How would you like Your Child to Get Better Grades, Be more Respectful, Stay Away from Drugs AND Know How to Protect Themselves Against a Bully or a Predator???
If your answer is YES to these questions, then our school is the answer...
We Guarantee It!!!
It's a fact that children who participate in our martial arts program are More Confident, have better Self-Control and Concentrate Better.
That's why ALL our students receive High Grades at school!!
They follow the rules of Effort, Etiquette, Character, Self Control and Sincerity. Taught in EVERY Class
It's no wonder millions of parents supplement their Children's Formal Education with the Martial Arts.
We work with the parents to set clear limits for children. We always insist on good behavior during class, at home and in school.
This is done by drilling in every class the Rules of Conduct, Like....
ETIQUETTE: Proper manners, and to "Honor" Mom and Dad at all times. This rule also means to Respect All Including Themselves, Such as Eating Right, Staying Clean, Exercise Daily, Keeping Room Clean, and.....
SAYING "NO" TO DRUGS AND CRIME!!!
"Heroin: Cape Cod, USA" is a 2015 Documentary examining the impact heroin has had on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, following the stories of eight people who are all in their twenties as they battle with their addiction. Some of which lost their lives to it.
Many parents aren't aware of this movie, but it is an epidemic on the Cape.
IN EVERY CLASS we go over saying NO to drugs & what they will do to you... this lesson will be reinforced over 100 times throughout the year!!!
In OVER 45 years of teaching, none of Grandmaster Brassard's students have EVER touched Drugs!!!
"Train up a child in the way he should go, And even when he is old he will not depart from it." - King Solomon, Proverbs 22:6
Along with this lesson we stress the Golden Rule in every class......
Treat Others the Way You Want to be Treated
They will also learn the rule of EFFORT: Always trying hard, perseverance...AND NEVER GIVING UP!!!
This process takes time to learn and many times kids discouraged; it's easy to just give up and quit, but requires Effort to Succeed. This is were the Parents need to HELP US, and reinforce the principles of Effort.
Albert Einstein once said - "I'm no Smarter then the next guy; I just stuck with the Problem Longer."
And so we teach....
"Quitters Never Win, and Winners Never Quit!!!" - Vince Lombardi
This is taught to all students, and that's why our students Excel at whatever they do.
Gichin Funakoshi - Father of Modern Karate
If my child wants to quit activity, it's easier to just give in and let them quit.
TRUTH: Allowing a child to quit an activity (especially an activity that builds the child from the inside out, like Martial Arts) creates a QUIT TRIGGER inside of them. This trigger goes off any time something becomes challenging.
Make Martial arts a part of their lives and watch how Successful they become.
That QB Tom Brady was selected with pick 199, in the sixth round of the 2000 draft???
He ran a ridiculously slow 5.28 40-yard dash and only managed a 24.5'' vertical leap.
This is what they said about him then....."Poor build, Skinny, Lacks great physical stature and strength, Lacks mobility and ability to avoid the rush, Lacks a really strong arm, Can't drive the ball downfield, Does not throw a really tight spiral and Gets knocked down easily."
What do you think would have happened if He had a Quit Trigger Inside Him???
Pain & Discouragement are Temporary,
Quitting last FOREVER!!!
"Mr. Jim, it has been too long since we last spoke--almost 20 years! Life has been good to me. Long story short, I graduated from the United States Naval Academy with an engineering degree. While there I was a division 1 varsity rower.
Shortly after graduation I attended flight training and have been a navy helicopter pilot since. I have even been to test pilot school and worked as a test pilot for a few years. I am happily married with 3 healthy and wonderful children.
You and your teachings leave a lasting, positive impression on the kids you serve.
Your Martial Arts Training most certainly gave me a Great Foundation for Life." - Mitch Grant, 2nd Degree Black Belt Class of 1997

Our Belt Reward System will improve your Child's Self Esteem MUCH MORE than team sports. It provides them with a greater sense of accomplishment, so they feel better about themselves. This is an important step for them saying "NO" to Drugs and Crime.
Some years back a mother of one of our Young Brown Belts came to me and asked if she could speak to me alone. I thought to myself "Oh boy, here comes a complaint."
Nope....she wanted to tell me that her son was asked to do drugs at school this week and that he FLATLY REFUSED. She told me the training he received at our school would not allow him to EVER do such a thing.
He said to her, "Mr. Jim would kill me if I ever touched drugs."
She went on tell me that whatever you are teaching these kids is invaluable.....and that you can't put a price on a child saying NO to drugs.
That student's name was Rory O'Malley; his mother was a local school teacher here in town. They moved away some years ago.
It's a Fact that EVERY student who trains with us NEVER engages in Drugs or Crime and begins getting Better Grades at School....
