Hi, my name is Corey Paternoster, owner of Dynamic Martial Arts in Greenwich, CT. I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts for your child.
I’ve taught kids martial arts classes for years and as you can imagine, I’ve seen every kind of personality you can think of in a child. Rambunctious, shy, defiant, complacent…every child is different, with special gifts to give and challenges to overcome, and I’ve seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them find their inner strength, peace, and focus.
We’ve seen ultra-shy kids burst out of their shell, ADD and ADHD kids learn how to control themselves, socially awkward kids learn how to make and keep friends, and even helped special needs children find a place to fit in and feel accepted. So, what I’ll do on this page is tell you a little about what our focus is in our classes, and what methods we use to achieve our results. Take a look at what we do, and see if our philosophy on the Martial Arts mat lines up with your goals as a parent, and if what we teach would be beneficial in your child’s life. Again, THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts – it was literally the BEST thing that ever happened to me when I was young, and I think it’s possible that it could be the same for your child.
“It is our goal to inspire strength, discipline, confidence and focus in our students, to help them discover their inner leader. I believe every child has the potential to be a leader, they just need someone to believe in them. As a parent myself, I understand the challenges of raising a confident and focused child in an age where there are more distractions than ever.”
From the beginning of their martial arts training, our students are taught that restraint and the avoidance of conflict are the highest virtues. By joining Dynamic Martial Arts, you become a part of a tradition that dates back centuries. The student who joins our program at Dynamic Martial Arts will soon learn that there is something about the art that he or she wants in his or her life.
Whether you are fitness-oriented or looking for a sense of confidence and security, you will find it here. Our students range in age from 4 1/2 to seventy-five. Men, women, and children benefit from karate training.
Creating more self-esteem in people is our first priority. Deriving confidence from within by developing inner talents helps people feel better about themselves. At American Karate Studio, we are here to make you a stronger, more confident person. With hard work and a positive attitude, you gain confidence and have fun at the same time!
