The students in our Revolution Kids program are not just learning to become Martial Artists, but they are learning to become Martial Art Athletes. While they are training physically and get all the benefits of a regular exercise program, they are also learning discipline through daily life skills such as self-control, confidence, and courtesy, each and every time that they come to class.
One thing that is different about our program is our attention to life skills. Children are given the definition of particular life skills (example: Respect--"Treat others the way I want to be treated") and throughout the month are shown and taught different aspects of that character trait and how it is used in karate class, at home, and at school. Each month the skill we are teaching changes so that students are constantly building up a true Martial Artist's character and learning that Martial Arts are much more than just kicking and punching.
Students in this program will learn traditional Martial Arts techniques along with Self-Defense for situations arising from situations that may involve bullies or strangers. Confidence is one of the best ways to help combat bullies. Karate teaches children confidence is through many different types of goals from short term and the simple, like learning a specific technique like a front kick, to more advanced goals like breaking a board, and complex goals that involve several skills in order to earn a Black Belt!
Just the same as if your child sees a cooking show on television and wants to explore cooking, our classes allow them to explore martial arts in a safe and friendly atmosphere. Many people come in because they want to do something fun and their child has an interest in Ninja Turtles, Power Rangers or Kung Fu Panda. That is a great reason! We have many families that sign up because it's something they want to do and then find out that it's something they need!
Whatever your reason for coming in and trying class we look forward to guiding you and your child on your Martial Art Journey.
