A Few Words

From Joe Dumais

I’m Joe Dumais, Owner / Head Instructor here at Martial Art Fitness Academy.

As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.

But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.

Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.

It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.

With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.

That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.

And of course it’s a ton of FUN!

That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.

So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.

Thanks!

Does Your Child Have

Any of these challenges?

They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.

They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.

They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.

The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.

Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?

But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.

your child will grow with every class!

Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.

Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.

Lifelong Character and Success Traits

Your kids’ everyday friends aren’t the main concern anymore when it comes to character development. Now you have to worry about all the negative and harmful influences that the internet can introduce into your children’s lives.

The true benefit or our classes are the character and success traits that are developed through martial arts training.

Through learning the skills and techniques of martial arts, to the guidance and inspiration of our instructors and the positive social interaction with their fellow classmates, your kids will develop a whole list of skills.

Fitness Disguised

Face it. Between the foods we eat and the constant sitting and staring into screens and devices, many kids aren’t getting enough regular exercise.

Our martial arts classes for kids are full exercise routines disguised as a boatload of fun! That’s because they are jam packed with activities, games and drills that are all designed to disguise the repetition of training.

Of course it’s important for your kids to exercise and wear themselves out – they stay healthy, sleep well, and develop their minds and bodies. But just as important, our classes will help develop at a young age the physical habits they need to grow into healthy adults.

Self-Defense From Predators and Bullies

We never want our kids to have to use these skills in modern life, but every good parent still wants their kids to be safe.

That’s why our martial arts training is very serious about teaching your kids the skills needed for self-protection in any circumstance, from the neighborhood bully to a stranger on the street (and so much more).

But knowing how to defend oneself is only half the battle. Our classes teach your child the respect and self-discipline needed to diffuse a situation without violence whenever possible – as well as the knowledge to know when force is the only way to safety.

Tons of F-U-N !!

We never forget… kids are kids and they deserve to have some fun!

We can’t guarantee that their normal school teachers are making learning an enjoyable experience, but we DO guarantee that your kid will have a blast in our martial arts classes.

It really is a challenge to design a class that keeps children focused on learning, respect, and discipline while still having fun… but our classes are created just for that. They are so full of ideas, activities, and games that your kids will never get bored or stagnate.

It’s also a fantastic and healthy environment for them (and you) to make friends with other like-minded students. It really is a place where laughter, cheer and happiness abound.

Respect is a cornerstone of martial arts instruction

Kids who don’t respect themselves and others often have difficulties in school and in life. Martial arts teaches the importance of respect every day.

We teach students to respect their instructors and fellow students. They can’t succeed without respecting everyone in the studio.

Over time, the instinct to respect others becomes deeply ingrained – and your child will carry it with them forever.

Learning discipline creates opportunities

Nobody can succeed in life without the discipline to keep going even when things are difficult.

Our students learn discipline and persistence. Martial arts training requires true diligence and that’s not possible without discipline.

Students are held to the highest standard of behavior at all times – and the discipline they learn here will help them everywhere else.

Bullying hurts kids psychologically

Children who are bullied often suffer from low self-esteem, fear, and poor school performance. Their lives revolve around the actions of bullies.

Bullies focus on kids who seem fearful or vulnerable, but martial arts teaches kids to be confident and self-assured.

Martial arts build mental, emotional, and physical strength – and by teaching self-respect, it helps children believe in themselves, which makes them poor targets for bullies.

Help your child channel their energy into positivity

Children bully other children out of a lack of self-respect and confidence. They seek target they perceive to be weaker than themselves to boost their sense of self-worth.

With its strong emphasis on teaching discipline and respect, martial arts instructions can help bullies see the error of their ways.

The atmosphere in our school teaches kids that there can be no self-respect without respect for others. We don’t tolerate bullying and we teach kids that the way they treat others reflects on them both here – and at school.

Childhood attitudes toward fitness take root early

The lessons your child learns now about physical fitness may very well follow them into adulthood.

Martial arts instruction teaches kids about their bodies. They learn to push themselves and pursue fitness goals.

Studying martial arts sets kids up for good health and a healthy body image that they’ll keep throughout their lives.

Obesity leads to health problems and low self-esteem

Martial arts Instruction provides two essential elements for weight loss: cardiovascular activity and core and muscle toning.

We work with kids who need to lose weight by providing them with achievable goals.

Our focus on self-discipline helps kids understand that what they do affects their bodies, and helps them to lose weight and get in shape.

Nothing is more important than education

Childhood education lays the groundwork for your child’s success later in life. Without learning, their goals and aspirations may slip away.

If your child is having difficulties in school, then studying martial arts may help them. By providing kids with a natural outlet for their energy – and helping them achieve clarity in our school – martial arts leads the way to better grades.

Martial arts helps kids overcome disappointment

It’s common for a kid who performs poorly in class to start thinking that they’re not capable of doing better. Disappointments can dampen enthusiasm for learning.

In our martial arts school, kids learn how to take hits – and they carry the ability to do so in the classroom, where they can cope with setbacks and learn that hard work can help them more forward.

The persistence and discipline that kids learn in martial arts classes is something that applies directly to their education.

Martial arts provides kids with special needs with structure

When a child has special needs, they struggle with certain things that other kids might find easy. In our martial arts school, they learn in a structured environment that emphasizes self-respect.

All children need exercise but it can sometimes be hard for kids with special needs to keep up on the playing field.

Martial arts instruction focuses on competing with yourself – something that allows kids with special needs to excel on their own terms.

Your child can achieve their dreams

Kids who have motor difficulties learn coordination and build core strength at a level that suits their individual needs and capabilities.

Martial arts help kids get familiar with their bodies and their mental and physical capabilities in a safe and encouraging environment.

In our school, everyone is equal, and that helps kids with special needs feel that they belong to a welcoming and friendly community.

Kids don’t get labeled in martial arts

One of the most damaging things that can happen to kids in school is that they get labeled: the fat kid, the clumsy kid, and so on. In our school, they’re all just martial arts kids!

Kids learn to trust themselves and their abilities. As a result, their confidence soars.

Physical self-confidence leads to intellectual and emotional self-esteem, and martial arts can help kids carry themselves with a deep-seated sense of confidence and authority.

students learn to focus on what’s important

Martial arts training puts a strong emphasis on the importance of focus, and that carries over to home and the classroom, as well as the playground and beyond.

Through repetition and memorization, kids learn that they need to focus to excel in our martial arts school. They learn the mental discipline to avoid distractions and pursue their goals.

Today’s kids often have difficulty with paying attention, but martial arts training helps keep their eyes on the prize.

We love MAFA. The staff is awesome. They are wonderful people and great with the kids. They don't just hand out the belts. The kids have to earn them but they make it fun. Our kids thoroughly enjoy going to Martial arts. They never want to miss.

Amber Rau

I was very skeptical about martial arts but I enrolled my little girl because she was being bullied in school. The instructors evaluated her and identified her strengths and weaknesses. She has grown as a person and a responsible individual due to the discipline of martial arts! I am so thankful for the kind and caring instructors at MAFA!!!!!

Robert Delgado

My son Luke has been at MAFA for 6 years.. From being a Little Dragon at 5 years old to now a black belt and also taking their Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class. The instructors are all amazing role models and push the kids beyond their limits to help them grow both physically & mentally. Very friendly and welcoming school that I wouldn't trade for anything.
