HELP IN ONE OF THESE AREAS?
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
RAISING A TEENAGER REQUIRES PERSISTENCE & PATIENCE
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
YOUR TEEN WILL GROW WITH EVERY CLASS!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
LEARN THE VALUE OF RESPECTING THEMSELVES & OTHERS
Teens sometimes seem to be all attitude and no respect – in fact, it can seem like they go out of the way to respect all authority figures.
In our martial arts school, respect is a core discipline. Students must treat their instructor and fellow students with respect at all times.
Ultimately, teens who study martial arts learn that when they respect themselves, others will respect them, too.
JUDGMENT IS AN ESSENTIAL SKILL IN MARTIAL ARTS
Whether they’re in a martial arts class or in a competition, the difference between a good performance and a poor one often comes down to judgment.
Students learn how to make judgments on the fly using the information they have on hand in conjunction with their training.
They also learn how to differentiate between good instincts and bad ones – and to use that information to make judgments.
GET YOUR KIDS OFF THE COUCH AND INTO MARTIAL ARTS
It might seem like your teenager would happily spend all day sitting on the couch playing video games or posting on social media.
The electronics epidemic might be a good thing in many ways, but teenagers still need physical activity to stay fit and healthy.
Martial arts classes provide teens with challenging workouts in a fun, social setting that rivals any video game.
HOW TO SET (AND ACHIEVE) GOALS
Teens sometimes seem not to care about setting goals either in the short-term or the long-term.
The study of martial arts requires them to pursue goals on a regular basis. Each skill they learn, and each belt they earn, represents a goal that they have achieved.
Goal-setting in this way provides teens with the tools they need to set achievable goals in school, at home, and in life.

Thank Goodness I heard about PPKC when I moved to Acton! The Pippos family is a great support for the Acton community in so many ways. I first knew of the Center for their after school program, which I’d say is the BEST in town. We’re very unhappy with the AB Community Education Extended Care program and fortunately PPKC had an opening and we’re able to move our daughter to their afterschool program starting in January on 2020 and that was the best decision we could have made. The environment is so bright and so positive, our daughter was much happier, with the plus that now she was also doing Karate. Sensei Peter is a great leader, everybody loves him. After the pandemic, PPKC quickly started offering online lessons which was great for everyone in the middle of the lockdown and with so much anxiety for what was going on. Nicole Pippos even organized a few time online activities through zoom, like Bingo or treasure hunts. When school started in the fall of 2020, they started the Empower Academy for kids taking online classes which has been a lifesaver for working parents and has offered some sense of normalcy to our children. I cannot express my gratitude for the PPKC family for the positive impact they have in our life. We love you!
My 5 and 8 year olds have been taking classes for almost 2 months, and love it here so much. The instructors are incredibly kind and caring while also teaching them discipline and how to follow directions. They are great with making every class a blend of having fun and learning karate.
