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!

Routines – Shifting Into A New Normal

Routines – Shifting Into A New Normal

The closures of schools and businesses are widespread and have led to major disruptions in the daily routines of families. Children are trying to adjust to doing school at home and parents are now trying to balance their new work from home life with their role as teacher to their children. To cope, it’s important for families to implement daily routines that incorporate school and work along with family time and hobbies.

Humans are creatures of habit and when our everyday lives are disturbed, we become anxious. For children, this anxiety often leads to behavior problems which can create power struggles and difficulty completing schoolwork. To help ease these challenges, implementing routines will create a better balance and help parents manage expectations and stick to them. By doing this, children will have a greater sense of security and will be more likely to cooperate.

Since we are all faced with uncharted territory, it can be stressful to even think about implementing a new routine. But if we use this time as an opportunity for growth, executing a new routine will be easier. For children, this time can help them learn more self-discipline and self-control. With a consistent daily routine and consistent daily expectations in place, children can also begin to adopt these new constructive habits, which are life skills much needed today.

It’s important to remember, however, that routines should have time scheduled for regular breaks. When children are at school, they are not doing academic work for 7 hours straight. They have time for recess, lunch, change of classes, physical education, music, art, etc. There is also a time that the school day ends so it’s important to make sure this time is established as well. By doing this, children learn to look forward to things and are more likely to adhere to the routines put in place.

The class routine of the Symmetry Martial Arts SKILLZ program was developed with this information in mind. The sequence of class each day is the same: warm-up, mat chat, drills, testing, cool-down, games. This procedure helps children know what to expect each class and gives them something fun to look forward to. A routine created in this way helps boosts creativity and learning.

The uncertainty of when things will go back to “normal” is stressful. Implementing new routines may seem difficult at first but will ultimately help everyone feel more at ease. As this is done, we must be patient with each other and ourselves. Navigating through each day, now, is a new experience for everyone and we all deserve grace. Focusing on the new and improved behaviors that will come out of this experience will help us all keep moving forward.
