Lightning Tikes is a fun, exciting, and interactive year-round program
to teach children of all ages to STAY SAFE!
Kids Martial Arts Classes
Empowered Martial Arts applies a curriculum that uses traditional martial arts techniques to teach self-defense and leadership skills to children. This unique Bully/Stranger Awareness & Avoidance Program teaches children to detect potential threats to their safety and then to safely and actively avoid situations, people and locations that might be harmful to their well-being.
The Leadership Program emphasizes values such as respect, honesty, focus, self-control, perseverance, and confidence. These values empower children to have a healthy self-image, respect for themselves and others, and to truly succeed as a champion in life!
Many people ask if we teach traditional martial arts such as Karate or Tae Kwon Do. We do incorporate techniques from these traditional arts, but we feel that the sport of martial arts is not for every child.
On the other hand, all children can benefit from basic self-defense. Our children need to be able to recognize a bully, know what to do if they encounter a bully or if they see someone else being bullied, and how NOT to become a bully! Kids need to know what to do if they are in danger and what to do to attract the attention of others that can provide immediate help.
In addition, it is critical for children to also know how to show respect to themselves and others. Knowing how to use self-control, they are able to achieve many things. The lessons learned from Martial Arts can be applied to everyday life. Every child needs to know that focus is important when it comes to breaking a board or solving a math problem.
Through these programs, children are taught how to speak effectively in front of others and to recognize the importance of honesty, even in difficult decisions or in the face of punishment.
