At the Ultimate Summer Camp of FishHawk sponsored by Sidekicks Family Martial Arts Centers of Lithia, FL, your child can have the best summer of his or her life while gaining from huge benefits you’ll love! Best of all, they may not even realize all they’re gaining because they’re just having so much fun! We offer the coolest, most exciting summer camp you’ll find in North or Eastern Hillsborough County and it’s definitely more than just karate; it’ll kick away the summer blahs and help your child become a leader!
There’s nothing like our unique summer camp! This summer, we’ll help your child build confidence, learn self-defense, develop a winning attitude, improve concentration, and increase self-defense. Your child will develop all this while having the best time of his or her life through our unique approach to fun and learning. It’s a great alternative to other programs that are essentially kid corrals and your child is ignored as long as he or she isn’t bleeding.
Every September it seems that each child has to re-program themselves in order to get back into the swing of school. Sometimes, the child that was straight A’s at the end of the last school year starts the new school year off with a struggle. There are several factors that contribute to this struggle:
Not enough mental stimulation. Through our martial arts program’s philosophy of always learning and doing their best, students are constantly stimulated to think about their martial arts, self-protection moves, and character lessons. They work together to solve problems developing powerful teamwork and leadership skills. In other programs they simply go through the motions playing games that don’t really challenge their minds or problem solving skills.
Short attention span. With an over abundance on time on their hands, children tend to float from one thing to another…sometimes never finishing what they start. Through the structured and well planned martial arts environment that SIDEKICKS provides your child will constantly be developing amazing focus and concentration, not just to do blocks, kicks, and punches…but to do their personal best at everything they do!
Lack of motivation. All through the year, children are zeroed in on completing homework and earning their grades. During the summer, many are left at loose ends and lose their motivation for doing what they’re supposed to do. Unfortunately, when September rolls around it takes a while to get back into step with their academics. We call it the blahs. Our martial arts program is fun and exciting, but it keeps them motivated and sharp to do their best. Our unique curriculum constantly gives them opportunities to learn and grow.
Unused goal setting skills. With no grades to earn and no structure for their everyday activity, kids lose ground because they have no goals. The martial arts teaches goal setting by using the belt ranking system as a metaphor for success. Your child will learn to set long range goals (black belt) and create intermediate steps to reach those goals (the colored belts) and how to create a plan to get their through hard work and dedication.
How can this be true? Well, it’s simple. All of our camps run with maximum supervision and kids are eager to belong to a structured society. Children know what is expected of them; it is just a matter of reinforcing the structure and making it fun for kids.
Each child who enters our martial arts summer camp, will be a model student in an academic school setting, during the next school year. How is this possible? The foundation of martial arts is courtesy and respect. This is how a martial arts school maintains structure and integrity. All of the extra life skills such as: goal setting, anger management, stress management, motivation, self defense, and having a positive attitude, are “icing on the cake.” Every child who enters a martial arts summer camp learns the feeling of success, the feeling of achievement – and no child is left behind. In turn, this will prepare him or her for the next school year.
But, your child will have the opportunity to have it all this summer. Along with martial arts, fun field trips to the part, arts & crafts, gymnastics, and a ton of other awesome education activities will make this the most fun your child can have anywhere. Our camp is for boys and girls of all ages and levels of experience, regardless of whether they are current students or not.
Quality, Well-Planned Instruction
We once heard a saying; “nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” For us, that means that we take the responsibility of leading your child to success very seriously. That’s why we spend almost as much time outside the classroom planning as we spend in the classroom teaching.
Sidekicks Family Martial Arts Centers has an exciting curriculum that was developed in conjunction with child psychologists that centers around a weekly theme with each day’s activities centered around that theme to reinforce the positive values of the martial arts and help instill them in your child.
At the beginning of every week, our instructors meet specifically to go over the class planner, identify and assign roles, anticipate any hang-ups or glitches and then train on how to present the information to our students. This way we maximize the usage of our time when we’re in front of your child. It requires the right balance of structured activity, fun, and free-time to avoid burn-out that is often a result from too-much of a good thing.
This is how we can promise such great benefits from training in our Super Martial Arts Summer Camp, we just care so much about your child’s success that we are constantly working to create the best learning environment around.
Just imagine, your child sitting in school and having the courage to raise his or her hand in class to ask a question—unafraid of being teased because it was a “stupid question.” Unfortunately, many kids today have that fear and won’t ask a question, that could have made all the difference in understanding the subject matter, simply because they’re afraid of how their classmates will react. Through our Ultimate Summer Camp, your child will learn how to look within for self-worth rather than the constantly changing opinions of his peers.
Picture yourself, beaming with pride as your child is recognized for her outstanding academic performance. We teach specific success strategies that translate into higher grades, goal setting, and high achievement!
Not only will his or her confidence and grades improve, but so will their behavior. You’ll start to get tired of being complimented on how well-behaved your child is, simply because it’ll start happening…all the time! We know this will happen because we see it happen every day with families just like yours that’ve enrolled in our programs. In fact, since Sidekicks because teaching in the Tampa Bay area, we’ve literally helped over 2,000 children develop confidence, concentration, control, self-confidence, get in shape, and learn self-defense.
So, what do you do next?
First, let’s review the benefits that you want for your child
- Increased Physical Fitness and get in shape – Our daily martial arts classes are very active and will get your child in shape and sometimes he won’t realize he’s exercising because it’s just so much fun!
- Achieve Academic heights you’ve never dreamed – Through the earning of colored belts, with the ultimate goal of black belt, we’ll teach your child how to approach any task with a plan in mind and the will to take action!
- Develop the kind of character other parents will envy – Our specially designed Curriculum, which has a character lesson centered around the monthly theme, provides games, stories, and activities, all designed to reinforce those character traits that all parents wish their kids had.
- Protect him or herself mentally and physically from all kinds of danger – Because of our commitment to be the best at everything we attempt in life (we do try and set the best example we can for our students), we’ve adopted many of the best self-defense practices from martial arts all over the world to help your child (and adults too!) protect herself or himself at any range. We incorporate the blocking, punching, kicking and hand strikes of traditional Taekwon-Do with the ground defense of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu and submission wrestling and then because we want to be ready for any situation we also intersperse a Filipino martial art called Kali, which uses sticks to teach fundamentals of weaponry. Because of the special nature of children we always take great care to emphasize that the martial arts is for self-defense only and how they should deal with bullies or would-be kidnappers.
- Make success and positive thinking a way of life! – Watch as your child trains and begins to excel at every other activity he or she does. This is because our program is all about doing your best! Through the learning of Focus and Discipline, your child will begin to accomplish goals and set new ones. With consistent training these are strategies and habits that will last a lifetime. Not to mention that their positive self-image will make him or her a happier person
We realize that you’re a busy person. You work to provide your family and running to here and there can really cut into your busy day. You’ll be relieved of this stress because our Ultimate Summer Camp program takes place while you’re at work or off doing other errands! Where else can you find a summer activity that offers your child so much while providing a positive and safe learning environment as well?
