There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.

Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?

But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.



Kids who don’t respect themselves and others often have difficulties in school and in life. Martial arts teaches the importance of respect every day.

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.



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 held to the highest standard of behavior at all times – and the discipline they learn here will help them everywhere else.



Children who are bullied often suffer from low self-esteem, fear, and poor school performance. Their lives revolve around the actions of bullies.

Bullies focus on kids who seem fearful or vulnerable, but martial arts teaches kids to be confident and self-assured.

Martial arts build mental, emotional, and physical strength – and by teaching self-respect, it helps children believe in themselves, which makes them poor targets for bullies.



Children bully other children out of a lack of self-respect and confidence. They seek target they perceive to be weaker than themselves to boost their sense of self-worth.

With its strong emphasis on teaching discipline and respect, martial arts instructions can help bullies see the error of their ways.

The atmosphere in our school teaches kids that there can be no self-respect without respect for others. We don’t tolerate bullying and we teach kids that the way they treat others reflects on them both here – and at school.



The lessons your child learns now about physical fitness may very well follow them into adulthood.

Martial arts instruction teaches kids about their bodies. They learn to push themselves and pursue fitness goals.

Studying martial arts sets kids up for good health and a healthy body image that they’ll keep throughout their lives.



Martial arts Instruction provides two essential elements for weight loss: cardiovascular activity and core and muscle toning.

We work with kids who need to lose weight by providing them with achievable goals.

Our focus on self-discipline helps kids understand that what they do affects their bodies, and helps them to lose weight and get in shape.



Childhood education lays the groundwork for your child’s success later in life. Without learning, their goals and aspirations may slip away.

If your child is having difficulties in school, then studying martial arts may help them. By providing kids with a natural outlet for their energy – and helping them achieve clarity in our school – martial arts leads the way to better grades.



It’s common for a kid who performs poorly in class to start thinking that they’re not capable of doing better. Disappointments can dampen enthusiasm for learning.

In our martial arts school, kids learn how to take hits – and they carry the ability to do so in the classroom, where they can cope with setbacks and learn that hard work can help them more forward.

The persistence and discipline that kids learn in martial arts classes is something that applies directly to their education.



Kids who have motor difficulties learn coordination and build core strength at a level that suits their individual needs and capabilities.

Martial arts help kids get familiar with their bodies and their mental and physical capabilities in a safe and encouraging environment.

In our school, everyone is equal, and that helps kids with special needs feel that they belong to a welcoming and friendly community.



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.



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.

Through repetition and memorization, kids learn that they need to focus to excel in our martial arts school. They learn the mental discipline to avoid distractions and pursue their goals.

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


Basic SKILLZ teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun,
social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn
about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing
coordination and learning key martial arts moves.

    Classes have great different times to choose from, you pick the time and day you could go for your child's age class. They are very patient and put extra time for those who need that little push to make it better. I like the balance between being strict but not scary. The games they do in classes after the lessons are fun but ALWAYS meaningful to the lessons learned.

    My daughter loves this class. I was very happy to see other little girls there and enjoying themselves too. I have heard of other places specifically asking why put a girl in martial arts, here they accepted her with was no questions. They treat everyone like they have known us for years and I've only been here for about a month. They are respectful to the children and have fun in their teachings. I hope it never changes.
