This place has allowed me to feel strong again, to feel like I have some power and some control over my health. It kicks my behind but I love it! Can't wait for the next class:)

I frequent the adult kickboxing classes and have a great time! The instructors are super friendly and helpful! Classes tend to last 50ish minutes and 25 of that is spent doing bag work. Then there is an extended warm up and cool down on either side. These classes are definitely newbie-friendly, as they are more fitness/exercise-oriented than skill/technique-oriented. The classes can feel a little redundant, so I like when they incorporate different moves and conditioning exercises throughout the class. Thanks guys

I've been waiting to write a review. After 4 weeks of kickboxing and one week of my kids taking classes I'd say we, as a family, are hooked. I've never had a better workout than I do during the kickboxing classes. I enjoy the instructors and the different variations they provide. As for my children, they are completely thrilled to be doing something new, staying active, meeting new people and gaining confidence. I truly hope this is a long term thing for all of us!

I have been attending Champions since April, and I have fallen in love with the adult kickboxing class! It's the first time that I have ever been excited to go workout! I'm actually bummed if I have to miss a class. The instructors are very friendly and really help push you to keep going! They switch up the workouts so you're never bored, and let's face it the 80's rock music is just a bonus! It's a great group of people, a great atmosphere, and a great way to stay active and healthy! Thanks guys!

Of 3 local martial arts facilities, Champions was the only one to give me good prompt information, professional customer service, and a welcome feeling. My son is almost 5 years old and has been welcomed into his class by staff and students alike, and LOVES it. The atmosphere, structure, and quality of instruction are AMAZING. We’re happy to be part of the Champions family!

We love Champions! My son has been a student here for 2.5 years (since he was 3) and he's learned so much. The entire staff really cares about the kids. They have a lot of fun and get their energy out while learning. The little ninja's classes are 40 minutes and take place every evening (there is one Saturday morning as well) so you have a choice to bring your child which ever day/time works best for your schedule. It's really helpful to us as a large, busy family to have the flexibility. They even off afterschool care, camps, and parents night out. We have only done the PNO so far but our son has a BLAST. He talks about it for days after.

We cannot state enough what an amazing opportunity and experience this has been for our son Isaac.
The staff are amazing with the children and teach them not just MMA but a great deal of self control and respect.
I really don't pay for just martial arts training, I pay for Isaac to learn respect, control, working together and so much more!
He has so much fun and loves the teachers.

Develop Confidence through the Martial Arts to Defeat Bullying

Martial Arts and Bullying

 

Usually, when somebody talks about the role of martial arts in stopping bullying, the conversation turns to the physical. Martial Arts training has many more benefits than physical ones, however, and some of these benefits can put an end to bullying without a situation degrading to the point where punches are thrown or somebody is attacked.

 

Understanding Bully Psychology

 

There are as many different types of bullies as there are bullies in total. One of the things that  training such can do to prevent bullies from making a victim of your child, however, has nothing to do with those bullies. A student of martial arts engages in physical confrontations – very controlled physical confrontations – every time they go to class. They take on bigger opponents in them, tackle challenges they don’t think that they can take on at first and push themselves in other ways all the time. Martial Arts provide all of these benefits in a supportive and healthy environment, on top of it. All of this combines to give one of the best benefits of martial arts training: confidence.

Developing Confidence

While many parents probably entertain fantasies of striking back physically at their own childhood bullies, the best antidote to bullying is to be confident. If you have training in and you have been part of the encouraging, challenging and constructive environment that the training fosters, it’s unlikely that you’re going to have confidence problems. When you have a child in these classes, the confidence they get out of attending the classes and taking on the challenges at the classes is apparent in their personality. In many cases, Martial Arts doesn’t help the child deal with bullying by making them a better fighter than the bully; it helps them by making them an obviously undesirable target for a bully.

 

If you are in Mebane and are interested in Martial Arts classes  because your child is being bullied, remember that there is more to combating bullying than physical retaliation. The best reason to sign your child up for martial arts training is for your child’s own benefit, not to accommodate the aggression of the bully. Martial Arts training will certainly make your child a less appealing target for bullies, but it will also help your child to build their own self-confidence and to believe in their own abilities, which are things that come from the inside, not from repelling external threats.
