The three most common things Martial Arts will help parents with are:
Children that are afraid or hesitate to do things that are new or difficult. It usually has to do with fear and/or lack of confidence.
Children that do not have the courage or skills to stop it. Nothing crushes a child's confidence and spirit faster than bullying!
(Many children are bullied in school or in their neighborhood, and parents often never know!)
Often referred to as "high energy" boys and girls. Everything from the mild inability to listen and focus to the more severe cases of ADD, ADHD, Autism etc.
(We have helped many parents keep their children off medication!)
How can karate do all of this?!
Look at it this way.
Your child’s first and biggest challenge comes not from fighting for rights on the street, or beating up the neighborhood bully.
It comes, instead, from battling more sinister forces.
Your child’s own fears and self-doubts!
“I’m not as smart (or strong, or fast) as him.”
“I’m just not good at math."
“I wish I was as pretty and popular as her.”
“Why do they keep picking on me?”
well here is the secret...
Martial Arts is less about your child learning to face others, and more about facing themselves -their innermost fears and self-doubts.
Conquer them, and your child unleashes within themselves a powerful, unstoppable force.
A force that gives them the strength to kick down the doors of their own self-doubts; a force that opens your child to the life changing power of values, principles, character, and the ability to reach this full potential.

character Traits that karate develops in a child
Strong work ethic
Learning martial arts is a physical endeavor involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness, but our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques.
At Tenchi Karate, we use karate as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.
Our emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self-discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.
Life Lessons Developed
Each martial arts class at Tenchi Family Karate ends with group discussions.
We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today.
Children pay close attention as we explore topics that include:
Respect for self and others
Dealing with bullies
Mental self defense
Proper respect for adults
Saying no to peer pressure
