HELP IN ONE OF THESE AREAS?
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE & PATIENCE
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
LEARN THE VALUE OF RESPECTING THEMSELVES & OTHERS
Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to respect all authority figures.
In our martial arts school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.
Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.
JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS
Whether they’re in a martial arts class or in a competition, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.
Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.
They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make judgments.
GET YOUR KIDS OFF THE COUCH AND INTO MARTIAL ARTS
It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.
The electronics epidemic might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.
Martial arts classes provide teens with challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.
The study of martial arts requires them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.
Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.
I have had my two kids in Chon-Ji Academy for the past 6 weeks. Both really enjoy it, are crazy motivated to advance in the belt system, and most importantly, are getting amazing exercise while really improving each week. That's what really surprised me the most - there is little downtime, so the workout is really impressive, even in contrast to sports like basketball (no bench time!) and t-ball. I recommend it!
Jonathan started attending Chon Ji Academy immediately after we relocated from Florida. We were both seeking a much needed sense of belonging and I am so lucky I found this Gem in Teaneck. This was in the summer of 2015. He is now a red belt and still excited about learning, seeing his instructors and friends in class. We found so much more here. Family owned and everyone plays a role in teaching your child. Skills learned go beyond martial arts and will stay with him growing up. Accountability, self respect, confidence, control , goal setting and so much more. I am very thankful!
Chon-Ji Academy is absolutely incredible! I have been a student there for 6 months as part of their Krav Maga program and it was love at first class!! The atmosphere is very warm and welcoming, and yet the classes are focused and intense, threaded with jokes and laughter. Master Casser and Mr. Miles are great instructors (and actors! 😉) and overall good people who inspire their students to do and be the best that they can. As a beginner I was instantly made to feel comfortable in the class and in my own abilities to learn new techniques for self defense. I hope to be a student here for a long time!!
Two years ago when I was looking for an outlet for my 9 year old nephew who has ADHD I looked at 4 martial arts programs in the area and I am so happy we choose Chon-Ji academy in Teaneck. The program provided Chris with a physical outlet as well as exercises in mental focus that benefited him both at school and at home. This year in preparation of my 17 year old daughter leaving for college I wanted her to be prepared to defend herself from predators but as you know a senior in high schools schedule is so tight. I convinced her to enroll her in the self defense class that is offered once a week for 30 minutes with no long term commitment. After 3 short months she is both physically and mentally prepared to defend herself should she have to and it has opened up a dialogue between us for "what if's" that used to annoy her. I feel so much better now knowing she has the ability to assess danger and defend herself that I can get excited about her impending college departure. I cannot thank Master Casser enough for both helping my nephew and daughter prepare for their life challenges.
