Kid's Karate Classes
What will my child be learning?
There are many things your child will learn as a student of Dojo One. Martial arts in general teaches many physical and mental lessons they will be able to apply to their everyday life. Most importantly, the skills your child will learn will be "life skills" that will stay with your child through out their life helping them to succeed and achieve their full potential in all aspects of their lives.
For starters, your child will learn the 9 steps to achieving a black belt: Respect, Discipline, Confidence, Focus, Dedication, Perseverance, Leadership, and Honor. Along their journey, your child will earn different colored belts to signify their "rank". At each level, one of these steps will be taught to them as a means of teaching your child about goal setting, and giving them the satisfaction of learning to set and achieve goals. This will become a way of life for your child and a means for success!
At Dojo One, Your child will learn an American Freestyle version of martial arts. With roots in Kenpo, Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing, and an emphasis on Performance martial arts, this mix of different martial arts styles will give your child a great knowledge of common martial arts techniques which can be used for both performance and competition martial arts and most importantly self-defense should your child ever need to defend themselves.
Why should I enroll my child in martial arts?
There are endless benefits to training in the martial arts. The discipline you learn becomes a way of life that your child will put towards everything they do. Some of the aspects of martial arts training will be some of the toughest challenges your child will face. Once they learn to over come these obstacles by putting their mind to achieving their goals, most other life challenges will be a breeze for them. This will also be a huge confidence boost for them.
If nothing else, martial arts is a great way to get your child to put down the video games, get off the couch, and get out and exercise while socializing with peers. This will help create a much healthier lifestyle for them and help make being active a way of life. Being healthy and exercising with friends is another great way to boost your child's self confidence and self esteem.
In a day and age where "BULLYING" is such a big problem for many children, martial arts is one of the biggest aids to stopping your child from being bullied. Sure, the self defense techniques your child will learn can be a big help should your child ever need to defend his or her self, but most of the time, the confidence alone, that your child will gain through martial arts, is enough to deter bullies from targeting them. The leadership skills they learn will teach them to stand up for other kids who are being bullied and help them to make the right decisions when it comes to peer pressure.
