Why should your child take Martial Arts?
Brave and Confident Children Are Less Likely To Be Bullied
Through our structured reward program (tips & belts) and consistent positive feedback, our complete Martial Arts Program is the way to increase your child's confidence and strengthen it on a consistent basis. What will classify your child is how they deal with challenging situations they come across in life. Getting them involved in our Martial Arts program will give them the confidence to handle themselves properly at school, and as they mature in life.
Martial Arts Training Keeps Your Child Physically Active
With less physical education requirements in schools, the ever increasing attractiveness of video games and the restrictions of some competitive sports allowing for equal time for each child on the team is leading to various concerning statistics including increased obesity and diabetes in children. Plus, as a parent you have to contend with the persistent abundance of junk and fast food.
The Academy of Martial Arts is the next step in altering your child's viewpoint on life. The physical health benefits are only part of it. The mental discipline and self-assurance gained will help you and your child to continue to make better decisions in life.
Children with strong mental discipline are less likely to submit to peer pressure and more likely to do better in school. In fact, many parents and teachers report a dramatic improvement in grades after their child joins the academy of martial arts.

TAI CHI CLASSES (http://academyofmartialarts.ca/taichi.html)
Gentle Movements of Tai Chi
The gentle art of relaxation for peace of mind and stress relief!
Why is Tai Chi so popular these days?
And why do 180 MILLION people worldwide practice Tai Chi every day?
It is because those who do practice every day have a longer, more active life than those who don't, and their health potential increases dramatically.
Other exercises may dissipate your energy, while Tai Chi accumulates it, leaving you feeling refreshed when you finish. The slow, dance-like speed of Tai Chi creates balance, flexibility and calmness. With an emphasis on deep breathing and using mental imagery, Tai Chi integrates your mind with your body, and is very effective at relieving stress.
Recent medical studies confirm what these Tai Chi practitioners have known for centuries - that just 20 minutes a day of Tai Chi can dramatically improve your balance (and significantly cut the risk of falls among older people), improve your leg and lower body strength, increase flexibility, help with arthritis pain, aid in the recovery of injuries, and a recent study presented at the American Heart Association meeting even found that just 12 weeks of Tai Chi resulted in a small but significant drop in blood pressure in older people.
Not all Tai Chi programs, though, have as their focus health and healing. In fact most Tai Chi styles come from a martial arts background where the main focus was on effective fighting, with any health benefit just a side benefit.
That is where our Tai Chi program is different. Our Tai Chi style is called Chi Kung/Tai Chi, and it was developed from the healing arts called Chi Kung rather than from the martial arts. And since our Chi Kung/Tai Chi style focuses on the health aspects of Tai Chi, it can allow you to more quickly and easily access the health benefits of Tai Chi compared to the martial Tai Chi styles.
Our participants increase their flexibility, release stress, stay fitter, have fun, and get healthier! Can you imagine if after you were involved for a few months how good you would feel?
How would you feel if you if you got involved this week? By the time you've started to notice just how far you've come, you'll be really excited about the changes you've made.
MMA Classes (http://academyofmartialarts.ca/mma.html)
The Mixed Martial Arts Method of Conditioning and MMA Street Defense© Training
What is it?
The ACADEMY MMA© program incorporates the best possible training methods and martial arts skills from a variety of Martial Arts such as karate, wrestling, Brazilian jujitsu, kickboxing, and boxing, which has been carefully developed so that you become the best you can be.
What should I expect?
The class is structured into three sections with the first being a unique ACADEMY MMA© warm up in the “Stand Up Zone©” in which you will loosen and warm up like a karate black belt, boxer and kick boxer to get your heart rate up using the top 24 stand-up techniques of the ACADEMY MMA© program. The second part of the class, the “Clinch & Takedown Zone©”, is where you practice getting in close to do takedowns, sweeps and reversals as well as “shadow-downs & shadow-ups” © which are techniques to stop a person from tripping, sweeping or throwing you to the ground.
Then the fun starts! The “Ground-Work Zone©” is where you will train on the ground. A blend of wrestling, judo and jiu-jitsu make this part of the class challenging (especially for the abs), safe but extremely fun. This is where our MMA Street Defense© elements shine.
