Do you want your child to get better Grades?

Martial arts classes offer much more than physical training; they’re a transformative experience that can significantly impact a child’s academic performance. By participating in martial arts, children learn the values of discipline, focus, and perseverance. These core principles are directly transferable to their academic work, helping turn C’s into B’s and B’s into A’s. Studies have shown that the structured environment of martial arts training improves students’ ability to concentrate, manage their time effectively, and approach challenges with a positive mindset. This enhanced focus and discipline not only lead to better grades but also to improved behavior in the classroom and a greater enjoyment of the learning process. Through martial arts, children develop a sense of responsibility for their actions and their learning, fostering an intrinsic motivation to excel in all areas of life.

Martial Arts: The Journey of Self-Discovery

Martial arts teach more than self-defense; they foster self-awareness, discipline, and a deep respect for oneself and others. Through each class, children learn the importance of precision, grace, and mindfulness, developing not only their physical abilities but also their mental acuity and emotional resilience.

Discipline: Cultivating Focus and Respect

Discipline in martial arts is about self-control and a dedication to personal improvement. This practice instills in children the importance of focus, respect for the learning process, and a commitment to achieving their goals, lessons that enrich their academic and personal lives.

Hard Work: Building Perseverance and Achievement

Martial arts emphasize the value of hard work and the belief that persistence leads to success. Students learn to set and pursue goals, understanding that progress is the result of effort and resilience, instilling a lifelong appreciation for the rewards of dedication and perseverance.

I've trained at various martial arts schools over 20 years and have never felt more welcomed or confident in the skills learned. The respect here spans all walks of life and ages. Marco instills Jiujitsu & Muay Thai fundamentals, adding advanced techniques for growth. His willingness to repeat techniques and his sense of humor make NJMA feel like home. As a father, knowing my daughter is safe and eager to learn here solidified our choice for NJMA.
