I work here and I have to say that myself and the staff have a real passion for our craft and teaching out students. To us each student is a viable individual which we personally get involved to ensure their growth as a student but also with their character. I love my students and staff. Our school has so much to offer in the way of diversity, one on one attention and methodical teaching so that our students can be the best with the skills we give them.

My 5 year old son attended a birthday party here. The activities were very organized and lots of fun! My son's favorite part was playing the ball game (not sure of the name) and kicking the board in two! We loved it so much we signed up for spring break camp after the party!

Love this place! My kids just attended their free trial class and the staff was extremely passionate and helpful. They took the time to teach each child individually. They took my kids to the side and gave them one on one and made them feel extremely welcomed on their first day!.. prices are very affordable. I'm so excited to be a Karate Mom for my kiddos!

The staff cares so much. They give our children the opportunity to become a stronger person. There is nothing not to love. My daughter has been taking classes for almost a year, and i can't wait every week. Neither can she.

This is a wonderful place where my son spends his summer and breaks! My son comes home from camp always eager to share what he learned, sports he played, and field trips he went! The value is definitely there. The administration and staff are full of energy and also use tough love when necessary-I admire that!

4 Ways to Quickly Boost Your Child’s Confidence

1. Set Up Responsibilities at Home

Provide your child with chores around the home. If your child has an interest in cooking, chores such as setting the table or cooking together can be helpful and rewarding. Responsibilities around the home can give your kids a sense of productivity, usefulness, success, and confidence.

2. Give Genuine Compliments and Encouragement

Compliments and praise should not be over used, but instead, at times when it matters. Over praising or over complimenting your child when they are not even trying can lower the bar and create unrealistic standards. When giving genuine compliments, make it specific and avoid making false statements. If your child is not a great pianist, focus on aspects that you value such as their perseverance or work ethic instead.

3. Allow Your Child to Work Through Challenges

Your child at one point or another will come across a rough patch where you will feel the urge to help solve their problems or remove challenges. However, you may be hurting their opportunities to problem-solve and cope with issues when you become a “ helicopter or lawnmower parent” — A parent ready to rescue or mow down any challenges for their child. Allowing your kid to make decisions, using their best judgment to work through those healthy challenges, will help build self-confidence in the future.

4. Enroll Your Child in Martial Arts

Martial Arts is a great outlet to help your child build their confidence. Classes are structured to help children train in martial arts AND boost children’s self-confidence, self-esteem, discipline, and much much more through team building exercises, making new friends,obstacle courses, drills and challenges.
