Even though they are very smart, they tend to make boneheaded decisions that sometimes get them in trouble.
They are all over the emotional spectrum, and their moods can shift at the slightest provocation.
They often bow to peer pressure because they care too much about what their friends think.
& DYNAMIC MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM FOR AGES 10 to 14
Junior Karate SKILLZ
By understanding the stages of development in kids ages 10 to 14, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up our Jr Karate SKILLZ Program:
We’re taking Martial Arts training to a whole new level!
We use basic elements of our traditional Okinawan Karate curriculum to build skills that are appropriate for 10 to 14-year old’s. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging.
The best part is that our Jr Karate SKILLZ Program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life for years to come!
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
The solution we found is to provide tweens and teens with their own program that targets their unique needs and abilities based on their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them up for success.
Kids between 10 and 14 typically have great technique and agility, but they can be lazy which leads to sloppiness.
We expect them to initially be sloppy on things that are easy physically.
The goal of our program is to get them to understand their potential if they pay attention the intricate details. We normally bypass the basics elements of physical development and jump right into the complicated details.
Tweens and teens are extremely smart. Their critical thinking skills are top-notch, but their decision-making skills are typically the exact opposite, and that is why most adults treat them as a child.
We expect them to initially make choices that are easy as compared to applying thought and effort.
The goal of our program is to get them to see the bigger picture and apply their intellect.
Thanks to science, kids at this stage of development are typically all over the emotional spectrum. This is more prominent in boys than girls.
We expect their efforts to be based on what they think is cool.
The goal of our program is to help them apply intrinsic motivation and realize their true potential. Our goal is to also help them improve their decision-making skills with drills that challenge their reaction time.
These kids care about what their peers think. If something is cool, then they will put more effort into it.
We expect them to initially hold back if they are uncomfortable as a defense mechanism.
The goal of our program is to help them excel at everything they do, especially in front of a crowd.
A great place; highly recommended. The owners are continually invested in the program.
It transforms my body like no other… I feel stronger, I have long leaner muscles… it’s my Prozac for the day… I’ve built great friendships… if you want to transform your body this is a great place to start.
It is absolutely the most challenging fitness activity that I’ve participated in… my butt is tighter and my posture is much better… it’s great for your brain… and there’s lots of camaraderie and you feel that friendship from the other participants.
My daughter started a few months ago and has enjoyed the challenges, friendships, structure, community and education that sensei Chris Murphy provides. There is never a moment she isn’t excited to go to class! As a parent I have noticed the difference in my child’s focus, attitude and confidence not only about herself but in what she is doing as well!! Thank you sensei!!!
Our son goes to Glens Falls Karate Academy. They are very welcoming and have a great program. The Sensei is amazing with children!
Chris really knows his stuff, and is such a nice guy too. He’s a great teacher! We are lucky to have him in our community.
My son was looking for a new athletic activity this past Spring and decided to try karate. I couldn’t be happier with Glens Falls Karate Academy, and the positive influence Sensei Murphy has had on my son. It’s a great program for athletes of all abilities. Great place!
