How is your school different from other Martial Arts schools?
While most schools focus solely on kicking and punching, Championship Martial Arts also has a life skills curriculum. Of course, our students do develop exceptional skills in all areas of technique and self defense, but just as important, they develop important skills that they can put to use outside of the Karate School. Skills like: Self-Confidence, Self-Control, Positive Thinking, Listening Skills, Respect and Good Manners. They also learn the Ability to Focus Attention, have Perseverance and display Courage.
What about fitness?
Your child will be having so much fun in class they won't even notice the calories they are burning and muscle toning that is happening to their bodies. You will see increased energy and mental focus (great for school!) and they will feel more motivated and enthusiastic about all of their activities. Your child will improve their fitness and have loads of fun doing it.

Can karate help my shy child?
Parents constantly tell us how their son or daughter is more confident in new situations and more outgoing in school and with their friends. As a matter of fact, one of the lessons a child learns is how to introduce themselves to other children and make new friends. This confidence spills over into schoolwork, sports and other activities.
