If you’re like most parents you’ve probably experienced moments where you’ve asked your child to do something and it took you a few repeats to get them to finally do what you’ve asked. Maybe you’ve sat around wondering, if my child is having a hard time listening now, how will I deal with other issues as they arise?

Have you ever experienced any of the following:
    • Having to ask your child more than once to do something? You’ve asked them to clean their room, but getting them to turn off the tv and do what you’ve asked them multiple times is like pulling teeth.
    • Getting your child to focus on a given task? It’s time for them to do their homework, but all they want to do is play. Perhaps you’ve asked them to get their books and assignments out, but instead, they have their toys all over the living room floor.
    • Making sure your little one is paying attention when your trying to explain something? You’re trying to have a serious conversation about crossing the street or strangers, and all they can talk about is how bobby picked his nose at school then ate it. Ever been there?
    • Low Self Esteem? Maybe your child just doesn’t seem motivated or they’re having a hard time believing in themselves. Perhaps they don’t feel they’re good enough or better yet, they’ll never get good grades because they just aren’t smart enough.
    • Having your child act out at school or in public? Have you ever received a phone call or email from a teacher saying your child was acting out in class or playing to aggressively at recess? Maybe you’ve been pulling your hair out because you can’t get your kids to get along at home and not fight.


So many parents that come to us suffer the exact same struggles. Many of them were at a point where they didn’t know what to do or how to help. Truth is, we all want the absolute best for our kids, we want them to succeed, set goals, feel great about themselves but sometimes we as parents need help. Sometimes having a great support system and a team to work with is the answer. Have you ever heard someone say how amazing their child is and all you could think was why not my kid?

We Can Help!

We’ve seen all different types of students, we have even had that “amazing” kid in class. Guess what, that amazing kid WAS amazing, but what their parents didn’t tell their friends was that their child had low self esteem. They were a great listener, could focus on anything and everything, but had a hard time with believing in themselves.


Practicing martial arts helps you feel safe and confident in today’s society and provides an excellent way to manage stress get in shape and feel great.

Martial Arts helps you live your best life by offering you valuable success and life skills such as confidence, discipline, and life balance.

Have you ever experienced any of the following:
    • Having a hard time staying awake during the day? Your constantly having to find ways to stay awake, half way through the day you find yourself dozing off.
    • You want to learn how to protect yourself and your family? You’ve tried everything, you’ve bought DVD’s tried classes that are supposed to be taught to the military, but nothing seemed to give you the tools you need to feel confident that you could protect yourself and most importantly your family?
    • Stress Levels from work impacting other areas of life? You’re banging your head against the wall, major deadlines due at work, stress levels through the roof and cant seem to find the solution. Ever been there?
    • Low Self Esteem? Maybe your clothes don’t fit the way they once did or it seems like life is handing you one lemon after another, or maybe you feel that your just not good enough.
    • Your trying to find the perfect place to improve your martial arts? You’ve been to different “gyms” but they all felt like a gym and not warm and inviting. Perhaps you’ve been training but your in a rut and don’t feel that your skills are improving and your looking for the right martial arts school to be apart of to help take you to a entirely new level? 


Kung Fu is the oldest and is one of the most popular martial arts in the world, if not the most popular. But…. what if I told you that not every martial arts school is created equal. Sure, you might find a school with an instructor with high accolades in competition but does that make them a great instructor? Sure, you might find a school with a huge name attached to it, but does that person teach there? There are so many factors that go into finding the RIGHT martial arts school for you, the question is, where do you start, better yet what are you looking for?

6 MAJOR Benefits of Martial Arts for Children!

Studies show that children who are active in Martial Arts programs do better in school AND have a better home life!

Focus, Confidence and Self Esteem

Martial Arts is one of the BEST ways children can learn how to have unshakable, razor sharp focus. Kids are able to pay attention in school, feel better about themselves, maintain eye contact during conversations and feel good about themselves in all aspects of their lives.

As a result, kids stand taller, smile bigger, and perform better. They are overall happier and love who they have become.

Leadership and Teamwork Skills

Whether they’re breaking boards, getting a new belt or learning how to master a new maneuver, there are few things that your child does in their martial arts classes that will be done on their own. Working together to learn new things and accomplish goals is an important life lesson for kids to learn, and instruction in martial arts can help your child learn that lesson.

Making new friends has never been easier, kids learn how to interact and find the good in everyone they meet.

Super Hero Listening

In order to master the skill’s they’re being taught and advance through belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills. Kids who aren’t always adept when it comes to paying attention to what they’re told can benefit from the verbal instruction and one-on-one work in their dojo.

Parents come to us with their jaws on the floor because their children are saying yes sir and yes ma’am at home and at school. The BIGGEST improvement parents see is that they don’t have to tell their kids to do something more than once!

Boost in Socialization Skills

Kids who don’t always thrive in highly social environments may find it easier to get to know people and make new friends when they’re in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. The kids on the playground may not always have much common ground, but children who participate in martial arts are able to get to know one another through shared pursuits.

Encouraged Physical Activity

Limiting screen time is a great idea when it comes to getting kids off the couch and encouraging them to be more active, but it only goes so far. Enrolling an inactive child in such a physically demanding pastime not only discourages the sedentary lifestyle they are used to, but also gives them an enjoyable activity that inspires them to keep moving.

Learning to Set and Achieve Goals

Most forms of martial arts are based around an accomplishment system of colored belts that signify the wearer’s degree of skills. When your child strives towards each new belt, they’re learning valuable lessons about setting and reaching goals.

quotation_marksWe have had our daughter Mykayla in Kung Fu 4 Kids for over a year now and I believe she has found her passion! The teachers are absolutely amazing, not only in their own skills, but for the skills they are teaching each of their students. They take the time with each student to help them grow and become a stronger, healthier version of themselves. My daughter now sets goals for herself and makes sure she is reaching a higher standard instead of just doing what’s expected.

quotation_marksWe have had Ella in the NINJAgarten program for a month now. She turned 4 in March so I was concerned about her attention span. However, the staff at Kung Fu Northwest is so engaging that she counts the days until her next lesson. The class instructor, Ralph is remarkable with the children. Not only is he a lot of fun and able to easily hold their attention with his energy and skill but he holds the kids to a high standard. They respect him and respond well to the structure and authority.
