FROM ALLEN DEPENA
I’m Allen DePena, Head Instructor here at Zentai Martial Arts.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
NEED HELP IN ANY OF THESE AREAS?
They have trouble focusing and don’t look at you when you speak to them.
They get angry easily and small things may cause them to lose control.
They lack the discipline to follow through on tasks without being reminded.
PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
Kids that are 5-6 years old have slightly more control than younger kids, but they still have a lot to learn when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions. They’re intellectually curious, but they need to learn in a disciplined setting.
Our program gives kids the tools they need to succeed later in life. They learn the importance of self-discipline and control while building on the basic martial arts skills they learned in the Early SKILLZ program.
RESULTS AND GROWTH WITH EVERY CLASS!
Basic SKILLZ teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts moves.
PHYSICAL FITNESS AND BALANCE
When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they’re in motion.
The basic martial arts skills taught in the Skillz program help them build muscle and improve their coordination.
COMPLEX MEMORY SKILLS
At this age, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also be unable to tell their left from their right.
Our program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and to know how to follow left and right commands without hesitation.
STAY IN CONTROL
Five and six-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they’re excited – and to shut down when they’re sad or scared.
In our Basic SKILLZ program, they are taught to maintain control even when they are excited – and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.
Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don’t handle losing very well.
In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.
We tried a few other martial arts groups for our boys, but Zentai was the clear winner from the start. The kids specifically asked for a program with structure that would clearly teach them martial arts skills while leveling up their belts. I'm amazed during every class when I see them respond to commands with so much focus and passion. Zentai has helped them build up their confidence and taught them so much already. And they have a blast! We highly recommend Zentai!
Allen and Naomi, you guys have truly started something special here. I can see it already! The energy and attention you give each child is remarkable.
We absolutely love this place! My son started coming for the after school program at the beginning of last year. He absolutely loves it and looks forward to going everyday. He has ADHD and we had a hard time finding a program that fits his needs until we stumbled upon Zentai. Best after school program out there for kids of all types and ages! We highly recommend it!
My kids really enjoy going to Karate! Im very impressed with how friendly they are and how they handle the children!
What amazing place! They are genuinely passionate about helping people. Kids love them, great environment for parents. And the Martial Arts is real. If you are looking for self defense for yourself or kids, this is the place.
The best marital arts ever. I love it my son is in the after school program. And I am so happy for him.
