Power Cards

 

 

Change the Game with Creative Connections Power Cards!!

Power cards are the one collectible card you can’t buy in any store! Students complete the character based missions on the card and have a family member initial the task on the power card checklist.

For children, Martial artists can be like walking, talking superheroes. Power cards link martial arts skills to the cornerstones of character development: practicing self control, respect for others, and self discipline. The kids want the cards, but they have to successfully complete the mission on the back before receiving the next card. Keeping their room clean. Not interrupting when someone is talking. Thanking you for bringing them to class. These are their missions, and the doorway to responsible adulthood. Each time your child completes a task, they bring their checklist to class.  Our instructors will present your child with their new Power Card.
