🎁 FREE BONUS! 4 Tips on Building Your Child’s Confidence
A FEW WORDS
FROM MICHAEL EVANS
I’m Michael Evans, co-owner of Skillz of Patchogue.
As an 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 SKILLZ 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.
In fact, martial arts training isn’t our goal at all. It is simply a tool that helps us engage the kids as we work directly on helping them with their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social development.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body, and character.
That’s because SKILLZ provides instant positive feedback (We call it “Teaching in 4D”). 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 SKILLZ classes 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 child development classes.
DOES YOUR 10-14 YEAR OLD
STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They are very smart but tend to make boneheaded decisions that sometimes get them in trouble.
They are all over the emotional spectrum, and their moods shift at the slightest provocation.
They often bow to peer pressure because they care too much about what their friends think.
By understanding the stages of development of 10 and 14-year olds, we were able to select 8 age-appropriate skills that make up the Extreme SKILLZ Program:
We take Martial Arts training to a whole new level! We use basic elements of a traditional Martial Arts curriculum to build skills that are appropriate for 10 to 14-year olds. This means that your child will learn and grow at a pace that is not too easy, nor too challenging. The best part is the Extreme SKILLZ program will equip your child with skills that they will utilize in every area of their life!
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
The solution we found is to provide tweens and teens with their own program that targets their unique needs and abilities based on their stage of development in a manner that adapts to their adventurous attitude and youthful nature while at the same time building skills that set them up for success.
Kids between 10 and 14 typically have great technique and agility, but they can be lazy which leads to sloppiness.
We expect them to initially be sloppy on things that are easy physically.
The goal of our program is to get them to understand their potential if they pay attention the intricate details. We normally bypass the basics elements of physical development and jump right into the complicated details.
Tweens and teens are extremely smart. Their critical thinking skills are top-notch, but their decision-making skills are typically the exact opposite, and that is why most adults treat them as a child.
We expect them to initially make choices that are easy as compared to applying thought and effort.
The goal of our program is to get them to see the bigger picture and apply their intellect.
Thanks to science, kids at this stage of development are typically all over the emotional spectrum. This is more prominent in boys than girls.
We expect their efforts to be based on what they think is cool.
The goal of our program is to help them apply intrinsic motivation and realize their true potential. Our goal is to also help them improve their decision-making skills with drills that challenge their reaction time.
These kids care about what their peers think. If something is cool, then they will put more effort into it.
We expect them to initially hold back if they are uncomfortable as a defense mechanism.
The goal of our program is to help them excel at everything they do, especially in front of a crowd.
My 6 year old son has been attending Ninja class at 4GK since August 2018. He loves it and I do too! He loves the skills and games and I love the discipline he is learning. I’ve spoken with a child-behavior doc about what he gets to do in class and the doc was *thrilled*. It’s clear that he believes in the philosophies Sifu and Miss Heidi teach about the importance of play and physical activity for children for all aspects of their development.
My two sons have been coming here since December 2016. They absolutely love it & have THRIVED since coming! The older one suffers from anxiety & general fear, he has since built up tremendous confidence & has learned to verbalize any issues he may be having. The younger one is a ball of energy that needed direction & a release, he has achieved focus & better listening skills. The staff is AMAZING! They are welcoming, accommodating & listen to any issues you have whether it be with them, the class or your children. I could go to any of them & speak with them about ANYTHING & feel very comfortable doing so. Si Fu teaches the class in a low-key, fun manner that has the children engaged AND having fun at the same time, it’s not the typical militant style. We received a military discount since my husband is a former marine AND … They run a monthly themed Parents Night Out that gives parents a break without their kids from 7:30-10:00! I am thrilled that we found them & highly suggest to anybody looking for a martial arts school to check them out!
My oldest daughter has been coming here for a year. We fell in love immediately after seeing how wonderful the staff is with working with children of all ages. My second daughter was dying to be in a class also. As soon as she turned 3 we gave it a try and she has blossomed. Seemingly shy I was curious to see how her first class type activity would be. She loved it. Just waiting for daughter number three to be old enough because she is only two, but already feels like she belongs. We absolutely love it.
Great team! My daughter loves the school. She has learned so much since she started a year ago. I am so happy I found this place. I am so grateful for Ms. Heidi, Sifu Mike and all the team. Their love and dedication is shown in every class. Good job!!
