The BEST karate studio in Florida. My four year old loves it! She has found serious confidence and self control, as well as a nice strong punch:) I highly recommend all if our friends come here.

Top notch dojo! They care about the children learning and understanding of not only karate fundamentals, but basic self respect and discipline which is lacking in most youth today. My granddaughters love attending classes. Kyoshi and Sinsai Coy are fare, but expect the children to put forth the effort required to move forward with their newly learned skills. Highly recommend to anyone thinking of entering their children in karate.

The best Karate school my son and I have ever had the privilege of attending. My son earned his black belt here after many years of hard work and training. They are absolutely excellent with children, reinforcing the invaluable lessons of respect, self discipline and focus. They are also great with adults of all ages, promoting a can-do attitude and friendship and teamwork amongst students present at no other dojo I have witnessed. Proud to be a student here of five years running. Ous!

Thumbs up!!!

Kyoshi and Sensei Coy are absolutely amazing. Our son attended their dojo for 7 months and learned so much. Not just about Karate, but about respect, appreciation and responsibility. I'd recommend this dojo to anyone, young or old. Well organized, always busy and focused. In addition, they both know ALL of the children's names and make each child feel welcome and involved. They also interact with parents and make them feel welcome. Most importantly, they legitimately care about each child and are true masters of their art. We are a military family and are transferring, otherwise we would stay with C.D. Williamson's dojo. If you go to this dojo, you will not regret it!

To the best Karate Dojo anywhere, thanks for a great week at Summer Camp! My 2 green belts are passed out snoozing from a tough, but inspiring week of training. I don't think I've ever seen so many professionals enjoy what they do as much as your Instructors! You guys rock!

No matter what these people will be my second family... This karate studio is much more than just people teaching your children how to punch or kick, these people will turn out to be your family. I recommend cd and his staff to anyone. " we are a black belt school, we more motivated , we are dedicated, were on a quest to be our best..." And they live up to that standard . Check them out for a free class and tell them sensei Tiffany sent you :)

Realistic Behavioral Expectations

What to Expect from 7 to 9 year old’s

 

The golden years for children are between the ages of 7 and 9 years old. At this age, children can grasp new information quickly. They start seeing the world in a new and exciting way and, because of this, they are beginning to develop their morals and values. And while they are making leaps and bounds in maturity, they still need a lot of guidance from adults in their lives.

Children between the ages of 7 and 9 years old are full of energy and their personalities are more distinct. They have an increased desire to be independent and they want to be recognized for their intelligence. Children at this age love interacting with others and enjoy making friends which leads to the sense of belonging they crave. And although they are exhibiting more independence, they still have a strong desire to be connected to the important adults in their lives and need approval from them.

The growth at this age is exciting to witness but can come with its own set of challenges for parents and teachers. This increased independence and sophisticated thinking leads to a more opinionated child. Children at this age may begin complaining about the fairness of rules and will argue their point of view. They also get distracted and almost seem to “space out” because they are intrigued by all the exciting things going on around them. Friendships blossom during this time but this often comes with the development of peer pressure because they begin valuing their friends opinions of them.

During the time between the ages of 7 and 9 years old, it is important for parents and teachers to guide children. Understanding where they are in this stage of development is vital to helping them be the most successful they can be. They will want to be independent but, they also want to be close to their parents. It is a very delicate balance. The key is to let them make choices and help with things but, when they need guidance, do so in a way that does not crush their growing autonomy.Our Junior Karate Program was specifically designed for children at this age. The goal of this program is to adapt to their adventurous attitude while building skills that set them up for success. Some of the goals of the program are to help them stay focused, persevere through tasks they find more difficult, show intensity on easy tasks, and show courage when trying something new. The highly trained CDW Karate instructors are also vital to the success of this program. Connecting with each student and utilizing edutainment are two of the most important laws of instruction when working with this age group.

The child-adult bond is of great importance at this stage of childhood. However, for this bond to help the child to develop in the best way possible, it is vital that the adults in their lives know what to expect. The balance between wanting independence and needing approval can be difficult but with the right guidance from adults, children can develop their autonomy from the encouragement of the adults in their lives.
