Xcel Martial Arts

The Family that Kicks together, sticks together!

Cougars - Ages 8 to 15 yrs

  • The Cougars students enjoy a wide variety of skill building drills while learning self defense.
  • These students will build coordination and focus.
  • Children involved in the martial arts on average have better grades in school and are much less likely to have disciplinary problems.
  • At this age children may have to endure bullies. Martial arts training gives them self-confidence and are far less likely to be bullied.  

Students learn:

When confronted, a child’s first option should be to get away; fighting should be the very last resort. It is a myth that the Martial Arts fosters aggressiveness in children. On the contrary, with continuous training, there are natural increases in a child’s confidence, discipline and self-control


The Martial Arts instills discipline in students by requiring full attention in class, refraining from unruly behavior, the importance of arriving on time and being prepared. Students are also taught to follow instructions and not interrupt instructors. Kids are expected to keep uniforms and other items clean and organized.


Many parents enroll their children in the Martial Arts to boost their confidence, self-esteem and feeling of self-worth. Kids put forth their best effort, defend themselves, recognize their own potential and believe in their abilities. Because of their own efforts, there is a feeling of pride with each rank advancement.


Nothing does a better job at teaching the “old school” values of respect and courtesy. Martial Arts training teaches children to answer in a respectful manner to instructors (“Yes Sir” or “No Sir”), bow when entering and leaving the school, stand straight before class begins and raising hands to answer or ask a question.

Goal Setting

At a very early age, Martial Art students are encouraged to set long term goals. The most obvious goal is reaching the rank of Black Belt. The Martial Art instills indomitable spirit so children never give up on their dreams. Learning to set goals encompasses the life experiences of a Martial Arts student.

Don't delay, help your child to achieve the best the can be. Martial arts training at a true martial arts school helps children grow to become independent, trust worthy, dependable adults.
