I've have known Chris Murphy for several years and he is a wonderful man. His teaching style not only teaches the art of Karate, but he teaches the children pride, respect of self and others and hard work.

Had the pleasure of giving a seminar there this weekend....Sensei Murphy should be very proud. He runs a top notch school with a bunch of talented students. I am very proud to have him represent us as his governing organization.

I had my first lesson in Goshin Ryu Karate on 1/12/2015. Even though I have a martial arts background myself in both Jiu-Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do, I found Sensei Murphy's class to be fantastic. It was amazing to work on my sparring skills with such a knowledgeable instructor as him. I am very much looking forward to continuing my training with him.

My son was looking for a new athletic activity this past Spring and decided to try karate. I couldn't be happier with Glens Falls Karate Academy, and the positive influence Sensei Murphy has had on my son. It's a great program for athletes of all abilities. Great place!

My daughter has been a student here for years and I would highly recommend this school to anyome looking to learn new martial arts and not be like every other martial arts school in the area! Chris is a great teacher and leader to these kids. They offer adult classes too, Come try a class and make your own opinion.

My daughter started a few months ago and has enjoyed the challenges, friendships, structure, community and education that sensei Chris Murphy provides. There is never a moment she isn't excited to go to class! As a parent I have noticed the difference in my child's focus, attitude and confidence not only about herself but in what she is doing as well!! Thank you sensei!!!

KARATE EDUCATES YOUR KID ABOUT THE IMPORTANT VALUES AND PRINCIPLES OF LIFE

In previous weeks, we’ve talked about how martial arts can help your kid deal with bullying.

Well, did you know that karate is a great way to make your kids bully-proof?

In the United States alone, three million children miss school due to fear of bullies. Having your kid learn karate can help prepare your kid. They learn to defend themselves against bullies without turning them into one.

That’s the most important thing about training at Glens Falls Karate Academy. It is not just about learning self-defense techniques. It’s mostly a personal development program.

Karate training includes an education on important values and principles that we use in everyday life.

Through martial arts classes, kids learn to overcome obstacles. It allows them to take a closer look at their own strengths. It allows them to see their capabilities.

Your kid will also be able to learn the highly significant values of integrity, humility, honor, respect, courage, discipline, and indomitable spirit.

The art of failing forward is another important principle in life that every kid needs to learn.

All throughout our lives, we are bound to fail. But martial arts training fosters an environment where it is okay to embrace failure. We can look at failure as an opportunity to make ourselves better.

These values and principles are not taught in the traditional classroom and textbooks. But they are definitely important in a kid’s life. Do you also believe that martial arts can open amazing opportunities for your kid to learn the important values and principles of life?

We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

P.S. Next week, we’ll talk about the last but not the least reason why your kid needs to learn karate.

Keep an eye out!
