At Yi's Martial Arts Fitness Academy, the primary goal is to bring out the best in all students who are willing to try, to learn, and to improve themselves through Martial Arts training. We empower students in the Alton Riverbend and Metro East Area area to transform their lives and the world and communities we live in. While our style’s defensive training systems were developed long ago, leadership training is a relatively recent and extremely helpful development. In the Martial Arts program lead by expert instructor Chris Lee, children, teens, and adults from all backgrounds are trained not only to defend themselves but also to lead – readily, willingly, and capably. Martial Arts principles, techniques, and philosophy are a proven pathway to developing Leadership in all practitioners.
Even members of the most esteemed and well-heeled families today face very serious problems: bullying, sexual assault, teen pregnancy, gang activity, drug abuse, violent crime, mental disorders, school violence, and more. Nationwide the teen death rate implicates alcohol first, homicide second, and suicide third. Leadership – learned while training in the Martial Arts – is a proven effective method for defending your family against these dangers. At the Yi's Martial Arts Fitness Academy facility in Wood River, IL, kids and adults learn how to resist and shut down peer pressure, adopt good habits, resolve and overcome conflicts, create win-win situations, and get everyone moving in the same direction.
- Social Skills – With a common goal in mind and a positive learning environment, developing productive, lasting relationships is both possible and probable for students training in Leadership.
- Physical Activity – Setting and achieving goals, such as attaining ranks, belts, and other awards in our Martial Arts Leadership program, instills the confidence to pursue other life goals.
- Respect – Our Martial Arts Leadership program teaches respect for authority, fellow humans, and all living things. Respect is the cornerstone of consideration, compassion, and service – uncommon traits sorely needed for the betterment of our world today and ever after.
