One of the most fascinating things that has happened over the years but especially the last few months at LKC is how fast our students are making new friends! Something magical happens when a new student joins the school and instantly they are connected with other students and a bond is created.
What we notice is that with the increased socialization, kids are happier, more confident and look forward to attending their classes even in the summer heat and even when they could be outside, at the pool or home playing video games. Why? Because they get to see their friends!
This concept is incredibly important as we know that during this past year or so, many were isolated and unable to see their friends on a regular basis. At LKC, the even better part of this is that often kids meet kids who go to other schools so without karate they would have never met their new friends.
Now to the question: Is it possible to have too many friends? Well, No! We have an unlimited capacity for compassion in general and friendships so really more is better. And, for those kids who have difficulty making friends, LKC is just the environment for them.
However, as instructors what we often see is that kids are so excited to be around new friends that they sometimes have a little difficulty paying attention but that is a small worry and well worth the benefit of gaining a new best friend! Come experience this for yourself and you will not be disappointed.
