This studio is amazing. My two children have thrived under the caring instructors. My kids love their classes. As a parent I am thrilled about the focus being more on the student as a whole. In class, in school, and at home students are encouraged to have respect for their parents, teachers, and elders. My kids liked it so much I decided to join as well. As an adult student I learn the discipline as well as self defense, and more. I highly recommend this studio to everyone.

Beyond Martial Arts is an amazing studio! Even if a student doesn’t get a motion the first time, Master Reymoore is incredibly kind and patient with them. The studio and instructors take the time to help each student succeed. So happy we found Beyond Martial Arts!

Master Reymoore is the best! My daughter not only learns Tae Kwon Do, but also respect, compassion and patience among others! I highly recommend Beyond Martial Arts! BMA is the best!

4 Hidden Benefits of Martial Arts

Have you ever had that friend that asked: “Why is your son/daughter in martial arts?” We are sure you have. We are also sure that you were able to provide a great answer to that question. We were recently asked that question as well! Before we replied, we knew we really wanted to get to the heart of what we do at Beyond Martial Arts, beyond the typical responses. So instead, we remembered a few hidden benefits that we hear most often from our parents!

Here are 4 of the hidden benefits of having a child in Martial Arts:

“Structured” Physical Activity
Notice we didn’t just say “physical activity”! It is easy for moms/dads to take their kids to the playground and watch them have free time for an hour or so. But not our parents, they have invested in something far more valuable for their kids! Our classes are made with the brain in mind and are therefore structured so that we are able to deliver the most up to date information, in a manner that each age group can retain. So not only are our students getting the physical exercise they need to stay fit and healthy; they are getting the intellectual stimulation they need to help them stay sharp at school!

Socially Positive Stress Relief
There is no doubt that the pressures of school academics and social pressures weigh on our kids releasing lots of cortisol which is retroactive to leading an emotionally stable lifestyle. This can be seen especially during back to school seasons. But the good news is that even after a stressful or busy day, our students are able to come to Beyond Martial Arts where we have built a community in which they can feel safe, confident, and free to be themselves. Many students also create friendships here that will last a lifetime as well!

Powerful Positive Role Models
We are proud that you chose us to be the positive role models in your child’s life. We take that seriously which is why each of our instructors is trained to use the Kids Love Life Skills system. This allows us to understand each individual physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. We are also trained in positive reinforcement techniques that can generate results quicker than many traditional systems that often cause children to step backward behaviorally.

Little “wins” add up
We all want our kids to have huge goals, and to achieve them. In our martial arts programs, our students learn that each major win is accomplished through smaller victories. Every class our students work hard to earn a skill stripe; each testing cycle they are rewarded for their daily effort by achieving a new rank. This cycle continues to be reinforced and eventually, they will know the elation that comes when they have their first black belt tied around their waist. This lesson is valuable beyond words and will help each child for many years in the future.
