Ready To Learn How You Can Have “Peace of Mind” Knowing That Your Child Is Prepared With The “Tools” To Succeed In School, at Home and In Life?

Comments from our Parents and Students

"I have seen so much improvement in his confidence level as well as in his ability to deal with everyday situations."

Hello, my name is Tim Edwards and I am writing this letter on behalf of Family Martial Martial Arts and their staff. My now eleven-year-old son has been attending class at this facility for approximately three years. When he started, he was a little timid and lacking in self-confidence. Within this time, I have seen so much improvement in his confidence level as well as in his ability to deal with everyday situations. I credit this to the instructors and staff of Family Martial Arts. I would strongly and wholeheartedly recommend Family Martial Arts to all who are interested in helping their children learn valuable life lessons and self-defense.

God Bless,

Tim Edwards

Family Martial Arts is the SECRET!

Did you know that Martial Arts is 10 times better than Team Sports in developing a child's self esteem and confidence? Our program can and WILL help your child increase their confidence, self- esteem, discipline, While teaching them life skills that will last them a lifetime and much more. (Let me explain why you MUST come see our program for yourself, it will be the best thing that you'll ever do for your child.)

Dear Parent,

Welcome to our website! Face it, it's a scary world out there for kids.

Each day we ask our children to face challenges that were unheard of just a few short years ago.

Too many overcrowded classrooms. Increased peer pressures. Violence. Topped off with a stinking bad attitude in our communities that can drag down almost any child.

Even when we’ve made our children physically safe, we have this gnawing fear they remain unsafe mentally. We worry about their optimism, their self-esteem. We ask ourselves, “Are they maintaining that wonderful, positive outlook they had when they were younger?”

Now you know why I’m here. As one parent to another, I have an important message: It doesn’t have to be this way. A solution exists, and it’s easier than you think.

I’m Scott Shoen, father of a 2 year old. I’m also president of Family Martial Arts Academy, one of the most sought out Academies in the Cleveland area. I’ve been teaching Martial Arts to families like yours Aurora for eight years.

Don't just take my word for it…

Listen to what some School Teachers have to say about FMAA:

"I enjoyed seeing some students with difficulties rise to the occasion and shape up. I would definitely recommend this program".

I am Elisabeth Patterson and I teach Physical Education at a K through 5 school in a Cleveland suburb. My students had the experience of having Mr. Shoen and his staff come to my school and introduce Karate. It was a great experience for my students, because not only was it absolutely fun and exercise, it also included a lot of character education. I enjoyed seeing some students with difficulties rise to the occasion and shape up. I would definitely recommend this program.

- Elisabeth Patterson

"They have learned and practiced goal setting…"

The lunchtime program taught by instructors from Family Martial Arts has provided Cleveland students with valuable life skills. They have learned and practiced goal setting, that applies not only to kicking and breaking a board, but also to doing homework and chores. I would highly recommend this program to students of all ages.

So what would you think if I told you I could increase your child’s levels of Confidence, Energy and Spirit?

So much so, they would become unstoppable!

Unstoppable in their pursuit of:

  • Academic achievement
  • High self esteem
  • A fit, healthy lifestyle

And all of it comes from learning how to "kick, block and punch." Still, you're wondering if this will work for your child. I understand. So let me tell you a story. It's about a young man, and old man, and a drunk:

"A turning point in my life came one day on a train in the suburbs of Tokyo, in the middle of a drowsy spring afternoon.

"At one station the doors opened, and suddenly the quiet afternoon was shattered. There stood a man at the doorway, bellowing at the top of his lungs. He yelled violent, obscene, incomprehensible curses. Just as the doors closed, the man staggered into the car. He was big, drunk, and dirty. He wore laborer's clothing. His front was stiff with dried vomit. His eyes bugged out a demonic, neon red. His hair was crusted with filth. Screaming, he swung at the first person he saw, a woman with a baby. The blow glanced off her shoulder, sending her spinning into the laps of an elderly couple. It was a miracle that the baby was unharmed.

