The greatest investment you can make is in your children. The rewards your child will receive from martial arts training will last a lifetime. My children’s martial arts program is unique in many ways. I offer a traditional, structured yet innovative martial arts curriculum in a safe, relaxed and positive atmosphere.

You’ve probably heard all about how Karate lessons can help kids become physically fit and learn lifesaving self-defense skills. Sure, I teach them how to kick and punch. But that’s just the start.

I do so much more for children of all ages in our program. I am committed to their personal development and teach valuable life skills. My program provides guidance and role models to build moral character. I help kids grow in the areas of honesty, kindness, self-control, leadership, perseverance, responsibility, commitment, loyalty, compassion and much more. As a martial arts instructor, I am interested in restoring the qualities of respect and courtesy in children. My program promotes a healthy lifestyle and encourages a positive mental attitude.

In addition, children practice quality martial arts drills that enhance skills such as listening, following directions, playing fair, and taking turns. Kids learn the importance of teamwork, putting their differences aside and embracing diversity.

My program provides the training that is necessary to develop the many hidden strengths and abilities in kids. I help them realize that they have the potential to do better and motivate them to reach new levels of performance.

In today’s world of immediate gratification, it’s more difficult to teach children the value of working towards goals and the satisfaction that comes from a job well done. I focus on reinforcing traditional martial arts values. I encourage students to set goals, try their best, practice patience, persevere and achieve. As they progress in their training, they gain a sense of accomplishment and their confidence grows. My students take pride in hard work and achieve their belts the old fashioned way. They earn them!

Kids love my program because it’s fun, exciting and challenging. Parents love my program because their children grow physically, intellectually, spiritually, socially and emotional. These benefits last for a lifetime!

Private lessons will increase your progress in the martial arts 2-3 times faster than by taking group lessons alone. The personalized attention and energy of an instructor is a tremendous advantage. Group lessons are good because they allow you to see how different people react to similar situations and techniques. You get to meet new people and make new friends. The best of both worlds is a program that offers both group and private lessons.
