LIFE SKILLS AND
Character development, that happens only through Martial Arts training right here at Shaw’s National Karate Institute, is one of the biggest benefits and gifts you can give your child AND yourself - for life. In today’s society, discipline
is greatly lacking. Teaching discipline, respect and courtesy is one of our main focuses here, and one of the major benefits of enrolling
your child in Shaw’s National Karate Institute.
We teach our students to live
by Five Codes which are Respect, Loyalty, Confidence, Responsibility
and Honor. Instilled in our students is the idea that these
behaviors are not simply a set of qualities to demonstrate only in
certain situations. Instead, in totality, they define a “way of
being” at all times. Whether it is in the dojang (karate school),
home, school, work, or with friends, all of our students, from our
preschool “Mini Mites” and “Ninja Turtles” to our adults, are
expected to consistently demonstrate these qualities as lifestyle
choice in order to be true to our style and the Martial Arts. For
example, we teach respect by requiring students to “Answer Up!”, say
“Yes, Sir!” or “Yes, Ma’am!” when addressing other students, adults
and Instructors. The Five Codes are major “life skills” that are
cornerstones of Shaw’s National Karate Institute's
SELF CONFIDENCE, SELF
RESPECT, SELF ESTEEM AND SELF DISCIPLINE
As your child
develops here at Shaw’s National Karate Institute, you’ll notice that an
amazing transformation takes place. And, we can help
your child’s confidence grow. How? We start by giving him or her
attainable goals with positive reinforcement. For example, in the beginning, we give students with
simple, fundamental techniques to master until they reach higher
belt rank. We do not make the bar high in the beginning because we
want the students to build positive momentum, to give them
confidence in their ability to learn martial arts.
With these types
of approach, you’ll see your child having a better posture, better
eye contact and a loud clear voice, which are signs of a confident
person. At Shaw’s National Karate Institute, we will provide positive
experiences for all our students, and offer tangible goals and
rewards, in our children's and adult programs (see programs page!), that help you and your child to stay focused and
MARTIAL ARTS TRAINING KEEPS KIDS AND ADULTS MOVING! NO ONE SITS ON THE BENCH!
Of all the lifestyle factors
affecting the health and wellness of American citizens, physical
fitness is unquestionably the most important. Today’s children have
many weight and health problems due to lack of exercise. Modern day
technology and lack of gym classes in today's public and private school systems are
hurting our children. And to make matters worse, recent studies have also demonstrated that even kids who participate in "team" sports - like baseball, football or basketball - do not get enough physical fitness activity!
Shaw’s National Karate Institute can help you increase cardiovascular health, better muscle strength and endurance,
flexibility, weight maintenance, and stress management while having fun. Sahbumnim Shaw always says that, "Physical Conditioning is the foundation of Mental Toughness". You WILL become fit AND physically and mentally tough.
Unfortunately, today’s society can be a
dangerous and threatening place for kids and adults. The
self-defense skills your child will learn at Shaw’s National Karate Institute
can literally save their life. While most parents don’t enroll their
children here specifically for this reason, it is a powerful benefit
of training at Shaw’s National Karate Institute.
Verbal and physical bullying
is another big threat for kids these days. Unfortunately, one out of
every four children will be a victim of a bully at some point this
year. And one out of every five children admits to be a bully
him/herself! The martial arts skills your child will learn here at
Shaw’s National Karate Institute is a highly effective solution to
schoolyard, workplace and even - cyber bullying. We teach kids (as well as
adults) the physical and mental skills they need to defend themselves in all types of
different situations. Ask about our "Stranger Danger" and "Verbal Judo" programs.

National Karate Institute is just that - A FAMILY. From the never ending
