- CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM -

Striving 4 Excellence

character_development

DOUVRIS Martial Arts strongly believes in developing the character of our students along with the martial arts skills we teach them. The Striving for Excellence character development program was developed with over 30 years experience in teaching children respect, confidence and self-discipline. Striving for Excellence gives our members the opportunity to discuss, practice, and apply character development traits in their lives. The program includes a Karate Kids Workbook and a Karate Tykes Colouring book which children complete each month at home. The lessons outlined in the workbook are designed to accompany the “Word of the Month” which instructors discuss with students during each class.

The Word of the Month for October is

Courage

For us at Douvris Martial Arts, courage means trying new things even if they scare us. And like anything else, courage increases through regular practice. That’s how we help students become brave, by teaching them to push through their limits and improve themselves every day.

“Everyone that steps through these doors takes the first step in showing us their courage,” Sensei Cody Diesbourg explains, adding that it takes guts to launch yourself into a new adventure, even if only to find out whether you like it or not.

Karate Trial Offer

Our Karate Trial Offer includes two classes and a new uniform for $19.95. It is valid for anyone aged 4 through adult. Our Karate Trial Offer is available at all of our Ottawa locations.

Word of the Month: Focus

September 1, 2019

A key benefit of karate is the way it helps children improve their focus. Learning new techniques, mastering complicated fight sequences and sparring in a ring all require children to pay attention and keep paying attention, in a way they find really fun and rewarding. It’s a classic win-win situation.
