I've been a student here for about 6 months now, and I was afraid this was going to be an intimidating experience. Wow was it ever not! The staff are really friendly, and all of the other students are supportive of one another. This is a great place to build up some self esteem, burn off some fat, and meet some new friends!

Trail Martial Arts has really built up my children’s self esteem and encouraged them to take leadership roles by using a fun positive environment.

A creative punishment that works:

A creative punishment that works:
 
TIME: This is really the only thing that you can take away effectively. It makes a lasting impression and will reinforce the lesson you are trying to teach.
 
For example: Instead of taking away video games you take away time that they can play the games they want to.
 
Take away 5-minute intervals. If you want to be really creative, you can take random time during their video game time. If they lost 10 minutes you can let them start playing stop them at some point and put on the timer.
 
This is VERY effective because they KNOW what they are missing. If you take games away completely they will move onto the next thing and won’t give it much thought.
 
We use this method for all kinds of things: Time at the park (we hang out in the parking lot until the time is up) at the pool the other kids get in and he or she gets to wait the time out. You get the idea 😉
 
Give it a shot! Let me know how it works for you!
