As you know, we strive to be more than just a <<Punch & Kick >> school. We are always looking for ways to enhance your children’s learning experience here at Championship Martial Arts.
You deserve a full curriculum that helps to develop your children socially and cognitively as well as physically. That is why we are proud to announce that we’ve partnered with internationally acclaimed Child and Adolescent Development Specialist, Robyn J. A. Silverman, PhD. Dr. Robyn is going to provide a multitude of resources to the families of our school for the betterment of our children.
Dr. Robyn, as many call her, has developed a comprehensive character development curriculum called Powerful Words. Powerful Words provides easy-to-follow lessons for children ages 4- 7, 7 ½ -13 years as well as lessons for teens—lessons that give each student the strength to explore and the foundation to succeed.
Here at Championship Martial Arts, such a character education program used within the context of our organized martial arts lessons, can invite students to listen, share, discover and reflect on the ways to become upstanding members of our community as well as confident individuals in their own right.
You’ll notice some very exciting enhancements taking place at our academy. Our Bulletin Boards will offer our parents a one stop information center to keep you updated as to what the children will be learning, in addition, you’ll be receiving monthly editions of the Parents’ Perch, Dear Dr. Robyn, and Powerful Projects. The Parents Perch is a letter that describes the Powerful Word of the Month and how we will be teaching it at our academy. This can serve as a great discussion starter for you and your kids!
The Dear Dr. Robyn Column is kind of like “Dear Abby” for parents of <<martial artists>>…I know you’ll find it helpful! Each month our students will have the opportunity to be positively recognized for completing a Powerful Project. These projects are age appropriate, very educational, and fun to do!
You’ll also notice that at the end of every class our students will get to take part in a Power Chat that will help them to solidify their understanding of the Powerful Word of the Month. Dr. Robyn has written this curriculum specifically for use in our academy, so now our students will actually be getting two world-class programs for the price of one!
Championship Martial Arts is already regarded as the finest Martial Arts academy in our Appleton, WI – now, with the help of Dr. Robyn’s expertise, we will become the leading Personal Development Center as well!
We are thrilled to provide you with Dr. Robyn’s Powerful Words resources! Let’s work together to help all of our children achieve their most POWERFUL PERSONAL BEST!
