Pressure, Peer Pressure, Instilling Proper Values,
Demanding Extra Curricular
I know what parents like you are
facing these days. 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
not malicious, they just have a really hard time focusing
Eyes on the
floor, shoulders down, frozen in fear
Engaging with Peers or Authority Figures
often see this as a lack of respect (It?s NOT! But it?s still important to
Lack of Follow
Through or Perseverance
hard for a child to see past the ?now? and keep at something consistently
Lack of Motivation
hard to be a kid and have people telling you all day what to do. Some kids just
shut down and lose their sense of personal motivation.
Low Fitness Levels
Obesity isn?t just a new buzzword. When iPads and Phones are a dime a dozen,
getting kids to get off the couch and move is a real challenge.
We've specifically designed our classes to help your
child build the life skills they need to work through their challenges and
become the confident, capable adolescents that we all know they can be.
It Can All Change
Within a Few
Weeks, Parents Say They See Their Children Learn:
Confidence, especially in our Martial Arts classes,
is the difference between what a child can actually do vs. what they think
they can do. You?ll see them grow more and more confident, and confront new challenges both inside and outside of
our school with a sense of drive and purpose.
Ability to Defend Themselves Mentally, Emotionally AND Physically
If they ever need it, your child will absolutely be
able to defend themselves physically. But far more importantly, they?ll be able to fend off the mental onslaught of
peer pressure and the emotional weight of bullying and unkind behavior.
These are things they?ll desperately need as they grow older.
The most important thing your child will get in our
classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. They?ll be able to
objectively recognize things they need to improve (homework, family
interaction, physical effort) without feeling hopeless, and they?ll take pride in the things they get right without discounting or minimizing their achievements. This will be
invaluable for them as adults.
Appreciation for Exercise
If you want kids to stay healthy, they have to
enjoy their exercise. Our classes are so much fun, your child will beg to come.
They?ll actually love doing pushups, jumping jacks and crunches. They?ll take
pride in their improved flexibility and stamina, and they?ll leave class
everyday sweating and smiling.
How? The Answer isn?t rocket science, and honestly, We feel blessed to have
discovered it. It's simple and subtle, but when you see it in person
(especially as a parent) It?s almost Magical. "The Answer" solves
every one of the issues we mentioned, and more.

Class Reviews from Real Parents
We Think It's Great, But What About Regular Parents?
My kids both attend the Academy and the Black Belts emulate Life Lessons, anyone can teach them to punch, kick defend themselves but it is the Life Skills that they will use for the rest of their lives that matter. Thank You to Mr. Deaver and his staff for all that they do for the students.
daughter attends and loves it. Kevin and his team of instructors do not just
focus on the fundamentals but are caring and compassionate teachers. Great
has been attending for 4 years, and we are so happy with how much he has
learned and progressed. The instructors are patient and great with the kids.
It's very affordable, especially when they can attend class up to 5 times per
week. We love how respect is emphasized both in and outside the classroom.
youngest daughter, husband and I have attended the Academy of Martial Arts for
2 years. We love the program and the people! Literally some of the best people
around! This program makes us feel strong, smart and youthful! Give it a try!!
been a great experience. The dojo has a wonderful personality. The instructors
teach in a patient positive way, teaching good behavior and positive attitude
along with the martial arts.?I highly recommend, especially the junior Black
Belt leadership program.?My daughter has enjoyed it and is progressing well..
has received outstanding instruction and support from your academy. His new
goal is to earn 2nd degree!
so much for sharing your passion and knowledge and for caring so much about
to you, Mrs. Deaver, and all of your instructors.
to drop a word of appreciation for the conduct and professionalism of your new
instructors (I have yet to know their names but they are teaching tonight).
They are wonderful with the kids and the parents and extremely knowledgable and
kind. They impress me with their auras, if that makes sense. Quiet and wise and
disciplined. Feel free to share this with them if you would like to do so.
