WHAT DOES YOUR TEEN NEED?

Do they tend to make poor decisions? We can be your teammate to help them improve their judgment.
Are they being bullied/labelled at school – or are they aggressive with other teens? Maybe they need some exercise or a fun way to lose weight?
Are they low on confidence and tend to be depressed? Do they give up easily & fail to meet their goals?

RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE, PATIENCE, & MAYBE A GOOD TEAMMATE OR TWO.

FOREVER YOUR TEAMMATE

They can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. As a parent it can be impossibly hard to know where to start.

Studying martial arts helps teens learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons in a supportive but firm way, the kind of way they get from sports coaches – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.

YOUR TEEN WILL IMPROVE WITH EVERY CLASS!

Teenagers who take mma or karate classes learn the benefits of taking charge of their mistakes and self correction. Our mma classes emphasize Teammate core values like compassion, courtesy, and respect. Students learn that the way they treat others reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals. Our martial arts training will help them find their best selves to succeed in life, no matter what they want to try!

TREATING THEMSELVES & OTHERS RESPECTFULLY

Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to disrespect all authority figures. It is that natural buck & urge to prove themselves to their parents and other authority figures.

In our karate school, we show teens how using courtesy and respect can help them achieve their goals and make better friends, as well as protect them from trouble.

Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they treat themselves well mentally, others will take them more seriously too.

TURNING TEENS TO LEADERS

Having a great support network of teammates in our karate and mma classes helps teens have the confidence to do their best at things without concern of other peoples opinions. The very definition of self discipline.

This discipline they can find in the environment of our martial arts classes allows teens to be the best of themselves and become great leaders among their peers.

As they achieve their goals, they earn more confidence, and worry less about acting out in a way that would make others like them, and more in a way that makes them love themselves.

LEARN HOW TO MAKE SMART DECISIONS

It’s very common for teenagers to make snap decisions based on their emotions, without considering the possible consequences. Right now is important right?!?!

In our martial arts classes, teens learn through experience, how to evaluate situations and make wise decisions instead of rash ones. This way they can learn to have the best outcomes of their actions, and avoid trouble!

Over time, the decision-making process becomes ingrained like muscle memory, for any decision they may face as adults.

JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS

Whether they’re in a karate class or in a classroom, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.

Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.

They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make their best judgments.

HELPS BULLIED TEENS FEEL STRONG AND PROUD

Bullying is a huge problem in life these days, and if your child is being bullied, you know that something needs to change!

Studying martial arts helps teens Respect themselves, make the most of their natural talents and capabilities, and carry themselves with Confidence.

Ultimately, kids who feel good about themselves are less likely to be bullied than kids who don’t.

AGGRESSIVE TEENS LEARN HOW TO CONTROL THEMSELVES

Martial arts helps teens corral their aggression and channel it into something positive. It teaches them that violence and unkindness are not the answers to their problems.

In our martial arts school, we are a team that works together to get better. Aggression and angst quickly melt away in an encouraging and friendly atmosphere where everyone wants you to succeed!

We use karate to help people, not to hurt people!

GET YOUR KIDS OFF THE COUCH AND INTO MARTIAL ARTS

It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.

The electronics craze might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.

Martial arts classes provide teens with fun workouts in a social setting that rivals any video game.

Give your teen the best teammates, to be the best they can be.

TEENS DESERVE TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES

It’s not uncommon for teenagers to feel inadequate, sad, and lonely. They’re hard on themselves and may struggle with self-esteem issues.

In our martial arts classes, they learn that they have skills and capabilities that make them strong and resourceful – and they learn how to make the most of their bodies and minds.

Over time, getting control of their bodies and minds helps build self-esteem and confidence.

MANAGING STRESS HELPS TEENS SUCCEED

As adults, we sometimes dismiss the idea that kids experience stress – but the truth is that teenagers deal with stress every day.

Peer pressure, grades, and college applications, combined with hormones and interpersonal issues, can add up to a huge stress load for modern teenagers.

Martial arts classes give kids a positive and healthy outlet for the stress, helping them to keep anxiety under control.

HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS

Teens sometimes seem have a hard time setting goals in the short-term or the long-term.

The study of martial arts encourages them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.

Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.
