MARTIAL ARTS FOR BOTH CHILDREN AND ADULTS!

Pre-Evaluations – Why Are They Necessary?

As you know (and just in case you didn’t), Glens Falls Karate Academy is committed to bringing you the BEST in Age Specific Martial Arts!

Dwindling are the days of the “dungeon dojo” and authoritarian discipline that many who grew up in the martial arts have come to expect … have you watched Cobra Kai yet?

As times change it’s important to recognize that what once worked in the “good ‘ol days” isn’t what works today. As with any growing industry, leaders must adapt and learn from new science and new technology for one main reason (in my opinion) …

To learn, innovate, apply, and so that we may pass on the proven benefits to our customers, to our students, to YOU!

One way that Glens Falls Karate Academy is able to do this, is through the use of our Pre-Evaluations!

This 15 minute interview that each student receives before jumping into our group classes is one of our most powerful tools! But, how?

Easy. Everyone has heard that “knowledge is power”.

Our Age Specific Pre-Evaluations are meant to help us gather information about each individual student. Our staff wants to take the time to peel back the layers and learn what makes each prospective student special. We understand that not only is each student different, they differ widely physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially.

During each Pre-Evaluation our instructors are constantly evaluating the strengths and challenges of each prospective student. With this knowledge, we now understand how to highlight their strength, as well as, build up their weak points.

Another strength of our Pre-Evaluation process lies in being able to better determine which atmosphere at our Academy will best suit a prospective students stage of development which can range from a private lesson basis, normal group classes, or even accelerating them to the next age group. With this knowledge, we are able to make an educated decision as to a training regimen that will keep each student motivated, and more importantly, progressing in their development while having fun!


MOST IMPORTANTLY …


This service is always FREE at Glens Falls Karate Academy, and allows our instructors to create that “all important” bond with a student so that starting a new activity is no longer intimidating! They actually enter the class already having a friend to look up to!

Our job as instructors and mentors often extends beyond simply teaching martial arts. I routinely find post after post in leading martial arts forums about how instructors go above and beyond to find the best ways to teach, guide and foster the talent and morals of our students! It is an honor to be at the forefront of this movement in our industry and our Pre-Evaluations are our first step to helping each of our students become a better version of themselves!

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 -
