if you want your child to...

lets gooo.jpg

be excited about coming to practice

burn a lot of energy

learn how to defend themselves 

build their focusing power

explore new things with confidence

welcome to mo kwon do

child training footwork.jpg

we focus on behavior shaping

fun first, then shaping energy into focused effort

because we know, if the kid doesn't have fun, they won't want to come, meaning they won't learn.

we are more than child care

respect bow.jpg

we are a physical awareness and wellness center

we talk about emotions and how to focus

we are a self defense, situational awareness, and confidence building organization

what we do not do...

raise our voices at your kids

punish behavior

teach children to hit others or use violence in conflicts 

tell kids to avoid standing up for themselves

what we do instead...

get down to their eye level and speak to them softly

~pause~ for emphasis

ignore disruptive behavior, proudly reinforce desired behavior 

strong eye contact, firm words to tell others "hands off" 

if they attack you, defend and counter.
