Our Kids Are All Winners
Andover Premier Karate is designed as a personal development system as well as a self-defense system.
Our classes are filled with excitement yet focused on developing the inner qualities of a champion. Learning builds a sense of accomplishment. With each new accomplishment a student's self-confidence grows, and confidence is the first step in the empowerment of a person's physical and mental abilities.
Once we begin to develop a students self-confidence, we are then able to instill the values of respect, courtesy, honesty, perseverance, and integrity that are the foundation of martial arts dating back thousands of years.
Furthermore, your child will develop perseverance, which is a non-quitting spirit to overcome life's obstacles. Instilling a non-quitting spirit helps a child over come challenges, to succeed in the face of adversity, and to be a goal setter, and a goal getter.
These combined physical and character foundations that Andover Premier Karate develops helps children excel in their academic life, sports, and social environment. It ensures that they will have the confidence in themselves and the character to make the right decisions when confronted with negative peer pressure. They will be leaders not followers.
No One Sits on the Bench at Andover Premier Karate
At Andover Premier Karate our instructors are there to guide, instruct, and motivate each child to be the best that they can be. It can be heartbreaking for a child to sit on the bench because he or she is not "good enough" to make the team. How sad it is that this world has placed this type of negative pressure on our youth at such an early age.
We believe that in order to build a champion kid, a coach needs to understand that each child has his or her own unique abilities. Our program allows your child to find the inner-strength and confidence to know they can achieve anything they put their minds to.
