Our daughter LOVES everything about coming to classes! She started last May, and hasn't looked back. Her confidence has grown so much, starting within weeks of starting! She loves how every week she is learning new skills, she loves the staff and she loves the challenges that they give them every week to work on. She looks forward to classes every week, and jumped at the opportunity to sign up for extra classes that would help her learn more. She went from being a complete gymnastics girl to everything karate. Her Christmas list was filled with rebreakable boards, pads, punching bags, t-shirts, room decorations and anything else she could think of to practice karate or that was karate! It's only been about 10 months, but you can't meet this girl and not know that she loves karate, and we have Canton Karate to thank for this! Overall, the staff at Canton Karate has changed our daughter in so many ways, but especially in her confidence! We're so glad we found them!

The kids enjoy it, they learn to be more disciplined and behaved at the same time! Master Martin is exceptionally patient (I know because I get frustrated just watching it) and is a wonderful instructor. I am very happy with the way he mentors his pupils especially while he has his assistant instructors available to give one on one instruction to those that struggle. Having my children in his classes and seeing what they actually learn, accomplish and develop into is well worth the cost.

The Perfect Martial Arts School. Master Martin does a great job of combining all of the elements of martial arts into the curriculum, There is a mixture of history, discipline and practical application. The classes are also taught specifically for each age group to maximize the benefit of the kids and adults. What is being taught will resonate with a 3 or 4 year old (my son) or an adult(myself).

My son goes here and loves it. Master Martin is great with the kids. They work on focus, concentration, self discipline, confidence and many more things kids need. My son is always excited to go and it's great to see the smile on his face. I see the improvement at home and in school since he has been going.

Canton Karate has been amazing for our family! My two have been enrolled for 6 months now. They have always struggled with attention, focus, and self control and it was beginning to impact school. They LOVE Karate! They want to practice at home, and love going to class. and their performance in school has made a complete turnaround! For the first time my daughter's teacher this year says she is focused, attentive, and hard working!
Master Martin is patient but firm and disciplined. He treats each student differently in class. and that's a good thing! I don't know how but he seems to know what every student needs to personally challenge them. I find myself repeating Master Martin's words around the house and at work. They did love the Saturday forms/sparring class and we will miss that. But we are all excited to see what comes next!

My son started Karate lessons at Canton Karate several months ago and we can't be happier with that decision! My son has gained so much confidence. On his first day, he was so nervous to step onto that mat. Master Martin and the rest of the staff were so patient and encouraging with him. He loves going now and has so much fun at each class. Master Martin and all the staff at Canton Karate are so encouraging, helpful and very accessible. I can't say enough good things! I highly recommend Canton Karate!

Amazing place with AMAZING staff!! The way they work with kids is wonderful! You truly feel like family from the time you walk in the door. They offer so many different class options. My kids have learned so much already from their short time here. I'm amazed at the new skills and discipline they are learning. The confidence I'm seeing fostered in my children is great. Master Martin has an amazing way of dealing with the kids. It is usually in a way that corrects the problem without disrupting everyone else. Can't wait till my 4 year old is ready to start as well. Thank you Canton Karate!!

Canton Karate is a great place for kids to teach them how to respect others, self esteem, and how to treat bullies. I would recommend Canton Karate to all my friends. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. I'm glad that we are part of the Canton Karate family. My grandson has learned so much in just a short period of time of being here. He really looks forward on coming here and getting out of his shell. Thank you Canton Karate.

5 Ways To Spice Up your Meals & Your Health!

5 Ways To Spice Up your Meals & Your Health!

Adding spice to your meals will provide extra flavors and more importantly, boost your health and immune system.

Spicing up your food doesn’t just make it tasty, it also gives you much needed health benefits.

Every time we cook a meal, we usually add in the common spices: garlic, salt, and pepper.  It can add a lot of flavor and bring out the food’s natural flavor as well.  Did you know that, when you consume garlic, it helps boost your immune system to fight off colds and it can lower your blood pressure?  Go ahead and add a few more sprinkles of garlic to your meal.  Or, even better, roast some fresh garlic chunks and throw it in your next pasta dish, grilled chicken, or steak.  Yum!

The Earth and our gardens have a lot more to bring to the table than we may realize.  Have you ever made rosemary chicken?  Well, if not, you should try it – especially if you or your children suffer from allergies.  Rosemary has an active ingredient called rosmarinic acid, which helps to suppress allergic responses and nasal congestion.  Wow!  Who would have thought?  All that flavor, and it even helps fight allergies and congestion!

Cinnamon, Yummy!  If you live anywhere that apple orchards and fall activities are abundant, you will always find plenty scents and flavors everywhere, a few being apples, cinnamon, and pumpkin spice.  You can practically smell the cinnamon in the air!  Cinnamon comes from the bark of a cinnamon tree, and is a natural and yummy way to add flavor to many dishes, drinks, and desserts. Cinnamon not only tastes great, but it helps lower blood sugar as well.  Go ahead and add that cinnamon stick to your apple cider, or sprinkle that cinnamon on your apple; enjoy your healthy snack!

Let’s Talk Turmeric!  You have probably seen posts and ads stating how great turmeric is.  Well, it’s true!

Turmeric has proven itself to be very useful in lowering inflammation.  For those not familiar with turmeric, it is the spice that gives curry its yellowish color.  Turmeric contains a wonderful compound called curcuminCurcumin is a known antioxidant and a very strong anti- inflammatory, which can help improve brain function, fight cancer, manage arthritis, and lessen the effects of Alzheimer’s, to name a few.

Holy Basil, Batman!  Did you know basil helps fight infection and boosts immunity?

I personally love basil and so does my family.  We love it so much, we plant a ton of various types in our garden every year.  Basil adds such a yummy flavor to many dishes.  Holy Basil is a very well-known basil in India.  It helps reduce the growth of molds, bacteria, and yeast, and even helps reduce blood sugar when eating after meals.  Some even believe it helps reduce anxiety.

We have so many wonderful, natural ways to help heal and keep our bodies in tip top shape!  There are so many other spices that have proven themselves to be great for our bodies – Ginger to relieve nausea and Cayenne to ease pain.  Take a little time one day to sit down and read just how wonderful spices are.

Don’t be afraid to add some spice to your meals!  Along with adding yummy flavors, you’re also adding a world of benefits to help your body, heal and grow.  The saying is true: you are what you eat! 😉
