IMG_0822At first you might think that our back-to-school specials are just another way for us to draw attention to our martial arts classes. After all, it makes sense for department stores to have back-to-school prices for clothes, and big box stores to have deals on pencils, glue, paint, and markers. But a martial arts school?

Here’s why we’re doing it, and why it makes perfect sense.

It’s a Time of Change

The beginning of school is a time of change, when summer activities have ended and new activities are beginning. That means it’s a great time to get started with a new activity that will give kids excellent exercise, especially when they’re suddenly spending too much time inside the walls of a school or at the dinner table doing homework.

A New Environment

Whether they’re moving from elementary school to middle school or middle school to high school, kids in transition need confidence. They’re joining a new school, meeting new people, and bumping into different problems than they have before. Martial arts classes can give them the centering and discipline that can help them better adjust to their new surroundings.

Self-Defense For Difficult Situations

Whether dealing with bullies at grade school or fighting off attackers on a college campus, self-defense classes are a great way to take control of a situation. It’s important for students to be able to defend themselves, whether that means removing themselves from conflict or stopping the attacker in their tracks.

No matter the reason, martial arts classes are a great way to get excellent exercise during the school year. Learn more about our back-to-school specials right here!
