PARENTS EVERYWHERE ARE ASTONISHED BY THE IMPACT MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES IN Waldorf ARE HAVING ON THEIR CHILD!

You might naturally associate martial arts with hollywood stunts and kicks and punches, but the self defense aspect of Martial Arts is just a part of it. Sure, children that learn Martial Arts develop the confidence to know that if they are being bullied, they have skills to defend themselves, but the truth is that the real skills we teach are how to defuse situations with words before they ever escalate to a physical level.
 

We teach Children to focus, and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill that shows immediate results in their academic work. 

 

Martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.


And did we mention Martial Arts are FUN!
 

Consider these benefits of Martial Arts when enrolling your child:
 

• Fostering self-discipline

• Boosting socialization skills

• Encouraging physical activity

• Learning to set and achieve goals

• Increased self-esteem

• Instilling a sense of respect

• Encouraging non-violent conflict resolution

• Improving listening skills

• Developing teamwork skills

• Improvement in other areas of life


What does "improvement in other areas of life" mean? It can mean a lot of things such as getting better grades in school, knowing how to use anti-bullying programs to prevent violence amongst peers, or simply the appreciation that comes from learning a difficult skill.

Perhaps most importantly, students learn that physical activity is a healthy way to have fun. With health problems like diabetes and obesity afflicting younger people more often, parents should take steps to help their children avoid similar issues. Children's martial arts gives them a fun way to exercise, learn crucial life lessons, and develop a sense of self-reliance.

At Our Martial Arts School we Teach the Same Values You Teach at Home.

Lil Heroes

This program was designed specifically for children ages 4 to 5 years old. In the Lil Heroes Program, your child will learn and grow in a process that accommodates their skills and abilities. They will train with other children in their age group, and will not be distracted by younger or older classmates. Their training will not be slowed down due to the learning abilities of a younger child; and it will not be sped up to keep up with the capabilities of a pre-teen. This means better, more functional classes designed just for them. Your child will feel comfortable and more capable of achieving excellence. They are at an age where the more special they feel, the harder they will try.

 

The Lil Heroes Program is structured on a rotational curriculum that teaches 8 very important skills. The 8 advanced skills selected for the Lil Heroes program were broken down into specific requirements that each student will tackle at every belt level. This means your child will be sharper, more focused, and better developed physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially than a child who does not participate in a program strategically designed like the Little Dragons Program.

Karate for KIDZ

Martial arts is about a lot more than learning how to just punch and kick. It’s about hard work, discipline, and perseverance. 
 

Our martial arts classes foster respect in all senses of the word. Your children will learn not only to respect others, but to respect themselves as well. Martial arts training teaches confidence, discipline, leadership, self-control, and stress relief. It gives your child the tools they need to diffuse a bullying situation. Martial arts is a social experience that pairs your children with likeminded children and adults. It teaches them to interact and work with others. Not only that, it’s incredibly good exercise, keeping your children healthy and happy!
