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!

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts

April 2nd is Family Day, and it’s the ideal time to talk about how to find family activities. If you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and vice versa.

There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone
People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television.
The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer
When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even though you and your kids will be in separate classes, we think martial arts still qualifies as a group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals.

In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships
The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control, courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life.

Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Martial Arts is Fun
Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and martial arts classes are! A good martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feel-good hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling.

Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their fist. You won’t have to worry about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!

Studying martial arts as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
