February Mat Chat | COOPERATION

Dear Parents,

This month we will be working on the character lesson: COOPERATION.

Cooperation is a must have skill in life, and we are in a unique position to help our students learn how to use it. When this skill is present, the child understands how to balance his or her own needs and wants with the needs and wants of others. Many people think that cooperation means the child does what the adult wants, because cooperating means to follow directions. That’s not the case. True cooperation is a give and take between people that ends up with something they both agree on.

Here is a guideline regarding children and cooperation based on age:

  • With children ages 3 and 4;
    They are learning how to follow rules. Teach them how to follow the rules without getting angry.
  • With children ages 5 and 6;
    They are learning how to problem solve. Teach them about making choices that are fair for everyone involved.
  • With children ages 7 and 9;
    They are learning how to work in groups. Teach them how to be inclusive and not to exclude anyone.
  • With children ages 10 and up;
    They are learning the power of support. Teach them how to encourage each other and make everyone feel needed.

Be sure to point out when you see cooperation displayed at home.

Acknowledging them when they cooperate and explaining the benefits from their cooperation is the best way to build this skill. You can help your children become better individuals simply by emphasizing all of the content in this month’s character lesson!

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

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!
