A Few Words
I’m Dieter Von der Marwitz, Owner / Head Instructor here at Shorin Ryu Minnesota.
As a martial arts instructor with extensive experience training kids, there is nothing better than seeing them grow firsthand.
But more important than the martial arts skills they learn… is the personal skills they develop and carry for life.
Because martial arts is so much more than just kicking and punching, and getting the next colorful belt.
It’s about developing confidence, discipline, character, focus and respect.
With every class we teach, your kids are growing in mind, body and character.
That’s because martial arts provides instant positive feedback. Through learning to focus on the core moves, they develop discipline and respect. They can instantly see and feel a difference, making them destined to build confidence, self-awareness and self-respect.
And of course it’s a ton of FUN!
That’s why I love teaching martial arts to kids in this community, and why I know your kids are going to LOVE training.
So please have a look below to find out exactly how your kids can benefit from our fun martial arts classes.
Does Your Child Have
They are great kids but they just don’t listen, often being told to do something a hundred times before they actually do anything.
They’re bright and intelligent, yet have trouble paying attention at home, in school or in any important situation, even being classified as an “ADD” or “ADHD” child.
They are simply shy and lack the confidence and self-esteem needed to live up to their full potential.
The Difficulties of Raising Children Are Near Endless
There really is a safe, natural and extremely effective way to take charge and positively impact every aspect of your child’s life. It doesn’t take medicine, therapy, harsh actions, or cajoling your kids to change their behavior. Instead, it is teaching your kids self-discipline, hard work, confidence, and respect. This done in a way that empowers them while also teaching them humility, and promoting health and fitness… all at the same time.
Sounds like a wonder cure doesn’t it?
But there really is something that does all that. And that’s the power of martial arts classes.
your child will grow with every class!
Children are like sponges. They absorb things quickly and easily – far more easily than we do as adults. In fact, parents can sometimes see a difference in their kids after just one martial arts class. Each additional class they attend increases their knowledge and growth.
Not only are they getting healthier as they learn martial arts, they’re also learning the value of self-discipline and respect. When you enroll your child in a martial arts class, you’re giving them much more than the physical skills we teach. You’re giving them the opportunity to thrive.
Sensei Deiter is nothing short of amazing! He took my son younger than he usually takes them when he saw his potential and has worked him hard through his comedic approach for 3 years. He is very ethical in belt advancement, always reminding the kids that they need to earn it and it's beautiful to see them beam when they do! And the South African accent is the icing! � Also, I hope my son grows up to be like Oliver.
Shorin Ryu is a wonderful dojo! There is an incredible sense of community here - even as a parent I feel completely welcomed. Sensei uses positive reinforcement - I love seeing my kids' confidence level soar with the feedback! It's also open daily during the week, making it easy to get fit classes into our schedule.
Shorin Rhu is a quality Dojo. From a traditional Japanese Okinawan Karate Dojo, basic to advanced karate is modeled and taught mentally and physically. Many pupils from the St. Anthony and Woodbury Dojo have qualified for the Jr. Olympics as a result of their Shorin Rhu training. This has built confidence in our child that extends beyond karate. The year round conditioning provided by Shorin Rhu has been instrumental in our child's readiness for other sports and outdoor activities.
