Here at American Top Team Fort Lauderdale, Master Junior Fernandes and family are always worried about education not just of their children but also of their students. That is why we want to emphasize some points we believe are very important for the kids’ future.
At American Top Team Fort Lauderdale, we believe that it is not just a matter of enrolling your child(ren) in a martial arts class or in a good private school and think that these actions are enough for their future. Kids need to deal with frustration, they need to listen to a negative response and they need limits. With our busy lives, parents sometimes don’t have much time to spend with their child(ren) and when they are together, they don’t want to frustrate them saying “no” or giving them limits. But these attitudes will not help them to grow and develop in a good way for their future. It is important that parents try to be involved actively in their lives and learning with consistent attitudes and actions. Otherwise, our efforts will not be enough to build their personalities and characters.
American Top Team wants you to reflect: what kind of children do you want to deliver for the world? Kids need to learn how to be supportive, how to share, how to follow directions, how to be honest. They need to be self-sufficient, able to do their own things and to make their own decisions in a responsible and correct way. So parents have a significant participation and contribution for these achievements, although martial arts classes have a huge importance for the learning skills and principles. We have to work closely together to make it.
Here at American Top Team, we are always trying to do our part of the job, teaching the kids how to deal with their frustrations inside or outside the mat, combining martial arts training and playing games. Most of the time life is not exactly the way that we believe and want, so we have to deal with negative attitudes and frustrations that will demand us positive and intelligent actions. Martial arts will contribute for them to learn how to deal with many situations in life, but they need their parents participation and commitment.
Amercian Top Team Fort Lauderdale cares about the future of our kids and families. Let’s keep on track and work together to build better people and consequently a better world.