"The couple jumped up and scrambled toward the other end of the car. They were terrified. The laborer aimed a kick at the retreating back of the old lady. `I'll kill you, old woman!' he bellowed. He missed, and the old woman scuttled to safety. This so enraged the drunk, he grabbed the metal pole in the center of the car and tried to wrench it out of its stanchion. I could see that one of his hands was cut and bleeding. The train lurched ahead, the passengers frozen with fear. I stood up.

"I was young and in pretty good shape. I stood six feet, weighed 225. I'd been putting in a solid eight hours of Aikido training every day for the past three years. I liked to throw and grapple. I thought I was tough. Trouble was, my martial skill was untested in actual combat. As students of Aikido, we were not allowed to fight.

"My teacher, the founder of Aikido, taught us each morning that martial arts were devoted to peace. `Aikido,' he said again and again, `is the art of reconciliation. Whoever has the mind to fight has broken his connection with the universe. If you try to dominate other people, you are already defeated. We study how to resolve conflict, not how to start it.'

"I listened to his words. I tried hard. I wanted to quit fighting. I could feel my forbearance exalting me. I felt both tough and holy. In my heart of hearts, however, I was dying to be a hero. I wanted a chance, an absolutely legitimate opportunity whereby I might save the innocent by destroying the guilty.

"`This is it!' I said to myself as I got to my feet. `This slob, this animal, is drunk and mean and violent. People are in danger. If I don't do something fast, somebody will probably get hurt. I'm gonna take him to the cleaners.'

"Seeing me stand up, the drunk saw a chance to focus his rage. `Aha!' he roared. `A foreigner! You need a lesson in Japanese manners!'

"I held on lightly to the commuter strap overhead. I gave him a slow look of disgust and dismissal. I gave him every bit of nastiness I could summon up. I planned to take this turkey apart, but he had to be the one to move first. And I wanted him mad, because the madder he got, the more certain the victory. I pursed my lips and blew him a sneering, insolent kiss. It hit him like a slap in the face. `All right!' he hollered. `You're gonna get a lesson.' He gathered himself for a rush at me. He'd never know what hit him.

"A split-second before he moved, someone shouted `HEY!' It was so earsplitting. I wheeled to my left, the drunk spun to his right. We both stared down at a little old Japanese man. He must have been well into his seventies. He sat there immaculate in his kimono an hakama. He took no notice of me, but beamed delightedly at the laborer, as though he had a most important secret to share.

"`C'mere,' the old man said in an easy tone of voice. `C'mere and talk with me.' He waved his old hand lightly. The big man followed. He planted his feet in front of the old man and towered over him. `Talk to you,' he roared above the clacking wheels. `Why should I talk to you?' The drunk now had his back to me. If his elbow moved so much as a millimeter, I'd drop him in his socks.

"The old man continued to beam at the laborer. There was not a trace of fear or resentment about him. `What'cha been drinkin'?" he asked lightly, his eyes sparkling with interest. `I been drinkin sake,' the laborer bellowed back. `And it's none of your business!' Flecks of spittle spattered the old man.

"'Oh, that's wonderful,' the old man said with delight . . . `absolutely wonderful! You see, I love sake, too. Every night, my wife and I (she's 76, you know), warm up a little bottle of sake. We take it out into the garden, and we sit on the old wooden bench that my grandfather's first student made for him. We watch the sun go down behind the persimmon tree. It is most gratifying, even when it rains!' He looked up at the laborer, eyes twinkling, happy to share the delightful details about his personal life.

"As he struggled to figure where the old man's conversation was taking him, the drunk's face began to soften. His fists slowly unclenched. `Yeah,' he said slowly. `I love persimmons, too . . . .' His voice trailed off.

"`Yes,' said the old man, smiling, `and I'm sure you have a wonderful wife.'

"`No,' replied the laborer. `My wife died.' He hung his head. Very gently, swaying with the motion of the train, the big man began to sob. `I don't got no wife. I don't got no home. I don't got no job. I don't got no money. I don't got nowhere to go. I'm so ashamed.' Tears rolled down his cheeks. A spasm of pure despair rippled through his body. Above the luggage rack, a four-color ad trumpeted the virtues of suburban luxury living.

