    Patience and Parenting - Fort Worth Kids Martial Arts

    I wanted to share some great tips on the Parent SKILLZ word: PATIENCE. A few seconds can make a BIG difference… Sometimes as parents we respond with too much anger, and that can be harmful and cause regression in our child’s behavior. When you take a few extra seconds before responding to poor behavior, you will make better parenting choices, and ultimately help your child develop better behavior choices. So how can you foster more PATIENCE as a parent? I suggest you ‘catch yourself’ when you are about to explode. This does require you to be conscious in the heat of the moment, so be sure to identify your triggers by clarifying when you are most likely to lose ....

    Why Martial Arts for Summer?

    Benefits to SKILLZ Training Over Summertime During the school season teachers, assistants, and counselors are focused on helping your children learn and grow. But what happens during the summer season when these people are not around? It makes sense that as a parent you would want your child to maintain some level of growth and development over the summer in order to limit or prevent your child from losing a lot of the skills gained over the last school season. This includes growth and development in the following areas: physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. With that said, one of the very best options is to keep your child active through a solid martial arts ....

    Martial Arts; Equipping Children in Dangerous Times

    It's so hard to believe that our Nation has experienced yet another horrific school shooting. As a parent, that has to be the single most frightening event that could come to mind.

    Clean vs. Clutter

    I love being a Martial Arts Instructor. Unlike educational instruction, we have opportunity to really connect with our students and families which is a great privilege. This evening, one of my parents asked if we could sit down together with their child who was having difficulty keeping up with daily chores, namely keeping their room clean. I started thinking immediately about the many conversations I’d had with my own children growing up and myself as well regarding this topic. Personally, I came to recognize that my moods and behavior could be directly linked to how my home looked at any given time. Now, I’m not a messy person in general but I did begin to notice that my mood ....

    A Deeper Look at 13 Reasons Why

    I recently read a blog entitled; Warning: Do Not Let Your Kids Watch 13 Reasons Why. Although my kids are 19 plus, I work with kids so I read it and found it worthy of sharing. I said that I had not heard about this book or the series but it was worth Parent's doing some research if they had tweens/teens. Being that the topic was pretty heavy, I decided to watch the series for myself. Well, after taking the weekend to watch 13 Reasons Why, I can definitely say that I do not recommend this program for youth. Although I understand what they were trying to do, I must say, this show was a real mess. Before Ibegin, let me start by saying that I have personally atttended two funerals and known ....

    Teaching The Power of Practice Through Martial Arts

    Practice, a repeated exercise in or performance of an activity or skill so as to acquire or maintain proficiency in it. in our fast paced world of technology, it's quite easy to acquire information. Anything you want to know is just a Google question away. Having on the spot information has made life so much easier in so many ways, however, in many ways, it has also caused our children a bit of harm. While waiting for a Celine Dion concert to begin, my daughter and I took note of the number of people on their cell phones. We laughed as we observed the two schools, those that used their thumbs vs. those that used their index finger to type. Can you guess who used their index finger, that's ....

    How Martial Arts Equipped Me For Success

    I rarely get asked, "how did you get into Martial Arts?" Why? Because most people that see me perform don't question that I belong here. That may sound like an odd statement but not really. By most standards, this isn't the most likely place that I would fit in. I was born with no vision in my right eye and limited vision in my left. I am not able to drive and use magnifying aids to read so why Martial Arts? All of us, no matter how popular you may be, have experienced; insecurity, self doubt, low self esteem or bullying at one time or another.
