Building more than just muscles: The emotional and mental benefits of martial arts

Martial arts for children is about a holistic blend of physical and emotional well-being. Give your child the gift of karate and watch them:

  • Build confidence and self-esteem
  • Improve discipline and focus
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Setting and achieving goals
  • Develop stress management skills

With Action Karate’s martial arts classes, your child will enjoy personal growth that few activities offer at such a holistic level. They’ll also build resilience and perseverance, enabling them to persevere through challenges. And perhaps more importantly, they will set and work toward achieving personal goals that they can be proud of.

But martial arts is also about our relationship with our communities and the rest of the world around us. That’s why with us, your child will also work on:

  • Developing respect and empathy
  • Enhancing communication skills
  • Building teamwork and collaboration
  • Cultivating a sense of community
  • Instilling leadership skills

It’s all about healthy and nurturing relationships with others enabling them to have positive social interactions as they navigate the world with confidence and positivity.

I am delighted to share my positive experience with Dinoto Karate Center. where my 6 year old grandson has been actively participating since Nov. 2023. In just a few short months, he has already progressed to his yellow belt, showcasing the incredible impact the center has had on his personal growth and development. One of the standout features of DKC is its commitment to instilling essential life skills in its students. The instructors go beyond teaching martial arts techniques incorporating valuable lessons about kindness, responsibility, accountability, and perseverance into each session. These ongoing teachings have not only enhanced my grandsons martial arts abilities but have also positively influenced his focus and discipline, while creating a space where learning goes beyond physical techniques to encompass valuable life principles.I wholeheartedly recommend DKC to anyone seeking a transformative and enriching martial arts experience.

We've had a wonderful experience so far. We especially love how the focus is not only on learning the physical aspects of karate, but also on learning how to be a thoughtful, purposeful and respectful human.

My daughters were skeptical when I mentioned about enrolling them for Martial arts. I told them to try this for the summer and they have not noticed that the summer vacation has gone by and are continuing to do this even after the school year started. They both enjoy the classes very much and have certainly learned a lot in the past few months and am certain they will do this for a while. In addition to being a great master , Master Magill does great work talking about discipline with the kids and we are beginning to see the difference with my daughters staying off the screens when it is not in their schedule and with getting ready to school on time. Master Liciaga is great with keeping the classes organized and is always in touch with parents to provide updates or discuss any upcoming events. We will miss this place when we have to move later in the year. Thank you for running a great martial arts place in the area.

I can not express how amazing this Karate school is my child was having issues with confidence and had anxiety about school and doing new things. After the first week of classes my child seemed so much happier after a few months my child’s grades have improved at school. My child looks forward to coming to class every single week!!! Amazing School!!!!! Amazing Instructors!!!!!
The best decision I have made for my twins. This place is great. The leadership cares about every student that walks into the dojo. They put a emphasis on home life & school life which I love. My kids teach me at home .. “action kata!” We love it

My son Matthew has been attending for more than 2 years and has shown vast improvements over his time at Dinoto Karate. Not only do they teach the children techniques in martial arts, but they enforce valuable lessons in life. Weekly discussions include topics involving perseverance, courage, and the importance of helping others. These life lessons will help him to become a valuable member of society. Physical fitness is just the beginning of what Dinoto Karate has to offer. The instructors at the school are vested in the success of their students and Matthew has so much respect for each of them.

We are so glad to be part of Dinoto Family, its such a well prestigious institution where kids not just learned Karate but how to maintain focus, self discipline, self respect and how to respect others. Staff and leaders are exceptional they teach fundamentals with such fun and kindness-my both kids loved going there every week. I have already recommended DKC to my friends/colleagues and would continue to spread the word out about how great they are …… : )

My son recently was enrolled here and we love it so far! The instructors are so patient and kind, and they take the time to really get on the kids level. Not only do they teach karate but also include a lot of life lessons that are encouraging and easy to understand for even the little kids that attend. We are looking forward to watching our son grow confidence, independence, and skills here and feel confident in this program! I definitely recommend Dinoto’s Karate center.

My son started at Dinoto karate when he was 6 years old and we enrolled him because he was extensively shy and we wanted him to gain some confidence and learn some self discipline. Needless to say it's been an amazing experience 6 years later and he's about to become a 2nd degree black belt this October. The instructors are all well trained master level and they know you kids in and out by name. Our son loved this so much when we moved we wouldn't switch dojo's and we continue to stay at Dinoto. You truly feel like a family there and we love having the same instructors and not random kids teaching classes which is what some dojo's do. We can't say enough good things about Dinoto karate from master Dinoto to master liciaga (both liciagas) and of course master magill. These place is truly special and everyone would benefit greatly from enrolling there kids at this studio.
