Martial Arts for Kids
Kids who study martial arts were found to perform better in math, be more attentive, have better social skills, and have an easier time focusing in class than those that didn’t. Taking up some form of martial art was even found to help children mitigate the symptoms of ADD/ADHD, and allow them to perform and behave better at school and at home. Some parents are concerned that teaching kids martial arts may make them violent, but the reverse is actually true. Studies on disadvantaged children from violent homes found that some form of training actually made them less violent than their peers from similar circumstances.

TCMA’s school philosophy blends tradition, hard work, commitment and discipline with a sense of fun, humor and community. Our student creed and daily affirmations place friendship and self-improvement over competition. We emphasize that every student should try their best and be supportive of others

I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you. Mainly for what you have done in such a short time for our child's self-esteem and pride. TCMA Parent

My gratitude and heartfelt thanks to you both for being a part of creating the history of our son's life, the foundation upon which I'm sure he will build for years to come, and an environment of love and acceptance. TCMA Parent
