At Cheng's Martial Arts, we believe in strengthening the mind and body through self-discipline, fitness and awareness. Join in the fun! Learn the martial arts at our school, and get fit while making new friends and learning self-defense techniques.
Good martial arts training can teach children a lot about discipline and desire, commitment and goal-setting. It gives them a safe way to act out their aggressive impulses. And it helps build their self-confidence, too. A psychological study found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self- esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education.
Our belt system works as in indicator of the student's knowledge, skill, and attitude. Students will not receive a belt simply because they show up to class and are well behaved, they must earn their rank. We have trained staff of patient instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about limits.
We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school. Our program teaches practical, proven self-defense methods. We also teach the kids that the moves they learn in class will work, so they don’t go home and try them on their family members or neighbors.
