Parents doing karate with their kids

We have a lot of parents that enjoy taking classes with their kids.  

Most times the "aha" moment doesn't come until after they have come in and either see all the other parents taking classes with their kids, or maybe it's just seeing how much we love the family environment that encourages them to join in.

We have had a few parents that before they even come in for a class know that they want to do classes with their kids. If you fall into that category then you are a rare breed :)  

Either way we would love to have your whole family train. We teach students ages 4-adults an our classes are family style so that you can train at the same time as your child does which is a HUGE benefit for families that have a tight schedule.  

The biggest benefits to training as a parent is family time. This is one of the few activities that you can guarantee consistent family connection. By doing karate as a family you will all get to do a fun activity that lets you bond together in a great environment. 

Our instructors are very passionate about helping children improve their mentality. In classes we talk about developing self confidence, how important it is to demonstrate self discipline and the value of being committed to your goals.

From our FB reviews:  

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Rebecca Barrientos "I am so glad my children and I joined. We have learned so much from Instructors and Master Clements. Also love the way the older students have helped us with different moves and stances. Thank you Instructor Green, for coming to Mountain day in BV. Where we first met."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Sarah Evencho: "My seven year old has been in this program within a week of moving to the area ten months ago, and it has been the biggest blessing to our family. He has become more disciplined and focused, while staying in shape and learning karate. If you want your child to grow and become a better person, not just knowledgeable in martial arts, then this holistic program is for you. UpLevel is imparting skills that will last a lifetime, and a huge part of that success belongs to the Directors and instructors. This isn't just an investment in my son's black belt, but an investment in my son."  

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ SusanMahood: "Great place for anyone looking to get fit and learn martial arts! Instructors are amazing!" 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Anne Lemon: "The children at this school are remarkable. Their ability to manage themselves and initiate conversation with adults is very impressive. I am an adult and have been taking beginner classes here for about a month. Many of the students in classes I have attended are elementary-aged children. They have with absolutely no prompting approached me and said "good job", noticed when I didn't know what to do and helped me, and noticed when I didn't have equipment and offered me theirs. Wow. On top of all that, they're pretty good at karate too."

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Claire Cornwell: "I love that they not only teach karate, they teach character qualities and life skills- respect, self-discipline, focus. Its been so fun for my family, it has given us something to bond over! Love this place and all the people in it."
