KIDS MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAMS

Are these common things you see with your child?

  • They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything
  • They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation
  • They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.

Benefits for your child for training in Soo Bahk Do

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.

Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.

We are teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This is done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility and promoting health and fitness

RESPECT IS A CORNERSTONE OF MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTION

Martial arts teach the importance of respect in everything we do.

We teach students to respect their instructors and fellow students. They can’t succeed without respecting everyone in the studio.

Over time, the instinct to respect others becomes deeply ingrained – and your child will carry it with them forever.

LEARNING DISCIPLINE CREATES OPPORTUNITIES

Nobody can succeed in life without the discipline to keep going even when things are difficult.

Our students learn discipline and persistence. Martial arts training requires true diligence and that’s not possible without discipline.

Students are always held to the highest standard of behaviour – and the discipline they learn here will help them everywhere else.

KIDS DON’T GET LABELED IN MARTIAL ARTS

One of the most damaging things that can happen to kids in school is that they get labeled: the fat kid, the clumsy kid, and so on. In our school, they’re all just martial arts kids!

Kids learn to trust themselves and their abilities. As a result, their confidence soars.

Physical self-confidence leads to intellectual and emotional self-esteem, and martial arts can help kids carry themselves with a deep-seated sense of confidence and authority.

STUDENTS LEARN TO FOCUS ON WHAT’S IMPORTANT

Martial arts training puts a strong emphasis on the importance of focus, and that carries over to home and the classroom, as well as the playground and beyond.

Today’s kids often have difficulty with paying attention, but martial arts training helps keep their eyes on the prize.
