Sibling Conflict and Martial Arts

Conflict Resolution and Clear Thinking for Kids

By Olson’s Martial Arts Academy in Johnson City, TN

Sibling conflict can lead to long-lasting negative effects on individuals and their relationships. It can cause emotional distress, impact self-esteem, and erode the bond between siblings. Unresolved conflicts can also escalate into more serious problems. Thus, it’s important to address sibling conflicts in a healthy and productive way.

Joining a karate training class would be the best for them as it not only helps the kids to be more self-controlled, but also instills a lot of self-discipline and helps them to think clearly. Martial Arts teaches students to respect and cooperate with others. Teamwork is also a character trait emphasized in classes. Our classes help kids to channel their aggressive attitude and ensure that they become more focused about what they want to achieve. It also helps them in resolving any conflict they may come across in the future. Such training will also be helpful for the shy and reserved children. By attending classes,  they will become totally confident and outspoken people.

In Olson’s Martial Arts Academy classes, your children will get all the help they need and will help them to engage their mind and body in doing something useful. Olson’s Martial Arts Academy  has the best coaching and training staff who will make the children ready to face the challenges of the future. It will be perfect utilization of their summer holidays as it also instills a sense of respect, focus and confidence in your child.

From the Olson Family

We would first like to say, “Welcome!” It is our goal to provide the best martial arts training in a safe and encouraging environment. As a family we have devoted our lives to not only training the physical aspects of martial arts to thousands of people but the mental and emotional aspects, as well. Our goal is to help each student achieve Black Belt and Beyond. The reason for this is that we know from over 40 years of experience teaching martial arts that when a student experiences the awarding of a Black Belt, they soar with confidence.

What it Takes to become a Martial Arts Black Belt

It takes commitment, perseverance, goal setting and a strong work ethic to earn that belt. Even at a young age people know that a black belt in martial arts means something important. It shows you don’t quit; you don’t give up. That you have what it takes! Once you’ve done that, you know you can do anything you set your mind to: like getting into a great college, starting a career, making the team, anything you want.

We love to hear the success stories of our students after they have gone off to college and started lives and families of their own. However, we are not surprised by their success. We already know they have what it takes to live their dream.

Character Development

Another goal we have as a family is to support families and help reinforce the qualities of character you desire for your child to have. Our proven character development and leadership program includes lessons from making eye contact to handling conflict. Also, speaking up and showing confidence ,as well as, standing strong for what you believe is right. Our desire is to train black belts who are not only highly skilled in the art of self-defense but who are kind, compassionate, confident citizens of our communities. People who have a strong work ethic and will show “Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control and Respect”, everywhere they go.

Let us Partner with You! Because of this, we want to partner with you, the parents and families, in helping give your child a strong foundation in values, to be able to stand up for themselves and others, to make good choices, and to live a healthy lifestyle. Please don’t hesitate to speak with us if there is ever a point where we can help with question or concerns from motivation to troubles with bullying. We are committed to helping each of our students live a happier, safer and more confident life.

Sincerely, Amanda, Keith and Katie
