Most parents do everything they can to teach these things to their children but After School many parents need some help. The 2-4 hours that kids spend after school before their parents get home are some of the most important hours in a child’s life.
Let’s look at this example:
The average child spends 3-4 hours somewhere after school before their parents come home. A child that goes from 1st to 7th grade spends about 200 days in school out of the year, This doesn’t even include the 8 hours a day for 2-3 months during the summer.
Some go to babysitters. Some go home and play with their friends doing whatever they want. A lot just sit in front of the television. Others get into serious trouble. Not our students. Let’s put this into perspective…Between the 1st and 7th grade a child spends an average of 4200 hours doing basically nothing productive. This time is more valuable than you know. In 4200 hours you could graduate from college, get your Masters Degree and your Ph.D. So why wouldn’t you let your child spend this valuable time learning skills that will last a lifetime?
When our kids get out of school, their parents know that their child is being trained in real Life Skills. With our busy 21st Century schedules, it’s hard to find the time and resources to really help them with these important life skills. You would think and expect that they would learn about perseverance, positive mental attitudes, self discipline and goal setting in school, but they really don’t. Students who attend the Crazy 88 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes are a step up on others because we teach them about these important life skills and how to develop them to their fullest! Success traits that will pay off for the rest of their lives.
Our program can and WILL help your child increase their confidence, self-esteem, discipline, while teaching them life skills that will last them a lifetime. (Let me explain why you MUST come see our program for yourself. It will be the best thing that you’ll ever do for your child.)
In our time-proven program, your child will be able to progress at their very own pace. We understand that everyone learns differently. No matter if your child can only train once a week or everyday we have the program that will fit your needs.
How can one activity have such an impact on my child?
In our program, we don’t believe in just teaching children to punch and kick. We work to help build your child’s character. During classes, you’ll see your child’s energy, confidence, and spirit rise while he or she becomes strong and confident. We’re not just talking about physical strength–but the kind of strength it takes to resist peer pressure and other negative aspects of life. Our Mixed Martial Arts Program will arm your child with a host of positive mental and physical skills that will help him in school, at home and in life The result? Your child will learn to succeed! You’ll see a new kind of discipline emerging . . . the kind that will positively affect all areas of his or her life. You’ll notice an increased respect for others, and most importantly, for herself. A powerful mind/body connection that makes them unstoppable in life! It’s incredible, but true.
Its simply a matter of good, better, best. Successful Karate and Traditional Martial Arts program are mostly KIDS programs – why? Isn’t self-defense a valuable skill for adults to have as well – OF COURSE! But adults generally do not train at the same gyms as their children. This is because in their heart, they know that the self-defense combat aspect of what is taught at the traditional martial arts school is not the most effective. This becomes an issue as the child gets older and doing “karate” becomes uncool. They throw away all the great lessons about discipline, confidence, self-control with the ineffective fighting techniques they were taught. This is a tragedy. At Crazy 88, we provide the best of both worlds. Your child gets all the benefits of the traditional martial arts program – the character development, the self-confidence, the self-discipline – AND all the benefits of our Mixed Martial Arts curriculum – the realistic martial arts training based on the fundamentals of the most effective fighting systems available – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Wrestling, Boxing, and Judo.
A recent scientific study on daycare concluded that Children who spend 30 hours per week “in day care are more likely to exhibit problematic social behaviors including aggression, conflict, poorer work habits and risk-taking behaviors throughout childhood and into adolescence.” Unfortunately, the daycare system is often just a glorified babysitting class. The day-care child goes from one caretaker to the other having his basic needs (i.e. food and shelter) taken care of. They are exposed to a variety of negative influences without an adult influence to filter out the good from the bad. The opportunities they are missing are also painful. Imagine the advantage that the child who is in a positive learning environment for hours a day has over the daycare child who just gets some food and housing. It is truly a headstart on life.
