Decreased Parent Separation Anxiety

Every Kicks Karate location has a parent seating area where parents can observe classes.  This provides a unique level of comfort for younger children as they learn to interact with others.  Parents are close enough for their children to feel comfortable in a new environment, and far enough to allow their children to interact independently with their instructors and other students.  Kicks Karate instructors are specially trained to stimulate, educate, and entertaint students in a safe, fun-filled atmosphere for learning.

Early School Preparation

Allow your child to get a headstart in the classroom.  Kicks Karate students are taught a number of skills that translate very well into the classroom.  Students practice simple skills like:

  • standing quietly in line
  • listening closely to their instructor
  • looking in the eyes for concentration

These skills are practiced over and over again in our classes.  This "disguised repitition" actually allows your child to intentionally practice good behavior skills while having fun in the process.

Improved Attention Span

Over time, children can develop a bad habit of letting their eyes wander while someone is talking to them.  If never corrected, this can hurt a child's ability to concentrate in school, at home and eventually at work. 

Looking in the eyes is one of the most basic skills we teach our students.  Your child will learn to always look in the eyes when someone is talking to her.

First-time-listening is another important skill our students are taught.  Students learn to practice only having to be told once to do something by an instructor.

Improved Motor Skills

At this age your child's basic balance, agility, and coordination are still being developed.  Your child will become more successful in martial arts and other physical activities as he develops and refines his motor skills while learning fundamental martial arts techniques.

Improved Social Skills

Our classes are structured to allow students to socially interact with each other.  While learning in a strict non-contact environment, your child will perform non-contact group drills with other students in the class.

Learning Environment

Edu-tainment

Successful life skills and habits take practice, time and energy to develop.  Kicks Karate instructors are taught to be experts in "edu-tainment".  Students learn better if they are learning and having fun at the same time. 

Top Flight Instruction (maximum 5-1 student/teacher ratio)

All of our students get the personalized instruction they will need to advance through our low student/teacher ratios.

Safe, clean and sanitary learning environment

All of our schools are professionally cleaned every evening to maintain a clean and sanitary environment for our students to train in. We understand how important this is to our students and their parents.

Flex-schedule

Classes are offered six days per week for your convenience with a wide variety of days and times to choose from.

We understand that kids are involved in a wide variety of activities, and these activities sometimes have very strict schedules. Those activities may not have flexibility, but we do.  Even someone with the most hectic schedule will be able to find class times to suit their schedule with us.

Preparation to Succeed

Kicks Karate Children's Program

Our Little Ninja's program was designed to help your child succeed in school and at home.  We've put together a fantastic program geared specifically for the developmental needs of children ages 5 to 7 to help them reach success at any age.

Personal Growth & Achievement

Improved Life Skills

Aside from physical martial arts skills, Kicks Karate students also go through the Kicks Karate trademarked Life Skills/Safe Skills program.

Designed by Master Bussard and taught only at Kicks Karate, this is a priceless collection of lessons on respect, self-control, proper attitude, and many other topics. These lessons are read aloud in every children's class and they are really what the essence of the martial arts is all about.

Also included are lessons on how to de-escalate situations, nonviolent conflict resolution strategies and "bully-basics".

Respectful Attitude

Respect is a foundation aspect of martial arts.  Students are not just told to respect each other.  Students learn to respect each other by bowing to one another and maintaining eye contact with each other during the class. 

Desire for Growth & Achievement

There are no bench-warmers in martial arts.  Kicks Karate offers a personalized, built-in reward system for students.  Because children grow and develop at different paces, we track student progress on an individual, personal basis.  Your child will quickly learn that he can earn his next belt if he puts in the amount of time and energy necessary to achieve it. 

Even more importantly, they develop a winning attitude and the self-confidence to repel bullies before an altercation occurs.

Learning Environment

Top Flight Instruction (maximum 8-1 student/teacher ratio)

All of our students get the personalized instruction they will need to advance through our low student/teacher ratios. 

Students will train under at least 2 - 3 full-time professional black belt instructors at every Kicks Karate location as well up to 8 - 10 black belt staff members.  Our staff is trained in the most modern and effective teaching methods to ensure that all our students are taught properly and safely.

Belt Level Divisions

At Kicks Karate we not only divide our students into specific age groups, but we also divide our classes by belt ranks. This allows us to truly focus in on the specific skills that each belt level is trying to master and pace the classes appropriately.

More Than Just a Workout

Personal Development

Self-defense involves more than just physical skills.  The practice of martial arts will help you gain physical, mental, and emotional self-defense skills. 

You will soon notice:

  • Improvement in your flexibility and fitness level
  • Reduced stress level
  • More energy to enjoy the rest of your life.
  • Mastery of our “easy to learn”, proven self-defense techniques
  • Confidence to protect yourself and your family if the need ever arises

Mental Self-Defense

As you continue to progress through the belt system at Kicks Karate, you learn how to be aware but not on-guard.  You are taught and prepared to react to situations, not to look for them. 

Emotional Self-Defense

"Words will never hurt me..."

When we were kids, we were told "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me."  As good as that sounds, it is often not true.  Words can create deep wounds, especially in someone with low self-esteem.  Kicks Karate students are able to gain a sense of accomplishment while improving self-esteem as they learn new skills and progress through the belt ranking system. 

Respect for Others, by Others

You will learn a great level of respect for your instructors as well as your other students as you train under professional martial artists.  As you progress through the rankings you will also begin to notice how other students begin to deepen their respect for you. 

Tradition

At Kicks Karate, we attempt to respect the past while embracing the present.  Our techniques originated with Shu Do Kan karate.  While some of our curriculum has been adapted to better fit the self-defense needs of today, you will be practicing martial arts techniques that have been passed down for hundreds of years. 

Life Skills

Skills you will learn at Kicks Karate also carry over to other areas in life.  Balance, for example, is required to throw a kick.  However, it's also required when you are training with a partner; you must balance your drive with his pace and understand when it is right to push him and when to encourage him.

Learning Environment

Classes divided by skill level

We subdivide our teen and adult classes classes into smaller groups to focus on the specific needs of beginner, intermediate and advanced students. This allows students to train at the appropriate level for constant improvement.

Top Flight Instruction

Our Black Belt instructors are certified and taught by Master John Bussard. They are trained in the most modern and effective teaching methods to ensure that all our students are taught properly and safely. In addition, our staff knows how to make sure that classes are fun and enjoyable.

Flex-Schedule

We understand that our students lives are very busy. That's why we recommend that students try to average approximately two classes per week. We offer a very flexible schedule to allow for a wide variety of days and times to choose from for your convenience.

Safe and Clean Learning Environment

All of our schools are professionally cleaned every evening to maintain a clean and sanitary environment for our students to train in. We understand how important this is to our student body.
