As soon as you become a martial arts student, you join a community that works together toward improved physical strength and stamina, better focus and concentration, greater self-discipline, competency in self-defense and, most importantly, increased self-confidence.

For us at Northwest Indiana Martial Arts Academy, the practice of martial arts means respecting each other, encouraging and supporting each other and celebrating each other’s successes.

These values are especially important in working with children and families — the primary focus of our martial arts school.

We have martial arts programs for students of all ages.

For children, our emphasis is on character development and physical fitness.

With adults, our goal is to deliver all of the benefits of martial arts, including improved muscle tone, increased cardiovascular fitness, lower stress levels, increased energy, and greater flexibility.

Self-defense is also emphasized, but it’s always tempered with the training on how to seek alternatives to conflict.

Each of our martial arts instructors is committed to teaching the physical skills while applying attitude-shaping exercises aimed at bringing out the best character and physical potential in each student.

martial arts School Programs

karate

In addition to teaching martial arts to our own students, we also offer programs for schools.

Our instructors will come to your school either during the school day or after school to deliver training that integrates the physical aspects of martial arts with lessons about character development, confidence, respect, and leadership.

Below are details on two proven programs we offer to local schools, Be Your Best and Verbal Self Defense.

To get more information about our school programs, please contact us. We look forward to working with you on our common goal of making sure the leaders of tomorrow are successful and confident today!

Character Education: The Be Your Best Program

Here is the structure of this program:

I. Introduction day

As a guest gym teacher or a guest speaker in the classroom, we work with the assigned grade levels to create interest among the children. We talk about the following:

    How to be a good listener and show respect for the teachers
    You are what you sound like — confidence in the classroom
    Dealing with a bully — using verbal defense tactics to deal with confrontation

II. After school program, five classes (taught at your school)

    Two classes a week, after school
    Classes focus on respect, discipline and focus skills. Parents contribute $19 to $39 for the program — the cost is up to you. One hundred percent of the fee is donated to your school.
    We volunteer our time for the entire program and donate supplies.
    Kids have daily homework assignments that are discipline and character related.

Verbal Self Defense

Our Verbal Self Defense program provides children and adults with tools which help resolve conflicts by controlling their responses and using specific word blocks. This same program is used by police officers across the country to de-escalate potentially dangerous situations. Our staff has participated in the same training program slightly adapted to make the messages applicable to children. The program is modifiable for all age levels, group sizes and time frames.

Martial Arts Isn’t Just For Kids

While our martial arts training is an excellent personal-development activity for children, it’s great for adults also.

Our Northwest Indiana Martial Arts adult students usually find that they cope better with stress, sleep better at night, work better during the day and just feel better overall. They also have a greater peace of mind due to the knowledge and expertise on what to do if faced with a dangerous situation.

However, the greatest benefit of martial arts at Northwest Indiana Martial Arts Academy for adults is the increased sense of self confidence it builds.

No matter what the style of martial arts — whether it’s karate, kung fu, taekwondo, jujitso, judo, aikido, tai chi or kendo — the physical and mental benefits are similar.

Physical Benefits of Martial Arts

    Increased cardiovascular fitness
    Improved muscle tone
    Increased energy
    Greater flexibility

Mental Benefits of Martial Arts

    Lower stress levels
    Higher self-esteem
    Emotional satisfaction — especially if you’re taking martial arts classes alongside your children
    Better concentration and focus

All of the martial arts classes are individualized. Adults participate at their own fitness level while progressing in skill and technique.

When participating as a family, martial arts provide a unique opportunity for sharing in a non-competitive fun activity. Plus, parents have the opportunity to reinforce the life lessons taught in our martial arts classes at home.

We provide an ideal workout for both men and women. Our adult martial arts students range in age from young adult to seniors.

Martial Arts Builds Young Minds and Bodies

Children love learning at Northwest Indiana Martial Arts Academy. Our kids martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive.

The overarching goal of our school is to build our students’ self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our students’ accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.

Learning martial arts is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques. At Northwest Indiana Martial Arts Academy, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.

Our martial arts emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self-confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self-discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.

Traits That Martial Arts Develops in a Child

    Self-esteem                                
    Focus
    Concentration
    Self-discipline
    Physical fitness
    Self confidence
    Positive attitude
    Leadership
    Respect
    Patience
    Goal setting
    Manners
    Strong work ethic

Classes at our school end with group discussions and role-playing exercises. We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive way.

Children pay close attention as we explore topics that include:

    Avoiding conflicts
    Dealing with bullies
    Mental self defense
    Proper respect for adults
    Stranger awareness
    Respect for self and others
    Saying no to drugs and peer pressure

These valuable life lessons help our martial arts students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.

We are committed to teaching the physical skills of martial arts while applying attitude-shaping exercises aimed at bringing out the best character and physical potential in each student. Through weekly martial arts training, instructors advance their own martial art and educational knowledge to become even more effective martial arts teachers.

The Northwest Indiana Martial Arts Academy instructors are required to maintain their personal level of martial arts knowledge and a high level of personal growth. They are expected to take classes on a regular basis and test at least once per year.

Our staff at Northwest Indiana Martial Arts Academy looks forward to working with you!
