I don’t blame you. You’re thinking, “come on …how
can karate and the martial arts teach wholesome values - and, success
skills?” Well, I’m here to tell you, in more ways than
you can begin to imagine.
My name is Dr. Gary Wong. I’m the owner of one of the most
successful martial art programs in the Bay Area. My school is Wong’s
Ji Do Kwan in Fremont, California.
For the past 25 years , I’ve been nurturing children like
yours with character building tools found only in the martial arts.
No other sport can even come close. In the next few pages, I’m
going to tell you how you and your child can sample all of this,
and more. FREE OF CHARGE!!
Watch as your child increases in confidence, self
esteem and learns to be empowered to be the best person he or she
can become. You can’t believe how your child will thirst and
search for a greater knowledge and watch as they achieve.....
• Greater academic achievement.
Greater self respect and self discipline.
Increased strength in the mind, body
And all of it comes while learning how to “block, punch and
The greatest gift you can give your child is to have the tools to
deal with their own doubts and fears.
Look at it this way. Your child’s first and biggest challenge
comes not from “fighting for their rights on the street,”
or “beating up the neighborhood bully.” It comes, instead,
from battling the internal struggle.
Your child’s own doubts and fears:
• “I’m not as athletic
• “I’m not as smart as Amy”
• “I don’t understand what my teacher is saying.”
• “I wish I was as [strong, pretty, tall] as Patty.”
• “Why does Ronnie keep giving me a bad time?”
• “Why can’t I be as popular as Kim?”
The question is, how do you get your child to fight these demons?
You know the problem. Your child has a tough time even telling you
he or she’s haunted by them. Never mind how they might conquer
Well, the great news is, I have a proven solution. A program
that has already worked for many children. A series of lessons
your child can learn easier than you think.
I call it, “Breaking Out.” Let me tell you it’s
To repeat, The Martial Arts are less about your child learning
to fight others, and more about fighting…himself or herself.
Whatever their innermost fears are....... Conquer them, and your
child unleashes within themself a powerful, unstoppable force.
A force that gives them the strength to kick down the doors of their
own self doubts, A force that opens your child to the exalting power
In other words, when your child uses the discipline of Karate
to conquer their own fears, they have the power to transfer
that discipline to all other areas of their life. I know of no other
sport that does this better than Karate. (I should know. Remember,
I’ve been teaching it for 25 years.)
Now, you may be asking, how does all this “values” stuff
work? And why does Karate manage to do a better job teaching it?
Again, more than any other sport, Karate gives your child the chance
to explore their own innate powers. They’ll marvel (as you
will) as they increase in strength, flexibility, endurance, balance,
and harmony. Yet this is only the beginning.
The development of physical skill act as a foundation for something
much more important: the development of their value skills, mental
and spiritual. This encompasses a strong union of the mind, body
Your child finds the courage to move outside of their comfort zone.
They take on more difficult Karate moves and skills. They are no
longer afraid of being afraid.
They will learn that maximum effort in equals great pride in one’s
self out. They learn to blame no one, but take on their own responsibility
for their actions. They begin to see their life as a constant, never-ending
journey of life-giving improvement.
In short, your child will begin to control their own destiny.
Your child finds joy in improving their physical stamina. They can
walk farther, run longer, practice skills until they get them right.
In turn, they learn not to give up. They see things through. With
the help of our teachers, your child strives harder and longer to
reach their goals. Even if they fail they learn to persevere. Your
child won’t let self doubt get in the way of finding ultimate
As a man once said, “Where performance is measured, performance
improves.” Yet, your child has to first accept where they
stand now. That means measuring current strengths. Above all, they
learn that to succeed, they can’t fool anyone, especially
This results in a keener focus. They learn to make eye contact with
their teacher (and not just in Karate.) They pay greater attention
to what each teacher says. They know and accept where they stand.
These are just three of the powerful, energizing values your child
will get from the “Breaking Out” program. In short,
you can look forward to your child developing:
• Powerful Self Control:
Your child will refuse to give in to negative peer pressure. They’ll
have deeper respect for rules.
Improved Focus: Your
child will learn what’s needed, along with the skill to
“zero in” on critical tasks at hand. Normal, yet time-wasting,
childhood distractions won’t get in the way.
Fearless Self Confidence: Watch as your child
finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.
