A Few Words
I’m Mike Ashwood, Owner here at International Karate & Self Defense.
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.
Does Your Child Have
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
your child will grow with every class!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
This is an exceptional place. Especially for my 5 year old son. Mike is amazing with the kids, he has a special gift, in working with children & he's funny too!
We also had my son's birthday here, and it was super easy and fun!!
This school is amazing. Mike Ashwood is phenomenal and successfully instructs all types of kids. I have personally seen him instruct children that have challenges that no one else might take on but Mike did - and they loved him! All of Mike's kids are black belts themselves and this is definitely a family business to be proud of. My son earned his black belt under his instruction and we are fans for life! The standards that this school sets are high and you would never regret attending here.
Mike Ashwood is fantastic with the kids, creating an environment that balances hard work with fun. My daughter recently became a black belt and I am so proud of the journey she has taken and know that it was such a great journey in part because of Mr. Ashwood and the environment he creates for the kids.
Mr. Ashwood was made for this job. My daughter loves working with each of the Ashwood family. Her self-esteem & confidence have grown to new heights.
I love this place. Mr. Ashwood is a great instructor. My dad and I started going here back when I was 14 and 9 years later, I'm getting back into it (after a 5 year hiatus) to work toward my 2nd degree black belt. If you live in Forney or the surrounding areas and are looking for a good place to learn martial arts, I highly recommend International Karate and Self Defense.
