A FEW WORDS
FROM SIGUNG DARRYL JAMES
I’m Sigung Darryl James Chief Instructor, and I with my wife Cheryl a practicing Child Psychotherapist and faculty member at San Diego State University and the proud owners of the James Martial Arts Academy.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus, and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body, and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. By learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness, and self-respect.
And of course, it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
DOES YOUR CHILD
NEED HELP IN THIS AREAS?
They tattle on others without accepting responsibility for their own actions.
They have a hard time coping with losses and setbacks and may not demonstrate good sportsmanship.
They don’t remember what you or their teachers tell them and struggle with paying attention.
PARENTING A CHILD IS HARDER THAN YOU MIGHT EXPECT
LUCKILY THERE IS A COMPREHENSIVE SOLUTION…
Kids between the ages of six and thirteen have done a lot of maturing, but that doesn’t mean that your job as a parent is any easier than it was before – it’s just different. Your child might have attained some degree of emotional control but still have a hard time reacting appropriately when disappointed or upset. Likewise, they might not be willing to accept blame when they do something wrong, and yet be very quick to point the finger at others and tattle.
Since kids this age tend to be intellectually very curious, it’s important to engage them on their level and provide them with continual challenges to keep them interested in what they’re doing. Martial arts instruction is ideal because of its structure of ongoing learning and measurable achievements.
YOUR CHILD WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
LIFELONG CHARACTER AND SUCCESS TRAITS
Your kids’ everyday friends aren’t the main concern anymore when it comes to character development. Now you have to worry about all the negative and harmful influences that the internet can introduce into your children’s lives. The true benefit or our classes are the character and success traits that are developed through martial arts training. Through learning the skills and techniques of martial arts, to the guidance and inspiration of our instructors and the positive social interaction with their fellow classmates, your kids will develop a whole list of skills.
Face it. Between the foods we eat and the constant sitting and staring into screens and devices, many kids aren’t getting enough regular exercise. Our martial arts classes for kids are full exercise routines disguised as a boatload of fun! That’s because they are jam packed with activities, games and drills that are all designed to disguise the repetition of training. Of course it’s important for your kids to exercise and wear themselves out – they stay healthy, sleep well, and develop their minds and bodies. But just as important, our classes will help develop at a young age the physical habits they need to grow into healthy adults.
SELF-DEFENSE FROM PREDATORS AND BULLIES
We never want our kids to have to use these skills in modern life, but every good parent still wants their kids to be safe. That’s why our martial arts training is very serious about teaching your kids the skills needed for self-protection in any circumstance, from the neighborhood bully to a stranger on the street (and so much more). But knowing how to defend oneself is only half the battle. Our classes teach your child the respect and self-discipline needed to diffuse a situation without violence whenever possible – as well as the knowledge to know when force is the only way to safety.
TONS OF F-U-N !!
We never forget… kids are kids and they deserve to have some fun! We can’t guarantee that their normal school teachers are making learning an enjoyable experience, but we DO guarantee that your kid will have a blast in our martial arts classes. It really is a challenge to design a class that keeps children focused on learning, respect, and discipline while still having fun… but our classes are created just for that. They are so full of ideas, activities, and games that your kids will never get bored or stagnate. It’s also a fantastic and healthy environment for them (and you) to make friends with other like-minded students. It really is a place where laughter, cheer and happiness abound.

Yes. Kids in the Essential Martial Arts Program program must pay attention to instructors and memorize moves if they wish to advance.
A fixation on fairness is common in kids of this age, but our program helps them understand that sometimes life isn’t fair – and also, to realize that in our martial arts school, all other kids face the same challenges they do.
Yes. One of the Essential Martial Arts Program we teach is courage, which requires kids to dodge targets. While the targets won’t hurt them, they show kids that they can face opposition and still succeed.
The Essential Martial Arts Program program teaches kids that they must be accountable for their own behavior and actions. Accountability is essential our martial arts school and it’s a key life skill that kids will take home with them when the class is over.
Our Essential Martial Arts Program helps kids to build focus and improve their memorization skills. Each of the skills we teach requires kids to remember what the instructors have told them and – in some cases – to memorize a series of moves. When kids learn how to memorize information, they can use that skill anywhere they need to use it – including in the classroom.
Our Core SKILLZ curriculum is specifically designed with kids from ages seven to nine in mind. We want to challenge them without overwhelming them – and our instructors know how to motivate them and keep them on track. They’ll learn to accept challenges, not run from them.
Yes. Kids at this age still have some issues with fine motor skills, and we know that they’ll have trouble with some of the moves we teach at first. Our goal is to help them gain control and build strength and agility.
