Does Your Teenager Need Help Becoming Their Best Selves?
Instead of giving into the moodiness and attitude, take them to our martial arts school instead!
Teenagers are smart and capable – but they can also be their own worst enemies. Between peer pressure, their innate urge to rebel against their parents, and their surging hormones, they can be impossible to be around. But all they need is an outlet for their frustrations – and an opportunity to learn how to be their best.
DOES YOUR TEEN NEED HELP IN ONE OF THESE AREAS?
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE & PATIENCE
LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
RESPECT THEMSELVES & OTHERS
Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to disrespect all authority figures.
In our martial arts school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.
Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.
DISCIPLINE TRANSLATES TO SCHOOL, HOME, & BEYOND
Teenagers tend to take the easy way out when presented with challenges at home and at school.
Martial arts classes teach teenagers to discipline themselves in the pursuit of desired goals.
As they achieve their goals, they learn to appreciate the role that discipline played in getting them there.
LEARN HOW TO MAKE SMART DECISIONS
It’s very common for teenagers to make snap decisions based on their emotions, without considering the possible consequences of such hastily-made choices.
In our martial arts classes, teens learn that their first instincts aren’t always their best instincts. We teach them how to evaluate situations and make wise decisions instead of fast ones.
Over time, the decision-making process becomes ingrained and helps them in other areas of life, too.
JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS
Whether they’re in a martial arts class or in a competition, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.
Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.
They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make judgments.
HELPS BULLIED TEENS FEEL STRONG AND PROUD
Bullying is a huge problem in high schools around the country, and if your child is being bullied, you know that something needs to change.
Studying martial arts helps teens respect themselves, make the most of their natural talents and capabilities, and carry themselves with strength.
Ultimately, kids who feel good about themselves are less likely to be bullied than kids who don’t.
AGGRESSIVE TEENS LEARN HOW TO CONTROL THEMSELVES
Teen who bully their peers often do so because they lack self-esteem and they don’t know what to do with the fear, anger, and aggression.
Martial arts instruction helps teens corral their aggression and channel it into something positive. It teaches them that violence and unkindness are not the answer to their problems.
In our martial arts school, all students must respect their instructors and one another. As aggressive teens learn to respect themselves and others, they no longer feel the need to bully.
GET YOUR KIDS OFF THE COUCH AND INTO MARTIAL ARTS
It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.
The electronics epidemic might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.
Martial arts classes provide teens with challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.
EXCESS POUNDS MELT AWAY
Obesity among children and teens has become an epidemic, and many teenagers struggle to lose weight and get in shape.
Martial arts workouts can help them do it. They combine intense cardiovascular exercise with muscle toning to help teens drop pounds and get in shape.
Our instructors stress the importance of good habits, including a healthy diet and exercise, to give teens the tools they need to lose weight and keep it off.
TEENS DESERVE TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT THEMSELVES
It’s not uncommon for teenagers to feel inadequate, sad, and lonely. They’re hard on themselves and may struggle with self-esteem issues.
In our martial arts classes, they learn that they have skills and capabilities that make them strong and resourceful – and they learn how to make the most of their bodies and minds.
Over time, getting control of their bodies and minds helps build self-esteem and confidence.
MANAGING STRESS HELPS TEENS SUCCEED
As adults, we sometimes dismiss the idea that kids experience stress – but the truth is that teenagers deal with stress every day.
Peer pressure, grades, and college applications, combined with hormones and interpersonal issues, can add up to a huge stress load for modern teenagers.
Martial arts classes give kids a positive and healthy outlet for the stress, helping them to keep anxiety under control.
MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES TEACH TEENS NOT TO GIVE UP
Teenagers often take the easy way out of problems when they can – even if they know that the alternative might be better.
In our martial arts school, we emphasize the importance of learning proper form and staying in control, neither of which is possible without persistence and discipline.
The regular pursuit of small goals helps teens learn the value of persistence both in and out of our school.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.
The study of martial arts requires them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.
Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.

LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…
Even when you do find time to hit the gym, regardless of having a schedule that’s full of work, family time, and other obligations, you might be bored by your same old workout. There’s nothing exciting about another go-round on the treadmill or elliptical – and you might need some encouragement to stick to a schedule and achieve your fitness goals.
