Are you looking for a fun, engaging activity for your child?

Want something that will strengthen your child physically and mentally?

If you answered “yes” to these questions, kids martial arts in Ann Arbor might be right for your child.

Martial arts is much more than just fighting! It’s an activity that engages the mind, body, and spirit and aides in self-development.

Here’s what martial arts can provide for your child:

  1. Confidence ‒ The dojo is a very accepting learning environment.  Your child will receive praise, encouragement, and help when necessary. They increase their skills in a non-competitive way that focuses on pushing themselves to be the best martial artist they can be.
  2. Discipline ‒ Martial arts is heavily structured. It focuses on perfecting routines through repeated practice. JMAC has clear and enforced rules about behavior that everyone must follow. Children can latch on to this discipline and use it outside the dojo!
  3. Focus ‒ Moves are taught together in a sequence and are often very specific. Remembering these moves and executing them properly builds mental focus. This all takes place in a high energy level environment with varied tempos that lets your kid feel the fun as much as the learning. 
  4. Ability to learn at own pace ‒ Your child can improve as quickly or as gradually as they’d like! Belts act as specific goals they can complete and are great motivating tools to encourage their growth. 
  5. Respect ‒ When respect is taught in a fun, energetic way, kids learn it much more effectively! We try to earn respect rather than demand it, which can help with disrespectful children.
