A Few Words
I’m Shihan Pablo, Owner / Head Instructor here at Acadiana Karate.
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. Through 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 Have
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless
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.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
your child will grow with every class!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
This school has not only AMAZING owners, but a fantastic staff as well. They truly care for each and every one of their students! Acadiana karate not only teaches the art of self defense and works along your child's readiness to advance, but also teaches them self discipline that carries over to your child's home life, they are very emphatic about teaching respect for the art of karate so as to make sure your child doesn't become a "bully" simply because they gain knowledge of fight techniques and self defense. In addition to ALL that, they instill respect for their parents, their teachers, themselves, and others. I could go on and on, but to sum up, Acadiana Karate, Sensei Stacy and Shihan are the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!
Ashlyn(my daughter) started karate when she was 4 years old. She is 13 years old now and has worn every uniform, and participated in every club available. Sensei Kelly knows my daughter almost better than I do. It's more than the focus, respect, honesty, and constant reach for excellence. As an overprotective parent, I am really picky about keeping my tween busy and out of trouble. I am so thankful for everyone at Acadiana Karate for all that they do. Sensei Kelly is a great role model that continues to contribute to the woman that Ashlyn will become.
I have been associated with Acadiana Karate for over 14 years - first as a parent, then a student, and now as an instructor. Daily I get to the see benefits of the martial arts program at Acadiana Karate for all who participate but one student in particular stands out. As a teacher at a local elementary school during the day, I met a kindergarten student who never smiled, and cried not to go to school. He began karate in the first grade. His first day in the Little Ninja class was the first time in a year that I saw this boy smile - and he's been seen smiling and happy at school ever since. This student is currently the student of the month in his first grade class. His teacher states that he is self confident in his interactions with classmates and teachers. The school guidance counselor attributes his success to karate. " Karate has done wonders for him," she tells me every time she sees me.
My son loves this school. He has come out of his shell! He is confident and strong.
