30 Kids, 3 Months, 1 Goal... Transform!

Submitted By Bobby Hernandez

Hernandez Martial Arts has produced Champions in the Ring as well as Champions in Life for over 30 years. Now, the longest running Martial Arts Studio in Union City is looking to make a big impact on their community by announcing the launch of a Free, 90 Day Transformational Project for Kids called "Transform," set to begin June 1, 2012 at their Union City Martial Arts Studio.

Co-Owners Bob and Bobby Hernandez, as well as their team of Black Belt Instructors, will work with 30 kids this June, July and August, age 6 to 11 and lead them through a Martial Arts Training Regimen that doesn't support the use of punching and kicking but rather advocates use of Common Sense Before Self-Defense; and the best part is, it's Absolutely Free to 30 Kids!

"Fighting is a very small part of being a Martial Artist," says Bobby Hernandez, Jr., "What's more valuable than anything is the character and values one gains from their Martial Art training, then putting it to use in everyday life. Values such as Focus and Concentration for Better Grades, Self-Discipline to complete homework and chores, Confidence to believe in themselves and handle unwanted situation, Self-Control to maintain ones impulses and actions and we can't forget Respect for parents, teachers, family members and friends. This in itself is what makes you a Martial Artist and this type of training teaches kids that most physical confrontations are unnecessary and can be avoided while developing the skills that are necessary to be successful in life."

These 30 children will train two times a week in the late afternoon / early evenings in a fun, safe, kid oriented environment. Students and parents will have the opportunity to choose days and times so classes will coincide with even the busiest of schedules and students will have the opportunity to earn their first belt rank at the end of the 90 project. In addition, there's no money to pay, nor any obligation to stay, just a good old fashion Community Service Project to help enhance, improve, change, modify or "Transform" Character Traits in children.

Registration for the Transform Project is currently in progress and will end May 31, 2012 or when the 30 free spaces are filled.

"Knowing how to defend yourself may help you one day," says Bob Hernandez, Sr., "but living like a Martial Artist will help you every day."
