PARENTS ARE ASTONISHED BY THE POSITIVE IMPACT MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES ARE HAVING ON THEIR CHILD!
Xcelsior programs are specifically designed to teach students to become successful leaders. Our students are taught to be a LEADER - not a follower - and have the focus, energy and confidence to succeed when faced with the tough challenges for today. We are committed to providing a safe, caring and educational environment-supporting and actively encouraging the personal growth of our students. Our program assists in developing an awareness of the importance of fitness, health and safety, enhancing personal responsibility among our students.
IT IS OUR MISSION TO AWAKEN THE CHAMPION WITHIN EACH ONE OF OUR STUDENTS.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
What does "improvement in other areas of life" mean? It can mean getting better grades in school, knowing how to use anti-bullying programs to prevent violence amongst peers, or simply the appreciation that comes from learning and mastering a difficult skill through practice.
Perhaps most importantly, students learn that physical activity is a healthy way to have fun. With health problems such as diabetes and obesity affecting more and more young people, parents should take steps to help their children avoid these issues. Children's martial arts gives kids a fun way to exercise, learn essential life lessons and develop a sense of self-reliance.
