This is more than martial arts. It's a family. I could not recommend KMA more - the instructors are incredible and the impact they have on both kids and adults is truly life changing.

The KMA staff could not be more compassionate, friendly, welcoming and supportive. They go above and beyond to support a child doing his or her best, not only at KMA, but in every aspect of their lives.

Both of my kids go here, and I started training recently, too. It really is an amazing place. The best words to describe KMA are Welcoming, Supportive, and Inspiring. They went out of their way to help us with some discipline issues we were having with our child. And we've seen real improvement. Can't recommend KMA highly enough!

MARTIAL ARTS AND CHILDREN’S BEHAVIOR

Activities like Martial Arts are a fun way for both boys and girls to achieve fitness and focus. Some parents may think they also promote violence, but that’s a myth, according to experts. The martial arts actually help teach a variety of skills like self-discipline, socialization, self-respect, self-control, self-defense, self esteem, focus, confidence, and courtesy.. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids.

A typical class is about an hour long. It begins and ends with a bow to the teacher, or master. After a warm-up, students practice the martial art’s skills, which may include kicks, punches and blocks. Each requires concentration and strict attention when practicing.

Progress is marked by the belt system, which takes you from beginner white belt through a variety of colors until you reach black. You test for each new level, generally every three months, is a good help for setting and achieving goals.

Experts say that it’s the respect kids learn, whether from bowing or standing still and waiting for the next command, that can be the most important benefit.

These benefits often carry over into school, helping to improve behavior and even grades, according to recent research.
