Celebrating Mom and Dad at Tri State

Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts recently hosted two events in celebration of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Students were able to bring in their parents [or children] for this unique opportunity to train together and spend some valuable, quality time together. Each event included basic fitness work outs, marital arts drills, and of course, what party is complete without pizza! It was a wonderful way for our students to share their skills and heart for martial arts with their loved ones.

Fall Graduation at Tri State

Congratulations to all of our Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts students who received belt promotions in our recent children’s graduation. Unfortunately, due to everyone’s safety with the virus we had to host [the graduation] in a drive-by fashion, similar to the summer graduation. Many families participated in our Halloween theme by decorating vehicles. Many thanks to all parents and families for all your support. The children have worked so far for this promotion, you should all be so proud!

Effects of Quitting on Children

A phenomenal article I came across regarding the negative effects of allowing children to quit. My goal is to constantly make Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts a place of positivity for our students while instilling necessary skills to succeed in life- whether that be in martial arts, a member of society, school/work or generally. Over the years, I have had numerous conversations with students and parents about quitting martial arts. But ask any of those students that continued to train and put in the work if it was worth it and I can guarantee they would say yes.

“Quitting relieves stress. That’s why dogs do it. That’s why adults do it. That’s why you’re tempted to do it every damn day. And quitting can be good; it’s a means of stepping out of a vicious cycle. Unfortunately, for children, it’s more often a means of pulling the plug on the learning process, which necessitates failure and stress. When kids quit, they hurt themselves and establish a habit likely to be damaging later in life. To stop a kid from quitting is to save them from going bump, bump, bump down an initially slippery and ultimately gravely slope

[…]

“We as human beings act according to our beliefs,” explains Koenig. “And we are very consistent with acting according to our beliefs.” If the biggest belief a child absorbs is that learning new things requires work, and that work is worth doing when there’s something on the other side worth moving toward, well, that’s pretty good. Accepting that things aren’t going to be fun all the time but are worth doing anyway is a big step toward maturity.

As a parent, the entire article is well-worth a read, click here to do so.

Summer Camp at Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts

Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts has been dedicated to aiding local summer camp programs for the past several years. As a part of their traditional summer camp program, children come to Tri State’s state of the art facility once a week through the course of camp. They play lots of fun games all while learning the fundamentals of mixed martial arts and our Character Development program. In addition the children are able to come to nightly classes at Tri State Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts, during the length of their program and receive a free month of training thereafter. It continues to be a great time for both children, counselors and our instructors, while allowing us to give back to the local community.

Thank you Bucks County Country Day Camp for the opportunity to work together this Summer.
