MISSION STATEMENT: ADULTS
Affinity Academy is dedicated to providing an interactive space where one can learn the Arts of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and Kickboxing. Affinity Academy’s staff is not interested in mindlessly teaching a skill, but are dedicated to fostering lasting relationships between instructors, staff, students and their families. Our mission is to inspire and empower you to unveil your true potential by instilling and incorporating the principles of Martial Arts into all aspects of life by perfecting character, promoting peace and harmony, preserving the path of truth, extending courtesy, and respecting all.
Our programs are designed to be positive and inspirational. We’ll keep you motivated and thinking about progress and goals.
You’ll be encouraged to take chances, to push yourself further than you have ever thought possible. The success you experience through our program teaches you that you can be successful at anything if you truly believe you can. Improved confidence leads to better performance at work, a better circle of friends, better performance in sports and in extracurricular activities in general. Your improved self-confidence will help you deal with all of life’s challenges with a more positive outlook.
On the physical side, you will improve your strength, flexibility and overall health. You will learn to submit opponents with tremendous power and effectiveness. Hopefully you’ll never need to fight, but should the occasion arise, shouldn’t everyone know how to protect themselves? The second form of self-defense Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) teaches is internal. Our students learn to spot danger and avoid dangerous people, places and activities. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) helps you avoid the need for a physical confrontation.
Teach your child the self-discipline & perseverance necessary to excel in all of their academic and athletic endeavours. Improve your child’s motor skills by constantly increasing their eye, hand and foot coordination. Help your child understand the importance of respect — the more we show, the more we receive. Show your child how to focus and concentrate — the necessary skills to achieve better grades in school. Teach your child the self-defense skills to defend him/herself if absolutely necessary. Give your child the social skills to interact with others through a training program that encourages them to be team players.
Family values like respect, humility, self-control and honesty are an integral part of our Martial Arts Program. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is one of the very few places outside of the home where these principles are taught. They are the fundamental difference between Martial Arts and any other activity in which your child may participate. We teach lessons that last a lifetime – no other activity comes close!
