Partners in Development

We understand the difficulties parents face in raising a child and design lessons to target these challenges..

We’ve dealt with it all here and believe that the secret to your child’s development is a mix of rewarding physical activity and a focus on instilling essential life lessons. Through psychology, eastern wisdom practiced for generations, and patience, we help kids reach new heights of development.

Rest assured knowing your child isn’t just benefiting from a fun physical activity, they’re also building skills such as focus, discipline, respect, empathy, confidence, and more through their training.

We Often Encounter Kids Who Have:

  • Amazing personalities but are just too shy and reserved to share it with the world.
  • Incredible gifts but low self esteem that holds them back from their true potential.
  • Big dreams but not enough courage or ambition to chase them.
  • Intelligent minds but difficulty focusing due to short attention spans or conditions such as ADD and ADHD.
  • Tons of energy but they put it towards video games, TV, and other “digital dangers” that keep them glued to the couch.

Develops Character and
Humanity

We all want our kids to change the world and make an impact on future generations. Through a focus on aiming for and achieving goals, we teach kids to shoot for the stars and incrementally chase goals step-by-step. All while instilling values such as love, empathy, respect, humility, and discipline.

Encourages Teamwork and
Socialization

Nothing unites kids better than sharing a common interest. We teach children to work together to better each other and accomplish great things. Bullying in any form is frowned upon and each child learns to embrace each other’s differences.

Rewards Unbelievable
Listening Skills

By learning the value of respect and humility, kids learn to listen attentively to their elders. It starts with an eagerness to learn all the cool moves and “tricks” they see their friends doing but once they realize what they can accomplish by simply paying attention, they begin listening in other areas of life as well.

How is This Possible?

It’s not magic or some secret ancient wisdom, as cool as that would be. All it really comes down to is our philosophy and commitment in developing the “whole” student as opposed to simply teaching a specific skill.

We strive to raise our students to new heights in not just martial arts but also in overall health, character, discipline, confidence, development, and socialization. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what that “magic” ingredient is, but our combination of a flexible weekly schedule, accommodating approach, and focus on character development just seems to resonate with our students and their families.

We love Elite Leadership Martial Arts, and all it has to offer for our son. I signed him up for karate at ELMA a couple of years ago to help him with building self confidence, and how to overcome challenges. He walked away from soccer when he was in SK, after being expected to play like the older kids, because he tall for his age. ELMA has helped him to rebuild confidence, and teach skills that he now also uses in baseball. He now breaks down challenges instead of getting angry. We love our ELMA family, and all our friends have made. He would also like me to add, he also loves parents night out events.

Our kid has started Karate at Elite Leadership Martial Arts since 2019. We all love this wonderful place!Sensei are nice and professional, kids all seem to cooperate well. Except the practical techniques, we love the way that the Sensei teach kids how to develop good behaviour/habits/leadership toward real life! Especially, their recent "6 Animal Character Development Program" which is very interesting. We find that our kid love to obey the "rules" from the program which help a lot to develop his daily good habits. We highly recommend Elite Leadership Martial Arts:)

I joined Elite Leadership Martial Arts a year and a half ago. Being nearly forty years old, I was concerned it could realistically be too late to begin a martial arts program. But the team at ELMA encouraged me that it’s never too late to make a positive life change. The program has been incredible. The physical and self-defence benefits of learning karate are amazing, and I am in better shape now than I have ever been. The program is also highly focused on improving one’s character. Renshi Jeff and Sensei April consistently inspire discipline, dedication, determination, and perseverance in their students, while always modelling the qualities of patience, encouragement, kindness, and respect. The team embraces the concept of healthy competition and being a good sport, while also reminding students that life isn’t all about being better than someone else, but rather being the best you that you can be. Renshi Jeff talks about the Japanese concept of “kaizen”, meaning “continuous improvement”, and its importance not only in learning karate, but in everything you do. I highly recommend this dojo!

This place is the best! My oldest daughter has loved learning here. I, as a parent, like that the instructors focus not only on martial art skills, but also on the character traits that we would like to see our children model.

I joined Elite Leadership Martial Arts – along with my two daughters – approximately one year ago. As a parent, I have witnessed how the ELMA program has helped my children build confidence, discipline, respect & motivation that are reflected in everyday life. My girls feel a real sense of accomplishment, a sense of belonging, how to set goals, how to handle themselves in situations about bullying & stranger danger. Shihan Jeff Burroughs & Sensei April are dedicated, family oriented, positive role models that demonstrate true leadership & commitment in their teachings. For me, I have also benefited from the ELMA program physically, mentally & socially. Thank you for making such an impact & being a part of all our lives. - Tobi

Kids Martial Arts Program

A Culture of Growth

Martial Arts isn’t an overnight solution. It’s a journey of continuous self-improvement.

Yes your child will likely see dramatic changes in the beginning, but the real power is in their future knowledge and growth.

Each additional class not only helps your child feel healthier, it adds a sense of discipline and purpose to your child’s life as we continue to teach important life lessons and values.

A True Sense of Discipline & Leadership

No longer will you have to worry about whether or not your child is on the right path in life. We know how much effort you place in raising your child to follow your lead and avoid negative influences such as peer pressure, the internet, and practices of other kids.

Our top priority is guidance and offering your child not only support, but the structure and discipline to value the wisdom of parents and teachers.

With a focus on character development and inner strength, we encourage children to not only follow your lead, but to also make meaningful, responsible decisions of their own.

Protection from Dangers & Threats

We teach children that most situations can be resolved by seeking out an authority such as a parent or teacher and thoroughly explaining the situation. We never want to see kids use their Martial Arts skills in the outside world, but we also believe understanding how to respond to a threat is crucial in today’s society.

Our students understand that Self-Defense is a last resort and know how to quickly escape a dangerous situation when necessary.

Activity & Fitness

Kids today get less exercise than ever. With screens and devices constantly capturing attention, it’s incredibly important that kids get the exercise they need to develop.

We use fun activities, challenges, and games to make sure your child completes a full exercise routine while also having a ton of fun! These exercises develop your child’s mind and body while putting energy towards a fun and healthy activity.

This practice of regular exercise not only leaves kids excited for their next session, it creates a powerful habit that develops into a healthy lifestyle as your child grows older.

Socialize and Bond with Other Students

One of our top priorities here at our school is getting students to put down their phones and connect with the world around them.

We show kids how much they miss when they’re glued to their phone as we bond over a fun, rewarding activity.

Parents often notice their children talking more, socializing with other kids, and listening to advice and instructions better as they’re no longer glued to their digital devices.

FAQs

Although any sport or activity has some risk involved, our team of certified instructors follow safety protocols to ensure a safe and supportive environment for our students. In fact, unlike sports which has one adult supervising an entire team, we have multiple instructors monitoring a room at all times making sure everything runs smoothly. We understand that each student has their own unique limits and we encourage rest and feedback during exercise.

Martial Arts is often depicted as a violent activity but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The mindset behind martial arts involves harmony, peace, tranquility, and connection to the body. The majority of training focuses around movement and energy. We teach kids how to talk through conflicts and seek the guidance of an adult with the authority to help. However, if an unavoidable violent situation arises in your child’s life, they now have the tools to fend off the attack and safely escape the situation.

For your free trial, we recommend you come in shorts and a T-shirt to work out and have fun. Once you signup, we offer a free uniform for each new student!

In addition to training children in conflict resolution and self defense, martial arts also instills essential life skills like discipline, honor, confidence, and respect. The process of goal setting and working towards moving forward is extremely rewarding and causes a major shift in maturity.
