I’m Kriss Hurdle, Partner here at Newbury Park Martial Arts Center.
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.
Any of these challenges?
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
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.
LIFELONG CHARACTER AND SUCCESS TRAITS
Your kids’ everyday friends aren’t the main concern anymore when it comes to character development. Now you have to worry about all the negative and harmful influences that the internet can introduce into your children’s lives.
The true benefit or our classes are the character and success traits that are developed through martial arts training.
Through learning the skills and techniques of martial arts, to the guidance and inspiration of our instructors and the positive social interaction with their fellow classmates, your kids will develop a whole list of skills.
Face it. Between the foods we eat and the constant sitting and staring into screens and devices, many kids aren’t getting enough regular exercise.
Our martial arts classes for kids are full exercise routines disguised as a boatload of fun! That’s because they are jam packed with activities, games and drills that are all designed to disguise the repetition of training.
Of course it’s important for your kids to exercise and wear themselves out – they stay healthy, sleep well, and develop their minds and bodies. But just as important, our classes will help develop at a young age the physical habits they need to grow into healthy adults.
SELF-DEFENSE FROM PREDATORS AND BULLIES
We never want our kids to have to use these skills in modern life, but every good parent still wants their kids to be safe.
That’s why our martial arts training is very serious about teaching your kids the skills needed for self-protection in any circumstance, from the neighborhood bully to a stranger on the street (and so much more).
But knowing how to defend oneself is only half the battle. Our classes teach your child the respect and self-discipline needed to diffuse a situation without violence whenever possible – as well as the knowledge to know when force is the only way to safety.
TONS OF F-U-N !!
We never forget… kids are kids and they deserve to have some fun!
We can’t guarantee that their normal school teachers are making learning an enjoyable experience, but we DO guarantee that your kid will have a blast in our martial arts classes.
It really is a challenge to design a class that keeps children focused on learning, respect, and discipline while still having fun… but our classes are created just for that. They are so full of ideas, activities, and games that your kids will never get bored or stagnate.
It’s also a fantastic and healthy environment for them (and you) to make friends with other like-minded students. It really is a place where laughter, cheer and happiness abound.
We strongly recommend this DOJO if you wish that your child becomes a person who is both a good scholarship and martial arts. I am a Japanese mom who has an eight years old boy. He has attended this DOJO since he was four years old. I will tell you why so great this DOJO.
1) Children meet the great masters who are well informed about Bushido (the samurai spirit). Children learn it from them such as Respect, Manners, and Spirit of ”fights for the weak against the strong.".
2) Children practice KATA of defense over and over again. Kata practitioners do not just master basic skills and posture, but also acquire the body movements. So they become to move their body without thinking about it, learned by repeating Kata many times.
3) Dojo is family operated. All staff are friendly and watch over children grow up with a warm heart.
I hope that you understand my English!
It doesn't get any better in my humble experience. Not partial Arts but Martial Arts that cultivate body, mind and spirit. My children can't wait to go , and i love it too!
NPMAC is an exceptional martial arts studio. We have been bringing our kids here (5 and 7) for 2 years and we have been amazed at the progress they have made. They teach real-world, real-life scenarios, preparing our boys for whatever may come their way in life. The instructors are all extremely knowledgeable, patent and interested in the improvement of the students. Highly recommended. You will not regret it.
This place is perfect for improving all sorts of important attributes of little tykes -- regular exercise, focus, discipline, understanding of rules, respect, and the concept and physical underpinnings of self-defense, plus a lot more . . .
Love, love, LOVE this place! It's not only great for the kids but for us parents too. A good combination of practical self defense, fitness, meditation and guidance on being the best person you can be. I come out of every class both stronger and calmer. Can't say enough positive things.
This is a great dojo with wonderful patrons and a caring staff. My kids love their “ninja” classes and I love taking classes knowing each day I become more powerful and confident.
A true gem teaching life skills that go well beyond what you expect to find in a martial center. The staff is warm, friendly, and encouraging to all the students. Staff members are visibly present on the mat and in the training area, actively engaged with the students. Students training are smiling and cheering each other throughout the various exercises I witnessed and the environment was overwhelming positive. Training had a unique approach, encouraging the students to use words deterring aggression, and the physical techniques showed flexible responses depending the real-life situation that might arise. The facility is very well maintained and extremely clean. This place is truly unique and unlike any other martial school I've been in.
My kids have been coming here on & off for a few years - now my 11 year old is working on her 3rd belt! Very clean, professional. LOVE how the teaching focus is on being the Protector - highly recommend this place!
