My son has been attending Cesar Kai for a little less than a year now and both him and I love it. He has learned so much in a very small amount of time, and has improved in areas we have struggled with before enrolling him. His teachers are awesome, very friendly, attentive, and just the right amount of strict, which is exactly what I was looking for. I'm am looking forward to his spending many more years learning, and growing here.

My son has been attending Cesar Kai for a little over a year. Besides learning about martial arts, he truly enjoys the special events and weeks they have throughout the year. He needs invited a classmate to the most recent buddy week and they both enjoyed having that experience together.

There are also parents night out, day camps and summer camps as well. I have to say my son loves these events possibly even more than the weekly classes. He has made so many new friends and LOVES all of the wonderful Sensai's who teach. They really care and connect with all of the kids. Also Cesar Kai is very inclusive and very patient with the students. It doesn't matter what type of ability you have, they try their hardest to make it the best experience for each member.

Finally it's not just about the physical movements, they also nurture good morals and character building which is so important. We love Cesar Kai.

Went today to sign my girls up for classes and was very nice to see all the kids enjoying themselves and listening to the instructors. The instructors were very patient with the kids. my girls were so excited and loved their one on one that they didn't want to leave. I would definitely recommend Cesar-Kai to other parents who are interested in signing up their kids.

This martial arts school is one of the best I have ever seen for children. They have a great curriculum for exercise, self confidence, and learning about respecting themselves and others. The only con is the tuition. It is costly when you have multiple children. This is the first children's place I ever encountered that does not offer a multi-child discount. Other than that, super awesome!!!

We have had a fantastic experience at Cesar Kai. The teachers have a great way of connecting with the kids and making the class fun while still developing their skills. It has been great to watch our son change during his time here, and the look on his face the first time he tested up to a new belt was priceless.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

We have had a fantastic experience at Cesar Kai. The teachers have a great way of connecting with the kids and making the class fun while still developing their skills. It has been great to watch our son change during his time here, and the look on his face the first time he tested up to a new belt was priceless.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
