It may seem like your teenager just wants to spend all day sitting on the couch or upstairs in their room spending all day on social media or playing video games.
Whilst the explosion IT may be a good thing in many ways, teens still need to be physical and mentally healthy.
Synergy provides classes that include challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game whilst nourishing their positive mental attitude
LEARNING THE VALUE OF RESPECT, FOR THEMSELVES & OTHERS
Some teens seem to be all about attitude; no respect for others including their peers, elders or those in positions of authority.
At Synergy, respect and courtesy are core components of what we do – they are in our oath and tenets. Every student must respect their instructor and seniors. This is drilled at every class so that it becomes part of who we are.
This includes self-respect which builds upon the notion of an improved self-esteem – helping students become happier, healthier and more humble.
JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS
Whether in our classes or in competition, the difference between a great performance and a poor one often comes down to one or two errors in judgment.
Students learn how to calculate the ‘risk versus reward’ and to make their best judgments rapidly. They also learn from poor decisions and how to face new challenges in a positive manner.
HOW TO SET AND ACHIEVE GOALS
Teens sometimes seem not to care about goals setting, whether this is short, mid or long-term.
Synergy martial arts lends itself easily to goal setting throughout the established curriculum and belt syllabus. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved and is therefore worthy of celebration.
Goal-setting provides students with the tools they need to set achievable goals in all walks of life including at school, home and in their future careers.
