I love doing the Kick boxing class I started in the beginning of January and have lost 15lbs so far. I can’t wait to see how much I love next month!

EMA has been a great place to introduce martial arts to my boys. The Siedel family runs it well. It's a nurturing environment to develop discipline, coordination, balance, strength, endurance and character.

Elevate Martial Arts is fabulous! The values, dedication and integrity that they instill in each student is truly amazing. We are grateful our son has the opportunity to be a part of the school. Thank you to the Seidel family for all that you have done for Colin, we appreciate each and every one of you!

We love Elevate Martial arts! It's a great place for the family to train together, in a supportive environment. My kids have increased in confidence and respect because of their training. They are learning to work hard and persevere toward their goals. Students encourage and help each other and learn how to be leaders and teammates. You never know when kids get involved with sports if it is going to be a positive experience, but here I don't have to worry. Definitely recommend.

My 8 year old son absolutely loves it here...after looking at several local places that offer karate, Elevate Martial Arts stood out by far as the perfect fit for him. Between the level of excellence and personal connection this family owned business is top notch and in my opinion the best in the area!

A great martial arts school ran by a phenomenal family of martial artist. Not only do they place an emphasis on leadership skills, but they also focus on the academic development of their school age students. This is a place where students can learn and grow in a safe environment and where the instructors will not let you fail. You will reach your full potential. They will make you work, you will sweat, and you will break barriers, but it will all be worth it in the end!

My favorite part of Elevate Martial Arts is the character building they do. They do not just teach karate skills, they teach solid life skills. The owners are absolutely wonderful! They always have a great attitude, are very patient and very kind. Could not recommend this place more!!!

Learning To Become Uncomfortable

Not many people enjoy being challenged and stretched.  Whether you’re an adult or child, most people are simply not fond of being challenged.  Most of us prefer when things roll smoothly and we’re familiar with our tasks.  Unfortunately, when we’re comfortable we’re on autopilot and when we’re on autopilot, we’re not growing.

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.” Frederick Douglass.

As parents, we often dislike the thought of our children struggling, it’s our instinct to step in and help them.  However, it is in those challenges that we grow and develop new skills.  You’ll never truly know what you are capable of until you are met with a challenge to conquer.  Here are just a few benefits of learning to work through challenges.

  • You learn to problem solve.
  • You learn to look beyond circumstances and think outside of the box.
  • You learn to utilize information and resources.
  • You learn to discover untapped talents and potential.
  • You learn to network and collaborate with others.

Even though there is comfort in the familiar, there is growth in the unfamiliar. Learning to make yourself uncomfortable “on purpose” is one of the best ways to gain confidence and better your skills.  If you are shy for instance, the comfortable thing to do would be to sit by yourself at lunch on your phone alone.  The uncomfortable thing to do would be to start a conversation with someone you don’t know.  It would be comfortable to go home everyday after school and play video games by yourself.  Making yourself uncomfortable would be to join a club or get involved with a sport.  By learning to become uncomfortable on purpose in both of these scenarios, you would end up gaining more confidence, meeting new people and learning new things.

Every successful person that you can think of has had to learn this principle.  In order to reach great heights, they had to learn how to manage challenges.  It is impossible to do extraordinary things with ordinary thoughts.  So the next time you or your child wants to shy away from a task because it seems difficult, remember, there is no growth in what’s familiar.  If we want to elevate our lives we’ve got to be willing to be uncomfortable. Here’s a few tips to help you get started.

  • Start Small – Little victories turn into giant accomplishments.
  • Make a list – Think of 5 – 10 things that are uncomfortable with that you know would be a benefit to you if you learned to do them.
  • Check off your list – Look for ways to crush your list.  When my kids were younger, to help them learn to become less shy, When they’d ask for pizza, I’d make them order it themselves.  At first they hated the idea of having to talk to a stranger but after a few times, it was no longer a concern.
  • Make a decision – You must make up your mind that nothing will hold you back from being your best.
  • Celebrate the attempts and victories – Whether your attempt at your goal goes well or not, celebrate the fact that you were brave enough to go after it.
  • Never give up – You always win, when you refuse to quit.

Challenges are what drive us to become the best versions of ourselves.  Practice these tips for yourselves and with your kids and you’ll find that nothing will stop you from achieving your goals.  To learn more about how to Elevate your life, contact us TODAY!
