Dear Parents,

Our goal is to help our students balance both physical and mental development. We want our students to be well-rounded individuals. To do so, each month we focus on a new character word that will help our youthful students become better citizens. Having strong character is an important part of leading a fulfilling life. We believe that having character is just as important as academic and athletic achievements.

This month, we will focus on TEAMWORK. There are so many areas in life where teamwork is important. We as Martial Artists are in a unique position to instill activities that properly engage children with other children their own age. By participating in age-appropriate activities that teach teamwork, you will notice your child become a better citizen in social circles, and a better family participant at home.

You can help by fostering teamwork at home. To help support teamwork objectives, try the following strategies:

  • Make a list of the chores that must be done around the house and have your child pick the chores that are appropriate for his or her age.
  • Play family games and model good sportsmanship and fair play.
  • Have your child participate in helping with more difficult chores such as cooking, yard work, organizing, washing the car, etc.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to watching our youthful students build the skill of TEAMWORK.

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.
- DISCOVER -

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!
