A FEW WORDS
From Michael Rowe
I’m Michael Rowe, President / Grandmaster here at Alpha Omega 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.
DOES YOUR YOUNG CHILD
STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
THE DIFFICULTIES OF RAISING CHILDREN ARE NEAR ENDLESS
LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
RESPECT IS A CORNERSTONE OF MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTION
Kids who don’t respect themselves and others often have difficulties in school and in life. Martial arts teaches the importance of respect every day.
We teach students to respect their instructors and fellow students. They can’t succeed without respecting everyone in the studio.
Over time, the instinct to respect others becomes deeply ingrained – and your child will carry it with them forever.
LEARNING DISCIPLINE CREATES OPPORTUNITIES
Nobody can succeed in life without the discipline to keep going even when things are difficult.
Our students learn discipline and persistence. Martial arts training requires true diligence and that’s not possible without discipline.
Students are held to the highest standard of behavior at all times – and the discipline they learn here will help them everywhere else.
MARTIAL ARTS PROVIDES KIDS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS WITH STRUCTURE
When a child has special needs, they struggle with certain things that other kids might find easy. In our martial arts school, they learn in a structured environment that emphasizes self-respect.
All children need exercise but it can sometimes be hard for kids with special needs to keep up on the playing field.
Martial arts instruction focuses on competing with yourself – something that allows kids with special needs to excel on their own terms.
YOUR CHILD CAN ACHIEVE THEIR DREAMS
Kids who have motor difficulties learn coordination and build core strength at a level that suits their individual needs and capabilities.
Martial arts help kids get familiar with their bodies and their mental and physical capabilities in a safe and encouraging environment.
In our school, everyone is equal, and that helps kids with special needs feel that they belong to a welcoming and friendly community.
My child is out of control. Can martial arts help?
Yes. Self-control is essential to the study of martial arts, and our students learn that they must be the masters of their actions and emotions.
How can learning about discipline help my child at school?
The discipline kids learn in our martial arts school helps them in other areas of life. Over time, behaving in a disciplined way becomes second nature.
How can martial arts help my child learn self-discipline?
The study of martial arts requires kids to discipline themselves. They must control their behavior in and out of our school, work to memorize moves, and practice to advance in their studies.
How can studying martial arts teach my child to be respectful of himself and others?
In our martial arts school, respect is a core tenet of what we teach. All students are taught to respect their instructor, other students, and themselves as part of their studies.
