I’m Oscar Olivares, Owner / Head Instructor here at MMA UNDERGROUND.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect.
They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
1. They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
2. They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
3. They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
Children who are bullied often suffer from low self-esteem, fear, and poor school performance. Their lives revolve around the actions of bullies.
Bullies focus on kids who seem fearful or vulnerable, but martial arts teaches kids to be confident and self-assured.
Martial arts build mental, emotional, and physical strength – and by teaching self-respect, it helps children believe in themselves, which makes them poor targets for bullies.
Children bully other children out of a lack of self-respect and confidence. They seek target they perceive to be weaker than themselves to boost their sense of self-worth.
With its strong emphasis on teaching discipline and respect, martial arts instructions can help bullies see the error of their ways.
The atmosphere in our school teaches kids that there can be no self-respect without respect for others. We don’t tolerate bullying and we teach kids that the way they treat others reflects on them both here – and at school.
One word, NO. It seems counterintuitive, but actually kids often become less violent as a result of marital arts training. It’s a method of channeling and relieving aggression, while at the same time increasing respect and care for others.
While we teach kids to be more tough and confident, it’s all in the name of self-defense and as a last resort – not as a weapon to attack. By learning self-defense they gain a better understanding of themselves and those around them, which actually promotes more peace for all.
Yes. Kids who bully other children often do so out of fear or a feeling of inadequacy. With martial arts instruction, they learn to respect themselves and others, and to have the confidence to resolve problems without aggression.
Yes. Many children who are fearful feel less so after studying martial arts. They have confidence in their ability to defend themselves if they need to and that helps conquer fear.
No. Martial arts training does not teach aggression. It teaches control, self-respect, and respect for others. It teaches children to channel their aggression into positive things.
WE ARE JUST COOL
