I met a couple of people from Focus martial arts at another unrelated martial arts event. One of the instructors, who's name sadly escapes me, was helping my mum with her kata and being incredibly patient and helpful to her. It reflected very well on him as an instructor! Thank you for your help.

I needed a place where my son could grow physically and mentally, a place that demanded respect. I was extremely impressed by Focus Martial Arts, look forward to many great years here.

I would highly recommend Focus Martial Arts my son Sean who is on the autism spectrum just came out of a class and he is more than ecstatic to come back. The teacher was very nice and engaging and took his time explaining to my son the multiple positions and moves during his one on one session. He was so encouraging and motivating to my son to keep going and to keep Focus during the class.

I'm very happy with the progress my son has made at Focus Martial Arts! His confidence has improved and his skills are so much sharper. Shihan Marco is highly respected by his students and they put in the work and focus he demands while still having plenty of fun!
Thanks so much Shihan!

Our daughter, six, has been at student of Shihan’s for over a year. She’s now a yellow belt and excited to strive for the orange belt.
Shihan is terrific- he’s kind but firm with a great sense of humor that keeps even the most easily distracted kids engaged.
Karate and Shihan have taught our daughter more than we hoped for- focus, patience, self respect, confidence, persistence, and much more.

We had our daughter’s birthday party here and it was fantastic! Organized, professional and the kids had a blast. They have more than enough help on hand to assure the kids are safe while enjoying themselves. You pick out a theme and they take care of the decorations, cake/food and even prepare the digital invitation. In addition, our daughter attended a couple of the Saturday afternoon activities and had a great time. Thanks so much!

Can’t say enough wonderful things about Focus Martial Arts! Hands down the best extra curricular for our preschooler. Shihan is AMAZING with both the kids and their parents!

This was the best party ever. My 6 year old and friends had a great time, were fully engaged in all the games and activities. The decorations, attention to detail and excellent customer service. I had no idea what to expect and was completely blown away by Shihan Marco and his team. Thank you for such an incredible day!! I’d give more than five stars if I could.

I really love the Focus Martial Arts program. My son has been going there for several months and we can see so many positive changes. He is more confident and loves going to karate. The Sensei is amazing with the kids. Having 15+ 4-6 year olds can be a challenge to anyone, but this guy knows how to keep the kids focused. As an added bonus, he makes the class fun for parents to watch. I would definitely recommend Focus Martial Arts to anyone interested in their child learning karate, respect and having fun.

My son had his 5th birthday party here and loved it. It was stress free for me and fun for the kids. They gave all the guests and my son a free week trial and he just completed it. He loved it so much that we have officially enrolled in classes and he is beyond excited.

Training Dates with your FocusedKids

You may hear your child’s instructor talking about practice time at home fairly often. This is because practicing can have a huge impact on a FocusedKid’s ability to perform in class which will lead to more confidence. With more confidence comes the ability to achieve faster and farther!

Another great benefit to practicing at home is that this will allow YOU – the parent, an outlet to connect over something they are passionate about.

Often times parents feel like they have to go on extravagant outings and spend long periods of time to build that connection. But this can also lead to allowing perfectionism to stop us from finding opportunities. Maybe the location is booked, or the activities just aren’t good enough.

Setting aside time to practice with your FocusedKid can be just as fulfilling and allow you the ability to connect more often! Wouldn’t that be great!?
Here are a few tips to help you master practice time:

1) Don’t worry about consistency
Wait, What!? For real! Don’t worry about making it an everyday thing (at first). Whenever you have some free time and the opportunity is there, take it! This allows you to start off easy, start by practicing for a few minutes whenever they pop up and build from there. The goal would be to build to a set schedule, but the keyword is “build”. Focus on staying in the moment and grabbing them whenever possible.

2) Simplicity
Don’t over think it. You do want to practice what your FocusedKid will be doing in class, but it does not need to be perfect. You do not have to correct everything. Focus on connection and not perfection. Keep the smiles coming and laughs loud as you give your ninja your undivided attention.

3) Take advantage of your surroundings
If you are in a park, do some jumping kicks. Find a tree (or maybe a bush!) with some low hanging leaves and see if you can kick that high. In a grocery store, how about a game of “Think Fast”, just don’t break anything! If you are in a waiting room, ask to see their form or ask them to show you’re their blocks and strikes while sitting.

4) Improvise
If your FocusedKid has chores, take some time and do them together! You can easily turn sweeping the house, raking leaves, shoveling snow into an epic lightsaber battle! Improvise! Wax on Wax off, find a way to make it fun by including your martial arts and be creative!

These tips should help you find more ways to practice with your FocusedKid. More importantly, remember that this is about connecting with your kids so have fun and smile!

Sincerely,
Focus Martial Arts
