The core business of Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy (BRKKA) is to provide realistic self-defense instruction in both private and group settings. The BRKKA Dojo teaches traditional Tracy’s Kenpo and kickboxing under the direction of Sensei Doug Tate and wife Ms. Patty.
The need for self-defense, martial arts training for both youths and adults is tremendous in this day and age for a multitude of reasons. Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing offers programs that provide the following value and personal growth opportunities:
1. Self-Defense: This is number one reason that sparks most people’s interest in the martial arts. The martial arts teach the techniques of how to defend yourself, and as important, teach you the way to think about and prepare to defend yourself. They also help you build up the reflexes you need if you’re ever in an undesirable situation, and give you the confidence to fight back.
2. Self-Confidence: As students become more proficient in their martial arts training, their confidence gets a big-boost, becoming more self-assured and confident. The Sensei’s (Teacher’s) encouragement goes a long way to help them achieve this goal, but a strong confidence level will extend far beyond the Dojo (Martial Arts Studio).
3. Discipline: In the martial arts, there is constant repetition in drills and practices with strong emphasis on detail. There are rules and protocols to be followed. All of this teaches respect – respect for the Sensei, respect for the Dojo, respect for one another - both opponents and colleagues – and self-respect. It also teaches the benefits of frequent practice, and the skill of patience. While we agree that practice makes perfect, we enhance that statement to read – “Perfect Practice makes Perfect”.
4. Emphasis on Individual Achievement: While teamwork and sportsmanship are emphasized in most team sports, at some point most children need to be told why they aren’t a starter or why their stuck in right field.
In the martial arts, each person’s success is based on his or her own individual merits and individual ambition will help achieve success.
5. Gender Equity: The martial arts are one of the few sports where both boys and girls can play together. Everyone can benefit from learning self-defense. It also gives brothers and sisters an opportunity to practice together and learn from one another as well (not to mention the convenience of having kids and parents in one place at a time).
6. Exercise: The typical martial arts class will often be comprised of warm-up calisthenics, teaching and practicing of moves and possibly some sparring. The warm up and practice comprise the bulk of the time, and for that time students will be constantly on the go – stretching, crunches, punches and kicks. The workout each student receives will not only assist in the natural development of his or her muscles, but also help them build stronger Cardio-Vascular systems.
7. Respect for Strength: As students train, they will learn to respect their newfound strength and techniques. They will also gain a disdain for bullying as well.
8. The Entire Family can Participate: Most martial arts schools offer classes for both adults and children. While most do not run those classes simultaneously, they are usually one right after the other. This means that you can watch your children workout, and then they can watch you. If you have the proper space for it, you can practice with each other at home, and learn from one another. This will give you a special activity to use as a bonding tool with your family. You can also become physically fit together as BRKKA offers family workouts multiple times every week.
9. The Never-Ending Season: The Martial Arts are a year-round affair. As mentioned above, your exercise routine remains constant the entire year. Having this consistency also helps build upon discipline, and allows students to progress very quickly.
10. Conclusion: Martial Arts provide both adults and child with an excellent physical workout, and also act as a vehicle to provide a mental and emotional outlet as well.
