To a Caring Parent,
Hi, my name is Larry Batista.
I'd like to tell you the stories of four kinds of kids that I've seen
walk through the doors of my dojo time and time again.
Then, afterward, I'd like to tell you about how this program transformed
their lives. And the joy their parents got from seeing the incredible
(Please note: On this page I say “he” a lot when talking
about kids – but that's just to keep things simple. Martial Arts is just as much
for girls as it is for boys!)
So without further ado…
Story #1: "ADD Kid"
Johnny could never sit still in class.
His teachers thought he was
just a "wild kid". The other students
would get distracted by him,
and they'd have trouble focusing too.
He was smart – as smart as they
come – but he just couldn't sit
still for the life of him.
If only he could focus his energy into
doing one thing at a time...
Story #2: "Too Easy Going"
It wasn't that Rebecca wasn't smart –
she just never applied herself
She was a bit "too" easy going. She
didn't have anything that she
was truly passionate about.
As a result, her grades suffered. She
could easily make As, but she
just didn't pay attention.
She needed something that would
really stir her up – and awaken
Story #3: "I asked you 10 times already!"
Rick never does anything the first time
he's asked. Whether its homework,
cleaning, taking the dog out –
anything – it never gets done.
His parents spend countless hours,
and tons of energy, just getting him
to do simple things.
As a result there's always tension in
Story #4: "The Bully"
Every school has a bully. They prey
on smaller kids, and kids with low
Jim was the second kind of kid. He
was shy, and just didn't have much
The bully at his school, Todd, always
picked on him. Jim just took it. He
never stood up for himself, because
he didn't have the confidence to…
Even though Johnny, Rick, Jim, and Rebecca are fictional – their stories
are based off of very real ones.
In fact, I can't tell you how many times
parents have come in and told me almost these exact stories.
Word for word.
But after just a few weeks of martial arts, this is what happens…
Clear Focus - In martial arts, we have kids do one thing
at a time. For younger kids, and kids with severe ADD, they may only do
one thing for 30 seconds – but for that 30 seconds that's all they
Then, the better and better they get at focusing, the longer we have them
focus for. Eventually, kids might focus the entire session on just one
exercise or activity.
And they never get bored or antsy.
Before you know it, they do this at home too. They focus on their homework…
on their chores… on conversations with you… and anything else
they put their mind to.
Determined to Succeed – From Day 1 in martial arts your
child sets goals, and accomplishes them. The more and more he does this
– the more ambitious he becomes.
Eventually he learns to set higher goals – and he learns to go after
them with everything he's got.
He learns that fulfillment and respect are earned through completing challenges.
Because of this, kids who go through martial arts are much more likely to
succeed later in life as well. A recent study showed that 63% of black
belts become college graduates!
They then go on to live wonderful, fulfilling lives. And then they pass
these principles onto their own children.
Finally Paying Attention – Parents of children with
attention problems breathe sighs of relief after just a few short weeks.
That's because in martial arts – we teach kids to look people in the eyes
when they're being spoken to. We teach them that this is how you show
people you're listening, and paying attention.
After just a few short weeks, kids naturally begin doing this at home.
And in school.
Parents and teachers often look at each other with wide-eyes when they
reflect on the changes. They can't believe how much better their children
Completing Tasks the First Time He's Asked – In martial arts, we have just a
few simple rules. One of those rules is that when your child is asked to
do something – he does it the first time.
We never yell at kids, or scold them, if they don't do this. But every kid
does it because he sees the other kids in the class doing it too. And he
wants to make friends and be a part of the group.
It's usually a matter of a couple weeks before kids start doing this at
home, too. I can't tell you how many parents have thanked me profusely
when it starts to happen.
For parents of children who have a hard time following directions – this
is truly a blessing.
Self-Respect – When it comes to bullies, kids in
martial arts don't back down. They have the confidence to look a bully in the
eyes, and stand their ground.
This is what nearly always happens…
The bully gets scared and backs down!
It happens 9 times out of 10. And for the 1 time out of 10 the bully
doesn't back down – your child has the tools to defend himself. And if
necessary, he'll be able to get away, and seek out an authority figure.
Most confrontations can be talked through. Occasionally, however, words
aren't enough. For either situation your child will be prepared.
No one will be able to hurt him, or take anything away from him.
Weight loss – It's easy these days for kids to not
exercise. As a result, many children experience weight problems at
a young age.
Martial Arts is an amazing form of exercise – Your child
will be active the entire time. But there's no pressure on him to do
anything he can't.
We'll encourage him to do his best – but this isn't boot camp or anything.
Most importantly, he'll have a ton of fun.
And if he happens to be overweight – martial arts will help him get down to a
healthy weight. This reduces risk for many health problems that can
occur now, and later on in life.
It also increases energy, alertness, and overall happiness.
He'll never feel better.
There are honestly countless other
benefits kids get with martial arts.
But rather than tell you about them myself –
just listen to what these parents had to say…
“A significant change, in only 2 short weeks…”
Gary has a bit of a temper, but I’ve already noticed the change. He's
more respectful to me. And his teachers can't believe it! He calls them
“ma'am” and “sir”. No other kid in his class
shows their teachers this much respect.
