are many positive reasons including control of aggressiveness, instilling
self-respect and self-control, as well as self-defense. We have found that
children who study at John Cox Martial Arts (JCMA) classes achieve the
- Improved Report Cards: Our classes teach the
importance of concentration, focus, discipline and perseverance.
Improvement in these areas means that your child will learn more at
school. Therefore, you can expect your child to receive better grades for
both academics and attitude.
- Positive Attitudes:
Children in our program learn to
have a positive and respectful attitude.
The children will learn to be respectful of their parents and
- Self-Confidence: It's true, children who take Martial Arts develop
greater self-confidence. They're encouraged , to push themselves further
than they thought possible. The success they experience through Martial
Arts teaches them that they can be successful at anything if they truly
believe they can, and are willing to work hard. Improved confidence leads
to better grades, a better circle of friends, better performance in sports
and extracurricular activities in general.
- Fitness: At John Cox Martial Arts Fitness is is one of our highest priorities for your child. Our programs contain many developmental exercises that enhance your child's physical, mental and emotional well being.
- Self-Defense: Martial Arts teaches three forms of
self-defense. One is physical - your child will improve his or her
strength, flexibility, and overall health.
Hopefully, your child will never be picked on or need to physically
defend themselves. . .but should the occasion arise, they will have a very
strong basis to protect themselves.
The second form of self-defense Martial Arts teaches is internal.
Children learn to spot danger and avoid dangerous people, places and
activities. Martial Arts can help your child avoid the need for a physical
confrontation through awareness and mental focus. The third form is
emotional….your child will realize and feel their sense of value and thus
feel positive in how they think and act.
