CMK is a good way for kids to learn discipline in class as well show their enthusiastic side outside of class such as on events like KNO (Kids Night Out)
I am more than proud to say I am a � black belt instructor of this fantastic school and teach such marvelous and rapidly evolving students.
This school has such a terrific amount of positive energy and enthusiasm, and is a great school to learn from in self discipline, defense, and morals that will inspire anyone and everyone of all ages to be better than you already are now.

I have and over active boy and Kioshi takes his free time for private lessons which I really really appreciate. All his students are very sweet and loving as well and they also help with my boy too sometimes which is too cute! I'm blessed to have found this place. And I am also seeing a big improvement in my boy ever since I enrolled him!

So so good! My son Ashton LOVES it - he’s shy and not very social but he’s opening up and listening and learning so well! So grateful for finding Crescent Moon :)

My son started almost two months ago. I got for him just the trial because i wasn't sure if i was going after the trial since the location is like ten minutes from home and at the beginning my son didn't want to go but after the first class he doesn't want to miss any class. He really loves to be there. Before the trial ended i was ready to enroll him for his classes. When he got his white belt he got by mail a postcard from Mr. Mendez and that motivated my son even more. All the staff is very friendly and helpful. Little by little he is improving in discipline, respect. Thank you

Training at Crescent Moon Karate is great for Alexander for many reasons. Morals, discipline, fitness, the ability to handle himself physically and defend himself are taught. The classes are also fun and entertaining to watch. If I had more time in my schedule, I’d train too. This place was recommended to me by friends and I’d recommend it highly.

What Parents Should Know About Martial Arts

What Parents Should Know About Martial Arts

For parents who haven’t had much experience with martial arts, there may be a number of assumptions made about the practice. Whether it has to do with the perceived violence in the sport, a fear of injury, or the seeming lack of benefits that comes with practicing martial arts, there are a number of things that parents should know about it before deciding whether or not it’s fit for their child.

Here are some things parents should consider about martial arts.

 

It Can Be Valuable for Their Physical and Mental Development

Martial arts is an effective way to ensure that your child is being active, as it requires students to dedicate their time to fitness, making it an effective way to combat obesity. Beyond that though, martial arts offers a number of mental benefits too. With all forms, discipline is a key principle, requiring students to overcome obstacles and practice self-control. Students of martial arts also commonly build confidence through progressing through ranks and achieving mental, physical, and emotional growth.

Learn more about martial arts’ many benefits here.

 

It Discourages Violence

Contrary to popular belief, the principles of most types of martial arts generally discourage violence. The point of martial arts is to defend oneself as opposed to relying on and resorting to violence. Martial arts schools focus on respect, encouraging conflict resolution. Some schools even enforce suspensions or expulsions, in the event that a student becomes involved in a physical altercation that wasn’t due to a self-defense situation.

 

Martial Arts Can Help Them Succeed in School

Many teachings within all styles of martial arts are lessons that students can directly apply outside of class and into other areas in their lives, with such things as self-motivation, self-control, and respect acting as fundamentals to the principles of martial arts. Students’ memorization skills are also tested, as they are required to learn a variety of skills, techniques, forms, and philosophies. This can help students learn better in school, as their recall is tested as they demonstrate their knowledge on the spot during testing, sparring, and at competitions.

Working with parents is one of the most important things for any martial arts school. Make sure you meet the instructors, watch a class or two, check reviews online, talk to parents of kids who attend the school you are considering. Ask them how they like it and if they are getting value for their investment and attend a free trial lesson before committing to any type of enrollment package.
