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.

The importance of Magnesium rich foods.

 

Make sure you’re eating the right foods to help balance your vitamins and minerals.

It is so extremely hard to find time to make healthy meals these days, with our ever-busy schedules.

We are forever running from one thing to the next.  We rush from the time we wake up, to the time we hit the bed; our day is filled with going to work, getting the kids to and from school, taking them to dance, sports or a school event.

By the time we get home, cooking a meal is the last thing we want to do. So, we stop at one of the local fast food joints, or order in one of my favorites ­­– pizza.

We think that is enough, but it’s not. All those fast food places and processed foods are loaded with chemicals, sugars, and high sodium, and lacking all the important nutrients are body needs.

Just because we like something and the kids will eat it, doesn’t make it healthy for us.

Adults and children alike are not getting the proper nutrients from the foods we eat. There are many different reasons for that, but one reason for sure — we are not eating enough green veggies.

One of the minerals many of us seem to be lacking is magnesium.

Magnesium is vital to our bodies and plays an important part in our moods and bones.

Below is a list of symptoms from FX Medicine.

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS THAT SHOW KIDS MAY NEED EXTRA MAGNESIUM:

  • Twitching muscles, muscle tension, spasms (particularly in small muscles, such as the eye lid), leg cramps or growing pains
  • Excessive worry, anxiety, irritability and panic attacks
  • Restlessness and difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty maintaining attention, hyperexcitability and hyperactivity
  • Teeth grinding
  • Sensitivity to noise
  • Muscular weakness and lethargy

 

I highly recommend reading the rest of this article from FX Medicine , you may be surprised what you learn about Magnesium and the role it plays. I found out firsthand what role it played in my own child’s life, when he was diagnosed with PANDAS/PANS/OCD and Tourette’s.

I highly recommend talking to your doctor about it, if you or your family show any signs of deficiency, also make sure to be eating a lot of foods rich with magnesium.
