FROM SA BUM NIM
I’m Michael Sentilles, Head Master Instructor (or, in Korean, Sa Bum Nim) at Yonsei Martial Arts Academy.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids and a father of four, there is nothing better than watching our students grow firsthand. But more important than the martial arts skills they learn here at Yonsei are the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching and getting the next colorful belt. It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect. With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and spirit.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of fun!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in our community, and why I know your kids are going to love training with us!
Take a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
Thank you, or as we teach our students in Korean, gahm sa hab ni da!
NEED HELP IN THESE AREAS?
They tattle on others without accepting responsibility for their own actions.
They have a hard time coping with losses and setbacks and may not demonstrate good sportsmanship.
They don’t remember what you or their teachers tell them and struggle with paying attention.
PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
Kids between the ages of seven and nine have done a lot of maturing, but that doesn’t mean that your job as a parent is any easier than it was before – it’s just different. Your child might have attained some degree of emotional control but still have a hard time reacting appropriately when disappointed or upset. Likewise, they might not be willing to accept blame when they do something wrong, and yet be very quick to point the finger at others and tattle.
Since kids this age tend to be intellectually very curious, it’s important to engage them on their level and provide them with continual challenges to keep them interested in what they’re doing. Martial arts instruction is ideal because of its structure of ongoing learning and measurable achievements.
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Our Core Eagles program with exclusive, age-appropriate SKILLZ® Worldwide curriculum works with kids to teach them how to accept responsibility for their actions, to manage negative emotions, and to pay attention to instructions and advice from their instructors. Our program teaches kids agility, courage, flexibility, and persistence in a way that allows them to build confidence. These skills translate from our martial arts studio to school – and to your home.
BUILD FINE MOTOR SKILLS
Older kids have better control than young ones, but they still may struggle with precision and accuracy.
Our Core Eagles program builds on earlier martial arts training to help our students gain control of their bodies and build strength while improving their balance while our Core SKILLZ® curriculum encourages our students to focus on improving their agility and technique when training with us. With Core SKILLZ®, we focus on agility, technique, courage, flexibility, intensity, perseverance, speed, and concentration.
Kids are easily distracted and may have difficult focusing on tasks and situations.
We teach our students to tune out distractions and focus on one thing at a time – something that’s increasingly challenging in today’s electronic world. With our Core SKILLZ® curriculum, our students improve their concentration through fun, active games.
PERSISTANCE & DETERMINATION
Kids develop persistence and the determination to see their goals through to the end.
When they’re learning a new skill, kids may be afraid or give up easily instead of risking failure.
Our Core Eagles learn to conquer their fears and persist even when they feel like giving up on a particular challenge or assignment. Through our Core SKILLZ® material, we help our students improve their courage and learn how to persevere through any sitatuion.
RESPECT & SELF CONTROL
Students learn how to disagree politely and to resolve disputes respectfully.
Many kids struggle with learning how to express disagreement without being rude or angry.
Our Core Eagles program teaches kids to speak up without disrupting others, and to figure out ways to resolve their challenges within the confines of the program’s structure.
We love Yonsei! Joining this school is one of the best decisions we have made. Connor has really started to focus better in school and be more respectful and empathetic and confident since being at Yonsei. All of the staff are caring and attentive, and outside of training every child’s entire well being is important to them.
The most engaging and committed staff! All 3 of our kids are enrolled at Yonsei.
There are so many great things about Yonsei! The one that I love the most is the feeling we get each time we attend. They treat you like family! I can see a difference in my son after every visit! They encourage him to never give up and they teach him respect. What more could we ask for right! Stop by and see for yourself! You won’t be disappointed 🙂
Yonsei Academy has given our son a safe, strict and fun place to learn Tang Soo Do. Respect, honesty and focus are a few core values taught. The staff is wonderful with kids. I recommend to friends and family.
This place is awesome!! Logan loves going to karate and when he does he always gives it his best and always learning more and trying new things.
Best decision we ever made sending my son to this school. The staff is great. My son became a 3rd degree black belt it took a lot of focus & hard work. The staff really cares for the students and teaches them how to respect themselves & others.
Great dojang. Master Sentilles and his staff of instructors instill good focus, discipline and self-control to students of all ages.
Yonsei is great! All the instructors are great, and know how to work with children in a way that is both firm, and respectful.
My child has learned a lot, has a lot of fun, and has improved in discipline, and focus.
This school is amazing! My son has grown so much since he has been enrolled here. The instructors are very patient and very knowledgeable.
Love this place!!!!
We have been at Yonsei for almost 4 years and it was the best decision we made for our daughter. I love that they teach core values while having fun at the same time. The staff is amazing and we wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else.
The absolute best thing you can do for your child or yourself is to join the Yonsei Martial Arts Academy family! Fabulous people and a fantastic program that will help you succeed in life!

Yes. It’s normal for kids to experience setbacks when they study martial arts. Some moves may require repeated effort to master, and the process teaches kids to handle disappointment and failure. Our Core SKILLZ® curriculum encourages perseverance in our students, allowing them to continue on despite the difficulties.
Our Core Eagles program helps kids to build focus and improve their memorization skills. Each of the SKILLZ® skills we teach requires kids to remember what the instructors have told them and – in some cases – to memorize a series of moves. When kids learn how to memorize information, they can use that skill anywhere they need to use it – including in the classroom. We also encourage intensity in our students through our SKILLZ® curriculum, using fun games and challenges to help them give their all.
A fixation on fairness is common in kids of this age, but our program helps them understand that sometimes life isn’t fair – and also, to realize that in our martial arts school, all other kids face the same challenges they do.
Our Core Eagles program and the Core SKILLZ® curriculum is specifically designed with kids from ages seven to nine in mind. We want to challenge them without overwhelming them – and our instructors know how to motivate them and keep them on track. They’ll learn to accept challenges with courage, not run from them.
