Self Defense

Our main goal in our Martial Arts School, is teach Self defense and life principles though training in The Art of Combat Sports. One of the skills that students acquire is how to defend and protect themselves and loved ones, if need be.

One of the focuses for our Kids Leadership Workshop is to teach street application, self defense tactics of how to restrain an aggressor, and how to escape, get out of bad positions and situations.  We will go over moves, techniques, and positions that are common in a self defense situation.

Anti Bullying

Another topic we will cover, is the Bully topic. We are proud to have Dr. Eric Beam speak and present information to students, parents, and families about how to deal with Bullies and situations from a variety of perspectives.

The hopes of our Kids Leadership Workshop is to educate, enlighten and help to address areas of concern.

Dr. Beam will go over different levels of Bullying, and things to look for and identify, to help remedy problematic situations. Information will be handed out to parents to help educate and help discuss situations with their kids, . For the boys and girls we will go through some skits and scenarios to help them recognize and identify dangerous, and not so dangerous situations.

Goal Setting for kids

We are big into setting goals and going after what we want.  We teach kids to learn to identify what they want, create a plan, and work on achieving it.

Helping Kids to achieve more, empowering Children to do better

Goal Setting is a science that takes many years to get good at.

At the Kids Leadership Workshop, we go over the basics and provide a framework for children to start building the skills to be effective Goal Setters.

We are here to build Champions.  We want every child to know it’s possible to make their dreams a reality.  Our Martial Arts Academy instills confidence, discipline and focus. By helping to create Goal Setting skills, kids will have the desire to work hard to go after what they want.

We are here to help take kids to the next level and are excited to be part of their journey as Martial Artists and outstanding citizens.
