check out that this mother had to say


I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to tell you something that I think is equally amazing and wonderful. As you know our daughter Lauren has been taking classes at your studio for about 6 months and she loves it! Lauren has always been a shy child. Her teachers have always said that is well behaved in class, does her work and completes it on time, but often when it come to testing, her scores were never as good as the teachers expected. Many teachers have said that they think that Lauren gets so nervous that she just does not test well and that this problem comes from her own self confidence. I began to do research and found that when a child’s self confidence is low, it can affect many areas of their life, in her case even her test scores at school.

After talking to her teacher at school, I discover that many teachers and educational professional recommend martial arts training for developing a child’s confidence and self esteem, and that is why I brought her to your studio. I am excited to tell you that in only 6 months Lauren is now testing as a normal 5th grader would and she is getting great scores. AND…even better her confidence has grown so much that she just won the 5th grade spelling bee! Before her martial arts training at your studio, Lauren would have never got up in front of people to compete, let alone win a spelling contest!

Thanks for all you do, you have made a huge difference in Lauren and made me one happy parent!

We hear stories like this all the time. In fact you can expect many benefits from your child's training in martial arts at MICHAEL REID'S PREMIER MARTIAL ARTS.

  • Increased Attention Span and Focus

Children will begin by keeping their eyes focus on the eyes of people speaking to them. They will begin paying more attention to their teachers and for longer periods of time, therefore hearing and learning more. Focus is like a muscle, the more you use it, the better and stronger it gets. With martial arts training at Michael Reid's Premier Martial Arts, we train children's muscles and mind.

  • Confidence Growth

A confident child is a happy child. They no longer live in anxiety or fear. Confidence is the first step to get a child to succeed in all areas of life. Once confidence is developed, the instructors at our studio can now begin getting a child to perform at a level that was once un-thought of for them.

  • Self Discipline

Getting a child to do what they are told can be challenging enough, and our program will develop respectful disciplined kids, but more important is getting a child to do what they are not told. Develop self discipline is children where they have the knowledge to know what they should do, and they do it! This trait will be invaluable as they grow into successful teens and adults.

  • Increased Fitness and Weight Loss

Strength, Conditioning, Flexibility and Weight Loss are all benefits that parents can expect to receive with martial arts training at Michael Reid's Premier Martial Arts. Every muscle group is strengthened and defined with the exercises, movements, technique, and training drills that are incorporated into our curriculum. A child’s endurance and stamina will peak as we increase their cardiovascular conditioning. All these physical benefits for their body will be felt in their daily life and activities, increasing their energy and confidence.



Martial Arts is not a team sport, the only person that a child is competing with is “Themselves”. Kids come to us from ages 5 and up, some are in shape, while others are overweight. Some come for confidence, fitness and others for fun. Each child is treated equally, and is trained to the best of their own ability and potential. A child is never compared to anyone else. At Michael Reid's Premier Martial Arts our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate your kid to be the best that they can be.

We could go on and on about the benefits of martial arts training for children, but maybe it’s better for you to hear it from real parents.



Martial arts increases focus and concentration.

I can’t believe this difference in Brandon. His teacher actually noticed it first. His ability to focus and pay attention to her increased so much that she called me wanting to know what was going on? I told her the only difference that I could think of was he began martial arts training at Michael Reid’s Premier Martial Arts. She said to keep up the training because it was making a huge difference. When I saw his report card, I agreed!
— Angela Pine (Brandon’s Mom)

Martial arts training develops confidence in kids!

We wanted to take a few moments and let the staff know just how amazing, professional, and caring they are. Both of our children are enrolled at the studio and we are so impressed with their training. Our daughter Camden was showing a real lack of confidence. After only a few months of training at Premier she is more outgoing and her confidence is really growing. Last week he got up in front of his class at school to volunteer for a presentation, she would have never done this before. When we first enrolled at Premier, we were considering another martial arts school because they were a little cheaper, what a mistake that would have been! We are thankful for the instructors, they truly are great role-models for our children.
— Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Garcia (Camden’s Parents)

Enrolling your child in karate could be one of the best things for your child.

When my son was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), our doctor recommend martial arts instruction as a method to increase his focus, concentration, and provide a structured environment that would give him a physical and mental outlet. I was speaking to his teacher at school about this situation and she had heard that another parent had enrolled her child in Karate for the same reason. Enrolling my child in Martial Arts was the best thing I could have done. Their instruction has made a huge difference in our child- he has been receiving A’s in conduct and even made the last honor roll. I am a single working mom and I can use all the help I can get! I sincerely thank the instructors and owner of Michael Reid’s Premier Martial Arts.

Karate kids know how to handle bullying situations.

I was so proud of Mila recently, a bully on the bus was picking on another child and she spoke up for the child and told the bully to leave him alone. I was shocked when her teacher told me about this situation. Not only does Mila have the confidence to stand up to a bully, she also has the caring to want to do what is right and help others.
— Frank Reteguiz (Mila’s Dad)


I know my child will have fun, but he has quit other activities before. How can we keep him from quitting?

The key to a child’s success in any activity is consistency, progress and parents. What we have found children don’t quit martial arts training, parents do! As long as a parent makes and keeps the commitment of making sure their child attends class twice per week, children will learn and excel in their training. Kids that training consistently, continue to progress in the martial arts and should no problem reaching the life changing goal of Black Belt.

Is my child too young for martial arts training?

At Michael Reid's Premier Martial Arts we are experts at teaching martial arts. We have programs specially designed for ages 5 to 7, 8 to 12, teens, and adults. Our instructors are trained to bring out the best in our student performance at any age.

What are the chances that my child could get hurt doing martial arts?

Don’t worry it’s not like the cage fighting you see almost every night on TV! (But your child will learn to defend themselves.) Actually children have much greater chances of getting hurt playing football than participating in martial arts. In fact we have trained students for years that have never received a single injury. While injuries can and do occur very rarely, your child safety is our main concern. We use padded safety gear, abide by strict safety rules and regulation for instructors and students, use padded safety weapons, and even have high tech padded floors, all for the safety of our students.

Will martial arts training make my child aggressive to others?

NO WAY! As a matter of fact, we are careful to teach our students to use common sense before self defense. Kids are taught this from the first day of classes, to make smart decisions when it comes to self defense. They will know when it is the right time to use what we teach them.

My child has never been good at sports, can he do this?

Every child has what it take to be good at martial arts because in martial arts they are not competing or comparing themselves with anyone. Martial arts are more than just punching and kicking. Character development training is just as important as punching and kicking. We are building Black Belt from the inside out. Once we develop a child’s confidence, they truly can then achieve anything they set their minds to.

Is martial art training good exercise if my child needs to lose weight?

Martial Arts is great exercise for kids. Martial arts training combined with a sensible diet can transform a child’s physic and overall health. And kids that feel good about themselves are children that develop strong confidence and self esteem, which will carry over in all aspect of their life in the future. Just listen what this parent recently had to say…


Martial Arts is Fun Exercise for Kids! 

My son Seth was chubby at best. He had a weight problem since he was about 4. We tried everything! We signed him up for little league basketball, but he felt so insecure. We took him to a specialist for childhood obesity and I think that just made him more self conscious about his problem. The specialist said that his problem was first and foremost a confidence problem and he recommend we try martial arts training. And we are glad to say that was the answer. Seth loved martial arts from day one! As he moved through the belt ranks his confidence grew and grew. He wanted to go every day! He started to become more flexible, he got stronger, and all of the sudden the weight started to fall off. Seth is now a lean mean 10 year old and his grades have even improved.
