I signed my kindergartener daughter in the six-week promotion to see if she would enjoy martial arts. I knew after her first class that this was going to be truly enriching for her, and she loves going to her classes.
I love that the classes are age specific- and you can see how the teaching styles are geared towards each age group. As explained by Sensei Adrian in our assessment- four-year-olds and seven-year-olds are capable of different things at different times. Having them in age-appropriate classes will help them succeed because they are with their peers.
The instructors are firm but fair, and are amazing with a large group of kids. They don't coddle anyone, they have the same expectations of everyone.
I'm proud of how my daughter has taken to BAMA in such a short time. She has gotten stronger and already shows more self discipline (as much as can be expected from a five-year-old)!
My husband and I are so happy that we found Bay Area Martial Arts!

My son just started and I already can see the difference in him. Thank you. This place is GREAT! You all should see if your child or children like it.

My 13 year old son started at the dojo when he was 5 and my 9 year old daughter started when she was 3. Bringing them here has turned out to be one of the best decisions that my husband and I made for our children. The amount of focus and discipline that they have learned through martial arts has encompassed all parts of their lives. Both are excellent students and know how to stick up for themselves. My daughter will not think twice about being an ally for someone else. I am blown away by their self confidence. They have learned that you can succeed at anything you put your mind to with hard work and perseverance.

While learning the skills of working hard and self esteem, students get a great work out and have fun with Sifu Adrian and Sensei Ceci. They create a nurturing environment where children learn skills at their appropriate developmental stage. They have become family and I am forever grateful for all that they have done for my children.

My 7 year old son started at Bay Area Martial Arts in January of this year. After nearly 6 months I have seen such a change in him both physically and emotionally. My son was always scared of trying new things - like riding a scooter or doing a handstand - because his balance has never been that great. Martial arts has really helped him build confidence and the physical strength to try new things. Respect for yourself, your family, and people in the wider world is something that he is learning and doing. Sensei Adrian, Nate, and Ceci have been so wonderful not just to our son, but to our whole family. They really care about these kids - not just to make them ninjas (because lets face it... what kid doesn't want to be a ninja?!?!), but about helping them be the best version of themselves that they can be. Thanks so much you guys!!!!

Super-Charge Your Child’s Development During the Summer

As the world continues its reopening efforts, more and more parents are headed back to work. And while this is a positive sign, it leaves parents with the task of finding their children a fun, yet safe, program to spend each day at. Since summer camps are unable to provide some of the usual daily activities due to the current restrictions, finding a program that has a creative approach to its curriculum is important. In addition, a program that can help propel children in a forward direction again when it comes to their overall development is essential.

Normally children are now just beginning to feel the effects of the summer slide. However, the pandemic forced the slide to hit earlier, leaving parents to fill in the gaps of their child’s development in all areas. People and programs that they usually relied on for help were taken away, which left parents to do it all on their own. Even with the most well-intended efforts on the parent’s part to keep children on track and in a forward developing motion, the lack of access to usual resources still had a negative impact.

Because most children have had some sort of regression in behaviors and stagnated developmentally, it is important that parents find camps that will boost development again while also maintaining safety protocols. Camps that provide a balanced approach of activities that promote a child’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social (4D) development will be the most effective in getting them back to an ideal path. Structured programs run by positive role models create opportunities for fast-paced development as well as life skills enhancement. This method will instill qualities in children that will benefit them into the school year and beyond.

The SKILLZ program camps incorporate all these things. This 4D approach to learning stimulates the children’s minds and disguises learning as fun. Since neurobics is used, neurons fire, and children’s brains become primed for learning. This allows for all activities to be the most effective throughout a camp day. And since SKILLZ also uses techniques that boost positive chemicals in the brain, children’s development is super-charged. This type of program is precisely what child development leaders have spent years saying children need.

As we continue to move forward with changes to our normal lives, we must remain vigilant with children’s development and provide them with the opportunities to learn and grow. Exposing them to life outside of their home again, but on a smaller scale, will prepare them to return to school in the fall. By doing these things, we are helping them “catch up” and get back on the proper developmental track, while feeling safe and secure. That way, by the time school starts up again, they will be fully prepared and be at the top of their game.
