If you’re like me, you want the best for your kids – good marks at school, lots of friends, excellence at sports and team events. You also know how frustrating it can be to see your child holding back from doing their best, not because they can’t do something, but because they lack confidence and self-esteem.
Doctors and psychologists say that high self-esteem is one of the most important character traits for children to have in order to succeed. As an instructor for over twenty five years, I see kids who lack confidence get lower grades in school, get picked on far more by bullies, have fewer friends and succumb more easily to peer pressure. And for a teenager these pressures can be almost constant, given the continuous interaction of social media in everyone’s lives.
You may be thinking, “What has this got to do with karate?” My name is Scott Bullard and I am a sensei (chief instructor). I teach a highly successful program designed to help teens to lead healthy lives physically and emotionally and reduce negative stress. It is called the Teen Karate & Kickboxing Program taught at Canada’s Best™ Karate.
Before I explain the details about the Teen Karate & Kickboxing Program, lets first identify where your teen may need help in order to succeed in life.
