HELP IN ONE OF THESE AREAS?
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE & PATIENCE
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
LEARN THE VALUE OF RESPECTING THEMSELVES & OTHERS
Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to respect all authority figures.
In our martial arts school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.
Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.
JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS
Whether they’re in a martial arts class or in a competition, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.
Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.
They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make judgments.
GET YOUR KIDS OFF THE COUCH AND INTO MARTIAL ARTS
It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.
The electronics epidemic might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.
Martial arts classes provide teens with challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.
The study of martial arts requires them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.
Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.
We could not ask for a better Martial Arts school for our 6 year old daughter! Over the past year, she has learned to focus better, support her fellow students, and work hard toward her goals. We are so proud of her achievements in taekwondo, but more importantly, she has learned to take pride in her own hard work. The instructors are incredibly patient and gentle with the kids, while holding them to a very high standard. The school offers a wonderful community of students and teachers, with many parents and children taking classes there together as a family. Master Hahn has a terrific team, and this school is an absolute NYC gem!
My kids LOVE master Hahn and his team. They are extremely friendly and have taught my son and daughter discipline and focus while having a lot of fun. If you are looking for a great after school activity, IMAC is a great option.
Great place to learn taekwondo. It's in a convenient location and the atmosphere is welcoming. The instructors are great for adults and kids alike. The people here truly make the experience and help build a sense of community. This dojang is dedicated to teaching traditional taekwondo but in a super fun way.
Our daughter has been a student at Martial Arts Center for two years. We love the school. It is welcoming and she has learned so much. The instructors are wonderful and there is a high teacher student ratio. Taekwondo is very worthwhile for children in today’s world that is full of distractions. The school doesn’t just focus on the physical aspect of taekwondo but also the mental. They really try to model and explain the 5 tenets (self-control, integrity, perseverance, courtesy and indomitable spirit) of taekwondo for the students. This is one of the best sports for children and this is a great school.
My daughter is on the autism spectrum...our experience with any kind of class has always been very hit or miss (as I’m sure a lot of special needs parents can relate to)...Master Hahn and Samson are INCREDIBLE with her. I literally am stunned at her level of focus and excitement about this training. The teachers somehow intuitively know how to work with her...I can’t really express my gratitude and relief and excitement to have found International Martial Arts Center. It has really changed our lives. She told me she feels “tranquil” after class...anyone with a child with anxiety or attention issues will know what a miracle of a statement this is!!
