Preparation for School
OUR KNEE HIGH NINJA PROGRAM PREPARES STUDENTS FOR LEARNING IN A CLASSROOM SETTING BY TEACHING THE IMPORTANCE OF ETIQUETTE AND SELF-RESPECT
Children learn to carefully listen through positive support from our Amazing Supportive Team of Instructors. Students will progress to different belts and ranks when they memorize the current curriculum. This will enhance their memory which will translate to better grades and better focus in the classroom. As students get older, the amount of time allocated to reflect on their day at the beginning of class will increase to help develop concentration, and self discipline. This time to reflect also provides an opportunity to give attention to their thoughts. Students will also learn the power of thoughts, both positive and negative and the tools we can utilize to help control our thoughts. Our program makes the transition into pre-school, Guelph Family Martial Arts teaches our Knee High Ninjas modesty, courtesy, respect, focus and discipline. Our instructors also teach that there are times for fun and there are times to focus, this is done throughout our classes. These early formative years are essential for success. Our program develops students physically and mentally.

THE REWARDS OF KARATE, GOAL SETTING AND ACHIEVEMENT
ENCOURAGEMENT AND PRAISE FOR A JOB WELL DONE OR A GOAL ACHIEVED IS ESSENTIAL, AND IS SOMETHING EVERYONE NEEDS; ESPECIALLY CHILDREN IN THEIR FORMATIVE YEARS.
Our program allows an outlet for personal satisfaction, as students correctly perform martial arts techniques, with constant support and motivation from our amazing instructor team. Students will progress through belt ranks, which offers an opportunity for goal setting and goal achievement. The benefits of our program extend far beyond only physical aspects, our program will develop students mentally and socially. The benefits of our program are life changing, we empower, motivate and inspire students to thrive to their full potential everywhere in their lives and can perform the specific moves for that level. This goal achievement offers a feeling of success and reward for our ninjas. Once our ninjas reach a new belt level, they will strive to improve again to reach their next belt level, so that they can feel personal satisfaction again. Through positive reinforcement this teaches students the key to achieving a goal is through focus and dedication. For a student to progress to the next belt, they must be displaying respectful behaviour at school and at home, working together we ensure our ninjas are being great students in our martial arts school but also in life. Children at this age are full of energy, direct that energy into a positive family friendly environment.
Martial Arts Improves Grades
OUR MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM HOLDS THE ABILITY UNLIKE OTHER SPORTS TO IMPROVE GRADES. MANY OF OUR STUDENTS ARE "A" STUDENTS AND THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENCE.
Our program makes better grades a reality as focus is worked on throughout all classes, as a result improving attention span, raising concentration levels and helps them set and achieve goals. All of these skills are essential for success at school and in our martial arts school. Students are motivated and supported when they display focus. Our classes start with a moment of silence, which offers students the chance to reflect on the day. That even if a day did not go well or was stressful, we make sure this will not affect the student's workout. Helping establish that a previous event should not carry on and ruin our entire day but should be left in the past.
Students increase in age the time left to reflect on the day increases to help progress concentration and become conscious of giving attention to their thoughts, as our thoughts become physical. Throughout our programs we teach proper breathing, which is important in physical activity in stressful situations. These breathing exercises help students calm themselves and aid in a student's ability to deal with daily demands including tests, homework and competitive sports; as well as many demands associated with peer pressure and stress associated with this. Therapists all over the world believe that individuals equipped with proper breathing techniques can combat stress, anxiety and daily demands with ease and efficacy.
