Reasons to enrol your child in our self defence program

No1 - Increased Confidence
Confidence is the difference between what a child can actually do vs. what they think they can do. You’ll see your child grow more and more confident, and confront new challenges both inside and outside of our school with a sense of drive and purpose.

No 2 - The Ability to Defend Themselves Mentally, Emotionally AND Physically If they ever need it, your child will certainly learn to defend themselves physically. But far more importantly, they’ll be able to fend off the mental onslaught of peer pressure and the emotional weight of bullying and unkind behaviour. These are things they’ll desperately need as they grow older.

No 3 - Soaring Self Esteem
The most important thing your child will get from us is a tremendously positive sense of self. They’ll be able to objectively recognize things they need to improve (homework, family interaction, and physical effort) without feeling hopeless, and they’ll take pride in the things they get right without discounting or minimizing their achievements. This will be invaluable for them as adults.

No 4 - An Appreciation for Exercise
If you want kids to stay healthy, they have to enjoy their exercise. Our classes are fitness oriented, but are so much fun your child will beg to come. They’ll actually love doing pushups, jumping jacks and crunches (Sounds crazy, but it’s true!). They’ll take pride in their improved flexibility and stamina, and they’ll leave class everyday sweating and smiling.
