My daughter Isabella is obsessed with the Ninja Warrior class. It not only has helped her physical abilities and social skills but has taught her an important lesson about trying your best and not giving up! Dan and all the coaches are so nice. Everyone loves an owner who cares about each individual customer. We have not been there in a year and when I called to book my daughter's 6th birthday party, Dan remembered exactly who my daughter and I were. They have even taken suggestions and altered the class times to make it easier for us parents to make sure our kids can do what they love! Looking forward to joining back up with the new class schedule and even more excited for my daughter's birthday party which will no doubt be a blast (and not to mention far more affordable than any other place I looked at).

My 2 boys have been going to All Heart Academy 3x a week for the last 18 months and there is no stopping them now! They love the classes and are staying fit, learning how to protect themselves and how to work hard. Their enthusiasm has rubbed off and I started the adult strike class 2x a week! Such a great and rewarding workout. Can't say enough about Coach Dan, Coach Kevin and Coach Justin!

Coach Dan and his instructors at All Heart Academy’s Kids MMA program have helped my sons and other children in immeasurable ways. The students all improve their impulse control and discipline while increasing self-confidence and body awareness. Over the years I have seen the kids have fun while learning very effective self-defense. I’ve observed timid new students, get on the mats and in a short time transform into more athletic and confident version of themselves through this program and Coach Dan’s infectious “can do” attitude. They always have a great student to instructor ratio to ensure the necessary personal attention is provided for student growth. It is a physically challenging program which builds strength, balance and improving agility. Best of all; the students never get bored!! This is NOT “traditional karate” which many kids today find unexciting; this is truly mixed martial arts where they blend boxing, kick boxing, jiu-jitsu and wrestling into every class. All students develop athletically and personally while immersed in this fantastic program.

My son has been going to All Heart for a little over a month. It all started with a boy scout event here and ever since...he's been hooked. The people that work here, especially the owner Dan Heart, really care about the kids and making sure they are getting what they need out of every class. This place means a lot to my son and he has formed such a great friendship with one of his scout buddies that also goes here. We drive 40 minutes to get here 2-3 times a week. Thank you Dan and the All Heart staff for putting your heart into these kids!! The name of the business suits the place very well because you are ALL HEART!

Life Skill – Respect

This month’s life skill is RESPECT: a feeling or understanding that someone or something is important, serious, etc, and should be treated in an appropriate way.

Dear Parents,

This month we will focus on the character lesson: RESPECT. One of the most important things you can teach your children is respect. Some parents think that respect is the same thing as obedience. Children will obey a parent because they are afraid, but if they respect you, they will obey you because they know that you know what is best for them.

Here is a guideline regarding children and respect based on age:

* With children ages 3 and 4; they are just learning how to act appropriately with others. Teach them how to have good manners such as saying “please” and “thank you.”

* With children ages 5 and 6; they are learning that the way they act will have an affect on others, both positively and negatively. Teach them how to have good sportsmanship.

* With children ages 7 and 9; they are becoming more independent and making their own decisions. Teach them about self-respect.

* With children ages 10 and up; they are at an age where identity and popularity becomes important. Teach them about having respect for their friends by not gossiping or bullying.

Children can learn respect simply by following your good example. Make sure that you do not talk down to your children, embarrass them, or belittle them. This will only make them shut down. Another way to build respect is to give them a chance to make decisions and give their point of view. Also make sure you reinforce respectful behavior when it is demonstrated at home and in public. As a parent, if you can nurture a respectful environment in your home, then your children will naturally become more respectful and it will carry over to other areas of their life.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to watching our youthful students demonstrate the utmost respect for themselves and others.

Sincerely,

Coach Dan

 

 

 

What are some ways to show respect?

-Being polite and having manners

I.e. Saying yes ma’am/sir and no ma’am/sir, saying please/thank you, opening the door for someone, etc…

-Paying attention when someone is talking to you

Making sure that you are listening and have good eye contact

-Asking permission for things

Asking instead of just taking. I.e. can I play with your toys, can I please have _______, can I borrow______, etc…
