Excellent instruction from all the coaches. They are knowledgeable and patient, and always willing to walk you through the moves. I've been going to the kickboxing class for about 3 years and I've definitely gained muscles! The best part is that it's still just as fun and challenging as it was when I first started. Never gets old.

Absolute has made a huge impact on my family. Before joining, I was intimidated by kickboxing classes but after one class I realized my fear had no merit - the folks at Absolute are like family now. I am stronger, healthier, more confident and happier than I was before, and I have made some amazing friends. Even on those days I don't want to get off the couch, once I get to the studio my whole attitude is changed and I am pumped. Absolute is always adding new classes, new sessions, and holding events & contests for us to stay engaged. It's been over 4 years for me and it never gets old!

My two sons joined me over a year ago - one in Jiu Jitzu and one in kids class - and both have shown tremendous growth. Ms Ana and the kids class have brought out the best in my 1st grader, teaching him respect, determination and pride in accomplishments. We love Absolute!

Such a fantastic place! The people are so welcoming here, that they take the intimidation out of learning something new, especially as an adult learning - and they really care about teaching you and pushing you to be your best. Absolutely love coming here for classes, seeing everyone weekly, and learning Muay Thai!

What to Expect When Enrolling Your Kid in a Martial Arts School

Over the years the practice of teaching martial arts, karate to children has shown the quite amazing result. As opposed to what some people might think, an activity that induces violence it is one that regulates it. Children learn to control both their bodies and mind through martial arts. On first lessons, most teachers tell their students never to use their skills unless they are in a very tight spot. They advise them to contact a teacher or parent if possible.

A Sense of Accomplishment

With martial arts, children do just learn to protect themselves, but they also get a sense of accomplishment. By progressing in the process, their confidence increases and their school performance also improve research has shown that children with ADD and ADHD show a significant change in their behaviors after joining the classes. In fact, the training helps them concentrate better on other tasks as well.

 

A Sense of Responsibility

It is normal if you want to enroll your kids in a martial arts school and have no idea about what to expect. When you are thinking about enrolling your child in a martial arts class there, you should know that there is a certain level of responsibility attached to the tasks that are assigned. Children learn to take charge and also to rely on themselves. The classes prepare them from worst-case scenarios and teach them how to protect themselves.

They do not just learn to have a healthy sense of self, but they also learn social skills. They value others as well, along with sparring and physical moves. They also learn valuable life lessons and self-discipline that goes a long way. The routine practices and rules help the children to focus and restrain themselves.

Physical Fitness

You can expect that your child will have age appropriate and regular workouts. Through martial arts, they can be both mentally and physically fit. But before you sign up at any school, take a tour. Pay attention to their goals and objectives. Find out what kind of martial arts suits your child best. Talk to the teachers, find out what their teaching philosophies are. Learning martial arts is not all about the physical battle. It is also a psychological process. See how the teacher treats the students. What kind of techniques they are teaching because some techniques can be harmful to the growing bodies of the children. Ask questions, and see how they receive them. Judge the way they answer those questions and the actual answers themselves.

Martial art is the entire package as it does not just work on the physical and mental aspect of humans but also their spiritual aspects. They allow the children to spar and work out with one another. Being in the same conditions teaches them empathy and teamwork. Many parents have seen remarkable changes in the behaviors of their children as a result of these classes. Remember, at all times, that martial arts can be an outlet for anger but not a cause of aggression.
