If you’re like most parents you’ve probably experienced moments where you’ve asked your child to do something and it took you a few repeats to get them to finally do what you’ve asked. Maybe you’ve sat around wondering if my child is having a hard time listening now, how will I deal with other issues as they arise?
Have you ever experienced any of the following:
Having to ask your child more than once to do something? You’ve asked them to clean their room, but getting them to turn off the tv and do what you’ve asked them multiple times is like pulling teeth.
Getting your child to focus on a given task? It’s time for them to do their homework, but all they want to do is play. Perhaps you’ve asked them to get their books and assignments out, but instead, they have their toys all over the living room floor.
Making sure your little one is paying attention when you’re trying to explain something? You’re trying to have a serious conversation about crossing the street or strangers, and all they can talk about is how bobby picked his nose at school then ate it. Ever been there?
Low Self Esteem? Maybe your child just doesn’t seem motivated or they’re having a hard time believing in themselves. Perhaps they don’t feel they’re good enough or better yet, they’ll never get good grades because they just aren’t smart enough.
Having your child act out at school or in public? Have you ever received a phone call or email from a teacher saying your child was acting out in class or playing too aggressively at recess? Maybe you’ve been pulling your hair out because you can’t get your kids to get along at home and not fight.
Trust me, YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
So many parents that come to us suffer the exact same struggles. Many of them were at a point where they didn’t know what to do or how to help. Truth is, we all want the absolute best for our kids, we want them to succeed, set goals, feel great about themselves but sometimes we as parents need help. Sometimes having a great support system and a team to work with is the answer. Have you ever heard someone say how amazing their child is and all you could think was why not my kid?
We Can Help!
We’ve seen all different types of students, we have even had that “amazing” kid in class. Guess what, that amazing kid WAS amazing, but what their parents didn’t tell their friends was that their child had low self-esteem. They were a great listener, could focus on anything and everything, but had a hard time with believing in themselves.
Early Skillz - 3 1/2 and four-year year old’s love physical activity and anything involving play. They have a rich imagination and strong desire to be less dependent on their usual caregivers. The problem we discovered is that many children this age have a hard time with structure in a group environment like what is commonly found in most Martial Arts schools. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that keeps them entertained while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said, a structured program introducing early skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
Basic Skillz - for 5 & 6-year-olds! Five and six-year old’s are the most enthusiastic students. They love creativity and problem-solving, which makes them ideal students in the Martial Arts. The problem we discovered is they are so progressive in following tasks, some teachers tend to treat them like their older peers. This is a problem because they still do not have the basic skills necessary to keep up with children ages 7 and up. The solution we found is to provide them with their own program that targets their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their social and intellectual curiosity while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing basic skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
Kids Taekwondo - for 7 to 10-year-olds! Seven to
Pre-Teen and Teen Taekwondo - for 11-year-olds and up! Eleven years old and up are the smartest students in the school. Yes, they are smarter than most adults! They are also physically competent and can excel in most physical challenges that are presented to them. The problem we discovered is they are so focused on what is socially acceptable that they have a hard time keeping themselves emotionally driven to the task at hand. The solution we found is to provide them with their own class that targets their stage of development in a manner that nurtures their social and emotional instability while at the same time building skills that set them up for success. With that said a structured program introducing challenging skill-based training in Martial Arts has proven to be very successful.
Studies show that children who are active in Martial Arts programs do better in school AND have a better home life!
