A PROGRAM DEVELOPED FOR THE NEEDS & ABILITIES OF TEENS

TALENT CAN’T BE TAUGHT
BUT IT CAN BE INSPIRED

Teenagers are smart and capable – but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their their need to discover themselves, and their search for acceptance, they can seem impossible to keep up with. All they need is an outlet for their frustrations – and an opportunity to discover how to be their best.

TEENS ARE HIGHLY INTELLIGENT & PHYSICAL CAPABLE

HOWEVER …

They often make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to develop better judgment, which is why most adults tend to talk to them like kids.

They’re facing bullying at school on a daily basis – or they’re the one doing the bullying. Peer pressure and need for acceptance is a constant presence.

They tend to have low self-esteem and seem to be moody all the time. They give up when things get challenging and fail to meet their goals.

RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE & PATIENCE

It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.

Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.

YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-discipline and control with every lesson.

Our classes emphasize core values like a healthy body, discipline, self-respect, and persistence.

Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.

LEARN THE VALUE OF RESPECTING THEMSELVES & OTHERS

Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to respect all authority figures.

In our martial arts school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.

Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.

JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS

Whether they’re in a martial arts class or in a competition, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.

Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.

They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make judgments.

GET YOUR TEEN OFF THE COUCH AND INTO MARTIAL ARTS

It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.

The electronics epidemic might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.

Martial arts classes provide teens with challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.

LEARN HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS

Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.

The study of martial arts requires them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.

Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.
