My Son has been attending this club for 1 year now , I have seen and observed such amazing changes, with not only his attitude towards School but his determination and focus on other tasks we set for him and goals .He really enjoys the different number of training activity’s that are on different nights and the one on one help from the experienced instructors, He’s learning serval different techniques on different nights and learning to work with others in small groups or in pairs . He’s achieved a lot in a small time but I’m excited to see the growth in years to come ...If you’re child is wanting to try something different I’d highly recommend giving this club a go ...

Toyakan has been such an exhilarating experience for my daughter. It has helped her grow into an amazing confident small person. The staff hold the highest levels of professionalism whilst remaining friendly and comforting. The club has a real family orientated vibe about it. They teach more than just karate, the children learn morals, responsibility and life lessons to help them in the real world. They learn to be kind and strong.
We love Toyakan

At Home Practicing Tips!
It is common knowledge that the more time and effort you can put into developing a skill
the faster and farther you can become great! But after a long day at school or at the Dojo it may be
hard to find the motivation to practice.
Below are 3 easy steps
to teach a proper inner dialogue for when motivation is hard to come
by. These steps wil
l also teach you how to use a pseudo Jedi Mind Trick and convince them that
it was all THEIR idea!
Step 1
Ask about their ONE most important thing they want to achieve in Martial Arts.
Start the conversation by asking your ninja to think about their goals
in Martial Arts. When you
ask they may say things like “to have fun”, “to see my friends”, “to get my belt”, or the infamous: “I don’t know”. The goal here is to specifically ask for the ONE thing they want to
GET. Don’t forget the key words, “ONE” and “GET”. “ONE” will force them to prioritize and figure out what they really value. “GET” will get them focused on a goal or physical item they
can get (i.e. Belt).
Step 2
Ask them to describe how they will feel when they achieve it!
The next step is important. Our goal here is to get them to emotionally connect with their goal.
We know they want it, but can they tie in the feeling of achievement, pride, and satisfaction? If
we can get them to describe what they will feel, we can trigger the release of “feel good”
hormones in the brain that will further enforce decisions that will pull them towards their goal
and set them up for the next step!
Step 3
If there was ONE thing you could do today, right now, that could help you get to your goal,
what would it be?
This is the closer! We are going back to asking for one thing they can do that will help them get
to their goal. This could be big or small, clear or vague and depending on their age, we may
need to guide them or offer suggestions. Another key point is the
fact that we added a time
frame to the question “RIGHT NOW”.
So, after they decide on which action is most important
(hopefully some sort of practice),
don’t wait, ride that wave of momentum and get going!
Use these steps and let us know how the conversation went! Pro Tip: try using this for
homework!
Sincerely,
Kancho Paul
