“Who has confidence in himself will gain the confidence of others.”

– Leib Lazarow



This month your child will be studying the character word: SELF-CONFIDENCE. Self-confidence is an important character trait. Those who have self-confidence tend to be more content with life. They bounce back faster from challenges; they are not afraid to take risks and learn new things; they accomplish more because they believe in their abilities; and they stay committed to sports and activities longer because they do not let obstacles get in their way.

Here is a guideline regarding children and self-confidence based on age:

  • With children ages 3 to 5; they are learning about things that make them feel good. Teach them how to believe in themselves by saying positive things about themselves.
  • With children ages 5 to 7; they are learning how to process both positive and negative feelings. Teach them how to overcome negative feelings by focusing on positive feelings.
  • With children ages 8 and 12; they are learning how to identify other people that are confident. Teach them how to look up to and copy confident people.
  • With children ages 13 and up; they are learning how to be self-reliant. Teach them how to set and accomplish personal goals.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to watching our youthful students build the skill of self-confidence!

Sincerely,
Glens Falls Karate Academy

About our programs

Early SKILLZ
Preschool - Kindergarten

3–4 year-olds are naturally curious. They might not be ready for the rigid structure of a traditional martial arts class ... but they do need to start learning about appropriate social behavior!

- DISCOVER -

Basic SKILLZ
1st Grade - 3rd Grade

It's often easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5-6 year old children. They're better at following directions and paying attention than younger children, but they still need some help controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.
- DISCOVER -

Core SKILLZ
3rd Grade - 5th Grade

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily - far more easily than we do as adults. Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, but they're also learning the value of self-discipline and respect.

Junior Karate SKILLZ
Middle School Program

Karate may normally make you think of self-defense, fitness, and discipline ... the truth is, it's all of that and WAY more!
Our program helps our students build skills that they can APPLY to every area of their life and empower them to be the very best they can possibly be!

Teens Karate
High School Program

Instead of giving into the moodiness and attitude, take them to our dojo instead! Teenagers are smart and capable - but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their innate urge to rebel against their parents, and their surging hormones, they can be impossible to be around. But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations - and an opportunity to be their best.- DISCOVER -

Adult Karate
Ages 17+

Martial arts training is fun, empowering, and provides a great workout for adults. Studying martial arts is something that anybody - at any age or fitness level - can do. Our programs make learning fun, empowering, and provides a great workout for busy parents!
