Quality martial arts training geared toward children in Jupiter, FL. Master Sonia Mendez and her team have excellent programs suited to the skill levels for a broad range of youth. I can see the growth and confidence in my own kids, and they are always excited to get to class and work on their SKILLZ with Master Sonia and Cody. Definitely a quality investment in our kids! Thank you Symmetry Martial Arts!!

My 3 yr old LOVES it! Asks every day if he has karate! Master Sonia is great with kids & I feel like he's really learning (thought he might be too young)! I also did a self defense class with a group of moms & we were all thrilled with the class & plan on taking another

Inspiring, exciting and wonderful! Had the great pleasure of experiencing a self defense class with the Symmetry Team tonight! It made me feel strong and not afraid because I have a voice and power! It made me want to give my daughter every opportunity to learn how to protect herself and how to listen to her intuition. Great inspiration and teachers!

You will not meet a more dedicated staff! We drive 30 minutes each way, twice a week, and pass countless martial arts studios on the way...they are just that good!

Before signing my only child, an active, creative 3 year old up for taekwando, I checked out 3 martial arts schools in the area and Based my decision on the feeling I got as soon as I initially entered symmetry & was greeted by master Sonia personally. Her attention to my interest & availability for correspondence is outsanding. Mr. Cody's enthusiasm, playfulness, focus & dedication keep Ella engaged at every class. I'm proud to share that Ella just received her fourth belt at symmetry! I've watched Ella grow tremendous amounts in Her strength, agility, discipline and voice. Most importantly, Ella is having fun and gaining confidence and has created a small group of friends she looks forward to seeing each week.

They Symmetry Team is truly dedicated to their mission statement of providing the coolest experience for every kid, every class!

The instructors are constantly investing in their own knowledge and training to be able to teach each child in the way that's going to best foster their growth and development. They are passionate about what they do and who they're doing it with and for.

Joining Symmetry is much more than joining a martial arts school, its joining a family!

Symmetry Martial Arts holds a special place in our family's heart, as the owner (& instructors) nurture our children's talents, skill sets, and self esteem both on and off the mat. We couldn't be happier with our decision to send our daughter to Symmetry & for the opportunity for her to be exposed to such exemplary role models, who truly have a positive impact on all aspects of her life! We couldn't recommend this studio more!!

I highly recommend Symmetry to anyone looking for a great martial arts school. The instructors are fantastic and the kids learn skills and discipline while having a great time. Master Sonia and her team set a great example as they themselves never stop learning. The students were actually invited last year to watch several of the instructors earn new degrees on their belts, including Master Sonia as she earned her 5th degree black belt. That they were willing to show their vulnerability as well as their strength and resilience was a powerful learning experience to these kids. Symmetry as a whole- the instructors, students, and parents are family to us!

Ninja Life SKILLZ – GOALS

“Stick-to-it-iveness”

The ability to stay co

nsistent with something by motivating yourself even when you feel unmotivated!

While this might not be a real word, or a real definition; you get the idea!

With instant gratification, social media, and a growing number of distractions it is no wonder that kids have a hard time following through or reaching large goals that they set months ago. Even worse is the push back that parents get when they remind or force their kids to follow through!

Bruce Lee said it best: “Be (like) water my friend”

This has many interpretations but for our purposes, we will relate it to goal setting. He continues by saying that water can crash or it can flow. Pushing our kids and demanding they continue to reach their goals in an authoritative manner is like water crashing from a waterfall. Not only does this cause a lot of noise and distress but it can often have a negative effect from what you intended.

An interesting

life-hack for teaching kids how to follow through is to use goal setting. This way we are able to direct their flow in a calm and motivating manner. This will not only teach them how to follow through but motivate them to take initiative themselves! Here are a few ways we can set them up for success!

First, start small! Choose a small goal that can be accomplished TODAY, or within a day or so with minimal effort. For example, remember to make your bed right after you get up and before you do anything else! You can also do something simple like remembering to brush your teeth without needing a reminder. Accomplishing these small, simple, and immediate goals will help get the ball rolling and cr

eate momentum for success while releasing feel-good chemicals that will become addictive over time.

Once you have helped your ninja build a bit of momentum, now start working on slightly larger goals. Maybe something that will take a week or two to accomplish. Some easy examples could be, remembering your belt before you leave for karate class 1-2 weeks in a row. You can also add or subtract something from your diet consistently over this timeframe. It is important to note that when beginning this stage, you may find it helpful to offer some sort of reward for accomplishment. Talk with your ninja and find out what will motivate them!

Finally, we have worked our way up to setting a major goal! This should be something that requires growth in order to accomplish. Earning a perfect score trophy at their belt test, read a chapter a day, or performing a few random acts of kindness each day.
