The discipline that is taught in the dojo in regard to uniforms, customs and techniques often translates into other areas of life, including school and household chores.
Kids Martial Arts & Respect
Kids martial arts are all about respect. Punching, kicking, throwing and locking are all secondary to the respect that is shown from the moment you walk into our dojo. Children learn to bow to the teachers who came before them, and to their current instructors. They also learn to treat other students as they wish to be treated. Our quality kids martial arts instructors press upon the respect issue regularly and instruct students to practice respect for self, parents, teachers and peers at every opportunity.

Working through a martial art and the belt ranking system gives a child measurable goals to follow that are realistic to attain but not necessarily easy to attain.
