Chang's is a phenomenal program that teaches your kids respect, self worth, hard work, fitness, and dedication at the age of 3 and up. My boys love it and I noticed a change in their behavior at home too. Thank you Chang's!

Can't say enough good things about Chang's (CMA). We have been a part of the CMA family since 2014. My son has been taking TKD and their instructor Mr. David is amazing with the kids. You can tell all the kids have a great time. We also held a birthday party at CMA for my son. Mr. David hosted and led all the activities, and truly made my son feel like the star and champion on his special day (got to break a special board and cut the birthday cake with a sword!). CMA offers a great summer camp so we will plan on registering again this year.

I can't say enough great things about Chang's! My daughter started in April, 2017 and has worked her way up to an Orange Belt, plus just started a sparring class and she LOVES it. At her age, we have tried soccer, gymnastics, swimming and baseball - yes she loves them all for about a month but then loses interest and wants to move on to the next thing. With the great instructors at Chang's (especially Mr. David!!), and extra activities they often plan (Back-To-School party, Parents Night Out, Anti-Bullying class, etc.), my daughter honestly cannot wait for the next thing. She is also enrolled at their After-School program - I was concerned that going everyday could be a bit much and she would get burned out, but if anything, she is enjoying it more and more!
Kudos to Chang's for maintaining the interest level of a very outgoing 7-year-old and helping to teach her the art of patience and respect! You guys are the best!! :-)

Nothing but great things to say about this place. The instructors are awesome! I've seen the change in my daughter. She use to be very timid and shy, she has gained confidence and has learned to focus.

Health-and-Wellness-Goal-Setting-In-2022

“Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock! Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring! Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun, now the jingle hop has begun!” ~ Jingle Bell Rock, by Bobby Helms.

Many of our SKILLZ Strong Ninjas and Proud Ninja Parents are breaking out into their best “Jingle Bell Rock” as the promise of a Ninja-tastic New Year knocks at the door! As 2021 draws to a close, the dawn of the New Year comes with fresh inspiration, motivation and high hopes for conquering great things in 2022!

Whether your goals for the New Year are physical, intellectual, emotional and/or social, there is truly something special and exciting about the blank canvas of the next 365 days before us, all about to be filled in with the colorful, precious moments of living and loving to the fullest!

As we consider how our fresh canvas will look in the New Year, there is no denying the importance and power of caring for the mind, body and spirit so it can thrive! In the constant flow of the daily missions before us, movement is central in our everyday living. Further, purposeful movement has an undeniable impact on the whole being of not just our children but us as grown-ups too! From our quality of sleep and overall mood, to energy level and complete physical health, daily intentional movement is vital to supporting our whole selves.

But how can we as Proud Ninja Parents best support the health and wellness goals of our children in the New Year? Consider these tips to keep everyone in your family rockin’ through 2022:

  1. Be the role model your child needs you to be. Physical health and wellness starts at home Proud Ninja Parents! Each and every day, our children are watching and learning from us about how to take care of themselves physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially so they can formulate their own unique self-care regimen. Taking an active and present posture in your child’s health and wellness goals means taking a look first at your own patterns of health and wellness to see if what you are currently practicing is what you want to continue preaching.
    • If there is something in your overall health and wellness upon self-reflection you wish to change, take it one step at a time! Narrowing down your goals to focusing on one healthy aspect of improvement at a time will go a long way towards creating consistent habits of success. If this is something that you need help and support in, please connect with one of our team members.
    • As you begin to model your own practice of self-reflection and self-improvement in your health and wellness journey, talk with your child about what goals they too wish to work on! Consider creating a visual aid, like an accountability chart to help them along their journey. Rewards like choosing the next game for family game night after picking a healthy snack consistently for 5 days straight before bedtime will go a long way to help keep your child motivated in their pursuit of creating healthy habits in their own health and wellness walk! Need an accountability chart inspiration? Check this one out on Amazon: Magnetic Multiple Behavior Responsibility Schedule
    • Food for thought: How can you too use a version of the accountability chart above with rewards at certain check-in points to keep you motivated in your 2022 health and wellness goals?
  2. Keep it real and keep it simple! Incorporating intentional movement at home should never be a burden but rather a great opportunity for connection with your child! Consider introducing your SKILLZ Strong Ninja to a band you loved rockin’ out to when you were their age. Turn on an old favorite song and have a blast dancing around the whole kitchen as you prepare a delicious meal together. Allow your inner child to have fun with your kiddo!
    • Another great movement connection can be through something like Cosmic Kids Yoga found on YouTube: Cosmic Kids Yoga ! Have your child select a special theme from the provided playlist that they can immerse their whole mind, body and spirit in alongside you as you both proactively practice the art of physical, mental and emotional exercise together.
  3. Balance rest and relaxation with the adventures of everyday life! The go-go-go of life can truly sneak up on us and take hold if we are not mindful and careful of all the happenings going on in any given week. Making supportive decisions that take into due consideration the overall health and wellbeing of the family is vital to everyone’s success.
    • Taking the opportunity to schedule in downtime throughout the week, to reconnect, refocus and regroup is important. Maybe this looks like a bedtime story with your child every night or dinner all together on Friday nights followed by a special family movie. Whatever practice resonates most with your family to honor space and time together, to rest your mind, body and spirit throughout the week is the way to go! Remember, we cannot give on an empty cup.

It goes without saying that we are so excited for a fantastic, fun filled New Year! Our team of childhood development experts is here and ready to serve your family, to help support you all in your goals for 2022! If you find yourself in need of some specific tips to help nurture and guide your child in their aspirations for the New Year, please reach out to connect with one of our Pediatric Ninja Specialists. It takes a village to raise a child and we are so honored and blessed to be rockin’ alongside you all every step of the way!
