In most schools, enrollment in this age group tends to be less than ideal, but we have a thriving culture of talented youth and teen martial artists because we know exactly how to reach this age group.
Numerous psychological studies have found that children between the ages of 9 and 14 who study martial arts, and specifically the style of martial arts taught at DLux Karate, have an increased sense of responsibility, are more reluctant to take foolish risks, and have a greater sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education.
At DLux Karate, a majority of our students fall into the category we call our Ninja / Teen Program. Martial arts school industry standards suggest a lull in the age group from 9 to 14 years old. The fact that many martial art schools don't have a large enrollment in this area is proof they are not doing something correctly.
Our unique blend of martial arts activities channel children’s aggression. Many doctors have prescribed our school because of the positive outlet it provides the kids to release their energy. Our Ninja / Teen program teaches children practical, essential, proven self defense skills. We also teach our students that the moves they learn in class will work, so they do not try them on their family members or neighbors. Our Mixed Martial Arts program emphasizes complete physical and mental development.
We attribute this to our high-energy, exciting, fun, yet realistic classes, which includes bringing some of the best instruction in the world to our schools. Each one of our teachers is put through a rigorous training course, resulting is some of the best coaches in the world for this age group.
Since bullying is most prevalent in this age group, we teach the youth in these classes the most effective techniques and strategies they must know to defend themselves if physically attacked.
The best part about the techniques is that they are totally non-violent, and are only applied in response to the physical aggression of a bully, ensuring that the techniques are never used for the wrong reason.
Our program is the most well rounded, touching on all the things that a person of this age could want to hear and see. Reality is our motto. We leave each student walking away with the three "S’s" theory; Sweating, Smiling and Striving for more. This metaphor was coined many years ago by one of the best martial arts motivators, and we have been using it ever since with outstanding results!
Each student will gain the edge in life, and grab onto the personal power which has guided thousands of our students to become masters of their lives. Each student will learn the emotions and behaviors that drive them, and how they can manage their minds and bodies to achieve greater success than they ever dreamed of.
Self defense is a skill you would be led to believe is universal in all martial arts. The simple definition of martial arts means "military arts", teaching a person how to defend one’s self, family and country. The sad reality of this is that many martial arts schools are not teaching realistic self defense for the 21st century. At DLux Karate, many of our students grow up in our program and we have witnessed first hand our students becoming doctors, lawyers, NAVY S.E.A.L's and mothers and fathers themselves.
