Sensei Cub, Uncle Jim Mayer,s of Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer band also known as Uncle Jim mayer,s. Jim's Anti-Bullying workshop & 13 yr old Carter Isaac has come together to compliment the Karate Kids Programs.Through success principles based on the development of a baby to toddler and beyond, Uncle Jim illustrates how each of us is empowered today if we only behave like a baby trying to walk. When we fall, we get up. When we don't know, we ask. Through simple and understandable examples, and engaging music, Jim brings the real world home to real students who begin to understand that their teachers are real too, that we all have options and we all have the power of choice.One goal of our program is to support and empower young people as they encounter the challenges of growing up in today's world.The emotional ,spiritual,and physical health benefits of karate are well-documented(please refer to our links page).We assist with the development of focused attention.disciplines.respect for peers ,teachers and elders and belief in one's own ability to succeed.
