We specilize in teaching children starting at 2 years old. Our intention is to make children feel good about themselves, and be in physical and mental control. Our teaching methods are sensitively tailored to meet the needs of individual learning differences. All children are taught at thier own pace and are never pressured to perform beyond their capabilities.
It is one of the most beautiful things in the world to watch parents and children training side by side. Parents glow at their children's accomplishments...like the execution of a good side kick, or the breaking of their first board. The greater satisfaction, however, comes from the bond of love, friendship, understanding, and repect that develops between parent and child. Both parents and children share in each others hardships and accomplishments. Parents feel younger, healthier, and greatly fulfilled, and their children become more mature, confident and well behaved. Families in the Martial Arts are very fortunate indeed!
