Sensei Stomberg is a cheerful and welcoming instructor. Her martial arts skills are even better than her attitude. 360 Defense has helped me build my strength and endurance beyond what I could ever have imagined - both physical and mental.

I can't recommend this program and Sensei Stomberg enough. Both my kids now 13 and 10 started training several years ago and they love it. Sensei and the other instructors always keep a great balance of technique, discipline, character building and physical fitness all while keeping it extremely positive and fun. I also started training at 360 in my 40's and love the adult program. It has provided me the right amount of physical challenge and fitness while showing me real techniques to defend myself. I only wish I started young like my kids but better late than never.

Walking into a Martial Arts/ Krav class can be immensely intimidating, down right scary....or so I thought. 360 Defense Middletown was extremely welcoming and non judge mental. Everyone is working at their own pace while encouraging one another to push a little further. I am so happy I decided to start my training at 360 under Kayla Stomberg. If you’re thinking about trying it look no further. 1 month in for me and could not be happier with my decision. Super clean, modern space, friendly people, REAL world self defense and a kick a__ trainer. Go now!

We love 360! It’s a beautiful brand new physical space that is warm and welcoming. Kayla is amazing! She is so energetic and patient with all the kids. We love that she focuses on the whole child- physical strength, emotional goals, education and character building. I know that the experience our son is having will have a lasting impact.

My son and I have trained under Sensei Stomberg at 360 Defense in Colchester for a couple years now. She is helpful and fierce and wonderful and an excellent instructor - to children and adults alike. Our loss is clearly Middletown's gain! We will def be taking the road trip to stop by and train!!!

I joined the school in February and absolutely love it. The classes are tailored to all levels of abilities. Kayla is a wonderful teacher and so patient with the kids. The classes are fun but definitely challenging. We have great students.

The Positive Effects of Martial Arts for a Child in School

Grade school can be quite the experience for any child. It is a place where a child not only learns academically but one where a child must learn to socialize and function in the world. Unfortunately, there are a lot of negative experiences that a child may have when going through school. Whatever those experiences may be, it would be a good idea to have a child participate in martial arts classes. Doing so will give them the tools they need to survive the school experience. The benefits associated with taking martial arts classes are essential for them to be able to have a positive experience in school.

Helps them earn better grades in school

Getting good grades is reflective of a child’s comprehension of the material. But, it is also indicative of their discipline and responsibility traits. Through martial arts, students are to learn the fundamentals of stretch and physical routines. They also learn to become disciplined with practice and keeping up with their cleanliness of uniforms. Children learn how to be punctual and can focus their daily thoughts on the tasks at hand. Thus, being able to exhibit these positive traits will translate to better grades as schooling requires the proficiency of these characteristics.

Gives them the confidence to stand up to bullies

Bullying is a very prominent and unfortunate experience that many children will either witness or become victims of in their lifetimes. Being a part of martial arts can give children the strength and confidence that they need to stand up to these negative individuals. Not only will they learn about self-defense strategies, they will be able to feel assertive and courageous. Possessing self-confidence is the number one way for a child to be able to stand up for him/herself in any threatening situation. Through martial arts, they will learn that not all conflicts have to be physical. They will possess the mature mindset to tackle any conflict with assurance and pride.

Gives them the ability to make friends

Having friends and keeping them can be the big difference between a positive and negative school experience for children. They will latch onto people who share common interests with them and feel devastated when those relationships disappear. However, for children who regularly practice martial arts, they have a different capacity to make and keep friends in their circle. Besides making friends in the martial arts classes themselves, children are able to easily socialize and collaborate with other students at school. They instill a lot of the same discipline and traits they learn from martial arts in their everyday lives. For instance, they may be first to initiate a conversation with quiet students because they feel confident in themselves to do so.

Being a part of something special such as martial arts can be greatly impactful for children. Especially when it comes to school, children can gain invaluable skills and behaviors that will allow them to have more successful experiences in social settings. Although school is meant to teach them about a variety of things, having martial arts as a supplement can significantly affect the way they approach schooling and their overall experiences.
