HOW CAN WE HELP YOUR TEEN?
They need a fun and productive way to improve their physical and mental health.
They could benefit from learning how to manage their emotions in difficult situations.
They want to increase discipline to prepare for college or full-time work.
Teenagers Need the Right Guidance as They Move into Adulthood
You want the best for your teenager and as they prepare for the adult world, you recognize that it’s most important to give them the tools and guidance they need to figure things out for themselves. With increasing maturity comes increasing responsibility – and your teen can manage it all with a little help. But where can they get it?
Teen martial arts training helps teenagers get to know themselves and their capabilities. The lessons they learn on the mat will stay with them for the rest of their lives – at home, at school, and on the job.
Your Teen Will Grow Every Time They Step on the Mat!
Martial arts training gives teens everything they need to grow into adulthood with grace and clarity. Every time your teen steps on the mat, they’ll learn how to move through life with self-respect and persistence. By treating themselves and others with dignity, they’ll discover the benefits of discipline and how it can help them to achieve their goals.
Build Self-Respect and Self-Worth
Self-respect is the cornerstone of success and teens can sometimes struggle with self-esteem, judging themselves harshly.
In the world of martial arts, respect is a cornerstone value. Every teen is treated with respect by instructors and fellow students alike.
Best of all, teens learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them too – and they’ll be respected wherever they go.
Learn Good Judgment and How to Use It
In life, the best outcome is often determined by the decision-making process and learning what good judgment is and how to use it.
In martial arts classes, students learn how to make judgments in the moment using the information they have available in conjunction with their training.
At the same time, they learn how to evaluate decisions and the elements of healthy decision-making, internalizing the ability to identify good judgment and use it in their lives.
Build a Healthy Body for a Healthy Life
Today’s teens are digital natives and may not have enough opportunities to move their bodies and keep themselves healthy and fit.
We all need our share of physical activity and exercise to lead healthy lives, and teenagers are no exception.
Our martial arts classes provide teens with the activity they need in a fun and social setting that builds overall fitness and tones their bodies.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Your teen doesn’t need to know exactly what they want from life, but they do need to know how to set realistic goals and work toward them.
One of the biggest benefits of martial arts training for teens is that in class, teens pursue goals constantly. Each skill they master – and each belt they earn – represents a goal they’ve achieved.
By making goal-setting a practice, martial arts training prepares teens for life, giving them the tools they need to identify, set, and achieve their goals – whatever they are.
Very dedicated instructors!
Mr. and Mrs. K are both amazing! My son loves coming here, and looks forward to each class.
The instructors are amazing! My son has learned so much in the short time he’s been involved with the program. Highly recommended for all kids and adults!
Mr. K (Farzad) is an amazing instructor who makes you feel comfortable and relaxed with his warm smile while kicking butt! I have taken a self defense course with him as well as fitness classes and I can tell you that he is an amazing teacher.
All my friends know that I hate exercise. I believed that if you never exercised, your body would never need to store fat :-D. But Mr. K would encourage me to try out his classes. So, I took up the challenge and his regimen resulted in the fittest me that I had ever known. I was eating better, feeling energized and I was experiencing endorphins in a way that I had never known. I HIGHLY recommend Journey Martial Arts! Go on, get off your backside! It is worth it 🙂
Love this place. The classes here are great for kids and adults. I’ve seen a positive change in myself, physically and mentally, and that’s been the best part for me. I highly recommend Journey.
I’ve been working out with Mr. K since the day Journey opened up – currently 3 mornings a week before work. I wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that that hour with him is often the highlight of my day. I look forward to it…often jumping out of bed in anticipation of it. And just to be clear – I’m currently 49 and only started working out 4 years ago, so it’s not like I’ve been some maniacal workout fiend all my life. Mr. K makes it that much fun and makes you feel that good about what you’ve done for yourself…all without being pushy or overly aggressive. He does a phenomenal job varying the exercises so it’s never boring, and constructing them so that each person is able to push themselves to the extent they are able/want to.
I’m in better shape at 49 than I was at 29 and it doesn’t feel like a hardship at all. I highly recommend Journey Martial Arts/Mr K for anyone who is looking to improve their overall level of fitness via a friendly, personable environment where everyone is just looking to better themselves with no other pretenses.
Mr K. and the whole Journey team have been a key part of our son’s life for three + years. In addition to the martial arts skills he’s now mastered, they have helped teach our child about self-sufficiency, respect, integrity, hard work, failure, grit, and other key life lessons, They adapted to the challenges of Covid with creativity and flexibility and offered families like us a welcome bit of continuity in otherwise chaotic times. Their dedication to instilling kids with confidence and self respect is admirable. No matter how far our son makes it along his own training journey, we know his time with Mr. K and the great teachers at JMA will have been integral to his long term success. We consider them part of our family’s team.
