Kick Start the Summer: Top Reasons to Enroll Your Child in Karate Classes


As we move further into the summer, finding ways to keep your child active, engaged, and learning can be a challenge. Karate classes at Triangle Dojo offer the perfect solution. Here are several reasons why enrolling your child in karate this summer is a great idea: 


Physical Fitness and Health

Karate classes provide an excellent full-body workout, helping children stay fit and healthy. Physical activity helps improve strength, flexibility, and endurance. Health is for everyone, no matter the skill level. Beginners can benefit from learning new skills or just trying a new activity to stay active.


Discipline and Focus

Karate teaches discipline, focus, and respect. These skills not only help in martial arts but also translate to better performance in school and other areas of life. It can be easy to lose focus and become too relaxed during summer. Enrolling in Karate classes can keep your child active while still leaving time to enjoy summer vacation. 


Confidence and Self-Esteem

As children progress through their karate training, they achieve new belts and master new techniques, boosting their confidence and self-esteem. Overcoming challenges in karate builds a sense of accomplishment. This can be a great way to set your child up for a successful school year.


Self-Defense Skills

Learning karate equips children with valuable self-defense skills. These skills provide a sense of security and can be empowering, giving children the ability to protect themselves. This doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be physical defense, but defense against bullying through building confidence, respect and self-esteem.


Spend The Summer with IMAA

Our instructors at IMAA are highly trained professionals with extensive experience in martial arts and self-defense. They bring real-world knowledge and tactical expertise to the classroom, ensuring that students learn effective techniques that could one day save their lives. The training methodology at IMAA emphasizes hands-on practice and scenario-based drills, which are critical for building the reflexes and quick thinking needed in dangerous situations.

This place is great! Charles and his team have fantastic programs for kids. When we started our 3.5 year old son, I didn’t know what to expect. He quickly adapted to the classes and now loves going. Our 2 year old son loves watching and will start as well as soon as he turns 3. Innovative Martial arts also hosted their birthday parties. The kids had a blast doing different activities throughout the birthday party. Can’t say enough good things about this place, and what they teach!

Innovative Martial Arts Academy (IMAA) is the best place to take martial arts. Charles Falk, the owner, and his staff do a great job teaching martial arts to the students and teaching each student to be confident and disciplined. My son has been with IMAA for eight years - he has earned one black belt and is working on his second.

Not only are the staff amazing, but there is a mix of fun and learning in the curriculum. My 5 year old daughter absolutely loves this school. She has learned respect and many other aspects making her more focused and well behaved. I definitely recommend this school for you or your child.

Great school with wonderful teachers. My daughter has a great time learning and everyone is friendly. There is even an adult class that allowed me to try to see if I liked it and everyone was very patient with me. I am thankful to have my daughter be a part of the Innovative Martial Arts Academy in Wake Forest and know she is benefiting from it in more than one way. It amazes me how fast she is learning and how hard she is trying. They have her trying to develop at her fullest with her mind, body, and spirit. I would recommend this school to anyone interested in martial arts.

Wonderful place for not only skill development but also personal development. Owner and instructors genuinely get to know students and families and care about them. The lessons learned will provide character growth as well as martial art skills. The owner is also a long time student of many different martial arts, he didn't just buy a franchise, and tries very hard to live what he teaches the students. Proud to have been in this dojo family for 6+ years and proud of the friendships we have made there!
