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.

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.

Will martial arts help your kids this school year?

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them the tools they need to survive the school experience.   The benefits associated with taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts, students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies

Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear. However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
