Tim is an excellent instructor! He is truly passionate with his profession and even more so about his students. He keeps his class sizes small so he is best able to provide the detailed instructions to help your child engaged and informed.

He also does an excellent job working with adults. I took part in his class and was very impressed with his ability to work with beginners like myself and really make them feel comfortable and confident!

There are many life skills that Tim teaches his students. On top of that it is an excellent way to stay in shape and be fit.

I would highly recommend to anyone interested in a fun way to work out as well as any one with children looking for a great activity to get them involved with.

Keep up the great work Tim Flynn.

Inviting, welcoming environment. Tim is AMAZING with both kids and adults - he is a natural teacher - and it shows. The class sizes are small - which is so helpful for young learners - it was easy for our son and daughter to pay attention and they were not waiting in line for stations. Tim is respectful and professional and at the same time relates very well with kids. Would recommend Kato Karate to anybody interested!

Does your 5 or 6-year-old need to learn self-discipline and emotional control?

The Basic SKILLZ program teaches young kids to be focused and to manage emotional outbursts in a fun, educational setting.

At times, it can be easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5 and 6-year-old kids. They’re better at following instructions and paying attention than younger kids, but they still may need some help in controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.

DOES YOUR 5-6 YEAR OLD

NEED HELP IN THESE AREAS?

They have trouble focusing and don’t look at you when you speak to them.

They get angry easily and small things may cause them to lose control.

They lack the discipline to follow through on tasks without being reminded.

PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT

LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…

Kids that are 5-6 years old have slightly more control than younger kids, but they still have a lot to learn when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions. They’re intellectually curious, but they need to learn in a disciplined setting.

Our program gives kids the tools they need to succeed later in life. They learn the importance of self-discipline and control while building on the basic martial arts skills they learned in the Early SKILLZ program.

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

Basic SKILLZ teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts moves.

PHYSICAL FITNESS AND BALANCE

When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they’re in motion.

The basic martial arts skills taught in the Skillz program help them build muscle and improve their coordination.

COMPLEX MEMORY SKILLS

At this age, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also be unable to tell their left from their right.

Our program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and to know how to follow left and right commands without hesitation.

STAY IN CONTROL EVEN WHEN THEY EXPERIENCE STRONG EMOTIONS

Five and six-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they’re excited – and to shut down when they’re sad or scared.

In our Basic SKILLZ program, they are taught to maintain control even when they are excited – and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP

Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don’t handle losing very well.

In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.

Tim is a great instructor, he works well with my kids and have taught them a lot! My daughter and son really enjoy going to karate each week! They have learned a lot! Thank you Master Flynn!

How do SKILLZ classes help kids in school?

SKILLZ training puts kids in the learning zone, where their defenses are down, and their minds are open. By learning the self-control and discipline they need, they’ll get to a place where they can focus on school and feel confident that they can meet every challenge.

Will SKILLZ training help my child set achievable goals?

Yes! The SKILLZ curriculum is designed to meet kids where they are, giving them both short-term and long-term goals. They’ll learn that mastering new skills can help them build toward their dreams.
