DOES YOUR TEEN WANT TO BECOME THE BEST VERSION OF HIMSELF?
Instead of giving in to his mood and attitude, take him to our martial arts school! Teens are clever and capable – but they can also be their worst enemies. Between peer pressure, an innate urge to rebel against your parents, and rising hormone levels, being around them can be difficult. But all they need is an outlet for frustration – and an opportunity to learn how to be the best.
DOES YOUR TEEN NEED SUPPORT IN ONE OF THESE AREAS?
- He makes hasty, ill-considered decisions and needs a better perspective.
- He’s bullied at school – or he’s the tease. There is not enough exercise or need to lose weight.
- He has low self-esteem and seems depressed all the time. He gives up when things get tough and he doesn’t achieve his goals.
Raising a teenager requires persistence and patience …
LUCKY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION …
If you want the best for your teen, you want them to have the tools they need to be successful now and beyond – and you want it to happen without having to ‘tear all their hair out’ in the process … Get them to do whatever you want may seem completely impossible, and you don’t know where to start?
Discipline, Respect and Perseverance
Learning martial arts helps children learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – ones that will accompany them home, the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
YOUR TEEN WILL MATURE WITH EVERY LESSON!
Teens who learn martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline in each lesson. Our classes emphasize core values such as discipline, respect and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – inside and outside the dojo – reflects them as people and affects their ability to achieve goals.
They know the value of respect for themselves and others!
In our martial arts school, respect is a fundamental discipline. Students must always treat their instructor and other students with respect. Ultimately, teens who learn martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, they will also be respected by other people.
CORRECT JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL COMBAT SKILL!
Whether they are in a martial arts class or a competition, the difference between good and poor behavior often comes down to evaluation. Students learn how to make correct assessments in a moment using the information they have at hand during training. They also learn how to distinguish good instincts from bad ones – and use that information to make judgments.
TAKE YOUR CHILD FROM THE COUCH AND DIRECT TO THE MARTIAL ARTS
It may seem like a teen would love to spend all day on the couch playing video games or posting on social media. The electronics epidemic can be good in many ways, but teens still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy. Martial arts classes provide teens with challenging training in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Teenagers don’t seem to care about setting goals for the short or long term. Learning martial arts requires them to regularly pursue their goals. Every skill they learn and every belt they earn represents the goal they’ve achieved. Goal setting in this way gives teenagers the tools they need to set achievable goals at school, at home, and in life.
