Children's Martial Arts Self Defense Classes
I've taught kids martial arts classes for years and as you can imagine, I've seen every kind of personality you can think of in a child. Rambunctious, shy, defiant, complacent...every child is different, with special gifts to give and challenges to overcome, and I've seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and focus.
We've seen ultra-shy kids burst out of their shell, ADD and ADHD kids learn how to control themselves, socially awkward kids learn how to make and keep friends, and even helped special needs children find a place to fit in and feel accepted. So, what I'll do on this page is tell you a little about what our focus is in our classes, and what methods we use to achieve our results. Take a look at what we do, and see if our philosophy on the Martial Arts mat lines up with your goals as a parent, and if what we teach would be beneficial in your child's life. Again, THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts - it was literally the BEST thing that ever happened to me when I was young, and I think it's possible that it could be the same for your child.
School Pressure, Peer Pressure, Instilling Proper Values, Demanding Extra Curricular Activities
I know what parents like you are facing. I've met thousands of parents just like you and I have to tell you, it's a tough time for kids these days.
Most parents I meet are dealing with these daily 21st Century demands as well as they can, but sometimes the signs of the pressure are obvious. When new students come into our school we often see:
- Inability to Focus
- Crippling Shyness
- Difficulty Engaging with Peers or Authority Figures
- Lack of Follow Through or Perseverance
- Lack of Motivation
- Low Fitness Levels
It Can All Change
- Within a Few Weeks, Parents Say They See Their Children Learn:
- Increased Confidence
- The Ability to Defend Themselves Mentally, Emotionally AND Physically
- Soaring Self Esteem
- An Appreciation for Exercise
Here are Leominster Budo Kai Martial Arts, our classes are specifically designed for kids and that's really important
How children are treated and taught makes a huge difference in their experience, and therefore their ability. When they're engaged and excited, children learn really well. It seems obvious, but so often kids are "forced" to learn. At our school, they LOVE learning!
We offer a "Group Sport" with an individual focus
Your child will interact with others, work with partners and listen to the instructor as a member of the group; but they'll never "ride the bench". They'll be held to their own standard; no one else's. Every child is unique and our Martial Arts classes offer a fantastic opportunity to capitalize on their natural strengths to bolster their Self Esteem so that they have the emotional and mental capability to tackle areas that need work.
Again, THANK YOU for considering Leominstyer Budo Kai Martial Arts. For our instructors and students, it’s been one of the best things they’ve ever done, and I think it's possible that it could be the same for you.
