Of American children are obese or are at risk for obesity
To help fight and prevent Obesity, kids need to move! The reality though is that our lives aren't setup for movement. With 7+ hour seated school days and busy parent work schedules, it's tough to keep modern kids healthy
Lead sedentary lives
Almost half of Adults are sedentary
More and more it seems inevitable that as kids grow into adults, they slow down and become unhealthy. It doesn't have to be this way, but we have to create healthy movements habits before it's too late.
Our goals for our Kids Martial Arts students are the same as your goals as a parent. Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Healthy Habits for life!
Having a solid foundation of positivity in your child's life is invaluable. You can't control their experiences everywhere, nor would you want to. But at NEXTStep Martial Arts, you'll know they'll always be good ones.
At NEXTStep Martial Arts, it doesn't matter if your child isn't the best kid on the team; they'll never ride the bench. They'll always know they're valued members of class, and part of the team, each and every day.
Traditional Youth Sports don't work for most kids.
For many families, the emotional cost and lack of real benefits simply isn't worth the effort and time commitment
Kids Martial Arts is the perfect solution
All of the benefits of a group sport - teamwork, interaction with peers, learning with a group, but with all of the advantages of an individual activity
We regularly survey our parents to be sure we're offering the best program possible. Here's a sample of the real feedback we get regularly:
We have been with NEXTStep for over a year now. My kids love the activities, learning new skills, and making new friends. I love that my kids are learning discipline, listening skills, organization, and expelling energy. The instructors are super welcoming and make every class interesting. We drive over 30 minutes to go to NEXTStep and pass multiple places we could send our kids, but there is no other place we would ever send them.
We love next step martial arts, we have seen such an improvement in our son. He is less shy and he behaves better than before we started next step. We also love how at next step everyone is so nice and the instructors are so welcoming.