ROLE-MODEL INSTRUCTORS: As you might guess, all of this couldn’t have happened
unless I had the very best teachers. To make sure I have the very
best, each of them have years of experience in my system and have
been thoroughly trained in teaching skills. Today, they are all
martial arts experts - advanced Black Belts, in fact. Many have
won awards for their teaching and physical skills. Still, you’re
wondering if this will work for your child. I understand.
let me tell you an old martial arts story that illustrates our perspective
was a typical day unlike any other day in urban America. The bus
was comparatively empty except for a few housewives with their kids
in tow, some old folks going shopping. I watched as we drove by
the buildings as they just seemed to blend in with the surroundings.
one stop the doors opened and in an instant the quiet ordinary day
was transformed by a loud belligerent man yelling and cursing. This
man was disheveled and obviously drunk and began ranting and screaming.
He was loud and obnoxious and began to push people out the way.
He pushed a woman that was carrying groceries and knocked her down
to the floor. Luckily she was unharmed. Some people helped her to
her feet and then hastily moved to the other side of the bus away
from this crazed man. This upset the man even more and he began
to kick and swing punches at the people who were trying to move
to safety. This man was standing in the middle of the bus and everyone
was in fear and cowered and would not look him in the eye. He began
to yell out even more trying to evoke a fight.
stood up. I was young and tough and had several years of martial
training behind me. I felt that the people on this bus are in danger
and if I didn’t do something about this somebody would get
hurt. I was going to teach this guy a lesson. As I stood, the drunken
man was yelling that he was going to teach me a lesson. I readied
myself and the drunken man began to plan a run at me.
then another voice spoke up. It was as if time had stopped and everyone
was frozen in their tracks unable to move and the only thing that
any of us could do was to listen. The drunken man and I had turned
to see an older man sitting there calm and relaxed. He looked right
at the drunken man and with a slight gesture of his hand and a nod
of his head he asked the drunken man to come and talk.
drunken man walked toward the old man sitting there and stopped
at his feet. He bellowed out "Why the hell should I talk to
you?" The old man looked into the man’s eyes, smiled
and asked “What have you been drinking?” "Wine,
that’s what I’ve been drinking" the laborer bellowed
back, "and it’s none of your business!"
delightful," the old man said, “You see, I love wine
too.” Every night my wife and I take it out into the garden,
and we sit on an old wooden bench. We watch the sun go down, and
we look to see how our apple tree is doing. My great-grandfather
planted that tree, and we worry about whether it will recover from
the draught we had the last few years. Our tree has done better
than I expected, though, especially when you consider the poor quality
of the soil. It is so gratifying to watch when we take our wine
and go out to enjoy the evening even when it rains!"
was a calmness in the old man’s voice that just seemed to
soothe the spirit of this once enraged man. As he followed the old
man’s conversation, the drunk’s face began to soften.
His fists slowly unclenched.
"I love apples too...." as his voice trembled. "Yes,"
said the old man, smiling, "and I’m sure you have a wonderful
wife." "No," replied the man. "My wife died."
As his head dropped down. The big man began to sob. "My wife
is gone, I don’t have a home and I got no job. I’m so
embarrassed of myself." Tears rolled down his cheeks; a spasm
of despair rippled through his body.
there dumbfounded, I wanted to beat this drunken man down for something
that I didn’t understand. I felt ashamed of myself and felt
worse than what this man was going through.
the bus arrived at my stop and the doors opened, I heard the old
man say "That is a difficult predicament, indeed. Sit down
here and tell me about it."
I turned my head for one last look. The disheveled man was sprawled
on the seat, his head in the old man’s lap. The old man was
softly stroking the filthy, matted hair.
As the bus pulled away, I sat down on a bench. What I had wanted
to do with muscle had been accomplished with kind words. I had just
witnessed true martial arts in combat, and the essence of it was
inner peace. I would have to practice the art from an entirely new
perspective. It would be a long time before I could resolve conflict
in this manner.
great martial artist once said: Know
the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never
be in peril. When you are ignorant of the enemy but know yourself,
your chances of winning and losing are equal. If ignorant both of
your enemy and of yourself, you are certain in every battle to be
in peril. For to win a hundred victories in one hundred battles
is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is
the highest skill.
is the true meaning of the martial arts.
what’s this have to do with your child?
Ask Yourself, “What did the old man have that the young man
didn’t?” The old man had confidence in himself. He’s
at peace with who he is. He knew to learn more about the drunken
man so to develop a strategy to control the situation. There was
no need to resort to violence. He subdued the enemy without even
fighting. That is the highest skill.
I still know what you’re thinking: How can I know for sure
the “Breaking Out” program will work for my child? Will
learning to ‘block, punch and kick’ really work ? I’ve
made it very easy for you to find out - for your child……….
