Martial Arts Training

In national surveys, most kids and teens say that bullying happens at school. The confidence that comes from learning martial arts can be an effective tool to teaching kids and adolescents how to avoid a confrontation all together. In fact, training in martial arts leads to respect for self and others. It will also build confidence, discipline and a positive attitude. At Choe,s Hapkido Flowery Branch our programs are geared not only for self-defense but also respect, discipline, and self confidence. Such skills are beneficial on multiple levels and kids enjoy the routine and status of being Martial Artists. Both boys and girls can have a great time building strength in both their bodies and mind at . With social networking, texting, and mobile phones adding barriers to one-on-one contact, teaching children to be confident and respectful in a martial arts setting, with their peers, has become even more valuable. In the days of the Xbox and the Playstation, and with most PE programs in the public school system being drastically cut or eliminated all together Choe's Hapkido Flowery Branch helps to fill this void. Through our program not only do the children develop confidence they increase their focus leading to better grades. The UC Berkley admissions office views the martial arts as an excellent extracurricular activity. Martial arts training is both an excellent physical activity and that training can improve academic performance.
