I know my child will have fun, but he has quit other activity before. How can we keep him from quitting?
The key to a child’s success in any activity is consistency, progress and parents. What we have found children don’t quit martial arts training, parents do! As long as a parent makes and keeps the commitment of making sure their child attends class twice per week, children will learn and excel in their training. Kids that training consistently, continue to progress in the martial arts and should no problem reaching the life changing goal of Black Belt.

What are the chances that my child could get hurt doing martial arts?

We use padded safety gear, abide by strict safety rules and regulation for instructors and students, use padded safety weapons, and even a high tech padded floors, all for the safety of our students.
Will martial arts training make my child aggressive to others?
NO WAY! As a matter of fact, we are careful to teach our students to use common sense before self defense. Kids are taught this from the first day of classes, to make smart decisions when it comes to self defense. They will know when it is the right time to use what we teach them.
My child has never been good at sports, can he do this?
Every child has what it take to be good at martial arts because in martial arts they are not competing or comparing themselves with anyone. Martial arts are more than just punching and kicking. Character development training is just as important as punching and kicking. We are building Black Belt from the inside out. Once we develop a child’s confidence, they truly can then achieve anything they set their minds to.

Martial Arts is great exercise for kids. Martial arts training combined with a sensible diet can transform a child’s physic and overall health. And kids that feel good about themselves are children that develop strong confidence and self esteem, which will carry over in all aspect of their life in the future. Just listen what this parent recently had to say…
Children will begin by keeping their eyes focus on the eyes of people speaking to them. They will begin paying more attention to their teachers and for longer periods of time, therefore hearing and learning more. Focus is like a muscle, the more you use it, the better and stronger it gets. With martial arts training at 5 Star we train children muscles and mind.
A confidence child is a happy child. They no longer live in anxiety or fear. Confidence is the first step to get a child to succeed at all areas of life. Once confidence is developed, the instructors at our studio can now begin getting a child to perform at a level that was once unthought of for them.
Getting a child to do what they are told can be challenging enough, and our program will develop respectful disciplined kids, but more important is getting a child to do what they are not told. Develop self discipline is children where they have the knowledge to know what they should do, and they do it! This trait will be invaluable as they grow into successful teens and adults.
