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.

Chris really knows his stuff, and is such a nice guy too. He's a great teacher! We are lucky to have him in our community.

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 HELPS YOUR KID DEAL WITH THE EPIDEMIC OF BULLYING

Did you know that Singapore has the world’s 3rd highest rate of bullying?

Fifteen-year-olds experience more bullying in Singapore than teens of the same age in 50 other countries. This is according to a study conducted by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

Latvia and New Zealand topped the list of countries with the highest bullying rates.

We all know that bullying is every parent’s nightmare.

We hear it happening in schools, in the sandbox, playgrounds, and even in our own children’s social circles.

You wouldn’t want to wake up one day and find out that your kid is either a bully or bullied.

Bullying in schools has been a problem for many years now.

Some schools have implemented strategies and made the effort to end bullying, but bullying still exists.

The good news is that karate training can help your kid develop the necessary social skills needed to avoid being a bully or the target of bullies.

Karate training is a way for your child to develop that self-confidence to stand up against bullies.

It also provides a way for your kid to learn vital life skills. Kids who train at Glens Falls Karate Academy learn self-discipline, self-respect, and respect for others.

It’s important for a kid to develop and master these essential life skills. Change has to come from the inside.

Coaches and instructors believe that learning these traits can help stop bullying, and these can be learned through martial arts training.

The question is, do you want to help your kids learn these skills? Do you want your kid to become better members of the society or will you just keep your fingers crossed?

Do you think your kid needs to be empowered to be able to stand up for himself or herself? Why or Why not?

P.S. Next week, we’ll talk about the 3rd reason why your kid needs to learn martial arts. Watch out for it!
