When my son was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD),
our doctor recommend martial arts instruction as a method to increase
his focus, concentration, and provide a structured environment
that would give him a physical and mental outlet. 
Enrolling my child in Martial Arts was the best thing I could have done. ”

MARTIAL ARTS DEVELOPS CONCENTRATION,
CONFIDENCE, AND SELF DISCIPLINE IN KIDS

SELF
DIsCIPLINE

Getting a child to do what they are told can be challenging enough, and our program will develop respectful disciplined kids, but more important is getting a child to do what they are not told. Develop self discipline is children where they have the knowledge to know what they should do, and they do it! This trait will be invaluable as they grow into successful teens and adults.

CONFIDENCE
GROWTH

A confidence child is a happy child. They no longer live in anxiety or fear. Confidence is the first step to get a child to succeed at all areas of life. Once confidence is developed, the instructors at our studio can now begin getting a child to perform at a level that was once un-thought of for them.

INCREASED CONCENTRATION & FOCUS

Children will begin by keeping their eyes focus on the eyes of people speaking to them. They will begin paying more attention to their teachers and for longer periods of time, therefore hearing and learning more. Focus is like a muscle, the more you use it, the better and stronger it gets. With martial arts training at Premier Martial Arts we train children muscles and mind.
