Off the Mat
We prepare in the dojo,
but life’s greatest challenges will happen off the mats.

Why cheer from the sidelines when you can step out on the floor and experience everything you want for your child right at their side? Discuss what you learned. Let your child be a teacher. Learn how to be their coach. The only limits are your imagination. Strengthen familial relationships and give your child an opportunity to show you what they’ve learned. Fill the valuable role of “Trusted Adult”. Off the Mat creates the opportunity for you to further your child’s development in the martial arts and in life. Take the skills that they are learning in the dojo and translate them to where they matter most. Home. School. At a friend’s house. Out in the world.

Three Part Class Format:
1. Martial arts or fitness interactive coaching drills for home
2. Personal safety skills to be practiced with a training partner or trusted adult
3. Role playing exercises for improving life skills and bullying prevention and awareness
