Unity Martial Arts
The Next Generation
Our Martial Arts for Children Program Helps Children Grow in Many Areas of Life
Self-Defense in Daily Life
Our self-defense training goes well beyond dealing with bullies.
We teach children how to defend a wide range of harmful issues including, Defense Against Negative Influences. Defense Against Quitting. Defense Against Poor Health. Defense Against Temptation.
Our proven martial arts and success principles will help your child learn how to make good decisions. We will increase their self-confidence with powerful communication skills, enhanced situational awareness, and the adaptability of a ninja.
What We Feed Grows
Never before has it been more important for parents to monitor and control the focus and influence culture and society has on our children.
Children do not lack focus or concentration. They spend hours on their smartphone or video games.
What they lack is the discipline to focus on what is healthy and good for them.
Unity Martial Arts instructors are good, positive role models that will help your children make good decisions about what they do with their time and how to be more productive and enjoy the process.
Self-Control & Character
Children in our martial arts program are taught to resist impulsive, emotional reactions and instead use consideration and restraint.
Kids today need the courage to say “NO” to the vast number of daily temptations. It’s important they know what is right and wrong in the world and use distance as their best defense.
We’ll teach your child the almost magical secret strategy for making good decisions in every area of life regardless of age.
Kids need to know that our minds can play tricks on us. For instance, eating a bowl of ice cream every night might seem fun, but the short-term PLEASURE (GAIN) of eating 800 sugar calories nightly will result in the long-term PAIN of obesity and the problems that come with it.
Successful people seek short-term pain for long-term gain. For instance, you endure the short-term pain of exercising for the long-term gain of looking and feeling your best.

Competence Leads To Confidence
We’ll teach your children how to set and achieve goals.
“But I want it now!” Sound familiar?
In our world one-click access to way too much, it’s tougher than ever to instill the patience and fortitude to set a long-term goal and follow through to the finish line.
The belt system is a proven system for teaching children that the good things in life take time.
You can’t start as a black belt, but with consistent attendance and practice, you can work your way up the ladder of belts all the way to black.
That same system works for any worthwhile goal.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS FROM PARENTS
My child is shy and introverted. How will that affect his participation in class?
If there is any common success story from our martial arts program it’s students and parents telling us how we helped their child to “come out of his/her shell.”
We have specific drills and exercises that are effective for helping students take small steps toward a more confident presence.
My child has a short attention span. Can you work with that?
We understand that keeping attention can be a real challenge with this age group.
That’s why our program is fast-moving and engaging for the children.
Our instructors are also experts at helping children to re-focus in class until it becomes natural to the child.
My child is not very active and never liked sports before.
It’s all in the presentation, especially with children. One of the strongest benefits of our martial arts for children program is instilling and motivating a desire to have a healthier diet and body.
This may be one of the best long-term benefits of training at our school.
My child has a "my way or no way!" attitude. Can this help?
One of the somewhat magical effects of our martial arts classes for kids is mix of psychology and physiology.
We often think of the mental disciplines of martial arts but the physical disciplines are just as important and emphasized just as much.
Recognizing and resisting urges to act out are central to the discipline of making sure a student is not abusing the training.
That includes developing the self-control not to act out.
My child is constantly fighting with his sister. Are we putting her at risk?
The responsible use of martial arts for good rather than harm is central to everything we teach.
Parents of our martial arts students are consistently impressed with how our training helps to mature the children in different ways and temper control is one of them.
Much of that has to do with a heightened self-awareness to recognize when things are “heating up” and how to de-escalate.”
My child has a history of quitting new activities.
When you enroll your child into our school to help with self-discipline, it’s crucial that you work with the instructors to set clear expectations.
This starts with your child clearly understanding that the first discipline is to come to class twice a week and practice two non-class days.
To help you with that the child psychologists in the Martial Arts Teachers’ Association’s Certification program suggest you be aware of what activity the child is engaged in right before getting ready for class.
If they are playing their favorite game, they may be more resistant to shifting attention than if they were cleaning their room or doing yard work. :0)
