Accepting Responsibility

Children must be taught how to not blame, but accept responsibility for their actions and feelings in any situation to lead a more productive life.

School Readiness

Most parents and children are not even thinking about the back to school countdown. But, teachers, administrators, and students will once again be filling the halls and back to classes in just a few weeks. To prepare for this, it’s crucial that parents implement strategies now to give their children a jump start before heading back to school.

SKILLZ Based Training vs Technique-Based Training

Most martial arts forms are rooted in tradition and have been taught the same way for years. And while tradition is vital to keeping the art preserved, the way it is taught in today’s modern world isn’t as effective. As times change and as we become more educated, we must adjust to meet the needs of the people we serve. This is especially true when teaching children.
