Ross and Colton are awesome. They have made learning Jiu Jitsu unintimidating and fun. So get out of your comfort zone and learn Jiu Jitsu from a great group of knowledgeable instructors. You won't regret it.

My husband I and signed up earlier this year and have been taking classes ever since. The instructors are absolutely phenomenal and are so welcoming. The amount of knowledge the instructors have is just mind blowing. I had never once thought I’d be learning Jiu Jitsu and actually be grasping it & enjoying it so much. Do yourself a favor and dip your toes into their offered start up classes and you’ll see what I mean.

They have no shortage of amazing instructors. They have an ability to balance safety, fun, and self awareness that is uncanny.

Love the way the instructors make each child feel everytime they enter the studio! They are consistent and the perfect mesh of strict, fun/silly and nurturing. Way to go on building a successful environment for kids who, these days,tend to struggle with self-esteem, acceptance and respect! 👍

Honestly before taking my two now 5 yr old twins here it was hard to control them without them yelling or running around like well crazy kids usually do. Now they are calmer kids who still act like kids but when given a task they can do that task with little guidance. They are doing well in school because they are used to listening and showing respect to their katate teacher and that carries over into school. We decided to sign them up for the black belt program because we knew that they liked it and showed the dedication needed to go to that program. Again 5 stars for a karate studio. They dont just teach karate like other places, they teach kids and even adults life lessons and making them better people.

Amazing karate studio. Loved it so much that my three kids, my wife, and I all take karate lessons now. The instructors are amazing and fully vested in the students’ development. Feels like a second home for my family.

Engaging In Martial Arts To Combat Childhood Obesity

Karate-For-Kids-Girl2

This article details the problems of childhood obesity and presents Martial Arts as a terrific prevention method and remedy. It also presents Manchester Karate Studio as one of the best options available to caring parents.

The Problem of Childhood Obesity

With childhood obesity having become a national epidemic in recent decades, more and more parents are discovering that Martial Arts can be an effective solution for helping their children to keep or get their weight under control. This engaging, enduring activity offers children (and adults) a complete fitness program that benefits development and improvement of the whole body.

Martial Arts and Childhood Obesity

We have been teaching Martial Arts to children and adults in the Greater Manchester Area for some time. Like others in our community, we have watched in dismay as this particular childhood malady has spread at a remarkable pace with dismal, disheartening, and costly results. In well-advised response, many parents are bringing their kids in to train at our facility to address the issue and obtain a litany of great benefits in addition.

Childhood obesity is be a complex and multi-faceted problem. Martial Arts, contrary to what many people believe, have less to do with violence and more to do with self-improvement. It may sound cliché, but once embraced, Martial Arts for many become an overwhelmingly positive “way of life!” The physical practice of martial arts incorporates many aspects leading to fitness and well-being, including strength training, cardiovascular conditioning, and becoming more agile, energetic, and in control of the body. Together, these elements of Martial Arts training are a very powerful tool in combating childhood obesity.

Manchester Karate Studio

At Manchester Karate Studio, we diligently commit to each and every one of our students to help them reach the top of their potential, not just on the mats and in the ring, but in all walks of life. In our kids, teen, and adult Martial Arts programs, we work with individuals to help them derive from Martial Arts the benefits most crucial to leading healthy, happy, and productive lives.
When it comes to combating childhood obesity, we encourage behaviors within the walls of the Martial Arts studio that are typically carried over into every aspect of students’ lives. We enhance our Martial Arts training with instruction and practice of virtues like self-control, self-discipline, and self-respect. We likewise promote constructive behavior and moderation of consumption.

Childhood Obesity and the Community

Childhood obesity is a very serious problem. Addressing it is the responsibility not just of parents and kids themselves, but of the whole community. We must set a good example and provide an atmosphere that encourages healthy development and lifestyle choices. Martial Arts are among the most powerful tools at our disposal to halt and reverse this harmful, ongoing trend.
