This is a great Karate school. The staff are excellent at what they do, very great with children and adults. My kids love it and so do I. I started taking the adult class about a month or so ago. I have lost weight and am getting in shape, and to top it all off I'm learning a lot and loving it:)

My grand daughter attended for the first time on Monday, and she fell in love with it. The kids have a lot of fun as well as learning important things for every day life. The best part for parents is you can watch your child as they are learning. I give the school an A+!

We started our 5 year old here in March and we have already seen a marked improvement in his self control and behavior, he is learning to control his body and be more aware of others. Our little guy loves his instructors and has a feeling of pride every time he learns a new move. I would recommend this dojo to anyone interested in getting their child started in martial arts.

We have been attending karate here for 5 months. My son loves it and is always excited for karate nights. He is learning discipline and how to help others. Tonight he cleaned the kitchen up all my hisself without even being asked. I highly recommend OKS! All the staff is friendly and willing to go the extra mile for the students.

It is awesome how they work, train and play with the kids. They teach and coach the kids to be upstanding, fine, respectful young people. They also teach them to have fun.

This Karate dojo is very beneficial to the youth as well as adults in that it does an effective job in teaching them the value of hard work. One major factor that sets this dojo apart from other dojos is the emphasis the instructors put on actually mastering the material and techniques for each level before advancing to the next level. Many dojos will advance students due to "time in rank" without properly ensuring that they are prepared for advancement. The sensei of this school truly pushes and encourages the students to be at their best and to achieve their goals. Adult students will effectively learn to utilize some of the ancient weapons of Japanese culture. Overall, this is.a great environment to train in martial arts.

OKS’ Core Values

Our beliefs.

They guide every decision that we make at OKS Martial Arts and Fitness in Macon. And outside of the dojo.

Our TEAM got together and came up with several. They are what we look to do/have/be as Instructors.. and as an individual person when we are not in our uniform :o)

We have 8 PILLARS:

OKS Martial Arts and Fitness CORE Values:

  • Optimism – Always find the bright side
  • Perseverance – Find answers, not excuses
  • Empower – Make individuals better versions of themselves
  • Be Exceptional – Do everything better than great
  • Have Fun – Gets Results
  • Set an Example – Everywhere
  • Do Extra – Look to help
  • Seek Perpetual Growth – For OKS and personally

 

They set our path and keep us focused on doing the right thing. Do YOU have a set of CORE values? We teach them at our school to get kids AND adults thinking about making a list – and it helps focusing on them to be extra awesome!

All you have to do to make your family’s own is to think of maybe 3 to 5 very important traits to always have, tactics to achieve the goals you want and maybe take some ideas from companies that set a good example/you wouldn’t mind “being like.”

The first one is OPTIMISM. Personally, I am a huge optimist. Doesn’t matter what goes “wrong,” I will find a way to get past it and it will only get better. When we look at a student, we try to complement them on something they are doing RIGHT, rather than just corect, correct, correct. One sneaky tip I can give the Macon parents reading this Martial Arts blog is to praise the kid NEXT TO YOUR KID (brother, sister, classmate, friend, etc). When they see us in class telling Jane what an excellent low stance she has, it is certain that Johnny next to her is gonna go lower lol!

I’m optimistic I’ll see you in a class so we can start making your life EVEN BETTER soon! :O)

Next is Perseverance. We actually start implementing this as part of their belt tests in the Intermediate ranks at our school. They have to go above and beyond what they think they are capable of. For example, jumping rope. What is the longest you have jump roped? Anyone you know? Our record is 3.75 HOURS! In a row. No more than 5 sec break to fix rope. By a 13yr old! Of course the rope hit feet, etc, but they just kept on jumping the whole time! That is SUPER COOL and teaches them that little things add up and about the 60% rule (look it up :o). Each kid does their own perseverance against themselves. They don’t have to beat the record, just do the best they possibly can.

Check out our trials if you’d like you or your child to have more perseverance!

Next blog will be on Empowering and Being Exceptional!
