Our daughter was very shy and quiet and had a hard time making friends. We signed her up for the KarateBuilt Grand Rapids Pre-School Program in Grand Rapids, MI and have absolutely loved the changes that we have seen. Her confidence and self-esteem have sky rocketed. The KarateBuilt Grand Rapids instructors are very caring and really know how to connect with the younger students. She can’t wait to go to class and talks about it all of the time.

Erin Wiseman-Parkin

We've been taking lessons for quite a while now as a family at KarateBuiltGR. 2 adults, and 2 kids. Both kids have special needs. One has CP and uses hearing aids. There are also other special needs kids that attend, and everyone receives exactly the challenge they need for their ability. Is this place only for families? Absolutely not! They accommodate everyone from classes for a single child, for a single adult, for couples, and even for full families! Mr. and Mrs. Flees and their children are GREAT INSTRUCTORS. It is magical to see Mrs. Flees transition to the children's Tiger class and funny voices and her sincere connections with the itty bitty kids to the adult black belt and leadership classes where she brings it 100%. Our 4 and 6 yr old always feel challenged, as do my Hubby and myself!!!!!! The Flees' children are also wonderfully talented instructors who have also worked very hard for their black belts and work hard in class daily in teaching, and in their own classes where they continue to hone their skills. Mr. Flees has a great way of connecting to students and families with being funny and wise all at the same time. They whole family has a spirit and energy that is necessary for learning and training. Is this cheap? Nope. It is a SOLID INVESTMENT in your future & your children's future. I am LOVING seeing the growth for my children, but also for my Hubby and myself as we practice and work hard towards earning black belts as a FAMILY !!! My children's attitudes have changed, as have mine. We have started saying, "Yes, Sir" and "Yes, Ma'am" all the time, and the respect we all show for one another has increased, too. If you are looking for a place that has instructors and family that sincerely CARE, this is a great place to be.

3 Benefits That Kids Get From Martial Arts

Better Social Skills

Higher Physical Fitness Level

Better Behavior At Home

Increased High Self-Esteem

Kids who have a low self-esteem or low self-worth tend to become the victims of bullying. The Pre-school martial arts classes at KarateBuilt Grand Rapids will provide a source of pride as your child achieves each new rank. With each new belt comes a boost in their confidence and belief in themselves. They learn how to set goals and how to work hard to achieve them. As they spend more time training with us, they will develop into strong, confident leaders of the future.

A Foundation of Respect

Martial arts is a very structured environment that requires children to listen, pay attention and follow instructions. They learn to respect their instructors, adults and authority. The belt ranking system encourages them to strive to achieve and earn respect from their peers.

These are all qualities that flow over into their home lives. Not only do they learn new martial arts moves, they also gain a solid foundation of respect that puts them on a good path for later when they enter school.

Gain Friends and Learn Cooperation

Martial arts students share a common bond of trying to learn new moves and advance through the ranks. This creates the perfect environment to meet new kids and form new friendships. The training at KarateBuilt Grand Rapids creates a shared experience that fosters a camaraderie amongst the students. There are plenty of small group activities used during the course of our sessions that teach the value of cooperation and teamwork. It is a lesson that will last a lifetime.

This is a GIFT that will last a lifetime through school, college and into the work world.
