Mom & Dad,
Let's face it, it can be a bit overwhelming thinking about your child getting older so quickly. As much as you want to think they are prepared for school, every parent has the same questions. Are they ready to socialize with their new classmates? Will they stay focused on the teacher during class and keep up with the other kids?

Social interaction teaches kids how to effectively work as part of a team.
Judo helps improve coordination and is an excellent form of exercise.
Building healthy habits early on can help prevent obesity and diabetes later in life.
Belt testing provides an excellent exercise for kids in learning how to set and achieve goals. Their self-esteem will continue to rise with each accomplishment as they watch their hard work pay off.
Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD.
The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades, while improving their listening skills at home and in school.

Children are required to compete but adults are not. For children, competition is a huge part of a child’s character development, which is why we require children to compete. It’s also a requirement for rank promotion. In general, students who compete advance more quickly than students who don’t compete.
Yes and no. Girls and boys will train together and compete against each other within the confines of our class but are usually not allowed to compete against boys in sanctioned tournaments. However, in many informal events, girls with parent or coach approval may compete against boys.
