Children are naturally full of energy and need an outlet for it. At LINX Martial Arts, children will develop unshakable confidence, laser-like focus, and powerful self-control because they are doing movements they love and which come naturally to them!
Every martial arts student receives a complimentary gi (short for Karate Gi or karategi) to wear to each class.
LINX Martial Arts students learn focus and lengthen their attention span when they are doing something that they enjoy doing—jumping, leaping, punching, chopping, and kicking. To the student's benefit, they are moving this way in an environment that is safe and has boundaries for non-contact. Additionally, if you give any developing child a big task to do, most likely they will forget many steps. The kata aspect of martial arts training—a detailed choreographed pattern of movements, which we practice in unison—teaches the ordering of small steps to achieve success, proper technique, and attention to detail. Finally, our program supports decision making, whether it’s waiting to begin, waiting for a turn, or spinning in a circle. It's this decision making that leads them to greater self-awareness and control. We finish each class with meditation to calm our bodies, settle our thoughts, and integrate the lessons from the class.
Each class also includes history of martial arts and lessons on the integrity of martial arts.
LINX Kung Fu teaches a striking style of martial arts that utilizes kicks, blocks, and both open and closed hand strikes to defend against attackers. Students will deepen their confidence, focus, and self-control!
