Every parent wants the best for their child, but how do you prepare them for all the challenges that they face in today’s world? How do you teach them the motivation, discipline, and proper attitude necessary for success? It’s not an easy task because this type of education is often not found in our schools, sports or community organizations, and that’s really a shame. In fact, it’s a crime because teaching children basic traits — like goal setting, motivation, and self esteem — at a young age can have a massive impact on what that child accomplishes in later life. Our instructors are not only great martial artists, they are great parents! Our instructors are family oriented and serve their community at large. They are wonderful role models for your child to follow.
Are classes safe?
Kuk Sool is a highly supervised activity. The children are never asked to perform any movement that would put them in danger of injury. Our children’s curriculum has been specifically designed to accommodate ages 3 and up. This curriculum has been modified so children of those ages can successfully learn to perform all the moves necessary to excel. Kuk Sool will teach your child how to spot and avoid danger, what to do in an emergency, and if necessary how to protect themselves from danger. This invaluable skill will not only increase their confidence in themselves, but may even save their lives.
Will my child have fun?
Kuk Sool is good, clean fun and a great way to give kids a head start on life. It has been our understanding that parents want the lasting benefits of confidence, respect, self-esteem and self-discipline that Kuk Sool offers, however, we don’t want to struggle with the children when it’s time to get ready for class. Our instructors have becomeHead over heels leaders in the field of motivating children. Motivation, excitement and fun are the essential tools we use to increase the learning and performance of our kids. We also offer various school events that teach children how to get along better with others, thus creating a spirit of teamwork and a sense of belonging. Our carefully structured environment will help your child develop physically, mentally and socially. Because your children will be surrounded by others with similar goals and aspirations, they will develop positive friendships and healthy peer groups.
Will my child learn to be abusive?
Absolutely not! Kuk Sool is self-defense, not self-offense. Every child is taught our “student creed,” which is a necessary part of learning the philosophy of our school. Student creed verse number three states “I will use common sense before self-defense and never be abusive or offensive.” Our creed is a commitment students learn in order to maintain the courtesy and integrity of our art.
What is the focus of the program?
Our primary focus is to teach children “life skills.” Because a structure of respect, courtesy and honesty is built into Kuk Sool, children develop the ability to listen, learn and achieve within a highly regulated environment. Most sports don’t build leadership traits. If you have the necessary skills to perform, you’re in the game. If not, you’re on the bench. Kuk Sool is different. The program is designed to develop such traits as confidence, self-discipline, better listening skills, honesty, integrity and much, much more. The classes combine the fun and excitement of Martial Arts training with weekly mental and philosophical lessons designed to strengthen our children mentally and physically. Perhaps the scariest problem for many parents today is the thought that their child might get involved with drugs. The number of “good kids” who end up taking drugs at a younger and younger age is staggering. At Martial Art Fitness Academy, our programs are designed to promote self confidence and self esteem to give your child the courage to say NO to unhealthy choices despite peer pressure. Recent studies have shown that programs which focus on personal achievement, such as Martial Arts, are vastly more effective in fighting this problem than any other activity.
Over the years, hundreds of children have benefited from these unique programs:
- Overweight kids who lost a few pounds through self-discipline and exercise and gained massive amounts of self esteem and confidence.
- Smart kids, bored with school, who learned to set goals and reach higher.
- Wild kids who learned how to focus and channel their energy in a more positive direction.
- Shy kids who were brought out of their shell
All these children and the hundreds of others who have experienced our program have gained a foundation in the basic tools of success that will last them a lifetime. Much as learning to ride a bike or learning to swim, once the skills of success and achievement are introduced to your children they never go away. The payoff just keeps on going for the rest of their lives. Lives filled with proud moments of achievement backed by good health and happiness. Where do children learn such wonderful tools? At Martial Art Fitness Academy!!
But my child already participates in a dozen different activities! How does Kuk Sool fit into his busy schedule?
We understand kids have other interests too: Cub Scouts, Baseball, Piano Lessons, you name it. And that’s okay! Kuk Sool never tries to compete with these activities. In fact, Kuk Sool training actually enhances a child’s performance in other sports or activities by improving concentration, accuracy, endurance, motor skills and confidence.
We offer numerous classes at different times after school five days a week, so you’re sure to find a class time that will fit into your busy schedule.
How young can children start Kuk Sool?
Children as young as 3 can get started in martial arts. Our special Little Dragons classes cater to children between the ages of 3 and 8. For children between the ages of 8 and 13, our children’s program offers the right balance of energy, discipline and fun!
P.S. — It’s not just for Kids!
