   Three Reasons Why Your Child May Be Bullied This School Year!

#1 If your child lacks self confidence he will give off an aura of weakness to the kids who will look for it!  

Solution: Martial Arts has been proven to increase confidence and help kids to stand up for themselves. A child needs ability to have the confidence to stand up to the bullies. He can't get ability without practice, supervision, and an excellent team of instructors to guide him and develop that confidence. National Karate has been doing this for 40 years in Oklahoma City.

#2 If your child is a nice kid who is kind and helps others, it is a sign of weakness to those kids who are looking for others to control.

Solution: Martial Arts stresses helping others, but to stand up to agression from others who target you. At National Karate, we teach our kids that you can not win a fight, but no one has the right to hurt you and you must defend yourself as a final option!

#3 If your child keeps to himself and does not interact with other kids he will become a target!

Solution: When your child is working on personal goals, such as his next belt exam or a competiton coming up, he is more likely to exude confidince and share his goals with others at school and in the neighborhood.  At National Karate we host competitions four times a year, and look to advance our kids in belt rank three times per year!                  

                                   Mom and Dad's that both WORK!

       Don't Put your Kid in a Holding Tank!  
This may be the best thing you have ever done for your child!

     Day Care Centers and other After School Programs can't compare to the NKI After School Martial Arts Program!    

     We pick up Your Kid From School!  We have a "Bully Defense and Stranger Danger" class EVERY day!  We teach responsibility, respect, focus and discipline EVERY day                                                                                    

HEY! WORKING PARENTS!:   When you both work, you have to put your child somewhere!  

             It's TIME to enroll in this program for 2018/19!
     Do you need an AFTER SCHOOL TRANSPORTED KARATE PROGRAM? We have it...... Pay weekly, OR monthly! Designed for kids ages 6 to 11 that attend the Putnam City North School district, we will transport to our facility from the elementary schools or you can drop off your child at the studio! Our rates are competitive with the Day Cares that are out there at $89.00 per week...... BUT, If you are one of the 1st 10 to enroll for the 2016/2017 school season the rate is $79.00 per week with an automated payment plan!

Three Reasons Why Your Child Needs National Karate!

#1 Obesity! 30% of children are considered to be overweight for a variety of reasons, inactivity is one of the most crucial!

Solution: Martial Arts has been proven to increase energy and burn calories through vigorous activity to develop skills through drills and activity supplied by National Karate.

#2 Bullying! If your child has not been bullied yet, he will be, it is a national problem and administrators are not likely to solve the problem as they are afraid of legal action against them.

Solution: If your child is confident and knows how to defend against the most basic of attacks, he will be able to defend himself and make the correct choice of whether to walk away or defend himself when neccessary with training from National Karate.

#3 Character Development - Good attitude, discipline, confidence, and responsibilty are essential to developing a successful adult.

Solution: Martial Arts has been proven to increase confidence, self awareness, and positive attitudes in children. National Karate's Martial arts Creed is essential in this process! Honesty in the Heart - Don't lie, don't cheat, don't steal, help your friends neighbors and your family. Strength in the Body- No drugs, no smoking, no alcohol, get to bed on time, eat the foods that your mom puts on your plate. Knowledge in the Mind - Make good grades, get your homework in on time, listen to your teacher and take part in extra projects.

What Style of Karate is This?
We are a Professional Multi-Level Tae Kwon Do Studio in business in Okc since 1969. We believe in the "Bruce Lee" Concept of: USE WHAT WORKS! So while Tae Kwon Do is Korean and the kicking system is exceptional, TKD is weak in several areas of self defense, NKI will use Judo, Kung Fu slice blocking,  Shotokan foot sweeps,  Muy Thai knee and elbow strikes, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and submission holds, Boxing, or any thing from any system that is proven effective in self defense, Kickboxing, or tournament competition. COME AND TRY ONE OF OUR INTRO PROGRAMS TODAY!

Hey, Thanksgiving to God Should be Everyday!
Hey! Did you attend Church last Sunday? WHY NOT?    At least read your Bible and pray for our country, with big trouble brewing in the middle east and one world government looming, the anti-christ is not far behind! The world is caving in around us! Christ will return at ANY time! Did you know that 1/3 of the Bible is written on Prophesy and nothing else is neccessary to occur before the return of Christ to call the church home in the rapture? No one knows the day or the hour, but keep your eyes up and trust in GOD!

Do you want to know what is about to happen according to Bible Prophesy? Keep an eye on Damascus, Isaiah 17 predicts that it will be destroyed  in one day in the last days. Check out or watch his show Sunday nights at 10:00 pm on the Daystar network

                 THINK ABOUT IT!  God can't lie, The Bible is True!    IT'S COMING SOON!

Behold, I show you a mystery! We will not all die, but we will all be changed. From mortal to immortal in the twinkling of an eye. At the trump of god and the shout of the arch angel, Christ will descend into the clouds and shout "Come up here". The dead in Christ will rise first and then we that remain will be caught up in the clouds and forever more be with the lord. Comfort one another with these words!
