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!
STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They always seem to take the easy way out when presented with anything difficult.
They make poor choices and tend not to think things through.
They put their friends and social obligations ahead of their family.
PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
Parenting kids in their pre-teen and early teenage years is its own special challenge. Kids at this age have huge potential, but an equally huge tendency to get mired down in laziness and posturing for their friends. It can be frustrating for parents to watch their kids waste their abilities – and parents are often anxious for a way to get their kids moving in a positive direction. When kids resist parental involvement and give their friends more consideration than their families, it can be distressing for parents.
The key to getting through to kids at this age is to hold their feet to the fire when it comes to putting in the necessary work to achieve their goals. They need firm instruction and regular goals to keep them on track.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Our Extreme Eagles program with exclusive, age-appropriate SKILLZ® Worldwide curriculum is specifically designed to help kids between the ages of 10 and 14 to achieve their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social goals. We teach kids physical dexterity, versatility, and precision while also helping them to trust their instincts and build their strength.
DILLIGENCE WITH CHALLENGES
Kids learn the importance of doing things well.
At this age, kids may be prone to take the easy way out of challenges.
Our Extreme Eagles SKILLZ® program teaches them to value precision and to pay attention to details instead of settling for a sloppy solution to their problems.
BETTER DECISION MAKING
We give kids the tools to make smart decisions.
Preteens and teens sometimes make poor decisions because they lack the judgment to see the big picture.
Extreme Eagles SKILLZ® classes teach kids to make smarter decisions by showing them the dangers of jumping to conclusions.
Students learn to evaluate their motives and pay attention to their emotions.
Kids sometimes react without thinking about their motivations.
In the Extreme Eagles program, students learn to understand their true emotional motivation and to understand the difference between a good motivation and a bad one.
SELF BELIEF & CONFIDENCE
We teach kids not to worry what others think of them.
Peer pressure plays a big role as kids get older, and they sometimes struggle with worrying about what others think.
We teach kids to care less about what other people think of them and more about what they think of themselves.
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.
Have been here for 1 year already and joining Yonsei is the best decision I have probably ever made
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.
This place is excellent for physical activity and mental training, discipline. My two daughters like this. It’s fun for them and they enjoy every class. They always do different physical activity every time, so it’s great!!
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!
