Does your teen need
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
Raising a teenager requires persistence & patience
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
your teen will grow with every class!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
Shorin Ryu Minnesota has created a karate family like non other. Sensei Dieter Von Der Marwitz and Elizabeth Von Der Marwitz are very caring trainers. My son has been working at this Dojo for 6 years. He has learned so much more than Katas, Kumite and Kobudo at the highest professional level, He has learned self perseverance, self discipline and the value of staying physically fit. These are life long values. We feel so fortunate to be a part of Shorin Ryu Minnesota!
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.
This dojo is owned and operated by two of the most positive people that I have ever met. Sensais Deiter and Elizabeth provide a fun, welcoming, and supportive environment for all levels to learn and grow. Their enthusiasm for Karate is contagious. The dojo also provides many opportunities every week for my husband and boys to enjoy quality time together - whether learning Kata or more recently, grappling and Kobudo (traditional weapons training)!
