Patriot Karate believes American Karate is designed as a personal development system as well as a self-defense system. Our classes are filled with excitement yet focused on developing the inner qualities of a champion. Learning builds a sense of accomplishment. With each new accomplishment a student's self-confidence grows, and confidence is the first step in the empowerment of a person's physical and mental abilities.
Once we begin to develop a students self-confidence, we are then able to instill the values of respect, courtesy, honesty, perseverance, and integrity that are the foundation of Martial Arts dating back thousands of years. Furthermore, your child will develop perseverance, which is a non-quitting spirit to overcome life's obstacles. Instilling a non-quitting spirit helps a child over come challenges, to succeed in the face of adversity, and to be a goal setter, and a goal getter.
These combined physical and character foundations that the American Mixed Martial Arts Institute developed, helps children excel in their academic life, sports, and social environment. It ensures that they will have the confidence in themselves and the character to make the right decisions when confronted with negative peer pressure. They will be leaders not followers.
