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!

My middle daughter has been enrolled a little over a month and she loves it. I just signed up her sister for kickboxing too! Great family atmosphere, and great structure for the kids!

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!

How to Motivate Your Kid to Take up Karate With the rise of small gadgets that have slowly become the answer to almost all our needs, we are falling into the great epidemic of obesity. According to reports, nearly 40 percent of adults and 17 percent American children are obese. Moreover, children with obesity pace 30 percent higher rates of mortality in the young and middle-aged adult.

It is vital that you keep your child physically fit to make sure they do not face health problems in the future. Karate is a healthy way of making sure your child gets regular age-appropriate exercises along with the benefit of developing great self-defense, discipline and self-reliance skills. But your decision is not the final call. If your child does not feel interested, but you force them to go, they will probably slack off because they will not be motivated. Here are a few ways to warm your child up to Martial Arts. Show them Videos Movies and certain YouTube comments are a great way to get them hooked.

Show them what they can do and how fun it can be. Sometimes, it is not about telling them or even asking them to do it. It is all about making them want to take the task on their own. It is the best way, as they will take responsibility for their own decisions. Check out Competitions One more visual way to motivate them is to take them to competitions. When they see children of their age and even those younger than them doing cool things, they feel like doing them too?

We the humans intrinsically need to feel included, copying good things makes us feel a part of something. Involve Their Friends Another thing that the humans like to do in be a part of a community. It is the reason why we live in societies and give up so many of our own opinions and rights. We love to be around people like ourselves. Do the same things with them, share similar experiences and make good memories. Even children have this sense. They form groups and cliques of their own early on. It is an excellent idea to somehow tag their friends along as well. Try to communicate with their parents and plan things together.

Be Involved Karate in just for kids, even parents can learn it and be physically fit. Set an example by showing your children that you walk the walk. Martial arts are not just great for physical fitness, but they also do wonders for mental health. Learning and executing the techniques require quite a lot of planning and mental effort. Being along with your kids through the process will not just motivate them but make it a family affair and reinforce their commitment.

You can use all of these options and even improvise on them based on how your kid thinks. Just remember that the task needs to be fun and the kids need to take it willingly. Otherwise, it will be hard for them to continue.
