My granddaughter started at Superstar Karate just over a year ago. She was a very shy, quiet child, almost introverted at times; but her bubbly infectious personality meshed well with the incredible group at Superstar Karate. She has grown so much as a result of the great programs at SSK.

SSK has an amazing group of instructors and staff. They build the students up to become the leaders of the future. This is a, "We are FAMILY and We are a TEAM" environment; growth through cooperation. They also promote cooperation across the board to help build a better individual; this includes parents and teachers. They work to ensure that kids are being black belt leaders in all aspects of their lives.

My granddaughter is now in her second year at Superstar Karate and she absolutely loves it. She has also joined their Hyper Pro and Leadership teams, which has completely broken her out of her shell.

I can't say enough good about this amazing group of people. They are building leaders. Family-friendly activities. Just an all around great place to be. They have a Parents Night Out so you can drop your kids for a couple of hours. Your kids will have a blast at this fun themed event and you can be worry free.

My son Bobby has been training @ Superstar Karate for the last 7 years. When he 1st started he couldn't even do a summersault, now he is on the Performance Team. Superstar Karate doesn't only teach Martial Arts , it teaches morals and life lessons that my son uses every day. We're very happy with our decision that we chose Superstar Karate to teach our son, it's much more then an academy, it's family !!! Looking forward to the years to come!!!

My two boys, ages 8 & 6, just recently started at Superstar Karate. I have never seen them be more focused or engaged in any kind of activity as they are in Karate! Especially my son with ADHD and autism! They manage to keep him engaged & determined to try & succeed. While in other activities, he may get frustrated and stop trying, at Superstar, he just tries harder. They are super motivating & positive while still teaching respect & discipline. I truly feel like they will learn so much, not just about Karate, but about life as well. Heck, they cleaned their room for one of the challenges they were given! I’m sold!

When our 6 year old daughter got a post card from the Bartlett 4th of July parade for SuperStar karate, she begged us to sign her up. My husband and I decided to let her sign up for the trial period. It was an amazing deal and if she decided she didn't like it, we weren't going to be out hundreds of dollars. With that said, From the very first time we walked through the doors, we have been treated like family. As I sit there and watch her in her first class, I see the instructors asking the students to make my daughter feel welcome, introduce yourselves and offer help when needed. I think to myself wow, this is so nice. Then the instructor has the students sit down and he starts talking to them. I thought maybe one of them had done something. I was beyond amazed by what the instructor had sat them down for. He started talking to the students about loving who you are and don't be afraid to be the person you are. He asked the students to think about a person that they want to be like and write them a letter. It has now occurred to me that not only is my child learning discipline and self defense , she is also learning valuable life lessons. She's learning what it means to have integrity and to treat people with respect.

She was in the trial period for about 4 weeks and then she hurt her foot and she had to stop going for a few weeks. The owner sent her a special get well gift. When she was able to return, as soon as she walked in everyone greeted her and told her that they missed her and that they were glad she was back. Never in a million years would I have expected this. This is the kind of thing you see when you've been part of something for years not a few weeks. SuperStar karate and the staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. They have been a very positive influence on our daughter. When she comes home from a class, she shows everyone what she has learned and she talks about what the instructor talked to them about that day. This place is so much more than just another place to learn karate.

I had my reservations about having my son join karate (think Karate Kid). After a couple lessons, my view has completely changed. SuperStar Karate is a great partner in teaching discipline, self respect, respect for others, and being a good citizen. I feel like the staff and myself all want the same thing for helping my child succeed. Their missions and mat chats fit all ages. We are so fortunate to have found SuperStar Karate and enrolled in their programs. I wish we had made the decision sooner.

How to Ignore the Haters in Your Life

FACT: Haters don’t really hate you. In fact, they hate themselves because you are a reflection of what they wish to be.

In life when you strive for greatness, you will come across people who will try to drag you down.

They will try to talk you out of your goals 🎯

They will tell you that what you’re attempting is a waste of time ⏱ and that you’ll never be able to accomplish it.

Pursuing your dream can be hard enough.

You will come across many obstacles and experience many failures.

It will be tempting to give up, but you definitely don’t need the negative 👎 input from others.

They won’t like it when you don’t listen, and as a result may begin to chime in more with their disapproval.

But if you truly want to be your best 👍, you must make your own decisions . . .
OR
others will make them for you.

Letting others control your thoughts and actions just so they will like you is no way to live life, unless you want to be a robot.

Block out all the noise (what the haters are saying) and just be yourself all the time.

Remember that an original is always better than a copy and showing your true colors will attract others who like you for the person you are and will support your efforts to succeed.

I leave you with this . . .

“A tiger 🐅  doesn’t lose sleep over the opinions of sheep 🐑”

Questions to Ask Your Child (& Yourself):
• Who are some of the haters in your life?
• What are some ways you could ignore them or block out all their noise?
• How will your life improve by removing the hate from your life?

PARENTING TIP:
Remember, lead by example for your children.
The more you complain about life and what happens to you the more bad habits they will pick up.
The more you let people get to you, the more it will end up happening for them too.
So block out all the negativity and noise in your life and make the best of it.
You children see more than you know.
Make this one simple change in your life and it will impact them greatly.

Next time we will discuss how to turn it up when nothing seems to be going the way you want it to and how to help your child do the same.

Until next time, take care.
