See What Our Chandler Martial Arts Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.
Lessons Our Chandler Martial Arts Students Learn
Martial Arts Lessons Improve Listening Skills & Overall Focus
Every facet of day to day life involves a sight, a smell, a sound and evokes a feeling, whether it can be touched or not. Realistically, there is no diagnosis for a child’s or adult’s inability to pay close attention, there is no condition for a weakness in listening and comprehension. Rather there is a lack of engagement in activities that connect mind to body, requiring full attention, where the mind retains the information so that it can repeat the motion. This is why martial arts has helped so many people improve their listening skills, because it requires and relies upon the art of communication to present each student with technique and form.
Why Parents are Seeking Martail Arts Classes for Children
It is common that parents seek martial arts classes for their child for reasons of building honor, respect, and courage; however, many find that the more their child engages in martial arts, the better his or her listening skills progress. Every form of martial arts, be it taekwondo, karate, or kickboxing requires the participant to watch their teacher closely, not only are they listening, they are hearing. They must be capable of hearing what is instructed, such as kicking motions, footwork, and various other movements. In turn, motor function skills begin to improve and students will become more efficient at learning by ear and learning by sight.
Martial Arts Can Help People with ADHD
Exercise turns on “the attention system” requiring that children focus and pay attention. Taekwondo is one of many exercises that is good for children with ADHD, due to it involving paying close attention to the different body movements. All martial arts have this rule with the key benefits being increased discipline, focus, and determination. Children learn to pay attention to the task at hand and not to give up when engaged in high levels of physical activity. Behavior changes do occur and will be noticeable over time with consistent hard work during martial arts training.
Learning Martial Arts is Known to Help Shy People with Peer Interactions
Children today, face bullying and negative peer pressure more than ever before, which is why it is essential they have the necessary skills to guard and protect themselves. Kids who know how to protect themselves usually will not have to because they carry themselves in a more secure manner and sometimes confidence alone is all the deterrent that bullies need.
