I found that Karate America is physically and mentally safe to my kids. My kids learn much of respect and great attitude from just being there watching and listening.

We had an amazing experience from the moment we walked in the door. Every single person was polite, respectful and knowledgeable. We initially wanted to see if our 3 year old son was ready to begin karate (not yet, but hopefully this winter!) and instead my husband and I ended up taking a class. I fell in love with the entire experience right away and am very excited to see how Karate America Brookfield will help me grow in my skills, my relationships and my respect for myself and others. I would suggest Mr. Mealy and the entire Karate America Brookfield team to anyone who is ready to take this wonderful step in their life too!

Karate America is an excellent karate school. My 8 year old has been taking classes for about 4 years. Over the years, his flexibility, focus, and confidence has improved greatly. He recently started taking a leadership class at Karate America. His ability to reach out to new friends and help those in need has increased exponentially. I witnessed his leadership skills in action during our most recent vacation. He approached several kids at different times while we were at the beach to see if they wanted to play or make sand castles together. And when we returned home from vacation, we had a new neighbor, including a 6 year old boy. My son went over and introduced himself and asked the boy if he wanted to ride bikes. I was amazed! I thank Karate America for helping teach my son these important life skills!

I’ve been a Karate America parent for over 3 years. I’ve proudly watched my oldest son grow from a Little Ninja to a Young Achiever, and he recently advanced to Intermediate class. This was a big step forward, and I was concerned with the many changes that awaited my son. For one, I recognized that the curriculum would be much more rigorous, including weekly sparring. In addition, he would be moving on to new instructors. However, all of my fears melted away as I watched his first class. The many years of practice at Karate America had prepared my son beautifully! He was ready for this next step, and his confidence radiated through, even as he stepped onto the floor, weighed down in new sparring gear, facing a new level with new instructors and new classmates. Secondly, the instructors were phenomenal! Mr. Kozlowski held the bar high while breaking down the steps of kicks and forms into manageable pieces. Mr. Stravropoulos consistently encouraged my son while skillfully explaining and demonstrating ways that he could improve his technique. The feedback was specific, easily understood, and very motivating. After my son’s first sparring class, he walked off the floor and exclaimed, “Best karate class ever!” I couldn’t be happier with Karate America! Thank you to the many fabulous instructors! You are all making a tremendous difference in children’s lives! I can’t wait to see what lies ahead on the path to black belt!

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts, students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies

Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear. However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
