Our programs teach practical martial arts, bully protection, and proven self-defense techniques. The skills we teach are not only physical techniques, but also emotional strategies about how to “find your voice” to face life with courage and determination. Students learn to stand up for themselves and their principles. We teach that physical self-defense is the last resort and rarely necessary. True self-defense starts with learning to be confident and knowing how to negotiate and get along with others. We focus on what it means to be a person of character and to never misuse our skills. At Kaizen IBBA, students learn so much more than just kicking and punching. They learn to avoid conflict, set and achieve goals, and many other important skills to succeed in life. Children are taught to treat others (including their siblings) with kindness and patience, while holding strong to their values.
Our Lil’ Dragons class is specifically designed to meet the developmental needs of our youngest students. In addition to building a solid foundation for martial arts training, this class has a strong focus on life skills such as patience, taking turns, self-control, following directions, how to make friends, coordination, mental focus, and confidence.
Our amazing and patient group of instructors loves to work with children. They understand the various challenges kids this age face in trying to focus and their need to become more self-disciplined. Through our IBBA Karate for Kids program, we establish clear rules of proper behavior in class and we encourage the same good behavior at home and in school. At Kaizen IBBA we have found a balance of fun and clear structure that helps young students succeed and love coming to class. Our aim is to help our students learn not only excellent martial arts skills, but also to set and achieve goals, choose proper behavior, and work hard in everything they do.
