You'll often hear stores about children who have undergone complete transformations after enrolling in classes at the local martial art studio.  However, what people fail to mention is that self-defense training doesn't just benefit youngsters.  In fact, this type of activity can prove to be an excellent choice for everyone from kindergartners to retirees.  That's why the Twinsburg Academy of Self-Defense in Twinsburg, Ohio offers youth, teen, and adult martial art classes.  Students of all ages have already discovered how beneficial martial arts can be as a fitness tool as well as a character-building activity.  By taking the opportunity to learn more about the Minna Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kung Fu, T'ai Chi, and meditation classes available at this local martial art school, you'll have a better understanding of how the Twinsburg Academy can improve your body and mind, and enliven your spirit.

Since martial arts are frequently praised for their effects on the little ones, it only makes sense to start with the youngest group at the Twinsburg Academy, our 5-7 year olds.  Martial art class is great for those with a lot of energy to burn.  In addition to teaching patience and self-control, martial art helps in developing hand/eye coordination, balance, strength, and flexibility.  Though some parents believe their children won't have the attention span for such an activity, those who enroll at the Twinsburg Academy of Self-Defense in Northeast Ohio quickly discover that the exceptional Senseis (instructors) know how to grab their kids attention and hold it.

Our next age group is children between the ages of 8-13.  This is the age group that first understands what martial arts and self-defense is all about.  The Twinsburg Academy of Self-Defense uses this time to focus on self-defense training and character building.  By enrolling in our program your own child will learn important lessons about conflict resolution, responsibility, discipline, and more.  As an added bonus, the Twinsburg Academy assigns Life Skill homework to students in this program designed to teach the kind of positive values parents strive to instill in their children.

Many parents also encourage their teenagers to get involved in our martial art school.  The Twinsburg Academy provides teens with countless tools they'll use in college and beyond.  As with the younger children's courses, teen martial art classes put an emphasis on character building.  This is a time in which adolescents can grow withdrawn or rebellious.  Regular participation in our Minna Jiu-Jitsu, Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kung Fu, and T'ai Chi classes gives teens a space to explore their boundaries and take responsibility for their actions.  They gain confidence in themselves and their abilities.  Our teens appreciate the interaction with their adult co-students where they are treated as equals rather than children.

Some adults are under the impression they're too old or out of shape to participate in martial arts.  However, a number of our adult students will tell you this just isn't true.  Adult martial art classes can be extremely beneficial to adults and senior adults as they offer a fun yet challenging workout.  Plus, many find that martial art classes help to reduce stress and calm the mind.

Overall, there isn't one age group that can't benefit from time spent at our NE Ohio martial art school.  If you and your children have been looking for an activity that can be shared with the whole family all year long you'll find that the Twinsburg Academy of Self-Defense has the best program around.  To learn more about our offerings at any of our three NE Ohio schools visit our website TheAcademyOfSelf-Defense.com or give us a call in Twinsburg at (330) 237-9594, Akron (330) 814-5058, or Mayfield Heights (440) 409-6954.
