“The difference between impossible and possible lies in a man’s determination.”

~ Tommy LaSorda ~


Dear Parents,

This month we are covering the character word: DETERMINATION. Determination is a positive character trait. A person with determination Is someone that sets goals and does not give up. If there Is something this person wants to do, he or she will not give up easily or be distracted by something else. It is important that we teach our children how to have determination and that they will reap the rewards by accomplishing worthwhile goals.

Here Is a guideline regarding children and determination based on age:

  • With kids ages 3 to 5; they are starting to learn many new skills. Teach them how to improve upon their skills by not giving up too easily.
  • With kids ages 5 to 8; they are learning how to make positive choices. Teach them how to make grand choices that require determination.
  • With kids ages 8 to 12; they are learning how to make positive choices. Teach them how to make grand choices that require determination.
  • With kids ages 12 and up; they are learning how to make positive choices. Teach them how to make grand choices that require determination.

Make sure that you don’t push your children over their limits. The goal for this month’s character lesson is to help nurture your children’s abilities to persevere through tasks that are attainable. Be sure to also point out the many benefits they gain from having great determination.

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

DETERMINATION!
Sincerely, GFKA Staff

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!
