PARENTS EVERYWHERE ARE ASTONISHED BY THE IMPACT MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES IN Athens ARE HAVING ON THEIR CHILD!

You might naturally associate martial arts with Hollywood stunts and kicks and punches, but the self defense aspect of Martial Arts is just a part of it. Sure, children that learn Martial Arts develop the confidence to know that if they are being bullied, they have skills to defend themselves, but the truth is that the real skills we teach are how to defuse situations with words before they ever escalate to a physical level.

We teach Children to focus, and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill that shows immediate results in their academic work. 

Martial arts actually help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.


And did we mention Martial Arts are FUN!

Consider these benefits of Martial Arts when enrolling your child:
 

• Fostering self-discipline

• Boosting socialization skills

• Encouraging physical activity

• Learning to set and achieve goals

• Increased self-esteem

• Instilling a sense of respect

• Encouraging non-violent conflict resolution

• Improving listening skills

• Developing teamwork skills

• Improvement in other areas of life


What does "improvement in other areas of life" mean? It can mean a lot of things such as getting better grades in school, knowing how to use anti-bullying programs to prevent violence amongst peers, or simply the appreciation that comes from learning a difficult skill.

Perhaps most importantly, students learn that physical activity is a healthy way to have fun. With health problems like diabetes and obesity afflicting younger people more often, parents should take steps to help their children avoid similar issues. Children's martial arts gives them a fun way to exercise, learn crucial life lessons, and develop a sense of self-reliance.

At Our Martial Arts School we Teach the Same Values You Teach at Home.

"The instructors here are amazing. They go way above and beyond in helping the kids to excel not only while they are here but also when they are not. I cannot express enough appreciation for everything they have done for my son. His confidence has risen, his attitude has improved, and he has a found a passion for something beyond tablets and video games. Thank you for teaching him more than just tae kwon do. You're also teaching him how to be the best him he can be."
