DOES YOUR CHILD
They tattle on others without accepting responsibility for their own actions.
They have a hard time coping with losses and setbacks and may not demonstrate good sportsmanship.
They don’t remember what you or their teachers tell them and struggle with paying attention.
PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
Kids between the ages of seven and nine have done a lot of maturing, but that doesn’t mean that your job as a parent is any easier than it was before – it’s just different. Your child might have attained some degree of emotional control but still have a hard time reacting appropriately when disappointed or upset. Likewise, they might not be willing to accept blame when they do something wrong, and yet be very quick to point the finger at others and tattle.
Since kids this age tend to be intellectually very curious, it’s important to engage them on their level and provide them with continual challenges to keep them interested in what they’re doing. Martial arts instruction is ideal because of its structure of ongoing learning and measurable achievements.
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Our Core SKILLZ program works with kids to teach them how to accept responsibility for their actions, to manage negative emotions, and to pay attention to instructions and advice from their instructors. Our program teaches kids agility, courage, flexibility, and persistence in a way that allows them to build confidence. These skills translate from our martial arts studio to school – and to your home.
BUILD FINE MOTOR SKILLS
Older kids have better control than young ones, but they still may struggle with precision and accuracy.
The Core SKILLZ program builds on earlier martial arts training to help kids gain control of their bodies and build strength while improving their balance.
Kids are easily distracted and may have difficult focusing on tasks and situations.
We teach kids to tune out distractions and focus on one thing at a time – something that’s increasingly challenging in today’s electronic world.
PERSISTANCE & DETERMINATION
Kids develop persistence and the determination to see their goals through to the end.
When they’re learning a new skill, kids may be afraid or give up easily instead of risking failure.
Core SKILLZ students learn to conquer their fears and persist even when they feel like giving up on a particular challenge or assignment.
RESPECT & SELF CONTROL
Students learn how to disagree politely and to resolve disputes respectfully.
Many kids struggle with learning how to express disagreement without being rude or angry.
Our Core SKILLZ program teaches kids to speak up without disrupting others, and to figure out ways to resolve their challenges within the confines of the program’s structure.
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!
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.
KK is an excellent place for All ages to be. Such a Great Family Feel!
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!
