PARENTS IN Johnson City ARE ASTONISHED BY THE POSITIVE IMPACT MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES ARE HAVING ON THEIR CHILD!

We teach children to focus. In this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill that will provide immediate results in their academic work. 

Martial arts help teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are commonly underdeveloped skills in ADHD kids.


And did we mention ... martial arts are FUN!

Consider these benefits of martial arts when enrolling your child:
 

• Fosters self-discipline

• Boosts socialization skills

• Encourages physical activity

• Teaches kids to set and achieve goals

• Increases self-esteem

• Instills a sense of respect

• Encourages non-violent conflict resolution

• Improves listening skills

• Develops teamwork skills

• Improvement in other areas of life

 

At Olson's Martial Arts Academy,
we Teach the Same Values You Teach at Home.

Our martial arts classes foster respect in all senses of the word. Your children will learn not only to respect others, but to respect themselves as well. Self-confidence is key in carrying respect into the home, school, and other social situations.

Karate Kubs

Karate Kubs is our Pre-School program for ages 3-6. We use Taekwondo to teach gross motor skills as well as disciplines such as listening, showing respect, taking turns and self-control.

 

These classes are taught by instructors who love children and are patient with youngsters. They understand that these little guys are just learning how do basic things such as jumping jacks and paying attention to the instructors. The mental goal is to help prepare them for a successful transition into pre-school or into kindergarten. The physical goal is to prepare them to enter the Jr. Taekwondo program with confidence and the skills they will need to learn the more challenging curriculum.

 

We implement many of the Safety Net Kids (safetynetkids.com) lessons such as stranger confrontation and dealing with bullies.  Some of our most talented and respectful teen students started in this very class.

Junior Taekwondo Program

Our mission, through Taekwondo and martial arts, is to instill positive values and character traits into our students.

 

We focus primarily on character building, self-defense, and learning how to live a healthy lifestyle. This develops a confidence and respect that we hope will stay with children for the rest of their lives.

 

We have a well-trained and talented staff that love to work with children. Juniors can expect to learn kicks, punches, self-defense, forms, board breaking, sparring, and conditioning in classes. We believe in positive reinforcement when teaching so you can expect your child to learn in a very positive atmosphere.

Junior Jiu-Jitsu

Using Gracie Jiu-Jitsu under the Pedro Sauer Association, our Junior (7 to 12 years) Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is a safe self-defense system that is fun to learn and empowers children to neutralize unwanted confrontation.

 

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is foremost a defensive art and teaches us to only use self-defense when needed. Children in our program will learn a variety of standing self-defenses (against grabs, pushes, punches etc.), and how to safely escape, neutralize, and control a bully on the ground.

 

From their first day, we focus on teaching children how to calmly and confidently diffuse a situation without having to use Jiu Jitsu for defense.  Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is physically and mentally challenging and will be an exciting journey for anyone.  (www.pedrosauer.com).

Junior Leadership Program

Our goal at Olson's Martial Arts is to not only create excellent martial artists, but develop great leaders as well.

 

Our leadership program, developed by Master Amanda Olson, is nationally recognized by MA Success magazine. Master Olson has created thousands of junior leaders and hundreds of skilled adult instructors across the country with her program. The program works on building confidence, public speaking, people skills, class management skills, not to mention detailed knowledge of Taekwondo.

 

People who have been mentored in this program will be prepared to not only lead in a martial arts school, but to be a confident leader wherever they go in life. This is truly a fun way to grow as a martial artist and grow as a person.
