Discover how your child can pick up true, wholesome values from learning how to kick, block and punch.
I don't blame you. You're thinking, come on, how can karate and martial arts teach wholesome values? Well, I'm here to tell you, in more ways than you can even begin to imagine.
My name is Harry Grimm, father of a teenager and grown adult. I'm also the owner of one of the most successful martial arts schools in the country, Holden Martial Arts right here in the Wachusett community.
For over 20 years, I've been nurturing children like yours with character building tools found only in karate. No other sport can teach them. In the next few pages, I'm going to tell you how you and your child can sample all of this and more -- all at no charge.
Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy and spirit. Stand and be dazzled as he becomes unstoppable in his quest for:
* Greater academic achievement
* Unshakable self-respect
* Increased strength and fitness, in both body and mind
Look at it this way, your child's first and biggest challenge comes not from fighting for his rights on the street or beating up the neighborhood bully. It comes, instead from battle more sinister forces. Your children's won fears and self-doubts.
* I'm not as smart as John
* don't get what my teacher is saying
* I wish I was as (strong, pretty, tall) as Sally
* Why does Jim keep giving me a bad time?
* Why can't I be as popular as Jill?
The question is, how to get your child to fight these demons? You know the problem; your child has a tough time even telling you they haunt her; never mind how she might conquer them.
Well, the good news is, I have a proven solution. A program that has already worked for over 1000 area children. A series of lessons you child can learn easier than you think. Let me tell you its secret.
To repeat, martial arts are less about your child learning to fight others, and more about fighting himself -- his innermost fears. Conquer them, and your child unleashes within himself a powerful and unstoppable force.
A force that gives him the strength to kick down the doors of his own self-doubts. A force that opens your child to the exalting power of values.
In other words, when your child uses the discipline of karate to conquer his own fears, he has the power to transfer that discipline to all other areas of his life. I know of no other sport that does this better than karate. I should know, remember, I've been teaching it for over 20 years.
But don't take my word for it.
" I am so pleased with my daughters experience at Holden Martial Arts. They have learned techniques for making friends, making good decisions and feeling the impact that acts of kindness brings. They have also learned how to protect themselves, both their bodies and their character. I also want to share my experience as a parent. To watch my kids self-confidence grow has been so rewarding. It is so comforting to know that my values as a parent are being reinforced and emphasized in every class. I love watching the instructors guide my children through lessons to help them gain the tools they need to be successful in life. I get a real good feeling watching my kids experience the art of Kenpo Karate. I feel like a good parent when I bring my kids to Holden Martial Arts. Thank you." - Lucy E., Worcester
" Before joining the program at Holden Martial Arts, Brandon had the tendencies of a follower. He was easily influenced by his peers and too shy to speak his mind. Since he has been involved with Karate, he has developed a strong sense of self. He has become more comfortable speaking his mind, even when faced with peer pressure." - Beth and Paul S., Jefferson
"Holden Martial Arts has been a positive and driving force in my children's lives. Due to the effects of the Harry Grimm and his excellent staff, I have witnessed my son's transformation from a quiet, shy individual lacking confidence, to an outgoing, courteous and confident person. My daughter, Amanda, was so taken with the upbeat camaraderie that she had to join to be a part of the incredible team spirit that dominates Holden Martial Arts. Thank you for changing their lives for the better." - Mark and Kathy B., Holden
Now, you may be asking, how does all this value stuff work? And why does Karate manage to do a better job teaching it?
Again, more than any other sport, karate gives your child the chance to explore her innate powers. She'll marvel (as you will) as she increases in strength, endurance, balance, and harmony. Yet, this is only the start.
In fact, her physical skills act as a foundation for something much more important: the development of her value skills, mental and spiritual. And not cut-off from her physical skills, but intimately connected even bonded to them.
Courage. Your child finds the courage to move outside of his comfort zone. He wills himself to take on more difficult karate moves and skills. He becomes no longer afraid of being afraid.
Staying power. Your child finds joy in improving her physical stamina. She can walk farther, run longer and practice skills until she gets them right.
In turn, she learns not to give up. She sticks things out. With the help of her teachers, she strives harder, longer to reach her goals. Even if she fails, she preserves her self-respect. She won't let her self-doubts get in the way of finding ultimate solutions
Honesty. As the man said, Where performance is measured, performance improves. Yet you child has to first accept where he stands now. That means measuring current strengths. Above all, she learns that to succeed, he can't fool anyone, especially himself.
This results in laser-like focus. He learns to make eye contact with his teacher (and not just in karate). He pays greater attention to what the teacher says. He knows and accepts where he stands.
These are just three of the powerful, energizing values your child will get from the program at Holden Martial Arts. In short, you can look forward to your child developing the following:
- Fearless self-confidence. Watch as your child finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.
- Improved focus. She'll learn what's needed, along with the skill to zero in on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting, childhood distractions won't get in her way.
- Powerful self-control. He'll refuse to give in to negative peer pressure. He'll have a deeper respect for the rules.
Towering role model teachers. As you might guess, all of this couldn't have happened unless I had the very best of teachers. To make sure I have the very best, each of them started as white belt beginners, right here in my school.
Today, they are all martial arts experts skilled and advanced black belts. All participate in different continuing education opportunities throughout the year in order for our students to receive the very best in instruction.
"Jeff loves going to karate. I believe the principles taught here have helped him in areas outside of karate. The classes would be nothing without the enthusiasm and dedication of the teachers. They love their jobs and it shows through their interaction with the students." - Sharon A., Worcester
Now I still know what you're thinking: How can I know for sure the program at Holden Martial Arts will work for my child? Will learn to kick, block and punch really work for her? I've made it easy for you to find out.
