My child is more worried about being cool than about doing the right thing. Can this program help?
es. It’s common for kids at this age to be heavily influenced by their peers and to avoid doing anything that might be seen as uncool. We help them see the importance of behaving appropriately regardless of what other people think.
Can the program help my child make better decisions?
Yes. Decision-making is a key skill both in our program and in life. We show kids the value of weighing options and using their brains to make smart decisions – both in and out of our martial arts school.
My child doesn’t listen to a thing I say but takes advice from their friends all the time. Can you help?
Yes. Kids at this age love to challenge their parents and rebel. It’s part of growing up, but it can certainly be frustrating for parents. We emphasize the importance of respect and loyalty to family as one of our core values.
I know my child could excel physically, but they don’t seem to have any interest in putting in the work necessary to do so. How can your program help?
The program is designed to reward precision and persistence. Kids must commit to learning good form and being able to perform to a certain standard if they want to succeed – and those are skills that can carry over to the playing field, as well.
My child is shy and reluctant to do anything in front of an audience. I’m worried about what this means for the future – can these classes make them more confident?
Yes. All our testing happens in front of an audience of the students’ peers and instructors. They learn that they only thing they control is their performance and not to worry about what other people think.
Can the program help my child rise to challenges instead of running from them?
Yes. In our program, it’s common for kids to be frustrated as they try to learn new skills. Over time, they realize that avoiding challenges doesn’t help them – and that facing them helps to build confidence and self-reliance. We even have a mantra for this: “I Can Do Hard Things”
