Family Martial Arts Center is known as the best martial arts school in our area for children of all ages. For children ages 5-12, Master Jim Saemann is the primary instructor. Master Jim is assisted by many of the instructors whose biographies appear elsewhere on this web site. Master Jim believes the best time for children to learn life's traditional values is when they are in elementary school.
Beginners in our program start to develop many physical qualities, including endurance, flexibility, coordination, balance, agility, speed, strength, weight control, and self defense. We also develop mental qualities such as concentration, focus, discipline, respect, courtesy, honesty, integrity, and perseverance. Our students learn from the beginning that martial arts is for self defense only.
Our training area consists of a large padded floor, with a parents' observation area and toddlers playroom for younger siblings. We have bathrooms, changing rooms, and showers. Parents are encouraged, but not required, to watch their children's classes.
The schedule for Children Beginners is shown below. It is best if students train at least two times per week.
Monday 4:30 PM, Thursday 5:15 PM, and Saturday 9:45 AM
There is a link on our Home Page called Free Trial. When you click on that link, you will see our current special offer for new students. The trial program is an excellent way for your child to try our program and ensure you are comfortable with our program. We're confident that after just a few weeks, you will see tremendous changes in your child. Better concentration, better self esteem, and better behavior are just some of the changes parents report to us all the time.
