Children (6-12 Years Old)
Lansing Martial Arts Builds Young Minds and Bodies.
Children love learning at Shinn's Taekwondo in Lansing, MI. Our kids martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive.
The overarching goal of the Okemos Martial Arts school is to build our students' self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our students' accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.
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 Lansing Martial Arts, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.
Our Martial Arts Okemos program emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.
Traits That Martial Arts Develops in a Child
Strong work ethic
Life Lessons Developed Through Martial Arts Okemos Classes at Okemos Martial Arts end with group discussions and role-playing exercises. 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:
* Avoiding conflicts
* Dealing with bullies
* Mental self defense
* Proper respect for adults
* Stranger awareness
* Respect for self and others
* Saying no to drugs and peer pressure
These valuable life lessons help our martial arts Lansing students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age and beyond.
