The Secret to Disciplined Kids
Hey this is Denny at Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts and in this video I’m going to show you how you can actually get your kid hooked on self discipline and personal development.
There’s a chemical called ‘dopamine’ that fires in our brains when we accomplish goals. When your child achieves a goal, learns to hit the target, break a board, learns a form, receives a new belt they receive a pleasurable hit of dopamine in their brain that tells them they’ve done a good job.
It’s kinda like nature’s pat-on-the back, pushing them towards being better and happier. This spurs them on and makes them want to learn more and be better, because they associate the pleasurable rush with the accomplishment.
At Skillz Dynamic Martial Arts, our instructors craft everything we do around this. Constantly creating opportunities for our students to hit incremental, small goals that makes them get better and better, which helps them become happier and happier.
It’s amazing the impact it has on their lives in and outside of the karate school. They become more confident, happier, more outgoing and sociable with other children.
A perfect example is Alex, he came to us with very low confidence after he had been bullied at school. Naturally his inclination was to shy away from taking part but by giving them incremental goals, starting small and making sure he got his little hits of dopamine within 4 weeks they were turning up to class with a grin, ear to ear ready to show us what he was made of!
If you think your child could benefit from a little more self confidence and a boost of dopamine happiness we’d love to show you what we do. I’d like to personally invite you to come into our school and experience Skillz for yourself.
There’ll be no obligation to enroll in a program or anything like that. Just come watch a class. Chat with some other parents. Meet the instructors and ask them whatever you like. It would be a pleasure to have you as our guest.
