HEALTHY OUTLET FOR EXCESS ENERGY!

Tweens / Teens when they aren't sleeping - have the energy to burn, so they need an outlet to release all this energy. They need to be challenged physically, allowing them to grow, get stronger and develop a sense of self-esteem.

A FEW WORDS

From Stephane D'Amour

Hi, I'm Stephane D'Amour, Owner / Head Instructor here at Mixed Martial Arts & Fitness Academy.

As a Martial Arts Instructor with a broad teaching experience training Tweens / Teens in the Kanata / Stittsville area for the last 19 years, there is nothing better than seeing your Tween / Teen improve in class.

Because learning martial arts as a Tween / Teen has much more to it than some may think. Tweens / Teens that learn martial arts at MMAFA are taught much more than kicking, punching or getting their next belt.

It's all about teaching Tweens / Teens focus and dicipline, and in this age of distractions and sensory overload, this is a skill that shows immediate results in your son or daughter's daily life.

Our classes are well structured and lots of fun with an emphasis on giving positive feedback while learning self defense.

So please read below and find out how your Tweens / Teens can benefit from our martial arts programs.

Thank you and see you on the mat!

TWEENS / TEENS DESERVE TO FEEL CONFIDENT ABOUT THEMSELVES

Tweens and Teens crave a sense of achievement and competence, which is driven by their need for attention and praise. By learning and being able to execute techniques in class, they develop confidence in their abilities to perform, which carries over into other areas of their lives.

LEARN TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEMSELVES AND OTHERS

As Tweens / Teens learning self-defence, they are taught techniques and principles that can be used to protect themselves in a conflict situation. They are taught that along with the empowerment of being able to protect themselves comes to the responsibility of knowing when, where and how to use this knowledge. Tween / Teens are taught not only that they are responsible for their actions, but also that there is a responsibility that comes along with knowing martial arts that encourages them to help others who cannot protect themselves.

DISCIPLINE THROUGHOUT SCHOOL, HOME & LIFE

Martial Arts training instills self-discipline. Tweens / Teens learn in a very structured environment that requires them to listen, focus and perform every single time they come to class.

Through repetitions exposure to this environment, tweens/teens begin to become conditioned to structure, direction and being focused. When combined with the other aspects of training, they start taking it upon themselves to do what is necessary to achieve what they want.

STRUCTURED, SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR GROWTH

Tweens / Teens hate being embarrassed, feeling out of place or feeling stupid because they made a mistake. Our martial arts program provides a safe, and supportive environment free of judgement so tweens/teens feel safe to make mistakes, learn and grow.

Tween/Teens also need strict guidelines and boundaries to channel their newfound feelings of independence. Our structured environment of martial arts classes provides the necessary boundaries while giving them freedom of expression.

GET YOUR TWEEN/TEEN AWAY FROM THEIR SMARTPHONES AND VIDEO GAMES

TWEENS/TEENS today are bombared with more technology than any generation that ever existed. While many modern devices enrich our lives, they can have a negative effect on us when our lives begin to revolve around them.

Martial Arts is the perfect way to get tween/teens off their couches and away from their devices. It will build muscle and increase their cardiovascular performance, ensuring that your son or daughter is fit and healthly.
