Karate in Mahwah nj

At Bill Stevens Karate we have many

methods for motivating students.

Because of our proven success in the lives of countless adults

and children, I’ve suggested martial arts as a vehicle for your

family’s improvement. The principles we practice in class have

larger relevance for children in school, for adults in the work-

place and for families at home.

Where do you start? With a positive mental attitude, of course.

It was American industrialist Henry Ford who once said, “There

is no man living who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks

he can do.” Our potential is limited only by the constraints we

put upon ourselves.The sky’s the limit, as long as you aim high.

It’s something we tell our children, as we look to the future,

but I find that adults don’t apply this same positive thinking

to their own experiences. Whether they’re stuck in a rut or

enmeshed in bad habits, they don’t see how their particular

situation can be improved.

One of the first things we have our new students do, regardless

of their age, is to break a wooden board with their hand or

foot. This is a good way to experience the enabling feeling

that comes from doing martial arts.

It’s also a powerful metaphor about overcoming obstacles

and breaking through barriers. It is the first of many triumphs

that will come your way.
