Building champions in life & in the Dojo

11-14 year old boys and girls

 

The New Generation Karate Teen Program is designed to promote the energy of the kids and the focus of the adults.  Adolescence can be a tough time for the children of today.  They are constantly faced with peer pressure to become involved in drugs, alcohol, violence, gangs, and worse.  It is important to keep adolescents surrounded by as many positive influences as possible.  At New Generation Karate all students train to develop the qualities and habits of healthy, successful members of society.

 

The Teen curriculum is designed to help students achieve great levels of confidence, self-esteem, self control, self discipline, and indomitable spirit.  Classes focus on the connection of martial arts skills to life skills so that students can learn to defend themselves, non-violently, through confidence, self discipline, and respect for themselves and others.  The martial artist’s code teaches students to set and achieve goals, to strive for Black Belt Excellence in all that they do, and to lead by example.

 

Effective Self Defense

As a NGK student your child will learn awareness skills that will help them to avoid potentially dangerous situations.  They will learn verbal and non-verbal boundary setting skills that will get them out of these situations.  And they’ll learn simple yet effective self-defense skills that could save their life.

 

Total Fitness

Every class at New Generation Karate will have your children sweating and smiling.  Our students learn about the Three Rules of a Champion.  (Eat Right, Sleep Right, Train Right.)  Classes focus on improving fundamental athletic skills like balance, coordination, flexibility, agility, and proper nutrition.  All classes are structured to increase muscular development, cardiovascular conditioning, and flexibility.  Students of all sizes and shapes find our curriculum to be challenging but not impossible, but most of all they find it to be FUN.  When adolescents develop better overall fitness, they really start believing in themselves.  Their newfound self-confidence and self-esteem, gives them a much more positive outlook on life.

 

Life Skills

The part that parents seem to like best is how our students learn the Life Skills of the martial arts.  At New Generation Karate, our students learn that self-discipline is the driving force behind accomplishment and success.  Our students’ motto is “I will never give up!”  In school, at work, in the gym, at home, on the field, and in the office; our student’s learn that ambition, dedication, and perseverance are the keys to overcoming life’s challenges and achieving its greatest rewards.  The power to succeed is inside each and every one of us.  The martial arts teach you to harness, focus, and channel your inner power.  It is this power that can take an ordinary person to extraordinary levels of health, happiness and success.
