The emphasis of our children’s program is establishing discipline and courtesy while teaching practical defense techniques. Training at the Bernales Institute builds confidence and character by teaching children self-control and the ability to stand up to negative peer pressure. The Movements of the Martial Arts develop coordination and increase strength, flexibility, and balance.

The awarding of belts gives children a sense of achievement and accomplishment. Training for tests and passing them enhances a child’s ability to concentrate, plan for, and triumph over learning hurdles. We teach life lessons such as the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated. BIMA students use the Golden Rule in the school and out. Students are expected to learn this and other lessons such as:

3 R’s:

  • Respect yourself
  • Respect others
  • Responsibility for your actions

IMG 2373 smallThe primary value of martial arts is in teaching children how to defend themselves. Unlike many schools that teach techniques designed for tournaments, where the objective is to “score a point," the Bernales Institute will teach your child useful skills designed to help them in an actual self-defense situation. (While self-defense is first and foremost, tournaments can be important for development in the arts and we provide opportunities for competition with an annual tournament.)

 

Students learn how to properly throw punches, kicks, knees, and elbows.  In the higher-level classes, they learn how to deliver weapon-based attacks.  This training teaches them the body mechanics to effectively defend against these moves if delivered by an attacker.  Students develop an innate understanding of how to effectively counter attacks in order to protect themselves and safely disable or disarm an opponent.  The result of training at BIMA is a self-confident child who does not need to bully or show off to other children. Millions of children miss school due to fear of bullies. We enable children to counter bullies by teaching them practical skills and principles such as:

IMG 8756 cr small3 P’s:

  • Prevent - Prevent a fight - Talk it out or walk away (backwards)
  • Prepare - Get into fighting stance and prepare for what may come in terms of an attack--a punch, kick, tackle, etc.
  • Protect - Do what you need to do to avoid getting hurt

Finally, martial arts classes at BIMA are good, clean fun for children and a productive way to burn off extra energy.

Give your child a head start at BIMA through:

  • Bully-Proofing
  • Life Lessons/Skills
  • Confidence Building
  • Character Development

No child is “too young” to instill healthy habits, both physically and mentally.
