Why Choose MKG Madison for your child?

Here are just a few of the benefits that MKG Madison's Youth Martial Art Program can provide!

Developing Social Skills
Learning what respect is and how to show it one of the most important things that we can teach our children. Our definition of respect is, “Being thankful for who people are and what they do.” Students will learn how to show respect those that in Authority, for their peer and themselves. Just knowing how to respect the people around them will teach them how to interact with people in a positive way.

Improved Focus .
Martial Arts has always been a great source for mental discipline. Students will learn to control their minds focusing on paying attention to complex movements so that they will be about the recreate them in their practice. This skills will help student to carry their new found mental attention to other parts of their life; school, home and in other social settings

Improved Confidence
Student will develop new skill that they had previously though wasn’t possible. By continually breaking through those mental and physical barriers students very quickly realize that the have the ability to accomplish most anything they put their minds too. Our goal is to show how this confidence can be a part of every other aspect of their life, whether it is believing that they can get an A on their next test or the knowledge they have some tools to defend themselves if necessary.

Physical Fitness.
If you are like most families, you may have a hard time getting your child away from the “Screens” ( tv, computer, video games, phones). Martial arts training is a fun way to help young student realize that fitness can be fun and useful. Our classes are physically challenging and will develop important attribute like: Stamina, Strength, Speed, Balance, Agility, Just to name a few

Cognitive Fitness
Also our classes will be mentally challenging. Our classes also encourage cognitive development by teaching problem solving skills and using martial art drills the force the student to use both sides of their body equally, which in turn cause them to use both sides of their brain equally.  Even if things get get hard physically or frustrating mentally that they CAN DO IT, if the just never give up! Perseverance is the key

Cultural Awareness
I think we can all agree that part of being a positive member of our society is one of the main goals for our kids as parents. This includes understanding and respecting the differences and similarities of the people that surround us. The MKG Madison Kids Martial Program is a Multicultural Martial Art Program. The arts that we share come from several different cultural backgrounds.
