What if your Child ACTUALLY WANTED to be more Fit, Confident and Disciplined?

Dear Parents,

Hi, my name is Josh Barnard, owner of Fort Lauderdale Karate. I’ve been professionally teaching children just like yours for years, and we’ve spent countless hours focusing our Fort Lauderdale Martial Arts Classes on things that parents just like you want for their children. Things like Focus, Confidence, Discipline, and Independent Motivation – Life Skills that Martial Arts students at Fort Lauderdale Karate use every day in their school classroom, at home, and everywhere they go.

We know for a fact that your child will WANT to learn these vital life Skills. Not because we MAKE them (as adults often do with children),but  because our professional instructors and super-high energy, engaging classes set your child up for success by using our Simple 3 Step Success System. It REALLY is that simple, and it REALLY is that effective.

Parents Say Within a Few Weeks they See:

  • Sustained Focus and Concentration

  • Improved Patience and Self Discipline

  • Increased Fitness and Stamina

  • Soaring Confidence and Self Esteem

Don't Take It From Me! Here's What Parents of our Students Say All the Time:

My son Seth was struggling greatly with focus, following directions, and discipline. I thought if he took Martial Arts that it may help in all those areas. After just a few weeks, Seth responded well to Josh’s patience and confident demenor. Not only did he aquire better self control but also picked up his confidence which helped him focus in Martial Arts as well as in life. To see a spark of change so quickly, it has inspired me to hopefully get involved myself at Barnard’s Martial Arts MartialFIT.

If any parent is having trouble getting their child to focus or to learn respect, this school of Martial Arts is for you to send them. Sensei Josh is one of the most patient men I have ever met. He is very encouraging, and stern when need be. My soon to be 5 year old loves his class and even remembers to remind me to bring his gi (uniform) when I forget. I even remind him of Sensei and what he has learned in the dojo in times when I need him to remember to respect or to focus and remain centered. I am excited to and intend on attending one or more of his adult classes, ranging from his Martial Fit classes, to gung-fu, as soon as I am prepared to. If you have children, this is great, and if you don't, this is great! Try it out as soon as you can, you wont be disappointed.

That's Great - But How Do You Know It'll Work For YOUR Family?

Because We use a Tried-and-True, Simple 3 Step Success System:

Step #1: Self Discipline

The honest truth is that for many children, Self-Discipline isn’t innate;  it has to be learned. But how it’s learned (how adults choose to teach and enforce the it) decides whether it will be accepted by the child, and become an intrinsic part of who they are, or rejected as just another thing they’re “supposed to do” (like the dishes, eating their vegetables, homework, etc). We know that – we live it everyday. So we don’t force self-discipline on our students (remember, it’s SELF Discipline), but instead slowly build self discipline through fun class drills, group exercise dynamics, and engaging Kids Martial Arts curriculum – until before they know it, your kids will WANT to sit still, pay attention, and focus on the teacher…. and they’ll have a BLAST learning how to do it! Sounds crazy, but it WORKS!

Step #2: Self Defense

Of course, we’re talking about teaching your child martial arts moves that, should they ever need them, could be used for self defense. But chances are THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. But you know what will happen? Someone WILL call them a name. Say negative things about them, to them, behind their back, or to their friends. Someone will call them short, ugly, stupid, or worse…they’ll consider saying these things to someone else, so that they can “fit in”.

Let me be very clear – I can and will teach your child how to physically defend themselves. But far, FAR more important, our Martial Arts classes will teach them to emotionally defend themselves from the challenges they’ll face every day in elementary school, middle school, high school, college, and yes, you know it’s true, the workplace and in real life as an adultThis is the real legacy at our school: emotionally strong children who grow into confident, self assured adults. Which is why we focus so much on #3:

Step #3: Self Confidence

For some children, just trying something new takes tremendous courage, and we’re there to show them how to try new things (like Kids Martial Arts classes). Children like this show MASSIVE confidence increases in extremely short amounts of time. Before you know it, they’re standing proud and answering questions with ease (in the martial arts classroom as well as at school!).

For others, Confidence comes a little more naturally, and we’re able to expand their natural abilities and challenge them in a way no other extra-curricular activity can.

Seriously. You’re Going to LOVE it and Your Child Will THANK You For It!

Regardless of their initial level of confidence, they’ll get the benefit of the group dynamic – learning with their peers, following directions, interacting with others – but they’ll also get the advantages of an individual activity – they’ll never be compared to another student, never be held back if they learn too quickly, and will never, NEVER ride the bench or sit out just because they aren’t as good as the rest of the team (don’t even get me started on that one!)
