After 7 years of training I can say that this is THE location to go to if you are looking to learn karate. The atmosphere is very positive, classes are fun and teach you many things and the instructors are superb. I would recommend this location for anybody.

My boys love going to classes every week. All the staff are friendly and professional. My boy's self confidence has increased, since joining Boundless Martial Arts.

I highly recommend classes for any age.

We have been part of the Boundless family for the last year and a half. Sensei and the instructors are fair but firm with students and take the time to ensure everyone performs to the best of their ability while pushing to improve at the same time. I have recommended Boundless in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

My son and I are both training here almost a year now!. So far it is a rewarding experience. My son joined due to behaviour issues and they teach good behavior as much as they do karate. He has come a long way with the amazing summer mind body and spirit challenge at the dojo. He has also benefit from the life skillz talks. The dojo has been great for their patience and reinforcing good values. It's also a great bonding experience for us. I joined for the excercise component, they have not let me down. Starting as a over weight mom they are very good about adjusting the workout not to kill me, but still encourage me to push myself. Learning martial arts also seems to give me anxiety, again they are very forgiving. The use of japanese words was also a stressor for me due to my hearing disability, again they are accommodating. I couldn't be happier to be beginning this journey with boundless.

3 Tips on Bringing Your Family Together

 

Family time is important for a variety of reasons. However, family time does not have to involve remaining idle. There are plenty of activities families can do together that will be enjoyable and bring all members closer together. Here is a look at 3 activities that could bring your family closer together.

 

Martial arts 

Joining a martial arts program opens a whole new world. But it is difficult to truly understand and appreciate all the nuances of martial arts without actually experiencing it firsthand. Families who take martial arts have a unique support system that allows them to fully understand the unique challenges involved with this activity. The shared experience also allows family members to practice with one another outside of actual classes and provides a common topic of conversation throughout the week. There is also a sense of accomplishment in meeting the periodic goals set in martial arts class. Families who meet those goals develop a reciprocal pride for another.

There are even spinoff activities that result from a family who practices martial arts together. Dinner after a martial arts session or even an evening snack can provide families with more time to sit down together and bond. Shopping for martial arts gear can be a family activity and watching any martial arts bouts or movies can also be enjoyed collectively.

“Love the teachers and staff at Boundless! I have already seen a huge positive change in my son. I’m looking forward to many more happy and productive years at Boundless!”
Rachel Trudel
“We were welcomed with open arms to this family feel martial arts school. All the teachers are friendly, professional and strict in there teachings but also patient to make sure all the students are learning and having fun. Our son has become more confident and always looks forward to going to karate which he never had with a routine activity before. Our son just received his advanced white belt and he was so proud of himself and can’t wait to practice more and more to keep advancing with Boundless Martial Arts.”
Alison Rees
“We started out with their trial- While our son was reluctant and didn’t want to go at first, now having confidence and success in achieving his second belt, he can’t get there fast enough twice a week! His focus has improved and he strives to work hard..& loves the PD days and the Kids Nights Out!”

 

 


Volunteering 

There is no shortage of community events that are in need of volunteers. Non-profit organizations are constantly on the lookout for assistance. The good news is that many volunteer events do not require a long-term commitment. The change is also good to keep things fresh. This is a great way for families to come together and do something good for their community. On holidays, there is always a need for people to help with the distribution of food and clothing to the less fortunate.

 

Meanwhile, local charities are always looking for helping hands. That could be as simple as signing up for a 5k walk or spending a day interacting with seniors at a nursing home. Families can also work together to find a new volunteer project every week. That task is yet another one the entire family can embark upon together.

 

Biking

Riding a bike is a great way to get outside and remain active. But biking as a family can go beyond just a couple of trips around the block. There are bike trails and paths all over every city and town. Most parks also have designated areas for bikes. This allows families to get outside and do something great for their health and that applies to both the body and mind. In a world that is inundated with technology, there is no time to check your phone or computer when you are riding a bike.

 

Families can be free of the technology distraction and truly enjoy the outdoors. This is an activity that can be done anywhere as families who are away on vacation can either rent bikes or bring their own along with them. It is also an activity that applies to parents with kids of all ages.

Lasting Effects

The effect of these activities has a number of other impacts. First, they are all a great stress reliever. No matter what is going on in your life, these activities allow everyone to forget their troubles, even if it is just for a little while. These activities also promote self-confidence and decrease the likelihood of behavioral problems among children. Perhaps the most optimal benefit is that family activities increase the likelihood of success for children. That is because it creates a positive atmosphere by creating both stability and support.
