Karate Wausau/Halloween Party

We are currently getting ready to celebrate our 20th annual Wausau area Halloween party in our Schofield Premier Martial Arts school.  We have students attending from all of our satelite school programs like the Wausau YMCA, Little Scholars preschool, DCE community education Kickboxing program, Antigo Premier Martial Arts  and students from the Schofield Premier Martial Arts  location.

We have worked on building the Haunted house for the past 3 weeks and now it’s time to start our ghoulish  party.  We have some pretty creepy people ready to spook you and some creative props to freak you out, made by all of our helpers.  The party is free to anyone that wants to have a good time and behaves well.  We do ask that you bring a dish to pass, so everyone has something to eat during the event.   

We tone it down for the younger kids and try to pick it up for the older kids/adults.  The party starts 7:00 on Saturday October 29th, 2011 and goes till 10:00 pm.  We will have soda, light sticks, contests and candy for participants. 

You must dress up in a costume!  Even parents!  That way we will never know who you are unless you tell us!! 

The party is located at Premier Martial Arts, 920 Grand Ave. Schofield, WI 715-355-4222.  Across the street from Arby’s in Schofield, behind Coldwell Banker Realty. 

See you there.

Wausau Taekwondo


Are you are wondering if Martial Arts training is a good choice for your child?  Many parents are concerned that their children will learn to be more aggressive than others if they enroll in Taekwondo classes.  This is a very big misconception. 

What exactly is Taekwondo? The Korean art is known as the art of hand and foot fighting and a way of life. I was taught that half of your training was to develop physical skills and the other was to develop a strong moral values, especially discipline.

Children develop better listening skills, more self control/strategies to deal with difficult children, get more exercise and gain more confidence than other children with proper training in the martial arts.   Children are easily influenced by television with all the violent shows available to them as well as role models with poor character traits, it’s no wonder a parent would have concerns.

In our Wausau Taekwondo training, (call 715-355-4222 for more information) a student learns how to show self discipline by practicing certain behavior traits.  They lose belt ranking if they break any major rules, like hurting someone else, when their life is not in danger.  If you pick a fight you, start, or cause a fight, you are not demonstrating black belt excellence.  Therefore, you do not deserve to wear any rank higher than a white belt (beginner belt).  Just this one method of dealing with poor behavior prevents and teaches students consequences for poor behavior, and that it is not acceptable to behave that way.

Your child may have a more difficult time working on self control, but that does not mean they should not get involved.  That is how you fix your child. Don’t hide them hoping the problem will go away.  If they get in trouble in Taekwondo training, they may have to go on a time out, or do some extra pushups but they have to start learning today.  If you wait till they are teenagers and try to change their behaviors after years of problems, they will have developed patterns that will be difficult to break.
