A FEW WORDS
FROM Michael Tullier
I’m Michael Tullier here at American Family Martial Arts.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
STRUGGLE WITH ANY OF THESE CHALLENGES?
They are shy and may have difficulty approaching other kids – or sharing in a play situation.
They don’t pay attention to their surroundings and may end up being unintentionally destructive as a result.
They lack control and can’t stay in one place long enough to eat a meal or watch a movie.
PARENTING CAN FEEL LIKE RUNNING A MARATHON
It’s exhausting, and it’s not uncommon for parents to feel frustrated as they try to get their young children to behave, sit still, and be aware of what’s going on around them. Getting them to participate in any group activity can be difficult at best, particularly when the activity doesn’t take their natural inclinations and developmental needs.
The key to helping kids at this age gain control is to teach them basic skills while entertaining them. With calm and steady guidance, they can learn to understand basic martial arts skills – and acceptable martial arts school behavior – and have fun, too!
RESULTS AND GROWTH WITH EVERY CLASS!
Early SKILLZ gives young children the basic skills and discipline they need to succeed. While they learn simple martial arts moves such as kicking, punching, blocking, crawling, and jumping, they also grasp valuable lessons about social conduct. Over time, Early SKILLZ students learn how to control their movements, follow directions, and interact with students and teachers.
MARTIAL ARTS BUILDS COORDINATION AND CONTROL
Students learn to be aware of themselves, others, and their surroundings, and to control their movements accordingly.
By learning basic martial arts moves, they build muscle coordination and become increasingly aware of spatial awareness.
FOCUS AND ATTENTION SKILLS
Kids learn how to pay attention to verbal commands when they are given, and to avoid tuning out when something seems complicated.
By learning how to focus and ignore distractions, kids learn how to follow verbal instructions – and to remember them without needing reminders.
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING ENCOURAGES PERSEVERANCE
Kids learn how to manage anxiety and negative feelings, and not to give up when they are frustrated or upset.
Early SKILLZ includes training to help kids learn the value of persistence as they pursue achievable goals in a supportive setting.
RESPECT IS THE CORNERSTONE OF MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING
Early SKILLZ classes underscore the importance of self-respect and respect for others in social and classroom settings.
In our martial arts school, kids learn that all classmates are to be treated with respect, and be supportive and encouraging as their classmates pursue their goals.
My son had gained so much self confidence after attending only 4 weeks of classes. His level of respect and discipline continues to increase as his training does. The instructors and staff are great with the kids and go above and beyond to make sure they know your child’s needs.
Class was great because we tried new things. My favorite thing yesterday was playing the game and earning my star on my stripe.
My son got confidence, overcome shy and is developing leadership qualities. He completed one year at American Family Martial Arts. Now he is in green belt. He loves karate and it's his passion. I recommend other parents also to join their kids to AFMA.
Mon son has gone got almost a year and he loves it. The instructors are greatand really know how to handle the kids. I definitely recommend it for beginners up!
My two granddaughters have been going to AFMA for about three months now. One is an introvert, the other is an extrovert. In the short time they have been attending my sweet shy girl has become more confident in herself and has made friendships. My sociable girl has become more disciplined. Above all they love going, learning and have a great time. Thanks to the entire staff for your dedication and passion to teach my girls.
