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.

Here are 4 of the hidden benefits to having a child in Martial Arts…

 

 

 

 

 

Hey CK SKILLZ Parents !

Have you ever had that friend that asked “Why is your son/daughter in martial arts?” I am sure you have. I am also sure that you were able to provide a great answer to that question. I was recently asked that question as well! Before I replied, I knew I really wanted to get to the heart of what we do at ck skillz, beyond the typical responses. So instead, I remembered a few hidden benefits that I hear most often from our parents!

Here are 4 of the hidden benefits to having a child in Martial Arts:

“Structured” Physical Activity

Notice we didn’t just say “physical activity”! It is easy for moms/dads to take their kids to the playground and watch them have free time for an hour or so. But not our parents, they have invested in something far more valuable for their kids! Our classes are made with the brain in mind and are therefore structured so that we are able to deliver the most up to date information, in a manner that each age group can retain. So not only are our students getting the physical exercise they need stay fit and healthy; they are getting the intellectual stimulation they need to help them stay sharp at school!

Socially Positive Stress Relief

There is no doubt that the pressures of school academics and social pressures weigh on our kids releasing lots of cortisol which is retroactive to leading an emotionally stable lifestyle. This can be seen especially during back to school seasons. But the good news is that even after a stressful or busy day, our students are able to come to ck skillz where we have built a community in which they can feel safe, confident, and free to be themselves. Many students also create friendships here that will last a lifetime as well!

Powerful Positive Role Models

Our staff is proud that you chose us to be the positive role models in your child’s life. We take that seriously which is why each of our instructors is trained to use the SKILLZ system. SKILLZ allows us to understand each individual physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. We are also trained in positive reinforcement techniques that can generate results quicker than many traditional systems that often cause children to step backwards behaviorally.

Little “wins” add up

We all want our kids to have huge goals, and to achieve them. In our martial arts programs our students learn that each major win is accomplished through smaller victories. Every class our students work hard to earn a skill stripe; each testing cycle they are rewarded for their daily effort by achieving a new rank. This cycle continues to be reinforced and eventually they will know the elation that comes when they have their first black belt tied around their waist. This lesson is valuable beyond words and will help each child for many years in the future.

We hope this has been informational, enlightening even! Feel free to share this with your friends next time we come up in conversation!
