The Right Summertime Activity Provides Learning and Safety

Posted: July 03, 2019

Everyone loves the summer! A time when the schedule is a bit more relaxed and everyone can more easily enjoy recreational activities. Keeping your child from being a couch potato in the summer is important, but equally important is giving them the right kind of mental and physical stimulation.

While traditionally no one likes summer school, martial arts at Personal Best can be a very rewarding activity. Students have a more flexible schedule which allows each student to easily make progress at the same rate they do year round while still having plenty of time for the sun. It also provides a level of structure and reinforcement of vital self-defense skills to balance off the mounds of uninterrupted free time.

For the students craving a camp-type feel, we also have martial arts day camp which includes a variety of enjoyable fun themed days. The camp combines martial arts with awesome activities including super soakers, arts and crafts, relay races all run by professionally trained in-house Personal Best instructors who know how to reinforce the life lessons and codes of conduct you value. It is the benefit of keeping the mind sharp, the body strong, the stress down and the role model behavior firing on all cylinders.


The New Tough

Posted: June 22, 2019

By Master Christopher Rappold As parents we want the best for our children: do well in school, keep healthy plus have a strong social network of good friends.  We also want our children be “tough”.  In times past, that meant that young boys needed the courage and skill to fight the bully behind the building after school.   Like with almost everything, the definition of what “tough” means is more complex.  Tough now means that we want our children to be able to be tough enough to not follow the crowd, tough enough to hear the criticism and not lash back in anger, tough enough to stand tall against someone who is being picked on and be tough enough to be above having to resort to physical confrontation.
