We have had an amazing experience here! My son is learning and improving at his own pace, and is given frequent leadership opportunities. I love how the constant rotations allows for everyone to have the chance to hone leadership skills! The instructors are professional, concerned, and reinforce the discipline and respect we teach at home. I’m also impressed at how the staff knows each student’s name! They make a serious effort to personalize each student’s experience as best they can. I highly recommend this dojo.

My 9 year old son has had a lot of issues with focus and following through directions( he has been diagnosed with adhd). We have also moved a lot which has been hard for him. And finding an outlet for him has been very important . Starting karate at CMA has helped him immensely. His confidence has grown so much and has helped with his ability to focus. It has really helped him physically and mentally! And the instructors are so kind and encouraging! They really care about the kids. We absolutely love it there!

I absolutely love the way the sensei Tabor teaches material. My son struggled with confidence and was extremely shy. We did a lot of research before selecting a good martial arts school. I am so glad we decided on this one, because they focus on so much more then teaching basics of karate. It’s personable. They want your child to succeed in school at home and karate. My son has gained so much self esteem in the six months we have been going. Extremely professional. Highly recommended. You won’t regret it.

CMA has been such a wonderful group of people to work with! They encourage their students to push themselves to reach their full potential. They make lessons fun. My daughter has gained so much confidence in herself that has carried over to all parts of her life. Thank you for doing such a great job!

This school is amazing! The owners and instructors are incredible! They care so much about their students. They do a weekly class for their leadership team in how to encourage, motivate, and work with those students who are shy, scared, or otherwise need extra help. The classes are high energy and a great workout. Whether you are new to martial arts or not, this school can help you reach your goals. With classes for preschoolers, kids, teens and adults, the entire family can participate.

We have been at Fighting Brothers Karate for almost three years. It started with my 9 year old son (now 12). We wanted him to find something to channel his energy since he didn't like sports. Since then, six of the seven of us started as well. We are waiting until the youngest turns three so she can start too. It has been a fantastic thing to do as a family and has brought us closer together. We love it. The staff is fantastic and we feel we are definitely getting our money's worth.

I love this place! They have done everything they can to work with my "difficult" ADHD child including giving him private lessons. Tabor is an awesome sensei and really goes out of his way to work with my son one on one and help him understand. They are all very patient. Thanks Fighting Brothers for being awesome.

I got my son started in Karate because he had been bullied so badly in school that I had begun home schooling him. I wanted him to know how to defend himself and build up his self confidence and get some exercise. Fighting Brothers has meet all my expectations. The atmosphere at FBK was so awesome that I decided to start taking classes as well. The instructors are always positive and are awesome about giving the students positive feedback. They push you physically as well, so I feel that I always get a good workout!

Martial Arts for Preschoolers

Martial Arts for Preschoolers

You might be asking, “Is 3 years old too young for martial arts?” The answer is, it depends on what you are looking for. Here at Championship Martial Arts, our 3 and 4 year old program focuses on teaching coordination, focus, social skills, respect, responsibility, and preparing them for kindergarten. If these are skills you would like your child to learn, then absolutely martial arts will be great for them.

Coordination

Preschool children are still developing their fine and gross motor skills. Through age appropriate activities, martial arts can help them improve their balance, learn how to recognize their rights and lefts, move their arms and legs independently, and reach important physical milestones. Getting the appropriate amount of physical activity starting at a young age will set them up with healthy habits to last a lifetime.

Focus

As we all know, teaching our children how to focus can seem like a daunting task. A key component of martial arts training for preschoolers is helping them learn to focus. They are taught to focus with their eyes, ears, and body through games, martial arts skills, and age appropriate mat chats. Parents are often involved in class to reinforce how focusing at home is just as important.

Social Skills

Developing good social skills is crucial for young children, especially as they are preparing for preschool and kindergarten. Sportsmanship, confidence, eye contact, speaking up, patiently waiting their turn, etc are just a few things we teach at Championship Martial Arts. Every three months we have a belt test for the Little Ninjas and they are expected to take turns standing in front of the class and performing what they have learned. This is a great opportunity for them to practice being confident and focused while they are performing and patient while they watch and cheer on the other students when it’s their turn.

Respect

Have you ever noticed how adept at talking back three year olds can be? They are learning how to communicate and finally have words to express themselves. This can lead to a seeming lack of respect at times. Really they just need to learn how to use their words and actions appropriately. Respect is a major component of martial arts. Each class starts and ends with a bow, showing respect to themselves and the instructor. They are taught repeatedly how to show respect at karate and at home as they learn to raise their hands and patiently wait their turns.

Responsibility

Every lesson includes opportunities to talk about responsibility. When working on punch combos, we stress the importance of keeping your hands up to protect your face. This is your responsibility, just as it is your responsibility to pick up your toys when you are done playing. This is a lesson that is repeated in just about every class, and it is amazing to see how well it sinks in.

If you are looking for an activity to help prepare your child for preschool, kindergarten, and life in general, consider enrolling them in martial arts. You will be setting them up for a lifetime of success.
