This business offers great extra curricular activities for both kids and adults! The instructors are very helpful in teaching on all levels and various classes. I love the Cage Fitness class which offers a 30 minute full body workout. The availability of various class times helps you and/or your child stay on tract. We are loving the new location!

Great and friendly staff. Great programs for the whole family. My son is in the summer camp during the day and he is involved in various activities and he absolutely loves TMA. The cage fitness class is a awesome 30 minute workout that can fit into just about anybody's schedule. Instructors are very knowledgeable and take the time to show you each step correctly. Come check them out. You will be glad you did.

Trinity martial arts has taught my kids not only to be more secure with themselves but has also given them the confidence to go through life with their heads held high. They have not only been learning martial arts. They are being taught life skills that will help them throughout their transition of being kids into adulthood.

My daughter has truly enjoyed Trinity Martial Arts. Skills taught have already proven to improve focus and self confidence. There are plenty of skilled staff that you and/or your child can relate to as well as learn from. The instructors and classes are diverse and emphasize your ability to make it to the top. All instructors have seemed to be especially good at certain aspects of their art. Jason and the Team ensure that those instructors are the ones teaching that skill. This form is a system of encouragement and is well planned. Try it. We were offered 2 classes at no charge to discover this new format of fitness and discipline and it took just one. The other students are obviously team oriented and seem to glow with positivity. My child has identified her mentors in just a few visits.

This is the best place for anyone to have fun & learn how to kick butt. I received my black belt from TMA & once I entered High School I became too busy to continue taekwondo classes. Would highly recommend to anyone interested! Mr. Smith, Mr. Bridges & Mr. Kirkland were outstanding instructors!

Patience

Patience 

Take a few extra seconds when responding to poor behavior.  This demonstrates compassion, empathy, and self-control on your part.  Sometimes all you need to do is think about responding in the most patient manner to help re-direct your child.  A few seconds can make a big difference. 

  1. Ask, Listen, Explain

Patience helps you to establish better solutions for difficult moments with your child.  

If your child has a temper tantrum, for instance, take a few seconds to calm down before reacting. Then, ask questions to help determine what is really driving the behavior. Listen to what they say and then explain what they could have done instead.      

Patience can lead to understanding and solutions.  Be patient and ask the right questions to get your child back on track.   

  1. Give a Do-over 

A do-over is exactly as it sounds – the chance to do something again. Using patience means giving your child the chance to act in a better way than they did the first time around. 

The perfect time to implement a do-over is when your child says something out of anger, such as “You are not my favorite mommy!” A do-over begins by telling your child that this is not the proper way for them to speak to you.  You may begin with, “Let’s do this over.  What is a nicer way to talk to me when you are upset?” This gives them the chance to explain why they are upset in a different way. It may be as simple as they didn’t want to stop playing to eat dinner.  Allow them the chance to re-phrase and then go from there, such as letting them know that they can play more, just after dinner.   

When you allow your child a do-over, you use patience with your child and apply patience to the way that you react to their behavior.     

  1. Provide Teaching Moments

Many people assume that discipline means “to punish,” when it really means, “to teach.”  

When your child makes a mistake, you can either punish, or you can discipline through patient teaching moments.  In a soccer game, if a player misses the ball, the coach doesn’t yell and get angry with them.  Instead, they explain what went wrong and help the player by letting them know how they can improve the next time. 

A parental teaching moment is the same.  When your child makes a mistake, use patience to explain what they did wrong and provide them information that will help them improve or not make the same mistake again.  A teaching moment provides options and solutions, while punishment does not.  

The question to ask yourself today is how patient are you with your child.  How many times do you give them do-overs? Try to give them as many do-overs as possible so they can learn how to behave and communicate better.  In the long run, both of you learn valuable teaching moments through patience.
