Give your child the gift of Confidence!

“I wanted to take a moment to recognize Sensei Tim Loomis and The Silent Mind for the changes I have seen in my son who is 11 years old.  He was in dire need of self-confidence and discipline before he started to take classes.  I discussed these issues with Sensei Tim and he assured me that this would help.  I am here to say that in just 8 months of being a part of The Silent Mind I have seen dramatic improvements in both areas as well as his school work.  Thank you for making a big difference in my son’s life.” – Gib Pallay, 1/2010

Dear Parent,

I don’t blame you. You’re thinking, “Come on how can a martial arts program teach wholesome values and success skills?”  Well, I’m here to tell you, in more ways that you can begin to imagine.

My name is Timothy R. Loomis. I’m owner of The Silent Mind here in Twinsburg, Ohio. For more than 44 years I’ve been nurturing children like yours with character building tools found only through martial art programs. No other sport can match these programs. I’ll tell you how you and your child can sample all of this, and more. Free of charge!!

Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy and spirit. Stand and be amazed as he becomes unstoppable in his quest for:

* Greater academic achievement
* Unshakable self respect
* Increased strength and fitness, in both body and mind

All of these benefits come while learning how to kick, block, and punch. Because your child’s first and biggest challenge comes not from fighting for his rights on the street, or beating up the neighborhood bully. His or her biggest challenge comes from battling more sinister forces — their own fears and self doubts.

Have you ever heard your child say:

* “I’m not as smart as John,”
* “I don’t get what my teacher is saying,”
* “I wish I was as [strong, pretty, tall, etc.] as Sally,”
* “Why does Jim keep giving me a bad time?”
* “Why can’t I be as popular as Jill?”

How do you get your child to fight these demons? You know the problem. Your child has a tough time even telling you she or he is haunted by them, never mind how to conquer them. Well, the good news is, I have a proven solution — A program that has already worked for thousands of children. This program consists of a series of lessons your child can learn easier than you think. I call it AboutFace. Let me tell you its secret.

The study of Martial Arts is more about your child learning to overcome his fears than it is about fighting others. When he does conquer them, your child unleashes within a powerful, unstoppable force. A force that gives him the strength to kick down the doors of self doubt, a force that opens him to the exalting power of his personal values.

When your child uses the discipline of Martial Arts to conquer fear, she has the power to transfer that discipline to all other areas of life. I know of no other sport that does this better than Martial Arts. (And I should know. Remember, I’ve been a martial artist for more than 44 years starting when I was just 8 years old.)

Now, you may be asking, why and how does Martial Arts manage to do a better job of teaching values? It’s because more than any other sport, Martial Arts gives your child the chance to explore his/her innate powers. Your child will marvel (as will you) as he/she increases in strength, flexibility, endurance, balance, and harmony. Yet this is only the start.

Your child’s physical skills will act as a foundation for something much more important — the development of value skills, both mental and spiritual. These skills will not be cut off from his/her physical skills, but intimately connected even bonded to them.

Your child will find the courage to move outside of his/her comfort zone. As he takes on more difficult Martial Arts moves and skills, he ceases to be afraid of being afraid. He learns that whatever he sows, he reaps. He learns to blame no one but himself. He learns to see his life as a constant, never-ending journey of life-giving improvement.

Your child will gain greater staying power, and find joy in improving her physical stamina. She will walk farther, run longer, and practice skills until she gets them right. She learns not to give up. With the help of her instructors, she strives harder and longer to reach goals. Even if she falters, she perseveres. She won’t let her self doubts get in the way of finding ultimate solutions.

And your child will gain greater self confidence. Your child will learn that to succeed, you can’t fool anyone, especially yourself. This results in a keener focus. Your child learns to make eye contact with and pay greater attention to his or her teacher (and not just their Martial Arts teacher). And they learn to know and accept where they stand.

These are just three of the powerful, energizing values your child will receive from the AboutFace program.

Your child will learn:

  1. Powerful self control: She’ll refuse to give in to negative peer pressure. She’ll have deeper respect for rules.
  2. Improved focus: She’ll 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.
  3. Fearless self confidence: Watch as your child finds the courage to open any door life has to offer.

Towering Role-Model Teachers:

As you might guess, all of this couldn’t happen unless I have the very best teachers. To make sure I have the best, each of them have years of Martial Art experience in my and other systems and have been thoroughly trained in teaching skills. Today, they are all martial arts experts advanced Black Belts.

Still, you may be wondering if this will work for your child. I understand. Let me tell you an old martial arts story as told by one of my instructors as I was progressing through the ranks. It illustrates our perspective on the best ways to handle conflict.

Now, I still know what you’re thinking:  How can I know for sure the AboutFace program will work for my child?  I’ve made it very easy for you to find out I’ll give you your child’s first lesson FREE with no other obligation.

Believe me, in just one lesson, you will see your child come away with her self confidence greatly improved. Not just in how she feels. She’ll actually end up with real “Life Skills,” skills that she can put to powerful use right now, today. All while enjoying the fun and excitement of an upbeat martial arts program.

Don’t worry! It is consistently stressed to all students that Martial Arts skills require them never to be abusive or offensive and are only for use defensively. After a short period of time students become markedly less aggressive while maintaining confidence and high personal self-esteem.

Thank you for your time and I hope to meet you at my school.
