Youth Christmas Party this Saturday!!December 11, 2018
Hey FC Kids and Parents,
This year’s Kids FightClub Christmas party will be held on Saturday, December 15th. It’s been a great year of SYSTEMA training for the youth program – filled with lots of learning and growth. It’s time to celebrate and reflect on our accomplishments! I will have juice, cookies, and treats.
Hope to see everyone there,
Self-Control and Good Decision Making
Self-control refers to the training that one gives one’s self to accomplish a certain task or to adopt a particular pattern of behavior, even though one is unfocused or would rather be doing something else. For example, when your child has learned to listen to mom and dad, pay attention in class while listening to the teacher instead of talking to his friend next to him, he has demonstrated the ability to self-control… while making the good decision to do so.
At FightClub, as both parent and instructor, I work on this skill set every single day. I give the kids freedom each class to explore and be creative with Systema training, but I will walk around and reinforce self-control and good decision-making skills with each student. Patience is a big virtue with this one. Given the ever-increasing class sizes of our public schools, it is imperative that kids develop good self-control and good decision-making skills. This will not happen on its own you need to teach, model and practice the behaviors to get good at it. Systema training at FightClub incorporates this each and every class! Over the holidays this year try it with your kids at home. Let me know how it goes 🙂
