Karate has been so good for my 6 year old. It teaches him self control and focus, two things he needs desperately! Sensei Jeff is so patient and kind with all the kids, I am so very thankful for him!!!

Jeff and I have trained together in traditional Goju Ryu karate since we were kids. His karate training along with military experience, make him a well rounded instructor offering traditional martial arts and practical applications.

I highly recommend this martial arts school. My son has only been a student here for a couple of months and his confidence is already improving. The instructors are great and very patient. This program is also much more affordable than others like it.

If you want to train like a super-saiyan, go here. I love the transformation of Improved self esteem, confidence and passion for life that I see in the students. Anshin Kai is meant to breathe life into your goals and help you excel in various ways. This dojo is like one big family and the camaraderie is warm and welcoming. Once you get started, you'll be hooked.

I LOVE the fitness and fighting class! It gets me going in the morning even before the kids wake up. I get a kick butt workout. I get some me time. And I have learned a lot about fitness and self defense. The class is appropriate for all ability levels. I've gotten much stronger since I started about 2 months ago. Best workout class ever!

My husband and I couldn't ask for a better place to take our son. He's a little shy when it comes to new things, but he warmed up really well to the experience and the staff. Sensei Jeff is very fun and patient with all the student, yet demands respect and attention when needed to get the job done. We are very excited to continue this journey with Anshin Kai Martial Arts for a very long time. Thanks!

Martial Arts Your New Family Activity

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts
If you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and vice versa. There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying the martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television. The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even though you and your kids will be in separate classes, we think martial arts still qualifies as a group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals. In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control, courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life. Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

A good martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feelgood hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling. Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their fist. You won’t have to worry about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!
Conclusion Studying martial arts as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
