    How To Use Self-Distancing For Self-Improvement

    Will anything go back to the way it was before? Grocery stores may change, banks may never be the same. But one thing is for sure, SKC will remain just as dedicated to your family now and after as we were before. Even though situations beyond our control mean that you see us through a screen now, our instructors and staff are here for you whether it be for the same reasons you started classes, or for facing new challenges that have come up. Things will eventually return to normal, even if it’s a new normal. And SKC’s mat classes will eventually be allowed to resume. But in the meantime, we’re still going strong . We’re still providing opportunities ....

  • Beware The Backslide

    Beware The Backslide

    Routine? What’s that? If your routine hasn’t had to change in the past few weeks, you are part of a select group of people. Inarguably, one of the largest group of people whose routine has been affected is our children. How do we keep a sense of normalcy for our children during this time? We keep as much of their normal routine in place as possible. Keeping bed times implemented will help not only your child but also you. Family dinner times can still be kept up and is a great time to talk to your child about how they’re feeling right now. A great way to help your child not only stay connected to their peers but also positive influences like their ....

  • See Your Opportunities, To Seize Your Opportunities

    “Good things come to those who wait,” is an age-old adage people hear. However, this quote is completely misleading and inaccurately used, because it is unfinished. The full quote reads: “ Good things come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.” And I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but usually only those who hustle , tend to take all of those “ good things ”. Many of us have been misled by this notion that being patient is enough, but it isn’t. Opportunities are everywhere, and the fruits of these opportunities are rarely taken by patient people. They are taken by those who will pounce at every ....

    Have You Noticed This Benefit of SKC?

    Hey guys, I wanted to take a second to reach out to you all and thank you for all of your support during this time. Many businesses that provide a service to their community have had to face a number of challenges lately to continue to stay connected and present for their members. Luckily for SKC, even though we have faced some of the same challenges, we’re more than a business, we’re a family. And this crazy ride has been made easier through your continued support. We speak to our students either directly or through our practice about self-discipline, respect, focus and confidence. But, I want to talk to you about a benefit of martial arts that we teach more ....

  • The Healthy Struggle for Kids

    A popular book, The Entitlement Cure: Finding Success at Work and in Relationships in a Shortcut World, aptly describes how people who have an aversion to any form of challenge, struggle, or effort inadvertently obstruct necessary growth in their lives. Honestly, it is hard to navigate a relationship with a person who feels and acts entitled. And it all starts during childhood; it is so important not to coddle and overly protect kids from failure. As long as they have a safe place to make mistakes, kids need to fail. They need the opportunity to learn from their errors, pick themselves up, then move toward a positive direction so that they will know what to do to succeed in ....

  • Just Be Quiet When You've had Enough

    "This is it. I have had it!" Do these words sound familiar? Do you have days, like mine, when you feel like you have had enough? Unfortunately, sometimes we just can't help but feel overwhelmed, discouraged, or simply exhausted. You know your child needs you, but you feel that no matter what you do or say, the day just keeps going deep into a black, frustrating hole. I know what it is like to be at your wit’s end because I am a mom too. Parents who have enrolled their children at Seigler’s Karate Center (SKC) know that when their kids train with us, they get a break. Moms and Dads carve out a few precious minutes (or hours) of quiet time to ....