It really makes me feel great, and I feel like I've done a great
thing for myself and my child by enrolling him in this martial arts class.
- Alice Thompson (Gary's Mom)
“She just can't wait for 'martial arts days'…”
At first I wasn't sure if Ashley would like the program. After all,
she's only 6, so she never really sticks to anything.
Boy was I wrong! She gets extremely upset if we ever have to miss a
class now. And I can tell she's more focused, more attentive, and just all
around happier after starting this program.
- Cynthia Snyder (Ashley's Mom)
“The bully backed down.”
When Brian got off the bus today, and got in the car, he couldn't stop
talking about how he stood up to this bully who had been picking on him
for weeks! He said the bully backed down, and everyone saw it! I got so
choked up that he looked at me and asked me why I was crying.
I just told him I was so proud of him.
- Bill Gray (Brian's Dad)
“Unbelievable! He did his homework the first time I asked!”
Hey, I just wanted to tell you that Michael did his homework today the
first time I asked him! I'm still in shock! I know it's because of what
he learned in Karate class.
You have put together an incredible program. Thank you so much.
- Marsha Humphrey (Michael's mom)
“Will martial arts make my kid violent?”
Absolutely not! We don't teach kids how to kick
and punch so they can go down the street and
beat up the neighbor's kid.
Instead, we teach kids self-defense as a tool for
personal growth and development.
Kids learn to treat others as they want to be treated.
They learn to respect all living things – from their
parents to pets.
Often, kids who were violent before they joined our
class changed, and became non-violent.
So no, martial arts won't make your child violent!
“What if my child's not athletic?
Will he have a hard time?”
Often children who don't find success in team sports
come to martial arts. And they love it.
That's because with martial arts you go at your own pace.
See, team sports actually harm the self-esteem of
children who aren't very athletic. When they don't
perform well, the other kids can be pretty nasty. And
this can leave some serious scars on their self-esteem.
But with martial arts, they can't let anyone down. Everyone
goes at their own pace. Some kids learn quicker than
others – but the children who advance quickly are not
valued more than the kids who advance slowly.
Everyone is greatly encouraged – regardless of his or
her athletic level.
“Will my child learn a talent that
they can be proud of?”
Many children find pride in being able to do “cool”
things like dancing, juggling, singing, playing an
instrument, etc., etc., etc.
I've seen many kids enter talent shows, and show
off their martial arts skills. The crowd is blown away
There's simply something fascinating and exciting
about watching martial arts. And your child will take
great pride in his abilities.
“What age is appropriate for martial arts?”
We have programs for kids who are 4 years old all the
way to teenagers. And we even have programs
So to be honest – every age is appropriate. No child
is too young or too old. We have a class that fits
“Will my child get hurt?”
I've had children come to my program for years
without ever obtaining a single injury.
This is actually the case with most children.
Have children gotten injured in my martial arts class?
Yes, some have. But the injuries were no different
than those which kids who play baseball and other
In the words of a parent I recently spoke with,
“The instructors pay attention to detail when it
comes to safety.”
From padded floors, to proper gear, to step-by-
step instruction – we do everything in our power
to insure your child's safety. I can't guarantee
your child won't be injured – but I can tell you
that almost no children receive injuries in my
And that's because we take your child's safety
“Will my child have fun? Will he want
to stick with the program?”
When parents take their kids to appointments –
normally the parent has to run around and do
everything in their power to get their children to
the appointment on time.
“Hurry up!” they shout, “We'll be late!” (How
many times have you said this?)
But with martial arts, something fascinating happens…
Often the children are the ones yelling these
things! They don't want to be late, and they never
want to miss a class.
In fact, I know of many parents who use martial arts as
an incentive to get chores done. If the kids are
good, do their chores, and do their homework –
they get martial arts as a reward.
That's because your child will have a ton of fun.
He'll be laughing and smiling throughout the
entire class. And because He'll constantly be
setting and reaching goals – He'll want to stick
with the program.
It will become a part of his life as if it was
“Is martial arts just for boys? Or can my girl
take martial arts too?”
On this page I've said “he” a lot. But the truth is,
there are just as many girls in many of our classes
as there are boys.
Girls love martial arts just as much, and get the same
fulfillment out of it as boys do.
Also, if I've learned anything in my years of
teaching, its that girls are just as tough as boys.
Many are even tougher!
So you don't have to worry about your little girl
getting hurt, or feeling scared because she'll be
practicing with boys. In fact, the boys may even
be the ones who are scared.
Now, something worth mentioning...
Like with anything, martial arts is not for every child.
9 times out of 10 parents do find that martial arts is the perfect fit for their children.
But in the 1 situation out of 10 where its simply not a great fit…
If after a few classes you think this isn't the right fit for you and your child,
simply let us know and we'll gladly refund you in full.
That way you can use that same money to invest in something else for your child.
But chances are you will love it here. And so will your kid.
Either way – you're more than welcome to try it out risk free.
