Top notch! Love that my family can all participate together. Mr. & Mrs. Rose are amazing at teaching, have heart, and genuinely care for their students and their progress. Even if you have medical issues, they will help you work around that so that you can still participate and progress. Love all of the extracurricular activities they do with the community and scholarships. I have a very strong feeling that they LIVE & BREATHE PERSEVERANCE. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Rose for your dedication to making your school phenomenal!

Our son Nicholas is loving this place. He wants to go everyday. He has had a hard time finding something that he really enjoys. I have seen so much improvement in his manners already. He feels comfortable and enjoys his time there. Thank you for making him feel welcomed. :)

We have been going here for a few months and it started out as a way for my daughter to learn some skills to defend herself against her 2 year old brother. Lol also learning life lessons along the way! She has gained so many friends throughout her journey and loves seeing her instructors each day!! This class has given her so much confidence in herself and so much more!! Thank you for all you guys do. You are wonderful instructors and assistants and I'm glad to have you in our karate journey!!

I am so thankful for Peaceful Warriors. Our boys have found great instructors and teachers but also great friendships. My middle child doesn't even know how much he is learning because their games and stories are so entertaining. I drive 30 mins each trip to attend these classes because I guarantee that we would not find a better dojo.

I think Peaceful Warriors is a great place to take kids who need a little extra help. My son has behavior issues with adhd and anxiety and martial arts has helped him grow so much. He loves it and looks forward to going each time. Mrs. Rose and her staff are so patient with the kids and really makes sure they have what they need to succeed. Im so glad I was able to enroll him in this program and look forward to what he can accomplish.

Peaceful Warriors has a great environment. My son has learned a lot! I enjoy watching my son learn new things and believe that my wife and I found a place with great leadership to help him learn self discipline and many other things to help him down the road.

My daughter loves Peaceful Warriors Karate and so do I. They always encourage her to be her best and do her best. They teach respect and kindness while working hard and having fun. It's a Win Win... She will come home so excited to help clean up or doing something nice without being asked. I love how they teach the kids what to do and say if a stanger tried to grab them. I also love the positive reinforcement. We will continue at Peaceful Warriors 😍

So very glad that we finally signed the twins up for martial arts. They absolutely love the classes and it's been great for them to have a chance to get active and away from their screens. The twins were pretty anxious about starting something new, and the Roses have done a great job easing their worries and getting really great results from them... Mostly by expecting great things, I think.

PATIENCE – TO ACCEPT

Who knew something so simple could be so complicated and hard to apply? Patience is the first key to self-control. Learning to respond to things instead of react to them. Learning to take an extra second to think. Learning to know when to stop and wait, learning to accept the situation for what it is, then respond by deciding to do something about it.

MORE THAN JUST WAITING…

Sure, waiting shows patience, but what is patience exactly? We hear it used so many different ways, this person is wearing on my patience, or I don’t have the patience to wait.

That is because patience doesn’t mean to wait, waiting shows patience, but patience means to accept. In those cases, accepting that you have to wait.

Want to have more patience with your child? Your family?

Then you have to learn to accept, learn to accept them where they are at right now. Of course we want to teach our kids to grow and to do better. This requires us to be patient with them though, and lets face it, in relationships, or as a parent, this is tested to an unbelievable degree. If you have never been there, you just can’t know.

Once you can accept that they are where they are at, they think what they do, they did whatever they did, then you can begin to move forward with ways to compromise or correct it in the future. First you have to accept it to not push a knee jerk response of anger or frustration. This does NOT mean that you shouldn’t set a hard line, or express your disappointment.

But it does mean explain it to them, which requires patience.

That’s right, because fact of it is, you can scare a child all you want, but they won’t learn a lesson from that. It may seem so, but all it really does is cause them to shut down when it comes to that subject or topic and avoid it completely.

That doesn’t really teach them how to handle or cope with similar situations in the future, it teaches them avoidance rather than acceptance and healthy ways to deal with it.

It may be important to the situation to express your frustration or disappointment, but don’t make it ABOUT expressing those things, make it about why you feel that way. Explain to them why its not a healthy way to go about something, explain to them ways to handle it in the future if it pops up.

Here are some more power phrases and questions to use as mantras or family motto’s when talking about patience!
