Partners In Development
We Understand The Difficulties Parents Face In Raising A Child And Design Lessons To Target These Challenges.
Almost every parent we’ve ever encountered has more or less the same core challenges. Kids either don’t listen to simple instructions such as turn off the TV or pick up their clothes. Have focus or behavioral disorders that prevent them from reaching their true potential. Or they have difficulty socializing and suffer from low self esteem.
We’ve dealt with it all here at West Vancouver and believe that the secret to your child’s development is a mix of rewarding physical activity and a focus on instilling essential life lessons. Through psychology, eastern wisdom practiced for generations, and patience, we help kids reach new heights and develop a love for everything that makes them so special.
Rest assured knowing your child isn’t just benefiting from a fun physical activity, they’re also capturing skills such as focus, discipline, respect, empathy, confidence, and more through their training.

Frequently Asked Questions
Although any sport or activity has some risk involved, our team of certified instructors follow safety protocols to ensure a safe and supportive environment for our students. In fact, unlike sports which has one adult supervising an entire team, we have multiple instructors monitoring a room at all times making sure everything runs smoothly. We understand that each student has their own unique limits and we encourage rest and feedback during exercise.
Martial Arts is often depicted as a violent activity but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The mindset behind martial arts involves harmony, peace, tranquility, and connection to the body. The majority of training circles around movement and energy. We teach kids how to talk through conflicts and seek the guidance of an adult with the authority to help. However, if an unavoidable violent situation arises in your child’s life, they now have the tools to fend off the attack and safely escape the situation.
Our classes are tailored towards accommodating students regardless of their weight, age, abilities, or energy levels. Astonishingly, many of our students have tried sports and other athletic activities only to realize it’s not for them. Martial arts is often a sanctuary in these cases as competition is eliminated and each student only attempts what they feel comfortable doing.
Other than training children in conflict resolution and self defense, martial arts also instills essential life skills like discipline, honor, confidence, and respect. The process of goal setting and working towards moving forward is extremely rewarding and causes a major shift in maturity.
With any new activity, it’s common to face some resistance in the beginning. We make great efforts to keep classes fun and lighthearted but at the end of the day it’s also an educational experience. We encourage parents to give us a few sessions to get through to new students but in the event your child wants to cancel, we offer a full money back guarantee.
