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

Improve Your Child’s Self-Confidence with Karate

Karate is an ancient Japanese martial arts form that became popular worldwide during the 1960s, and today for the vast majority of non-martial artists, “karate” is synonymous with “martial arts.” It continues to be a popular discipline across the globe, especially among children and adolescents. Unlike some styles, karate is easy to teach and learn in segments that are age and fitness level appropriate. It’s also a powerful way to guide your kids into becoming confident, caring, and capable individuals.

Karate to boost self-confidence

Self-confidence is the ability to trust yourself and your abilities. For that, you need to first know what you are capable of physically, mentally, and emotionally. To know this, it is essential that you push your limits on a regular basis to see how much you can take. Pushing yourself just a little bit more each workout is the key to extending and expanding your capabilities over time. Since karate and some related martial art forms are essentially about self-improvement of mind, body, and spirit, training is a natural, reliable, and enjoyable way to gain self-confidence.

You can train your kids to practice pushing their limits from a young age, so they learn to give their best in every life situation. Get them started young, in their pre-school years if possible, to reap maximum benefits of karate. These early, formative years are important times for developing bodies and minds. Parents appreciate the physical fitness, good manners, and new friendships formed by their children being in karate.

Karate involves progression from one level to the next, each level corresponding to various
belt colors going from white to black. Each successive rank includes a number of simple and complex moves that must be learned and properly performed, with tests to be passed, to be graduated in rank and belt color. Classes also include free sparring in protective safety gear with peers and seniors to develop students’ self-defense skills.

Karate classes can help children know themselves better and build their self-confidence in many ways.

  • Passing a skill test gives a sense of accomplishment.
  • Sparring develops and tests strategy, speed, agility, and endurance.
  • Praise and positive feedback – and continual progress in the martial arts skills, visible in
    each student’s moves and techniques over time – are motivating results!
  • Getting to the next level and belt color can be a major milestone.
  • It can be a major tool against bullying, helping your kids defend themselves and be safe.

Knowing themselves and improving their abilities give your children the priceless gifts of self- confidence and self-reliance. They learn to have positive attitudes, goals, patience, and other virtues that are especially helpful when trying new things, dealing with problems and setbacks, and facing life’s challenges head-on.


Other benefits of learning karate

The fun practice of karate offers even more benefits to both children and adults who participate regularly. It can teach them many skills and instill leadership traits, in addition to improving their self-confidence.

  • Discipline
  • Physical fitness
  • Social skills
  • Respect
  • Listening
  • Self-esteem

Giving kids the opportunity to learn karate, or any martial arts form, might be the most formative, beneficial, and enduring gift you can give your child besides your love and care. Training, learning, winning, losing, and trying again through the interesting and motivating practice of karate will help them develop good habits and self-confidence. This often results in young people becoming positive, strong, responsible, and confident adults who are ready to take on life as leaders.
