My son has done 5 classes so far and is loving every second of them. He has adhd and the instructors knew it going in, they've all been very nice and very patient with my son, making sure he understands what is expected of him. I fully trust that he will learn a lot from his experience here.

Amazing place! The instructors and even the other students are great. The facility is super nice, clean and really big. Can't say enough good things. No matter your age, fitness level or goals, it's a fantastic place to learn Brazilian jiu Jitsu, striking arts, self defense, and most importantly make new friends.

My wife Mary and I have been doing the Fitness Kick-Boxing at Tai-Kai for 5 years now! And we both love it, it has put me in the best shape of my life and I am 73 years young because of it! Pat yourself on the back Ken, your school is worth it! Sheena and Mike Bidwell Fitness Kick-Boxing classes are without a doubt the best! What is neat about them is they teach us the proper technique. This is very important, becasue if you learn how to do it right your workout improves ten fold.

I’ve trained all over the world and Tai Kai is one of the best places I’ve trained, hands down. The facility is spectacular, they have a bunch of really great teachers and the student body is fun and welcoming. I love this place!

Tai Kai is so much more than a place to work out and get in shape. Sure, Tai Kai offers excellent Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and other classes... and it’s filled with so many knowledgeable teachers and instructors. But more than that, it’s a family, a home, a place to find encouragement and a place to find acceptance. I’m so happy to have found this place, trying my first class was the best decision I’ve ever made.

My kids started training jiu jitsu here earlier this year, and after watching them train and peeking in at the adult jiu jitsu classes, I decided to try it out, too. Best decision I ever made! The instructors are phenomenal in both the kids’ and adult classes, and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. I’ve met several incredible people while training here and love coming in to learn and get in better shape. If anyone is intimidated by jiu jitsu (or really, any of the other martial arts classes offered at Tai Kai) this place will set you at ease with a comfortable environment and training partners who are supportive and want you to do your best!

Discipline, Children and Martial Arts Training

 

Martial arts classes can do a lot for your child. Children who study martial arts learn key skills that will help them throughout their lives. One of the most important things they learn is discipline.

Discipline is a skill that can help kids face challenges that arise at any stage of life. Martial arts teaches that discipline is the key to success in any endeavor. Here’s what you need to know about discipline, your child, and the martial arts.

How Do Martial Arts Classes Teach Discipline?

Let’s start with the basics. In any martial arts class, discipline is essential. To master any movement, a student must have enough discipline to heed their teacher’s instructions, copy their movements, and repeat the movement until they have mastered it.

Without focus and discipline, earning a new belt would be impossible. A martial arts class is a group setting but children are tested on their individual progress. It requires discipline to control behavior, emotions, and movements.

The topic of discipline is one that might not be enticing to most kids, but the benefit of learning about it in our classes is that they get to apply discipline to something they want to do.

The Benefits of Discipline for Your Child

Young kids often struggle with self-control. They may not move with confidence or respect the people around them. Such behavior is normal in early childhood development and it illustrates the need for training and support. As they learn the five tenets of martial arts, they will learn the importance of self-control, self-discipline, and mutual respect.

Let’s look at the ways that learning discipline in our martial arts classes can help your child.

  • When your child goes to school, discipline is what will help them pay attention in class, ignore distractions, and get their school assignments done on time. 
  • Within your family, discipline is what will allow your child to fulfill their household obligations, get chores done on time, and be a good family citizen.
  • As discipline increases, so do self-confidence and respect. To behave with discipline is to behave with dignity and treat others with courtesy – and that means your child will be welcome wherever they go.
  • In school and beyond, discipline is something that will help your child achieve their short-term and long-term goals. Whether their goal is to graduate at the top of their class, get into a top college, excel at a trade, or compete in sports, a disciplined child is far more likely to succeed than a child who never learned discipline. 
  • Discipline is the key to self-improvement. As your child prepares for belt testing, they’ll be learning the benefits of discipline and perseverance, both of which can help them attain their goals in life.

Your child’s instructor will begin teaching your child about discipline from the moment they step into their first martial arts class. We find that the kids in our martial arts programs look up to their instructors — and one reason they do is they can see for themselves the way that discipline can help them on their journey.

Whether your child chooses to continue martial arts training into adulthood or not, learning self-control and self-discipline as a child will help them at every stage of life. We believe that martial arts instruction teaches kids to be good students, good citizens, and good people. Discipline plays an important role in those lessons.
