OUR FOCUS IS ON THE TOTAL CHILD
We teach the physical techniques in martial arts to develop improved focus, self discipline, and fitness. We also incorporate character and life skills training through stories and motivational talks during class. Our goal is not just to teach students how to punch or kick, anyone can do that.
Our focus is developing champion citizens as well as skilled martial artists, through the practice of martial arts.
We begin with self-improvement. We help our kids develop goal setting skills through our 3-step formula.
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer your self any direction you choose. You’re on your own and you know what you know. And you’ll be the guy who’ll decide where you’ll go. Oh --- the places you’ll go.”
THE HERO DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Master Elkins has been a martial arts educator for over twenty four years. He also teaches at an alternative school for at risk youth as a counselor and life skills coach. Master Elkins is the founder of the HERO Program. HERO is an acronym for Helping Everyone Respect Others. Master Elkins has written and developed stories, journals, and weekly lessons to empower children to be better citizens.
While teaching self-discipline, we also teach our kids the art of self-defense. Never undervalue this important life skill. Kids today face more bullies and negative peer pressure to take drugs and alcohol then at any time in our history. At Elkins Karate, we teach a realistic self-defense system that empowers kids to deal with bullying, negative peer pressure, and stranger awareness. They also learn conflict resolution and when they should and shouldn’t use their skills.
Studies have shown that ...
When you combine Knowledge, Skill, and Attitude, you get a more happy and self-confident child. Being self-confident means – your child will believe in his/herself.
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind
Television, Soft drinks, Video Games, and Fast Food.
These are just a few of the challenges kids face today. Combine these with a decrease in school gym classes, and it’s easy to see why childhood obesity among our kids has more than doubled in our country in the last twenty years.
It takes energy to create energy. At Elkins Karate we help children associate being active to more energy, and a more positive attitude.
Our kid’s classes are taught in a safe, fun and exciting environment, where students are not compared to each other, but rather progress at their own pace. There are no bench warmers in martial arts, everyone participates and progresses at their own pace.
It’s easy! Have your son or daughter try a private introductory class with one of our instructors. Afterwards, you’ll have a consultation to discuss goals, scheduling and our programs.
"Master Elkins has been at it for ever. Full of knowledge and skill. Highly recommend!"
