Like it or not, life will test your child. And, as a good parent you want to prepare him in whatever way you can. But what is the best preparation? You can teach him what to do and how to do it. You can make sure he gets an education, learns skills, and develops good habits but still you feel that something is missing. There’s still too much left to chance. And this worries you. So, what’s missing? We’ve learned from our experience of working with more than 10,000 students over the last 45 years that what’s missing is a set of principles and the inner strength needed to follow those principles come hell or high water. With a set of principles deeply embedded in your child’s psyche and with the inner strength gained from applying those principles repeatedly in life or death situations your child will be well prepared to handle all that life can throw at him. So, Why Shotokan Karate Leadership School®? Comprehensive Set of Principles Because our programs provide your child with a comprehensive set of principles to guide his life and the inner strength needed to apply those principles in the most difficult situations life has to offer. In the next article I’ll talk in depth about those principles and what happens in our martial art karate for kids leadership program that gives your child an extraordinary advantage in life. If you’re unfamiliar with our program this will give you a behind the scenes look at what we do and how we do it. To the potential new student this is valuable insight to our training process and why we’ve had such great success in the 35 years we’ve been in Santa Rosa. Sincerely, Marty Callahan
