Striving 4 Excellence

character_development

DOUVRIS Martial Arts strongly believes in developing the character of our students along with the martial arts skills we teach them. The Striving for Excellence character development program was developed with over 30 years experience in teaching children respect, confidence and self-discipline. Striving for Excellence gives our members the opportunity to discuss, practice, and apply character development traits in their lives. The program includes a Karate Kids Workbook and a Karate Tykes Colouring book which children complete each month at home. The lessons outlined in the workbook are designed to accompany the “Word of the Month” which instructors discuss with students during each class.

The Word of the Month for December is

Courtesy

When parents sign their children up for martial arts classes very often they’re looking for a healthy activity that will also teach their kids respect. And karate certainly does that. But at Douvris Martial Arts we put a lot of emphasis on courtesy as well.

And no, they’re not the same thing.

As Sensei Cody Diesbourg explains, respect is something that is earned. Someone earns the respect of other people by treating them in a respectful manner. But courtesy, he says, “is something you give to everyone regardless of if you like them or not.”

Fitness Trial Offer

Our Total Body Training kickboxing fitness trial offer includes a 3 Class Pass for $19.95. This offer is available at 6 of our Ottawa training facilities.

Karate Trial Offer

Our Karate Trial Offer includes two classes and a new uniform for $19.95. It is valid for anyone aged 4 through adult. Our Karate Trial Offer is available at all of our Ottawa locations.
