Programs We Offer:
4-6 year old "Lil" Ninja Martial Arts Program
We designed our “Lil' Ninja program to be fun, and to encourage self-discipline through physical activity. Large motor skills, such as punching and kicking are a great way for children to develop coordination and balance. Each class, the children participate in group activities, that help to foster a sense of camaraderie. By sharing common goals, many of the children have an easier time making friends and thus improve their social skills. Our certified and professional staff uses positive reinforcement to help build the child’s self-confidence and to help them develop a positive attitude. Parents are often amazed at the improvements in the children’s self-discipline. Our accomplishment-based system of colored belts helps to teach the children to set and achieve goals. Listening skills improve and attention spans increase as the children strive to achieve their next colored belt. Our staff works closely with you to make sure that all of your goals are reached as well!
7-12 Children Martial Arts
There are many benefits for children who train in the martial arts. While most parents expect their children to learn the basic tenets of self-defense in our classes, many are surprised when their children’s martial arts training also carries over into other aspects of their lives. We designed our rules-based children’s program to be fun and to help them to develop physically, mentally and socially. Our certified and professional staff follows and teaches five rules to help the children progress in our achievement-based system of colored belts. These rules are:
· Effort – All students are encouraged to do their best. We believe that continuous effort is the key to unlocking potential.
· Etiquette - We base our program on respect. We teach our students to respect the instructors, each other, and most importantly, themselves.
· Sincerity – Honesty is important in the martial arts. Being honest about your weaknesses is the first step to improving them!
· Character - Honesty, courage, optimism, and integrity are all qualities we try to instill in our students. All are traits of a positive attitude!
· Self Control – Determination and concentration developed through self-discipline.
Many of the activities the children engage in will help to improve their overall physical fitness. Over time, our specifically designed workouts will help the children to develop strength and stamina. Moreover, large motor skills, such as kicking and punching aid in the development of coordination and balance. Parents oftentimes see a noticeable improvement in the children’s self-discipline and dispositions as they learn and follow the five rules. Attention spans increase, and listening skills improve as the children strive to achieve the proficiency necessary to receive their next colored belt. Friendships often develop between the students as they share common goals and work together to learn self-defensetechniques. Finally, our staff works closely with you to make sure all your goals are reached.
School bullying has serious short-term and long-term effects on children’s physical and mental health. Various anti-bullying programs have been implemented world wide and, more rarely, evaluated. Previous narrative reviews, summarizing the work done on bullying prevention, as well as previous meta-analyses of anti-bullying programs, are limited. The definition of school bullying includes several key elements: physical, verbal, or psychological attack or intimidation that is intended to cause fear, distress, or harm to the victim; an imbalance of power (psychological or physical), with a more powerful child (or children) oppressing less powerful ones; and repeated incidents between the same children over a prolonged period. School bullying can occur in school or on the way to or from school. It is not bullying when two persons of the same strength (physical, psychological, or verbal) victimize each other.
