My 4yr old instantly loved this place and connected well with Mr. Prieto. Could already see more self confidence and discipline within our 3day trial! We're going on 2 months and he is ecstatic to continue going and growing to reach black belt in the future!

You can not ask for a nicer person. Master Prieto has a gift with kids few others have. I have seen the difference that he makes in myself and in his students. He has taught me so much about how to become a better instructor/Martial Artist. If I'm ever in the area I know I'm always welcome there.

Great place to learn martial arts. We love Mr Prieto, strict yet with a great sense of humor and patience. Mr Austin is awesome too.

I started Karate here when I was 7 as just a means of exercise, but it developed into a hobby and a love of mine. Mr. Prieto and Mr. Austin are extremely knowledgeable instructors and have a great sense of humor. They inspired me to push myself and I became a second degree black belt. Learning karate at a young age has taught me a lot about respect and self confidence that assisted me through my own personal growth. I’m so glad that I was able to grow up and build many friendships through this program.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

We brought our child to this club when he was five years old. I knew our child required guidance with respect to getting strong - physically and mentally. Mr. Prieto and his associates trained him and over the last eight plus years we could see our child flourishing in confidence, manners and strength. Putting our son in this club is one of the best decisions we have made that helps him push boundaries. Confucius once said it does not matter how fast you move as long as you do not stop. Arts like this require long term dedication and as long as this is understood, magic happens.

My son has been here for almost 5 years. Mr. Prieto and Mr Austin are the best instructors you can get. We have been very happy here.
The term “karate family” gets used her a lot. That is really what it becomes. Everyone becomes close and enjoy watching the success of each student in the school.

Craig Mallia

I started Karate at the age of 18 in college in Moo Duk Kwan Tang So Do, One of the bases of Chuck
Norris’s System. I wanted my kid, Max to have a good off campus P.E. Program. This is that, plus WAY more! Then our whole family became involved. Now we practice a lot of different arts together including; Krav Maga And Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which is AWESOME! Mr. Prieto and Austin are the BEST!

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
