I've only been taking classes from here for approx. four months now, but I've learned so much in that short time. From day 1, everyone makes you feel like family and clearly wants to see you do your absolute best. A great school, full of great people!

Our experience with (Apexx) has been great. My son is learning such great skills and character traits from his instructors. I love how they teach respect and discipline. I can tell that it's making him pay closer attention to adults. And he's setting goal after goal because he wants to be like his instructors. For me, I'm very happy because I'm seeing a lot of growth in him.

We really enjoyed our trial experience at WR Martial Arts. I was very impressed with how they interacted with my rowdy 3 year old and have seen a big difference in his behavior at home. My 5 year old also learned A LOT in a very short amount of time. We are giving our kids a chance to check out some different sports but if they decide they want to continue with Taekwondo - we will definitely be coming back here! Great staff and program.

My son had his 9th B-day party here and oh my gosh...so much fun!! The kids loved it! Never a dull moment. Games, food, class and a beautiful sword to cut the cake with. Best part...he keeps the sword! What a great addition to a great day. Great value! My son will remember this party for a long time.

Request Information

Does your 6 to 9-year-old need to learn self-discipline and emotional control?

The Basic SKILLZ program teaches young kids to be focused and to manage emotional outbursts in a fun, educational setting.

At times, it can be easy for teachers and parents to overestimate 5 and 6-year-old kids. They’re better at following instructions and paying attention than younger kids, but they still may need some help in controlling themselves and focusing on tasks.

A Few Words

From Doug Rankin

I’m Doug Rankin, Owner here at Apexx.

As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.

But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.

Because 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 character.

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 this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.

So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.

Thanks!

DOES YOUR 6-9 YEAR OLD

NEED HELP IN THESE AREAS?

They have trouble focusing and don’t look at you when you speak to them.

They get angry easily and small things may cause them to lose control.

They lack the discipline to follow through on tasks without being reminded.

PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT

Kids that are 5-6 years old have slightly more control than younger kids, but they still have a lot to learn when it comes to controlling themselves, their bodies, and their emotions. They’re intellectually curious, but they need to learn in a disciplined setting.

Our program gives kids the tools they need to succeed later in life. They learn the importance of self-discipline and control while building on the basic martial arts skills they learned in the Early SKILLZ program.

YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!

Basic SKILLZ teaches kids to control their bodies and behavior in a fun, social environment that encourages cooperation and respect. They learn about teamwork, discipline, memory, and balance while practicing coordination and learning key martial arts moves.

PHYSICAL FITNESS AND BALANCE

When they are young, kids may struggle to control their bodies when they’re in motion.

The basic martial arts skills taught in the Skillz program help them build muscle and improve their coordination.

COMPLEX MEMORY SKILLS

At this age, children easily forget strings of more than three commands. They may also be unable to tell their left from their right.

Our program teaches them to focus on complex instructions and to know how to follow left and right commands without hesitation.

STAY IN CONTROL EVEN WHEN THEY EXPERIENCE STRONG EMOTIONS

Six to nine-year-old kids tend to lose focus when they’re excited – and to shut down when they’re sad or scared.

In our Basic SKILLZ program, they are taught to maintain control even when they are excited – and to stay focused even when it is difficult to do so.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP

Young kids tend to be competitive – and they don’t handle losing very well.

In our program, they learn how to be good competitors, and that includes learning how to accept defeat gracefully and be supportive of their peers.

Amazing staff, they truly care about their students. This has been such a positive experience for our children, looking forward to continuing our kid's training at Apexx.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.

Our students learn the value of discipline as they pursue clearly-defined goals.

Martial arts instruction teaches kids how to accept defeat and learn from their mistakes.

Martial arts helps kids build core strength, balance, and physical coordination.
