School Pressure, Peer Pressure, Instilling Proper Values, Demanding Extra Curricular Activities
I know what parents like you are facing these days. I have met parents just like you and I have to tell you, and being a father of two, it's a tough time for kids these days.
Most parents are dealing with these daily demands as well as they can, but sometimes there are shuttle signs of the pressure are obvious. When new students come into our school we often see:
It is typically not spiteful, they just have a really hard time keeping focused and on task
Shoulders down, eyes cased on the floor, refuses to make eye contact and frozen in fear
Parents and adults will often see this as a lack of respect (It is NOT! But it is something important to overcome)
It is actually hard for a child to see past the “here and now” and keep at something consistently
It is extremely hard to be a child and have adults telling you all day what to do. Some children just withdraw, shut down and lose their sense of motivation.
Childhood Obesity is not just a new catchword. When Xbox, Minecraft, iPads and Smartphones are a low cost, getting your child off the couch and moving is a really challenging.
But Wait There's Hope!
We have purposely designed our martial arts classes to support your child in the development of the life skills they need to work through their challenges and become the self-confident, proficient adolescents that we all know they can be.
What parents are saying about our program...
My nine-year-old daughter has been learning Kosho-Ryu from "Sifu" Darryl James for several years now. Her self-discipline, overall physical conditioning and self-defense knowledge are noticeably stronger as she continues with Darryl's classes. Classes are small and each participant gets Sifu's full attention as they practice the Kosho-Ryu forms and techniques.
The classes are fun and disciplined at the same time. Darryl doesn't let anybody sneak by and move forward unless they're ready. Kosho-Ryu is not just an outstanding physical self-defense system, either... it incorporates philosophy regarding respect for others.
I would recommend the James Kosho-Ryu Academy for adults and kids alike!

Wonderful instruction. Darryl has made a safe and focused learning environment for all ages. My two children have been attending this Martial Arts Academy for a few years now and we are so happy with the growth we have seen in our kids with their focus, technique, confidence, and their understanding of martial arts--they love it. He teaches fundamentals, proper technique, patience, responsibility, meaning, and conditioning. We are very involved and watch every class and could not be happier with our choice.

Instilling Ethics, Peer & School Pressures, Demanding Extra Curricular Activities
It Can All Change
Within Weeks, Parents Tell Me They See Their Children Learn:
Confidence, particularly in our Martial Arts classes, is the difference between what a child can actually do vs. what they think they can do. You will see them develop greater and greater self-confidences, and confront new and difficult challenges both inside and outside of our school with a sense of motivation and purpose.
If they ever need it, your child will unquestionably be able to defend themselves physically. However it is far more importantly, in this zero tolerance environment they will be able to fend off the mental assault of peer pressure and the emotional weight of bullying and unkind behavior. These are things they will desperately need as they navigate in this world.
One of the most essential thing your child will gain from our classes is a tremendously positive sense of self. They will be able to independently recognize things they need to improve (e.g.; physical effort, family interaction and homework) without feeling discouraged, and they will take pride in the things they get right without disregarding or lessening their accomplishments. This will be invaluable treat for them as adults, which only martial arts provides.
If you want kids to stay healthy, they have to enjoy their exercise. Our classes are so much fun, your child will beg to come. They’ll actually love doing pushups, jumping jacks and crunches. They’ll take pride in their improved flexibility and stamina, and they’ll leave class everyday sweating and smiling.
You Might Ask...But How?
How? The Answer is not brain surgery, and to be honest, I feel blessed to have discovered it 27 years ago. It's straightforward and subtle, but when you see it in person (particularly as a parent) It is
almost Mysterious. "The Answer" resolves every one of the issues we previously mentioned, and many more.

Frequently Asked Questions

Actually, no. I know it might seems counterintuitive, the reality is that because our Martial Arts students like the physical part of our classes (the punching, kicking, blocking, exercises, self-defense, forms and everything else) they are willing to listen and apply the CORE Values of Martial Arts (discipline, patience, self-control, thinking before acting, etc.).
The traditional martial arts style really does work. Our students develop so much confidence in their ability they know they can de-escalate most situations and not use their Martial Arts training outside of the studio because they don't want to injury anyone. You really have to see it to believe it.
We see this day in and day out, and truthfully, it can definitely be a challenge for all parties involved, However, like I said, we see it day in and day out, and it is one of the most rewarding part of my job is to help your child learn to overcome their anxieties. In real world activities, hesitation and shyness is a real crutch; the coach or teacher are often aggravated, and the shy child will hold the class back. However, because we focus on the individual, it doesn't hurt our class at all. When your child starts to believe that we are going to help him/her anyways if whether he/she is shy or brave, they will open up and it will start a series of events of confidence building that you will drop your jaw. We know because we see children grow each and every day.

Our programs fit into almost any schedule (please remember, each family that take classes with us are very busy too!). We have students who are effective in our program at only once day a week, and we have students who love classes so much that they plead with their parents to bring them every time we are open.
If you enter your email we will send you to the next page where we will show you our schedule and special trial offer. If you have questions about the schedule (it may not be clear which class is right for your child), there's an area on that page to ask questions of me.
Our physical curriculum is designed to work to improve your child's fitness level, strength, and flexibility. Our Character for Life curriculum improves your moral compass and Life Skills. Are curriculum rotates through important subjects such as Kindness, Focus, Respect, Discipline, Patience, Acceptance, Compassion and more.
I feel privileged every day to teach and pass on these life skills on to our next leaders
Absolutely! We always start with a Trial Program. It is very important not only for you as a prospective student to have the ability to make sure our program will be beneficial to your child. The trial program ensures it appropriately meets your goals as parents.
We will teach life lessons, challenge limits, and we set short & long terms goals. So it is imperative that our values are similar before we begin that life changing journey.
Safety is always my number one priority. While you risk injury anytime you choose to participate in any activity, in my experience, I see fewer injuries in our classes than in other children’s activities such as (football, baseball, softball, football, etc.).
We occasionally receive calls from parents informing us their child cannot come to class due to, they were injured in a different activity.
