To a loving Mom or Dad,
My name is Joseph Hurtsellers. I’m the head instructor and owner of Ohio Martial Arts Center. There are all kinds of reasons parents bring their children to me. Most of the time parents want their kids to have fun while learning something that is good for them.
But there are also more specific reasons parents bring their children in too…
TROUBLE FINDING SOMETHING THEY FEEL PASSIONATE ABOUT
…Some kids feel lost.
They might play video games, or watch TV. But finding something they are really excited about seems impossible.
I should know; as a kid I struggled at finding my passion too! But when I was enrolled in martial arts it changed my life. I always had potential but I just hadn’t found the right thing. When your child finds the thing that they love it’s a game changer! Grades improve, children begin to make friends, self confidence soars.
ISSUES WITH BULLIES
It’s a terrible thing when a child is picked on. Parents feel helpless.
Your child can lose confidence, lose interest in school, and worst of all, sometimes they even suffer from depression.
But when a child learns how to stand up for themselves it changes everything. The same kids that used to hide in their room suddenly begin making friends. They walk and speak differently. Even their grades improve.
Teaching a child how to stand up for themselves is a priceless gift that will last forever.
NOT ACHIEVING THEIR FULL POTENTIAL IN SCHOOL
When I was a teenager I did poorly in school. But shortly after I enrolled in martial arts everything changed! I started getting up earlier. I started doing my homework (without being told). Not only did martial arts teach me to focus; it did something even more important…
… martial arts improved my self esteem!
When your child starts to feel good about themselves everything improves — including how they do in school.
THE “SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME IN FRONT OF THE SCREEN” PROBLEM
Do you ever worry that your child will turn into a “couch potato”? Do they spend enormous amounts of time playing video games; but rarely want to go outside or move?
Getting kids away from the screen is a huge problem. But our classes are designed to be engaging and fun. Youre child will like our class as much as they like video games! Our class involves them, gives them a sense of progress, and gives them a positive challenge that they can achieve.
Your child who seems like a “couch potato” today; could be happier, healthier and more focused kid tomorrow. It’s what we do!
YOUR CHILD WANTS TO DO SOMETHING PHYSICAL - BUT THEY AREN’T THE “ORGANIZED SPORTS” TYPE
Does your child like to play; but they don’t like to participate in organized sports?
The problem with team sports is that all too often the kids who are already athletic get better; but the kids that aren’t as gifted get worse. Because a team sport depends on competition; these activities can really hurt the self esteem of some children.
The great thing about our classes is that children get to learn at their own pace. I’ve seen kids gain coordination, balance and skill, all because they were in an environment where those things were taught; and not just expected.
Who knows; maybe your child has the potential to be a good athlete? Maybe our school is just what your child needs to bring out their hidden potential.
ARE YOU SICK AND TIRED OF RUNNING YOUR KIDS AROUND? DO ACTIVITIES REQUIRE GIVING UP EVERY WEEKNIGHT AND EVEN WEEKENDS?
Kids sports usually require dozens of daily practices and numerous competitions. These events can even take up the entire weekend! Traveling to and from events doesn't only cost time; these events can end up costing a lot of money!
We give our families the gift of TIME (not to mention saving them money!) Our kids attend our classes two times a week.
Not only do we save both money and time, kids also LOVE our classes! They will have a blast, and leave every session with a smile on their face. You won't be begging them to get in the car, instead they will be reminding you of when it's martial arts day!
Best of all, in just two classes a week we produce benefits that far exceed organized sports! Kids learn leadership, character development, and discover their own self confidence. These are the very skills that are needed to succeed everywhere, but are seldom taught anywhere.
Save time AND give your son or daughter MORE. Make martial arts with us a part of your child’s education.
Are we right for you?
These are just a few of the many reasons parents bring their kids to us. I’m not sure of your reasons, but there is one thing I am sure of —our dojo can help your child.
We hear stories of our student’s successes day in and day out.
When we see a young persons life improve it reminds us of why we love what we do. It’s those hundreds of success stories, year after year, that have kept us on the mats for over 30 years.
Who knows, maybe your child will be our next success story?

Thanks for your attention; I can't meet your family in person
