of our students. Our program assists in developing an awareness of the importance of fitness, health and safety, enhancing
personal responsibility among our students.
IT IS OUR MISSION TO AWAKEN THE CHAMPION WITHIN EACH ONE OF OUR STUDENTS.
Martial arts help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are commonly underdeveloped skills in ADHD kids.
Martial Arts promotes improvement in other areas of life. What does "improvement in other areas of life" mean? It can mean getting better grades in school, knowing how to use anti-bullying programs to prevent violence amongst peers, or simply the appreciation that comes from learning and mastering a difficult skill through practice. Perhaps most importantly, students learn that physical activity is a healthy way to have fun. With health problems such as diabetes and obesity affecting more and more young people, parents should take steps to help their children avoid these issues. Children's martial arts gives kids a fun way to exercise, learn essential life lessons and develop a sense of self-reliance.
