Class was great because we tried new things. My favorite thing yesterday was playing the game and earning my star on my stripe.

My son had gained so much self confidence after attending only 4 weeks of classes. His level of respect and discipline continues to increase as his training does. The instructors and staff are great with the kids and go above and beyond to make sure they know your child’s needs.

Great group of folks running this business. My son loves coming to karate here. I've never seen him so excited about anything, and we've tried several sports and activities. Says a lot about AFMA. Very impressed with all of the instructors. They have patience and go the extra mile for those with special needs as well, making it possible for those individuals to participate like everyone else (just from my observations). That's one of the things I love about this place. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to try out karate. They make it a fun environment to learn.

My son got confidence, overcome shy and is developing leadership qualities. He completed one year at American Family Martial Arts. Now he is in green belt. He loves karate and it's his passion. I recommend other parents also to join their kids to AFMA.

Mr. Foreman thought of an effective way to get the kids to think independently vs. following others. He gave them each different moves in Korean. We also like how he gives pneumonics for them to remember the words and actions. Evidently it's working and our girls are enjoying the classes very much!

My boys have been members of American Family Martial Arts for the past 3 years. It has been absolutely amazing for them.The instructors are knowledgeable and know how to work with students. The instructors not only make them better martial artists but also better people. My oldest son has special needs. SBN Tullier and Mr. Foreman have been great with him. They are patient when they need to be and understand my son's needs. Since my boys have been taking karate their anxiety level has lowered and their confidence has soared. It has been a pleasure to be part of the AFMA family.

Your child can do chores without being asked

This month at American Family Martial Arts our students are studying the character word: SELF-DISCIPLINE. Parents and teachers both overwhelmingly agree that self-discipline is one of the most important skills anyone can have – yet relatively few believe they’ve been successful at helping their own children demonstrate it. However, it goes without saying that children can and will learn self-discipline if they are exposed to an environment that nurtures this very skill.  karate mat chat

All this month, American Family Martial Arts students are learning why self-discipline is good for their everyday life. They’ll also learn how to develop self-discipline skills in a fun and entertaining way.

You can help by reinforcing self-discipline at home. If you lead by example your child will follow. Below are some tips on how to compliment the lessons we teach about self-discipline this month:

  • Remember that self-discipline and discipline go hand in hand. When disciplining your child keep in mind that discipline and punishment are not the same. Discipline is about guiding children in ways that support their development on self-control. Read this American Family Martial Arts blog on the difference between the two: click here
  • Catch your child showing self-discipline at home and praise them for their efforts. Catch them when they do things without being asked, like
    • making their bed
    • brushing their teeth
    • clearing the dinner table or taking out the trash
    • gathering their dobak & belt for class at American Family Martial Arts
  • Give your child opportunities to apply self-discipline by giving them some new age-appropriate responsibilities. Here’s a chart to help you out 
  • Demonstrate self-discipline yourself. Make sure they see you cleaning your room, making your bed, treating others with respect, etc. Here are some tips on developing focused self discipline: Six steps to developing self discipline for adults  This could also be a good discussion topic for you and your child.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to watching our youthful students build the skill of self-discipline!
