One big thing that kids today are lacking is self confidence and we strongly believe that physical training and building skills necessary to protect oneself (outside of sports) can have a huge impact on a kid’s confidence. Martial Arts play a big role in developing youth all around the world and the reason is simple. You cannot succeed in martial arts without experiencing loss, working with other coaches and students to learn how to win; but most importantly, learn to adhere to a set of principles designed to teach children the process of learning. Without respect, discipline, courage and teamwork learning to be skillful at anything will be difficult.
In any endeavor, it’s important to have a coach or Sensei to guide you, a team to support you and help to develop your practice as well as theirs, but most importantly bringing their best effort and focus to each training or class. Although our classes teach Jiu-Jitsu, our coaches focus on developing our students’ sense of responsibility to their community and finding their purpose to serve.
