read moreWe recognize how much influence that martial arts instructors can have, so we are careful in selecting our instructors. For example, we always hire from within our student body, and consequently, our employment interview process is 3 or 4 years in the making. We do our best to hire only those individuals that personally live up to a high moral code, a code of integrity, courtesy, patience, perseverance, and compassion. And of course, they have to be outstanding martial artists. Mrs. Christman started her training in 1998 at the encouragement of her husband and 3 children, who were all taking classes.
Martial Arts Classes For Kids
read moreUnlike a lot of other activities, in martial arts, no one sits on the bench. Everyone is encouraged to become better and improve themselves. Children who learn martial arts develop the confidence to know that, if they are ever bullied, they have the skills they need to defend themselves. However, the real skill we teach is diffusing situations with words and confidence before they ever escalate to a physical level. Our classes are designed to bring out the best in your child at their current level of development.