"Now it was my turn. Standing there in my well-scrubbed youthful innocence, my `make this world safe for democracy' self-righteousness, I suddenly felt dirtier than he was.

"Just then, the train arrived at my stop. The platform was packed. The crowd surged into the car as soon as the doors opened. As I struggled to get out, I heard the old man cluck sympathetically. `My, my,' he said. `That is a very difficult position to be in. Tell me about it.'

"I turned my head for one last look. The laborer was sprawled like a sack on the seat, his head in the old man's lap. The old man looked down at him, all compassion and delight. One hand softly stroked filthy, matted hair.

"As the train pulled away, I sat down on a bench. What I had wanted to do with muscle and meanness had been done with a few kind words. Now I had seen Aikido in combat, and the essence of it was love, as the founder had said. I would have to practice the art with an entirely different spirit. It would be a long time before I could speak about the settling of conflict."

So what's this got to do with your child?

Ask yourself, "What did the old man have that the young man didn't?" For me, it has to do with peace. The more confidence a person has in himself, the less need he has to fight with himself. He's at peace with who he is.

Look at it this way. Your child’s first and biggest challenge comes not from “fighting for his rights on the street,” or “beating up the neighborhood bully.” It comes, instead, from battling more sinister forces. Your child’s own fears and self doubts” “I’m not as smart as John.”

  • “I don’t get what my teacher is saying.”
  • “I wish I was as [strong, pretty, tall] as Sally.”
  • “Why does Jim keep giving me a bad time?”
  • “Why can’t I be as popular as Jill?”

Question is, how do you get your child to fight these demons? You know the problem. Your child has a tough time even telling you she’s haunted by them. Never mind how she might conquer them. Children class at Victory Martial Arts

Well, the good news is, I have a proven solution. A program that has already worked for over hundreds of children. A series of lessons your child can learn easier than you think.

To repeat, martial arts are less about your child learning to fight others, and more about fighting… himself. His innermost fears. Conquer them, and your child unleashes within himself a powerful, unstoppable force.

A force that gives him the strength to kick down the doors of his own self doubts. A force that opens your child to the exalting power of values.

Like this:

COURAGE . Your child finds the courage to move outside of his comfort zone. He wills himself to take on more difficult karate moves and skills. He becomes no longer afraid of being afraid. As he does so, he learns that whatever he sows, so he reaps. He learns to blame no one but himself. He suddenly sees his life as a constant, never-ending journey of life-giving improvement.

In short, with a deep breath, he refuses to become a victim of fate. He puts an arm lock on his own destiny.

STAYING POWER. Your child finds joy in improving her physical stamina. She can walk farther, run longer, and practice skills until she gets them right.

In turn, she learns not to give up. She sticks things out. With the help of her teachers, she strives harder, longer to reach her goals. Even if she fails, she preserves her self-respect. She won't let her self doubts get in the way of finding ultimate solutions.

HONESTY. As the man said, "Where performance is measured, performance improves." Yet, your child has to first accept where he stands now. That means measuring current strengths. Above all, he learns that to succeed, he can't fool anyone, especially himself.

Children Martial ArtsThis results in a keener focus. He learns to make eye contact with his teacher (and not just in karate). He pays greater attention to what each teacher says. He knows and accepts where he stands.

These are just some of the powerful, energizing values your child will get from the Family Karate Academy program. In short, you can look forward to your child developing. . .

Powerful self control. She'll refuse to give in to negative peer pressure. She'll have a deeper respect for rules.

Improved focus. She'll learn what's needed, along with the skill to "zero in" on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting, childhood distractions won't get in her way.

Fearless self confidence. Watch as your child finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.

Towering role-model teachers. As you might guess, all of this couldn't have happened unless I had the very best of teachers. To make sure I have the very best, each of them started as white-belt beginners, right here in my school.
