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.
STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They always seem to take the easy way out when presented with anything difficult.
They make poor choices and tend not to think things through.
They put their friends and social obligations ahead of their family.
PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
Parenting kids in their pre-teen and early teenage years is its own special challenge. Kids at this age have huge potential, but an equally huge tendency to get mired down in laziness and posturing for their friends. It can be frustrating for parents to watch their kids waste their abilities – and parents are often anxious for a way to get their kids moving in a positive direction. When kids resist parental involvement and give their friends more consideration than their families, it can be distressing for parents.
The key to getting through to kids at this age is to hold their feet to the fire when it comes to putting in the necessary work to achieve their goals. They need firm instruction and regular goals to keep them on track.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Our Extreme SKILLZ program is specifically designed to help kids between the ages of 10 and 14 to achieve their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social goals. We teach kids physical dexterity, versatility, and precision while also helping them to trust their instincts and build their strength.
DILLIGENCE WITH CHALLENGES
Kids learn the importance of doing things well.
At this age, kids may be prone to take the easy way out of challenges.
Our Extreme SKILLZ program teaches them to value precision and to pay attention to details instead of settling for a sloppy solution to their problems.
BETTER DECISION MAKING
We give kids the tools to make smart decisions.
Preteens and teens sometimes make poor decisions because they lack the judgment to see the big picture.
Extreme SKILLZ classes teach kids to make smarter decisions by showing them the dangers of jumping to conclusions.
Students learn to evaluate their motives and pay attention to their emotions.
Kids sometimes react without thinking about their motivations.
In the Extreme SKILLZ program, students learn to understand their true emotional motivation and to understand the difference between a good motivation and a bad one.
SELF BELIEF & CONFIDENCE
We teach kids not to worry what others think of them.
Peer pressure plays a big role as kids get older, and they sometimes struggle with worrying about what others think.
We teach kids to care less about what other people think of them and more about what they think of themselves.
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.
