Karate edge is an amazing group of people. They have the most supportive staff/instructors that have helped my son build confidence and help guide him through developing lifestyle skills while building character and have helped him in developing into the young man he is becoming. I can’t explain the impact karate edge has had on our family and I look forward to see the changes they help bring our family. Thank you to everyone at karate edge for all you do, our family loves you and appreciates you all ❤️❤️

This is such a great place! My son has been going sense he was maybe 8 and he is now 18. They say it takes a village to raise our child and I believe this is part of our village. Tony and Alicia and some of the team have been there for our son all these years, I believe they have taught him many things, not just Karate. Thank you Karate Edge. ❤️

I cannot express how great this program has been for my son. He has learned so much and most importantly he really enjoys it. He is learning respect, dedication and that hard work pays off! I love to see how proud he is when he comes home with a new achievement and always wants to demonstrate what he learned in class. He also has started to study karate masters and the Japanese language and is getting quite good! Karate Edge has been a stable place for him through the last 2 years where everything has been uncertain. Even if only with zoom meetings the team kept up their commitment to the kids. Thank you for all you do!

This karate school has it all: great classes for the entire family or just for yourself, a fun work hard yet laid back approach, and the most caring and amazing instructors around! Plus, the most fun kick butt kickboxing classes around!

Love this place! All instructors are very passionate and friendly, approachable and respectful to students. Moving up is based on skill and kids work hard to earn their next belt stripe and belt. My son felt welcome from day one because the atmosphere here is so family like. I have seen the kids help each other as well. Recommended to all! You can learn great martial art skills in a fun and friendly environment.

This place is amazing! It is the first time my son has participated in a structured activity without any fear or hesitation. The instructors make everyone feel welcome and a part of the group. They are great with kids and give them a huge self esteem boost! We love Karate Edge.

My best friend loves this school and she invited me to a class and I loved it! The first class I was doing the same thing as everyone else and I was paired with a black belt who was able to teach me the exact way I needed so I could at least keep up!
It was an awesome experience and as soon as my two kiddos are old enough they'll be taking a couple classes a week here =) #bestkarateschool

My daughter begged us for a karate birthday party and I'm so glad we chose Karate Edge! From our initial planning meeting, to the set-up of the room (Jen did a beautiful job!!), to all of the drills, skills & games during the party...we couldn't have asked for more! All of the instructors were so, so great! They kept the kids moving and laughing with the games, while still managing to teach some karate skills and principles at the same time. We will definitely be looking into classes, and I won't be at all surprised if my daughter asks for a karate party again next year. Thank you, Karate Edge!

Rebuilding Intellectual Skills During the Summer

Rebuilding Intellectual Skills During the Summer

Summer break is typically viewed as a time for relaxation, fun, and no schedules. However, considering the dramatic change in our lives over the past year and seeing communities begin opening back up in a full capacity now, this summer would be the perfect time to get children back on track. As unfortunate as it is, the reality is that most children’s development has been stifled in one, if not all, areas. Cognitive performance has been significantly affected since schools have had limited options for learning, and for some children, these choices are not as conducive to learning. To counteract this, we must engage children in a program that fosters brain development and learning.

As most parents have witnessed over the past year, the COVID slide is a real thing. Children’s cognitive performance has decreased dramatically, and the learning loss that has been associated with this has left everyone feeling the pressure to regain momentum. And while parents and teachers have attempted to implement methods that boost learning, the drastic change from a “normal” school experience has led to extreme detriments in our children’s education. Many experts believe that children, on average, have lost around three months of learning progress over the past year. To some, however, this may not seem like a lot. But when we understand how rapidly childrens brains grow and how all experiences are significant to their development, this length of time can be detrimental.

Now, as progress continues to be made towards loosening up on restrictions, it’s time to get children’s brains rebooted and turn their brain “strains” into “brain gains.” There are a host of tutoring programs that can help children catch up to where they should be academically. However, most of these programs don’t incorporate any motivation or fun. And since we know that children’s motivation is at an all-time low due to the trauma they’ve experienced this past year, it’s best to engage them in a program that not only benefits them cognitively but also increases their motivation while they have fun.

Since children learn best through play, a program that enhances cognitive development in an environment that is safe and fun is the ultimate win-win. The SKILLZ Child Development Centers offer a program that incorporates both of these while also enhancing physical, emotional, and social growth. This 4D approach encourages the most remarkable progress. The use of alternative methods of learning causes active learning to be engaged, thereby initiating working memory. As new neural connections are made, fluid intelligence improves. One technique known as neurobics is very effective in priming the brain for learning. This, coupled with procedures that boost positive chemicals in the brain, gives children the best shot at counteracting the effects of the COVID slide.

As the summer gets underway soon, now is the time to engage children in a program that will boost skills in all developmental areas and give them a jumpstart on the next school year. By utilizing methods that are fun and involve play, children’s motivation will increase and, as a result, their intellectual development will improve and give them the appropriate skills needed to start a new school year.
