"We teach children that the first two priorities in their lives should be their families and their studies; everything else must come after that."
--Grand Master Kubota

There is a common belief that martial arts training can turn children into bullies. Nothing could be further from the truth. Martial arts training teaches discipline, respect, and responsibility. It also teaches children to concentrate and achieve goals. These skills are easily transferred to the child's every day life. Far from teaching children to become bullies, an education in the martial arts helps to prepare a child to become a useful and more honorable citizen.
