Millbury martial arts has significantly impacted my life for more then 20 years. As a child I was shy and had low self esteem. Through the training at Millbury martial arts, I became a strong self confident person who is able to pursue my dream of a graduate degree.

This school offers a wide range of martial arts for children and adults taught by instructors who are dedicated to their art and who are continually expanding their teaching methods and personal skill levels. They have a depth of knowledge and are open to sharing. The atmosphere is supportive and students are respectful and helpful of each other regardless of skill level or age. You compete only with yourself!

I have been going to the school since 2009. Words can't describe the changes that I have seen in my self, not only physically but mentally. Thank you to everyone at life skill because it's just as much the people that go there that makes it great as it is the classes that are taught.

It has been said that the true science of martial arts means practicing them in such a way that they will be useful at anytime, and to teach them in a way that they will be useful in all things. I have found this at Life Skills Martial Arts. The life skills learned are invaluable in becoming a true martial artist not just another fighter who practices martial arts.

Words can't describe this school. The instructors are knowledgable in everything they do. Master Tabor makes you feel like you belong. Not to mention the instructors Mr. Keenan, Mr. Moy and Mr. Morin. I have learned so much in each class I trained in, kungfu, taiji and self defense. The school has so much pride and you can just tell from the atmosphere and how the school looks. The koi pond and the garden you can train in just makes you in awe and feel good about yourself! This is awesome place to train. My only disappointment is that I never found the school earlier. Real authentic Taiji, kung-fu and self-defense!!!!

Its been many years since i attended classes here. My experience i am happy to say, was life changing. I have learned so much more than self defense and discipline from this school. Being a part of this family gave me the strength to overcome many obstacles in life. The instructors have so much to offer and they give endless support. I made some amazing friends here too. Even though it has been such a long time since my last trip to the school, i find my thoughts always returning to it. It has been a very big part in my life. I am very grateful for my time, and am planning on coming back with my two children once they are old enough to take lessons!

Our children started the program first back in July and my wife and I subsequently began taking classes in late August....what a positive impact it has had on our health and well-being! Our son and daughter are learning far more than a martial art rich in history and traditions... they are learning skills that they use each and every day. My wife and I have become healthier in mind, body, and spirit. The camaraderie with our fellow students is a bond that is as strong as community and those relationships transcend the studio.
The benefits in health and happiness alone are worth giving Life Skills Martial Arts a try.

Our 4 year old has been attending for 9 months now and he has a blast! What we love the most is the positive atmosphere. There is not a competition with anyone but yourself. Parents cheer on each other’s children and the students of the class encourage and support one another. It is a beautiful thing and we are so happy our son is a part of it! The instructors are very supportive and the life skills that they teach are fantastic. Our son has gained more confidence and has so much fun. We are very happy we chose Life Skills Martial Arts for our son and highly recommend it!

Going to Life Skills Martial Arts will always be one of the best decisions i ever made. It has helped me to not only learn how to defend myself and my family if it came down to that but it has helped me to go way outside my comfort level to do things i never thought in a million years i would do. I have severe social anxiety and usually never liked being in large groups, being a leader, or even not taking my self seriously when i screwed something up. But when i go to class, i feel like i am with family and i can do all those things without any anxiety. well maybe a little :).

One of the best decisions for my son was to sign him up here. He's become healthier, gained more confidence, learned respect and self esteem. This was originally a Christmas present and now my 10 year old says he's "committed to becoming a black belt" and would like this again for Christmas instead of a bunch of"stuff". After a year (actually within a month), I realized the monthly cost isn't just for kung fu training. It's truly training him"life skills" that he can use in every aspect of life for a lifetime and that is priceless.

OUR TOP 5 HASSLE-FREE HOMEWORK HACKS

Let’s face it, kids receive homework assignments starting in kindergarten these days and after a long day at school (and your long day at work), the last thing anyone wants is a homework battle. Many parents dread their kids’ school homework as much, if not more than their kids do. It’s not easy to squeeze homework into schedules packed tight with after-school activities, family and work responsibilities, dinner and still get the kids to bed on time.

Establishing homework routines as soon as your child begins school will help him or her develop the skills necessary to keep up with these important routines throughout high school and college. Here are some effective tips for a hassle-free and productive homework routine.

OUR TOP 5 HASSLE-FREE HOMEWORK HACKS

1.  Develop a routine.

Find an after school routine that works for you and stick with it! The key to having hassle-free after school time is having a regular routine, for example:

1. Putting shoes, backpacks, and lunch supplies away.

2. Placing homework and papers at their spot on the table where you do homework.

3. Sit down for snack and start on homework.

4. Once homework is completed, prepare backpack for the next morning.

5. Have fun – outside play, after school activities, board games, etc.

1. It’s very important to make it a routine to tackle homework before the afternoon slips into late evening and leaves you with tired, cranky kids. If you wait to do it later, it’s easy for it to get lost in the shuffle of after-school activities, outside play, etc. and then ends up interfering with bedtime. Having it done and out of the way frees up the evening for family time, avoids meltdowns, and helps keep everyone on schedule. Once you fine-tune your routine, stick to it! Keep things the same and consistent so your children understand what’s expected!

2.  Provide a healthy snack or meal.
Growing bodies and brains need fuel! It’s difficult for kids to do their best when they are hungry or filled with sugary, processed snacks. Make sure your child has a satisfying, healthy afternoon snack. You can involve your child and create a list of his/her favorite healthy snacks to keep on hand such as apple slices, cheese and crackers, grapes, or carrots and ranch dip.

3.  Reduce distractions.

Televisions, iPads, texting, talking adults… all these are great at the right time, just not during homework.  Electronics can interrupt and prolong the homework process. Kids benefit from learning the difference between when it’s time to work and when it’s time to play.

4.  Set clear goals and expectations.

Before beginning homework, review what needs to be accomplished with your child and prioritize tasks; make sure he is aware of exactly what is expected. Also, be sure that he understands the consequences of homework assignments not being completed and be sure he understands the reward / incentive of completing homework the right way. When homework gets completed, lots of great things get to happen —time to play with friends, play a board game, watching a movie, extracurricular activities like Martial Arts classes and soccer games and, not to mention, the life long benefits, because the habits they develop as young students will contribute to their success throughout their school careers.

5.  Review Time.

Because homework is a student’s chance to review what was learned in class, it is important kids understand their homework. Give your child a chance to do their homework on their own and after review it together. That gives you a chance to talk about what your child is learning and make sure he “gets” it before he gets behind. If there is anything your child misses, review and talk about it.

I hope that these tips help you on the right track for a successful school year.
