There are a wealth of benefits that come from healthy self-confidence, When students work towards their goals and see themselves succeed, they begin to feel empowered with self-confidence. In this way, martial arts teaches children that hard work and focus can help them accomplish what they set out to do. Kids learn how to work with their own strengths and weaknesses and believe in their own abilities. They grow with self-assurance, a quality which makes them more confident in other aspects of life.


Concentration is like a muscle that needs regular exercise to grow stronger. Martial arts provides kids with strategies that help improve their ability to focus and maintain their attention. School work will require students to be able to concentrate for extended periods of time. Participating in martial arts requires even more concentration. This ability to concentrate and sustain attention is crucially important. As students learn and improve, they will grow life skills such as self-confidence and positive self-esteem.

At American Karate Studios one of the fundamental character traits we reinforce is that of respect. We discuss respect in three areas: respect for ourselves, respect for others, and respect for our surroundings. The most important thing in reinforcing respect is consistency. At American Karate we make respect a part of our students’ daily routine so that it becomes a habit. It is of utmost importance that everyone reinforces this respect so that our students can learn from example. It is important for our students to remember that respect is earned. In order to become respected, you must first show respect for yourself, others and your surroundings.
