The Black Belt Success System
History of Martial Arts
The study of Martial Arts began thousands of years ago in China. The Martial Arts were designed on the concepts of self-defense and character development. The principles stressed in the Martial Arts philosophy are respect, confidence, discipline, mental alertness, and a positive attitude towards life.
High Levels of Enthusiasm and Positive Reinforcement
Our qualified instructors are energetic and outgoing. The Black Belt insturctors have advanced training and continue to upgrade their skills. They have a sincere interest in your self-improvement, and in helping you reach your goals. Classes are intense workouts and offer exciting programs for adults, children and families. Our convenient and flexible scheduling has been designed with our students in mind.
Modern Approach to Self-Defense
Our Black Belt Martial Arts School is dedicated to helping others develop confidence through self-defense skills. Our modern teaching techniques focus on the nature and structure of conflicts and how we can resolve them peacefully. Safety is always our greatest concern. We have a genuine interest in our student's progress and development. Here at Edison Martial Arts, our staff is always willing to go the extra mile for you.
Rewarding Adult Classes
We offer adult programs for all levels of skill. We encourage the participation of women, men, children, parents and grandparents because everyone can benefit from the study of Martial Arts. We treat all of our students with respect. We emphasize the positive attributes of our students, helping them to gain self-esteem and acheive higher goals.
Our Black Belt Martial Arts School emphasizes discipline and the value of persisting until goals are reached. We believe in following a high standard of values to bring out the good in our students and increase the quality of life. Regular attendance of our special Adult Programs will result in stress reduction and improved health.
Our adult Jiu Jitsu (Self-Defense) Program is designed to teach students the ways of avoiding an attack that goes beyond physical techniques. Students must develop mental toughness, combat body language and street smarts, so that when called upon to defend themselves, their training will have prepared them. That is our goal here at the Edison Martial Arts Academy.
Award-Winning Children's Programs
We are very concerned with the well-being and education of our children. We understand that younger students have a shorter attention span. Our unique children's programs use interesting and enjoyable methods to keep the student's attention and teach our young students skills that they can use for life.
We promote non-violent resolutions to conflict. Our methods help children to explore and understand conflict through role-play and other exercises.
Students will learn confidence, self-discipline, and control as they learn how to act and react to the world around them.
Our young students are treated with respect and are taught to return the same respect to others.
We believe in praise, encouragement, and positive reinforcement. We have incentives for good academic report cards. Students must maintain good academic grades to be promoted to a higher rank.
We teach students the value of setting goals and working to meet them.
Expect Extraordinary Benefits
Positive Self-Image and Pride
A positive self-image leads to victory. If you want to be a champion Black Belt, you must hold a positive image of yourself. One is not naturally born with a positive self-image; it must be learned and practiced. Studying the Martial Arts is an excellent way to enhance your pride. The motivating force of pride will drive you to accomplish your objectives.
Courage to Overcome Fear
Courage is the maker of a champion Black Belt, and it is a characteristic that only winners possess. Courage is a measure of your heart, your desire, your inner strength. Courage will keep you from being intimidated by the prospect of failure. Fear is a natural part of life, but it can drive you to perform better if you have courage to face it.
Self Discipline and Respect
The Martial Arts Philosophy teaches the importance of respect for one's self and others. All Black Belt students must follow the Student Creed. Students will learn to set goals and be self-motivating in achieving them. A positive mental attitude will evolve. Our younger students have self-confidence to resist peer pressures and the disastrous effects of drugs and gangs.
Reaching Goals and Objectives
To help students achieve their goals, they will be tested regularly and their progress will be assessed by an instructor.
Acheiving a Black Belt is a multi-year goal for most people. Along the way there are short-term objectives to advance in skill level.
Learning to set and achieve goals will help students become more successful in other areas of their lives as well .
Through the years, the Martial Arts Industry has grown rapidly. It has grown out of the image of a gym to that of a school, with a curriculum which outlines goals and objectives. A strong classroom structure is the key to the Black Belt Success System - it helps the student stay focused on his or her goals.
A class schedule will help you manage your time more efficiently and allow you to take advantage of more opportunities.
A few productive classes a week is all it takes for you to improve your outlook, grow healthier, and live a happier life.
We offer group lessons, and you may inquire about the availability of private lessons.
Our class schedules were carefully thought out, with the student's convenience in mind.
The Black Belt Club
The Black Belt Club is composed of active Black Belts and those who have set their goals to become Black Belts. It is a special accelerated membership for students to achieve their long-term goals.
