honor, which is simply
doing what is right. This includes knowing how to properly use the martial art training, and most importantly, knowing when NOT to use it and simply walk away. Also, confidence should not produce arrogance, but the ability to show respect to others, and to help others.
Most parents do everything
they can to teach these life skills to their children. It’s not an
easy task because this type of education is not found in our schools. Schools
tend to focus on knowledge for a career, not skills for a life. It’s not
found on our football, soccer or little league fields either. Team sports tend
to focus on how to win a game, not how to win in life. Teaching your child the
life skills of goal setting, focus, discipline, confidence, courtesy and honor, at a young age,
will have a massive impact on the level of success and happiness he or she
enjoys in later life.
