More Than Just Martial Arts Discover the Transformative Powers Martial Arts has on Children! Develops Character and Humanity We all want our kids to change the world and make an impact on future generations. Through a focus on aiming for and achieving goals, we teach kids to shoot for the stars and incrementally chase goals step-by-step. All while instilling values such as love, empathy, respect, humility, and discipline. Encourages Teamwork and Socialization Nothing unites kids better than sharing a common interest. We teach children to work together to better each other and accomplish great things. Bullying in any form is frowned upon and each child learns to embrace each other’s differences. Rewards Unbelievable Listening Skills By learning the value of respect and humility, kids learn to listen attentively to their elders. It starts with an eagerness to learn all the cool moves and “tricks” they see their friends doing but once they realize what they can accomplish by simply paying attention, they begin listening in other areas of life as well. An Environment For Socialization At this young developing age it’s extremely important that kids interact with other children and develop healthy social skills. This helps shape their personality and foster proper communication habits. Our classes provide kids with an environment that encourages socialization as we mix in lessons on teamwork, character, leadership, and communication while they play. These skills are necessary in all areas of life including school, sports, home, activities, and other social events. Google Success Stories The staff here are so amazing!

I’ve seen a big change in her focus from when she started class to now. No matter how many kids are in the class, each student gets the same amount of attention. Mr. Nunneley has a tremendous amount of patience with the kids and I can tell the kids enjoy having him as their teacher. On top of Karate, the kids learn a new message each week that they can incorporate in their lives.

We enrolled our kindergarten-age son Innovative Martial Arts, Mr. Nunneley, and his staff are all amazing! We enrolled our kindergarten-age son on a trial basis over a year ago, and we could see a big difference in him right away. His confidence has been given a boost and he is learning the importance of respect for self and others. Mr Nunneley teaches so much more than martial arts. They have huddled in class where they discuss important topics such as eating healthy foods, respecting parents and teachers, being responsible, stranger awareness, bully prevention, etc. These class discussions have been invaluable for us. Our son is really proud of himself when he works hard and earns his black and red belt tips, and when he earns his next belt. It’s awesome to see him grow and learn that hard work pays off. We also booked the studio for our son’s birthday party last year and the kids had a great time! They were all tired out too by the end of it. Win win for both kids and parents! Read more Hide Zoila Koy Behavioral And Character Development Although it may seem early, we can say with complete certainty that it’s much easier to instill a good quality than it is to replace a bad one. We touch on topics like respect and cooperation so toddlers will grow into well behaved children and avoid the behavioral challenges kids pick up from negative influences. Nothing brings us more satisfaction than watching students grow into honorable, exemplary human beings and we believe that starts with the foundations of respect and responsibility. FAQs Is Martial Arts a safe activity for my child? Collapse Our team of certified instructors follow safety protocols to ensure a safe and supportive environment for our students. In fact, unlike sports which has one adult supervising an entire team, we have multiple instructors monitoring a room at all times making sure everything runs smoothly. Especially considering the young age of students in our Junior Martial Arts class, your child will never be placed in a dangerous or uncomfortable situation. Is Martial Arts Violent? Expand Martial Arts is often depicted as a violent activity but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The mindset behind martial arts involves harmony, peace, tranquility, and connection to the body. The majority of training focuses around movement and energy. We teach kids how to talk through conflicts and seek the guidance of an adult with the authority to help. However, if an unavoidable violent situation arises in your child’s life, they now have the tools to fend off the attack and safely escape the situation. How does Martial Arts help my child develop? Expand Other than essential movement and physical activity, martial arts also instills important life skills like discipline, honor, confidence, and respect. We also place great emphasis on balance, coordination, reflexes, memory, mental sharpness, communication, and behavioral skills to ensure we’re providing a valuable, transformative curriculum. Can we try the program before signing up? Expand We encourage all parents to start out with a trial package. It’s important that students feel out our program before deciding and only continue if they’re absolutely certain martial arts is the right move. If after a trial package ends you’re not completely satisfied, we’re more than happy to issue a full refund. Parents are also more than welcome to sit in on a session before hand or reach out to our team for a deeper, more personal conversation. ACCESS OUR SCHEDULE & OUR EXCLUSIVE WEB SPECIALS!
