My 5 year old daughter started at MAX3 almost 9 months ago. As the mom of a VERY hyper, kind hearted, feisty and sensitive child, I have to say that it fills my heart to see her confidence in herself grow more than I could have imagined in these 9 months.

The staff is extremely friendly and they always go the extra mile for their students. You can walk in on any given day and see EVERY instructor talking a student up and cheering them on.

My daughter is definitely gaining so much more from MAX3 than I hoped for when we started this journey! Thank you all so much! ❤️

We’ve been with MAX3 for two months now. Our daughter was so scared to go to her first class because she is so shy and had no self esteem, but right from the start the instructors made her feel welcome! Now she gets so excited when it’s time to go and she even volunteers during class. Thanks to their encouragement, she strives to be the best she can be. We are so happy that we found a place that she’s so comfortable in and also one that has helped build so much confidence in her! Thank you to the MAX3 Staff for all that you do!!!

Starting my son in karate has been one of the best decisions. He learns something new every time he goes and his confidence is so much better than when he first started. He learns valuable life lessons from the classes and I cant brag on the instructors enough, they are absolutely wonderful with the kids!!!

My daughter, age 6, and my son, age 4, have both been attending MAX3 for a few months now and they both love it! The instructors are fantastic! They really take the time to get to know each kid, make classes fun, all while teaching them martial arts and life skills. I would recommended MAX3 to any one looking for martial art classes!

MAX3 has been a wonderful experience! The instructors are knowledgeable and so fun and patient with kids! The curriculum is challenging for my 8 yr old but not overwhelming. She has learned to control her movements and develop strength and coordination. She has made many new friends and looks forward to classes.

We have had the most wonderful experience at MAX3. These last 2 testing cycles, my boys have been learning all about respect and self esteem. Not only are they learning martial arts, but important life skills too. The instructors are patient and enthusiastic. I feel like they are truly invested in my boys, they know them by name and are genuinely interested in how they are doing. I’m so glad that we started this journey to a black belt with MAX3!!!!

5 Reasons Kids Thrive with Martial Arts

Sometimes confident and self-assured children will meet older kids at school and find that many of the lessons learned about kindness have been forgotten by older kids.

Likewise many students making the transition from elementary to middle school find the rules that they once understood change yet again.

Bullying is a factor in development at all ages, and while a recent Department of Education study shows that there is a decline in bullying, the numbers are still shocking.

Students from 12 to 18 years of age reported that 22 percent are bullied at school.

While this is a drop from 28 percent, it makes very little difference to the children who must face this every day.

Professionals such as teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators can intervene, but very little is done to help the child who has been bullied.

The focus is in general on stopping the bullying, and can paradoxically lead to the child being ostracized, or being bullied by other children.

They often feel helpless, alone, traumatized, anxious, and depressed.

Moreover, kids do not report being bullied when it happens, they may even be afraid to report it.

The long-term effects of bullying can be devastating, causing one in 10 kids to drop out of school.

While we are not minimizing the value of psychotherapy, or professional intervention, we do advocate vigorously for children to learn martial arts.

There are reasons that children thrive in the atmosphere of a martial arts school like MAX3, and the reasons are documented even by such institutions of higher learning as West Point.

Kids, even those who are struggling with a bullying situation, can thrive with martial arts.

Yes, physical fitness is important, but it is the emotional and mental factors that can help the most.

  1. Self-Confidence: Appropriate confidence levels are desperately important. A child’s development and future in the world depends on them having the confidence to execute behaviors such as going to school, raising their hands in class, and even doing homework. People with self-confidence are more relaxed, and feel more positive emotions, which allow them to be relaxed and calm in high stress situations.
  2. Self-Discipline: Martial arts helps develop the self-discipline that children need to succeed. By working their way through the belt system they understand that nothing comes easy, and when you’re learning there is a definite process for everything. Self-control is consistently and positively reinforced and rewarded.
  3. Realistic Goals: The belt system and the nature of friendship in the organization shows that goals are realistic, attainable, and that skills can be learned. There is very little that can replicate the pride of achievement and attainment.
  4. Self-Respect: self-respect simply means that you know that you are behaving with honor, dignity, and pride in yourself. Self-respect is instrumental in keeping children aware of their value as human beings and helping them to avoid toxic situations and relationships.
  5. Communication SkillsCommunication isn’t just using your ears or mouth – or your thumbs when you’re texting – but a set of quantifiable skills. Teaching and learning within a martial arts framework requires excellent skills in communication on the part of the instructor, who then teaches them to the younger protégés. Communication skills are very much learn by doing, and comprise more than just talking and listening.

We sincerely hope that your child has not been bullied, and that they never are.

It doesn’t build character; if anything it actively harms character development in children.

If they have been bullied, I hope that you will consider allowing them to experience the martial arts as a healing and instructional experience.
