I have really enjoyed learning Krav Maga at Super T. The classes are fun, I get a great workout and I am learning to defend myself.
Master Terry is awesome!

Our son has had a fabulous first year at Super T! He's healthier, stronger, and more confident than ever before, plus he's part of a supportive community. I'm not exaggerating when I say that karate has been life changing!

Master Terry is very professional but also personable. He has so much experience and truly cares about his clientele. He teaches how to stay focused which is excellent with anyone who has ADHD. He really knows how to teach the boxing moves by breaking them down. His family is a real asset since they are all involved with training at his place. You won't be sorry you joined at all. It's a high class place to get into kickboxing.

Great way to get your exercise while still learning ways to defend yourself with the added bonus of having fun while doing it. Great group of people, from Master Terry and Sensei Marvin to all the other students.

Great place to learn self defense to stay safe. Master Terry is very well educated, keeps his students very informed with the newest techniques.
Everyone is very willing to help each other to strive to the best of their ability. While working hard, there is also time to have a few laughs.
Super T Karate is a great place!

My daughter has been training at Suoer T Karate for three and a half years, since she was 5 years old. Master Terry’s extreme dedication and expert coaching has allowed her to not only earn her brown stripe belt, but has also instilled amazing self confidence, mental and physical strength, martial arts skills, self defense techniques and so much more. She absolutely loves karate and I’ve enjoyed watching her grow into a powerful young woman because of it. I HIGHLY recommend Super T Karate!!! Master Terry and the other senseis are the best and truly care about their students success!!!

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts

April 2nd is Family Day, and it’s the ideal time to talk about how to find family activities. If
you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do
as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and
vice versa.

There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying the
martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in
shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some
of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone

People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a
lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television.
The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a
good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn
off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by
getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer

When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even
though you and your kids will be in separate classes, we think martial arts still qualifies as a
group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals.
In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to
practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial
arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.
#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships
The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far
beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control,
courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life.
Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important
improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one
another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Martial Arts is Fun

Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and martial arts classes are! A good
martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feelgood
hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling.
Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to
execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their fist. You won’t have to worry
about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!
Conclusion

Studying martial arts as a family can help you come together across the generations – and it’s
a great way to carve some family time out of your busy lives.
