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!

Is Your 10-14-Year-Old Ready for a Challenge?

The Extreme SKILLZ program helps kids maximize their physical and intellectual capabilities in a stable and nurturing environment.

Kids between the ages of 10 and 14 are capable of great things – but they need the right tools and encouragement to accomplish them. It’s normal for kids at this age to be tempted by taking the easy way out of challenges, but we work with them to help them reach their full physical and intellectual potential.

DOES YOUR 10 TO 14-YEAR OLD

STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?

They always seem to take the easy way out when presented with anything difficult.

They make poor choices and tend not to think things through.

They put their friends and social obligations ahead of their family.

PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT

LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…

Parenting kids in their pre-teen and early teenage years is its own special challenge. Kids at this age have huge potential, but an equally huge tendency to get mired down in laziness and posturing for their friends. It can be frustrating for parents to watch their kids waste their abilities – and parents are often anxious for a way to get their kids moving in a positive direction. When kids resist parental involvement and give their friends more consideration than their families, it can be distressing for parents.

The key to getting through to kids at this age is to hold their feet to the fire when it comes to putting in the necessary work to achieve their goals. They need firm instruction and regular goals to keep them on track.

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

Our Extreme SKILLZ program is specifically designed to help kids between the ages of 10 and 14 to achieve their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social goals. We teach kids physical dexterity, versatility, and precision while also helping them to trust their instincts and build their strength.

DILLIGENCE WITH CHALLENGES

Kids learn the importance of doing things well.

At this age, kids may be prone to take the easy way out of challenges.

Our Extreme SKILLZ program teaches them to value precision and to pay attention to details instead of settling for a sloppy solution to their problems.

BETTER DECISION MAKING

We give kids the tools to make smart decisions

Preteens and teens sometimes make poor decisions because they lack the judgment to see the big picture.

Extreme SKILLZ classes teach kids to make smarter decisions by showing them the dangers of jumping to conclusions.

UNDERSTANDING EMOTIONS

Students learn to evaluate their motives and pay attention to their emotions

Kids sometimes react without thinking about their motivations.

In the Extreme SKILLZ program, students learn to understand their true emotional motivation and to understand the difference between a good motivation and a bad one.

SELF BELIEF & CONFIDENCE

We teach kids not to worry what others think of them.

Peer pressure plays a big role as kids get older, and they sometimes struggle with worrying about what others think.

We teach kids to care less about what other people think of them and more about what they think of themselves.

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?
