TEACHING RESPECT, DISCIPLINE, RESPONSIBILITY & CAMARADERIE

Tips for competitive parents 

We have partnered up with The Jeannie Bornemann Foundation Inc.

This organization assist children to manage their adhd, add, ptsd etc. through martial arts sports. The program assist with tuition payments with the following documents required:

 

  • Letter of reference from an individual that has known the child more than a year and knows of his/hers condition.

  • A statement from your personal physician describing the nature of diagnosis.

  • Provide a letter, in your own words of why you chose this sport to help with your childs diagnosis. Ages 6 and up must write their own letter.

We believe that the practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is seen as a means to individual development and personal growth. Strength, self-awareness, respect, discipline and responsibility are common core values taught within our kid’s program.

FREQUENTLY asked QUESTIONS

Will my child get hurt?

We've had children come to our program for years without obtaining a single injury. This is actually the case for most children. Have children been injured in our martial arts classes? Yes, some have. But the injuries were no different than those sustained by kids who play baseball or other sports. Our instructors pay close attention to detail when it comes to safety. From ensuring we have padded floors to step-by-step instruction - we do everything in our power to ensure your child's safety. We cannot guarantee that no injuries will occur, but we can tell you that almost no children receive injuries in our programs. That is because we take safety very seriously.

Will my child like it or have a hard time learning?

Often children who don’t find success in team sports come to martial arts, and they love it. That's because with martial arts, the child will go at his or her own pace. You see, team sports actually harm the self-esteem of children who aren't very athletic. When they don't perform well, the other kids can be pretty nasty. And this can leave some serious scars on their self-esteem. But with martial arts, everyone goes at their own pace. Some kids learn quicker than others - but the children who advance quickly are not valued more than the kids who advance slowly. Everyone is encouraged regardless of his or her athletic level.

Will martial arts make my kid violent?

Absolutely not! All martial arts are based on traditional moral codes centered on honor, discipline, respect and loyalty where the warrior is on a quest to perfect his or her own character. Classes are strict, and children have to follow directions and show respect to the instructors. Often, kids who are violent before joining our classes have changed and become non-violent individuals. So, in short, martial arts will not make your child violent!
