Does your teen need
They make hasty, poorly-considered decisions and need to have better judgment.
They’re being bullied at school – or they’re the one doing the bullying. They don’t get enough exercise or need to lose weight.
They have low self-esteem and seem to be down all the time. They give up when things get difficult and fail to meet their goals.
Raising a teenager requires persistence & patience
It can test your sanity even at the best of times. Yet, you want the best for your teenager. You want them to have the tools they need to succeed now and later in life – and you’d like that to happen without having to pull out all your hair in the process. Getting them to do anything you want them to do can feel utterly impossible, and you’re not sure where to start.
Studying martial arts helps kids learn how to overcome their problems and learn important lessons – the kind of lessons that will follow them to your home, to the classroom, and for the rest of their lives.
your teen will grow with every class!
Teenagers who study martial arts learn the benefits of self-control and discipline with every lesson. Our classes emphasize core values like discipline, respect, and persistence. Students learn that the way they treat others – in and out of the dojo – reflects on them as people and affects their ability to achieve their goals.
Incredible experience with Popkin-Brogna. My kids have never been more enthusiastic about anything. They love going to class, it's never the typical parent struggle we've often had attending other activities. Amazing experience, and I look forward to seeing them grow! Thank you!
My son has been going to the dojo for about 7 months. We’ve had great experiences in class, Parent class, outings, and monthly events. The instructors are so positive and affirming. They truly care about the kids. The photos, compliments in class, videos, support group, weekly live FB wisdom for parents and most of all we just received the sweetest voice message this week as my son was recovering from the flu. His face lit up when he heard that everyone is wishing him well and missing him. Thank you for making such a positive influence on our lives!
Our son has been apart of the dojo for a little over a year and the changes we’ve seen in him are amazing. Beyond the martial arts training, which had helped him physically, he has learned discipline, patience, hard work, dedication, kindness and understanding. Everyone at the dojo is family. They are there for you no matter what and truly care about all the children (even their siblings who too young to be members now). We just had our son’s birthday party there and it was beyond outstanding! All the kids had a great time and even the parents got involved for a game of dodge ball! They even provide invitations, decorations and goodie bags! All we had to bring was the cake! The smile on our son’s face throughout the party said it all! We couldn’t have asked for anything more. We are truly grateful for being apart of this family and wouldn’t give it up for anything. So if you’re looking for a place for your children to have a great time learning martial arts and valuable life lessons Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center is definitely the place to go!
From the moment we entered the dojo for the first time, we were greeted as family. My girls have learned so much, both on the mat and off. They have been taught technique, strength training, and personal goals and values. There have been lessons in discipline which extend to home and school. I couldn't be happier with all of the senseis and sempais. The Senseis encourage the parents to speak to them about any and all issues your child may be having and they work with them to help in any way they can. They follow through on their lessons. They even contacted me when my child was sick to see how she was doing! They certainly care about their students!
We love this Dojo. My son has shown tremendous progress in self discipline, confidence and stamina. He attends all the special events for kids, he has made friends and has great respect for all the instructors. There are times that we address issues at home and at school and work through them with support from the staff. They are of the growth mindset approach and very child centered. I’ve witnessed over the past 9 months the PBJJC consistently keep it interesting and exciting for all. Give it a try you will not be disappointed!!
My 4 year old daughter started at the dojo less than a month ago. I never expected to see results so quickly! From the second we walked in, my shy and anxious daughter was chatting up a storm with Sensei Steve and Sempai Stephanie. She sat and observed the other children the first day and by the second she jumped right in. I have never seen my daughter so excited about an activity; she asks to go every day, even on the weekends. This has actually brought tears to my eyes! As a social worker who specializes in young children, I have been extremely impressed with all of the staff. My daughter is learning skills such as impulse control, having a higher self esteem, discipline, social skills and so much more. Between the pictures, the videos and the educational fb lives the PPJJC community shares, I am proud to be a member of the family.
