In addition to our internationally recognized Karate for Kids program, we offer the Taekwondo for Tiny Tigers program. The Tiny Tiger program was developed specifically for pre school aged children ages 4 through 6. This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect and discipline. In addition, the program is designed to improve children`s motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. All classes are taught using the safest, most fun and exciting instruction methods available for this age group.

There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the martial arts. We have developed a program based on traditional Taekwondo for kids called ” Karate For Kids”.

Krav Maga is the officially hand to hand combat system of the Israeli Defense Forces. It is also the preferred systems for the U.S Military and law enforcement personnel. Krav Maga is not a traditional martial arts, no katas, no rituals. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real life self defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, bearhugs as well as weapons such as guns, knives and sticks. Just as important we trach people to function during the stress and shock of a sudden and violent encounter.

What`s Happening @ Tactical Martial Arts

Hello Everyone!

We hope everyone is doing well during this challenging time, but this too shall pass! We just wanted to get everyone up to date on what is going on here at the school and our current “game plan”.

CLASSES

We have been teaching classes virtually since mid March and after much trial and error, we have began using Zoom vs. Facebook Live and You Tube. Reason being, is that with Zoom, we do not experience the delays and sometimes  getting booted offline as we did with the lives, which was becoming rather problematic for all of us, especially the students trying to learn new material. Also, with Zoom, if you are not able to get onto the class at that time, we can send out a recording of the meetings, so sort of like with You Tube, you can watch it on your own time. Best of both worlds right? We currently have a schedule of teaching virtual classes Tuesday- Thursday, classes are broken down like they are on our regular schedule. We have Tiny Tigers, Karate For Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga offered during various times throughout the day.

 

On the week of April 27th, we began allowing up to six students to attend in house classes here at Tactical Martial Arts during various class times as well. We are using extreme caution by social distancing and continuing to thoroughly sanitize all surfaces prior, during and after every class. As well as  checking temperatures of every individual that enters the building and making sure students are sanitizing their equipment prior to each class. We are also offering private lessons where students can either come into the facility prior to classes or virtually and work individually with an instructor, this is proving to be successful as well.

 

We plan to continue offering all three class options (virtual, in facility and private lessons) until at least the beginning of June. We will send out updates are changes occur.

 

We are currently sending out the links for both in facility and virtual classes to all students on Wednesday the week prior to the classes.

Example, today is 5/6/2020, we just emailed the links for the week of May 11.

 

Unsure about joining us? Register NOW for a 5 Class Trial for JUST $25.00. This is valid for Tiny Tigers, Karate for Kids, Adult Taekwondo and Krav Maga programs!

Offer Valid Through May 15th

Training Hard for the Respectable Work Ethic

The old adage that “hard work never killed anybody” remains a fact today. Just like seeds need to be planted early in order to enjoy a timely harvest, children need to be taught the value of hard work very early on in life. Children today are constantly exposed to messages about doing things the easy way. Everything around them is nothing but a “get rich quick scheme.” With these sorts of ideas common in society, it has become more necessary than ever to introduce the benefits of hard work to the next generation.

Simple steps to make your kids work

  • It cannot be stressed enough that model behavior is one of the most effective methods for good child development. If you want your children to work hard, you need to show them how to work hard. Don’t whine and complain about your job when your children are around. Instead, tell them why you work hard and what benefits you get in return. Give them examples from your work life that show the benefits of hard work. Tell them how and why you got that extra bonus in your paycheck.
  • Stop complimenting your children for their inherent talents. Applauding them too often can make your children complacent and reluctant to give 100% in their tasks. If they perceive that your praise and appreciation is easy to get, they’ll stop challenging themselves. Praise them for their effort and not just their talent.
  • Teach your children to do their chores. Holding them to their responsibilities will prepare them to accept bigger ones in their adult life.
  • Teach them to learn from their failures and to never give up. Tell them that failures are just minor setbacks that force us to learn and try a different approach to stay on track toward our goals.

Teaching work ethics through karate

Karate is one of the most challenging, fun, and beneficial activities for children. The very philosophy of karate revolves around the concepts of discipline, goal setting, and most importantly, hard work. Karate is a complex art form that takes dedication and sincerity to master. Curricula for each rank and belt level help develop skills and physical and mental health incrementally. In karate, your children will learn to dedicate themselves to achieving their goals through hard work. As your child tries to successfully climb the ranks, he or she will learn to appreciate the values of hard work, focus, and perseverance. Karate will help your child adopt life-changing skills and qualities that they’ve never experienced before.
