CHILDREN'S CLASSES

There 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 following benefits:
  • 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 teachers.
  • 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.
  • 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.
