I have had the pleasure of knowing and training with Sifu Rob over the last few years. In that time, he has proven that he is dedicated to his art and is determined to pass it on so that the next generation can prosper. I recently had the privilege of going and watching one of his "Dragonfly" kids classes and it is one of the best I've seen in almost two decades of training. I highly recommend his school to any and all that would take that step to better themselves.

Honestly, this is the real deal. I appreciate the professionalism, investment, and encouragement I’ve received from Sifu Rob. I am confident that as I progress, I will actually instill self-defense into myself, and in my life. It will come naturally with real practice! Sifu Rob hasn’t just gone through the motions. He actually makes sure I understand everything he’s teaching me, and shows me how useful it will be. There are no free passes here. You will always know for sure that you earned the belt you’re given. If you’d like to learn a martial art in a place where you will be invested in, encouraged to reach your potential, and where you can be sure you’ll be getting legitimate training, I’d highly recommend Bill Gregory’s Kajukenpo.

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts, students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies

Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear. However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to
initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.
Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