Jim Brassard with "Power Ranger" Jason David Frank
I remember when her father came in to speak with me, and said with tears in his eyes.....that our training was a BIG help in raising his daughter.
In fact, he went on to say that when her friends went out to sneak around drinking alcohol....she would stay home and practice her Martial Arts with her brother. She became a EMT and now lives in Danbury, CT.
Liz Madden - Black Belt Class of 2005
"Martial Arts fighters punch so hard due to tiny differences in their Brain structure rather than physical strength, a study has found.
Scientists found that Karate black belts generated more force than fit, untrained people, with timing a major factor.
Other studies have also found that children who practice Karate achieve better maths test scores, and behavior.
It was related to how well wrist and shoulder movements were synchronized - and Brain scans reveal differences in the cerebellum and primary motor cortex, both involved in the movement."
Imperial College London found those who had studied Karate the longest had Finely-Tuned Brains!!!" - Ashleigh Johnstone PhD, Researcher in Cognitive Neuroscience. (This article was originally published in The Conversation May 14, 2018)
Cape Cod Karate instructor Jim Brassard receives a Sports Commendation for the Martial Arts by The President of the United States Barack Obama
In team sports, there is often a steep learning curve when a child is new to the sport. This can mean a lot of time sitting on the bench instead of playing.
This can lead the child to getting bored or discouraged, and quit. And their self-confidence can take a beating in the process.
In martial arts there is NO BENCH. Your child works and progresses at their individual level, and nobody ever has to "sit out."
The flip side of the coin is, what happens when children are really good a team sport??? They play it and love it, and then they graduate school and what happens???
Unless thet go Pro, they have just lost the sport they loved.
Martial is something your child can continue to Practice for a Lifetime
Sports are also seasonal. When the snow melts, there is no more skiing. When soccer/football ends, it's over for the year.
Martial Arts??? The season NEVER ends. It's always there, year-round.
And, if your child does play sports....we can guarantee you the training they will receive with us will enhance their performance.
Your child will learn Perserverance to Suceed, as well as gain skill that can save their LIFE!!! Check out above video for more details...
Check out above video for latests findings....
Your child will learn to Honor their Mother & Father. Check out above video for more details
We wish this wasn't a factor, but the chances of having to
defend oneself in life are almost a certainty.
That's why we teach Real Life Self-Defense Methods to increase their safety. Some Martial arts schools have lots of weapons training in their curriculum. Though this is a Martial art, it does little to prepare your child to protect themselves.
After all, they will not have any of these weapons on them when they have to defend themselves. So instead, we teach THEM to be the weapon.
And just like learning how to swim or ride a bike, these Skills will stay with them for the rest of their Life!!!
You will have Peace of Mind knowing that your child can defend themselves, or get away from any attack
At Jim Brassard's Martial Arts in Hyannis, students learn the 11 hands of the Buddha. A blocking drill that once mastered make it impossible for anyone to put their hands on your child
According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, roughly 800,000 children are reported missing each year in the United States -- that's roughly 2,000 per day.
Wouldn't it be hard for a child to go missing if NO ONE can put their hands on them???
If so, then are two requirements to participate in GM Brassard's Martial Arts Classes....
1st, Our classes are year-round. All participants must train with us 12 months of the year(Not including vacations and holidays or any medical reasons). We would not be able to give you ANY of the results promised otherwise....as well as they can never achieve Black Belt.
2nd, We are a Black Belt School. They and you must be committed to achieving a Black Belt. This will take years of training, but is priceless when it is achieved....AND
"A Black Belt is Not what they Earn, Not what they Wear,
it's what they BECOME!!!"
The reasons for these requirements are because GM Brassard only teaches a couple days a week to the public, so is looking for Parents that want the benefits of his training and the commitment to achieve them....AND Class Space is VERY Limited.
NEXT: We start with a Trial Month for ONLY $129 for two classes a week. (Note: They must come to two classes a week for the program to be effective)
We do this trial month to make sure the student is ready for our program. They have to be able to remember self defense patterns that we teach them, as well as Rules of Behavior and it takes about eight lessons to reveal this.
Classes are held at 141 Bassett Lane Hyannis Ma... Home of the Kennedy Memorial Skating Rink
For ages 5 and up, and are at 5:30-6:30 PM Tuesday and Thursday.
IF they complete the trial period and are approved to become a student of Grandmaster Brassard, then they will get their Karate suit and membership fees are payed every four months for $499
This fee will include ALL Testing Fees. Most schools charge up to $100 to be tested, which can be every 2-3 months. When your child gets promoted to the next rank, there will be no charge. In high ranking promotions, we sponsor a Pizza Party for the class to celebrate such milestones
