At Kaizen, we believe that the benefits of martial arts reach far beyond the physical. While we value physical fitness, balance, and technique, of far greater importance are the mental, emotional, and social benefits of a disciplined training program. We integrate character education into our training, emphasizing our themes of quality habits, excellent manners, positive attitude and outstanding self-control in every class. Our goal is to reinforce the values that you seek to instill in your children, enabling them to become quality citizens portraying the Black Belt character traits of Respect, Responsibility, Citizenship, Perseverance, Self–control, and Integrity.
Our goal is to provide a full curriculum that helps develop your child socially and cognitively as well as physically. That is why we are proud to partner with child and adolescent development specialist, Dr. Robyn A Silverman for our Powerful Words Character Development Program. Students will participate in a lesson at each class encouraging them to listen, share, discover, and reflect on the ways to become upstanding members of our community as well as confident individuals in their own right. The Powerful Words bulletin boards provide a one-stop info center to keep you updated with what the children are learning. In addition, each month you will receive editions of the Parent’s Perch Newsletter, Dear Dr. Robyn, and a Powerful Project to complete with your child, reinforcing your values to what we discuss in the dojo.
We are thrilled to provide you with quality character education and Dr. Robyn’s Powerful Words resources! Let’s work together to help our children achieve their most powerful personal best!
