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.
Chang’s is a phenomenal program that teaches your kids respect, self worth, hard work, fitness, and dedication at the age of 3 and up. My boys love it and I noticed a change in their behavior at home too. Thank you Chang’s!
Can’t say enough good things about Chang’s (CMA). We have been a part of the CMA family since 2014. My son has been taking TKD and their instructor Mr. David is amazing with the kids. You can tell all the kids have a great time. We also held a birthday party at CMA for my son. Mr. David hosted and led all the activities, and truly made my son feel like the star and champion on his special day (got to break a special board and cut the birthday cake with a sword!). CMA offers a great summer camp so we will plan on registering again this year.
Nothing but great things to say about this place. The instructors are awesome! I’ve seen the change in my daughter. She use to be very timid and shy, she has gained confidence and has learned to focus.
Congratulations Chang’s Martial Arts on completing 30 years. Taekwondo has helped my kids become strong, flexible, confident and social. They are more deciplined now.
I can’t say enough great things about Chang’s! My daughter started in April, 2017 and has worked her way up to an Orange Belt, plus just started a sparring class and she LOVES it. At her age, we have tried soccer, gymnastics, swimming and baseball – yes she loves them all for about a month but then loses interest and wants to move on to the next thing. With the great instructors at Chang’s (especially Mr. David!!), and extra activities they often plan (Back-To-School party, Parents Night Out, Anti-Bullying class, etc.), my daughter honestly cannot wait for the next thing. She is also enrolled at their After-School program – I was concerned that going everyday could be a bit much and she would get burned out, but if anything, she is enjoying it more and more!
Kudos to Chang’s for maintaining the interest level of a very outgoing 7-year-old and helping to teach her the art of patience and respect! You guys are the best!! 🙂
