Our children’s classes incorporate both our Kickboxing, Judo, and Jujitsu styles, training them in both “stand-up” and ground fighting. The format for these classes is extremely rewarding to the children in several ways.
- Foremost, the children have fun in class. Among other skills, they are taught to and encouraged to grapple in class. How many times have you had to caution your child about wrestling at home for fear they would hurt themselves or damage your home or furniture?
- Children learn discipline and other qualities that make martial arts training a plus. Studies show that children training in the martial arts have improved behavior, better grades in school, increased self esteem, and other benefits, also.
The parent of a new student once approached Sensei (Dr.) Corbett. He, to Sensei’s surprise, excitedly told him that his child’s behavior has changed for the positive. The child had become focused on the positive aspects of the martial arts and had become a much better student in school.
Our young students progress through the belt ranks in this manner: Kickboxing and Jujitsu; first in Kickboxing, then in Jujitsu. For example, a child will first earn a Yellow Belt in Kickboxing and then a Yellow Belt with a stripe (indicating mastery of that level in both styles).
You’ve probably been thinking about having your child train in the Martial Arts for a long time. Bring your child in for a free week of training, with absolutely no obligation.
