Students of the Week
We always pick a student of the week and give them something to show they earned it. We look for students who elevate the class and make them all stronger, influencing them in a positive way. We also look for students who have been working on something like self-control in class and highlight them making an effort to improve.
Our merit badges rotate out monthly and are a way to get students to practice off the mat. Whether it’s a blocking set, kicking set, or pushup merit badge, kids are constantly trying to earn them. We encourage fitness goals for kids and disguise repetition with our badges. Kids can improve their discipline by looking at their training in a new way.
Student of the Month
Every month we pick a student who has been exceptional all month long. We honor them with a small plaque and post them up on the wall so that we can remember their achievement and contribution to the school!
5 Animal Character Program
We offer free character cards to parents who enroll their children in our martial arts program. These cards have self-control, discipline, leadership, honesty, and respect on them with examples of each. Parents review the card with kids daily, marking it off every day the child does well. They return the cards to the school and receive a patch, wristband, or star. When they complete all 5 they receive a five animal patch.
We want our students to learn how to influence their friends for the things they believe in. If they enjoy the martial arts they can invite friends to come to leadership week. Students are awarded with a special stripe and token for having a positive impact on their friends’ lives.
