HELP IN ONE OF THESE AREAS?
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE & PATIENCE
It 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. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
LEARN THE VALUE OF RESPECTING THEMSELVES & OTHERS
Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to respect all authority figures.
In our martial arts school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.
Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.
JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS
Whether they’re in a martial arts class or in a competition, 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 judgments.
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 epidemic 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 challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.
The study of martial arts requires 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.
I’ve been a Karate America parent for over 3 years. I’ve proudly watched my oldest son grow from a Little Ninja to a Young Achiever, and he recently advanced to Intermediate class. This was a big step forward, and I was concerned with the many changes that awaited my son. For one, I recognized that the curriculum would be much more rigorous, including weekly sparring. In addition, he would be moving on to new instructors. However, all of my fears melted away as I watched his first class. The many years of practice at Karate America had prepared my son beautifully! He was ready for this next step, and his confidence radiated through, even as he stepped onto the floor, weighed down in new sparring gear, facing a new level with new instructors and new classmates. Secondly, the instructors were phenomenal! Mr. Kozlowski held the bar high while breaking down the steps of kicks and forms into manageable pieces. Mr. Stravropoulos consistently encouraged my son while skillfully explaining and demonstrating ways that he could improve his technique. The feedback was specific, easily understood, and very motivating. After my son’s first sparring class, he walked off the floor and exclaimed, “Best karate class ever!” I couldn’t be happier with Karate America! Thank you to the many fabulous instructors! You are all making a tremendous difference in children’s lives! I can’t wait to see what lies ahead on the path to black belt!
We had an amazing experience from the moment we walked in the door. Every single person was polite, respectful and knowledgeable. We initially wanted to see if our 3 year old son was ready to begin karate (not yet, but hopefully this winter!) and instead my husband and I ended up taking a class. I fell in love with the entire experience right away and am very excited to see how Karate America Brookfield will help me grow in my skills, my relationships and my respect for myself and others. I would suggest Mr. Mealy and the entire Karate America Brookfield team to anyone who is ready to take this wonderful step in their life too!
My son started learning karate from 2016 February at KA, Brookfield. He simply loves the place & masters…. Its an awesome feel being in the karate america family. Keep up the good work.
My boys have truly enjoyed growing with you guys and although we may not be able to afford to keep coming we thank you so much for all the care you have put into the kids
My son has been with Karate America for a year and a half now…as a single mother I appreciate the instructors so much as they play such an important role in my sons life! He loves every minute of karate and loves his instructors!
