WELCOME TO THE MILADI GROUP!
This organization offers outstanding programs to enhance individual values and development through Excellence in Art-Sports, Fitness and Health.
Alex Miladi is the founder and chief instructor at the Miladi Group. He began his karate training in 1972. Sensei Miladi’s desire is to never stop learning and growing as a karate practitioner. He has continued to train and travel in order to expand his karate knowledge. He has studied, trained and taught karate in Asia, Europe and, since 1990, in the United States. Over the years he has trained and coached all levels of karate-ka (students of karate), from the passive child to whom karate is just a hobby, to international competitors.
These experiences have taught him that the most important area of your daily life is personal health. You cannot put a value on how important it is to start physical activity at an early age, but it is never too late to start. The Miladi Group was created in order to help people on their journey to a healthy lifestyle. Located in Yuba City, California, The Miladi Group is home to:
Miladi Defense (more information)
A 1985 study found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education.
A reward system improves children’s self-esteem-The belt system is the key to building esteem. When kids earn their belts it gives them a great sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves.
Our program teaches children discipline- We have a trained staff of patient instructors who love to work with children, but are also very clear about limits. We enforce good rules of good behavior in class, and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school.
Our activities channel children’s aggression-Many doctors have prescribed our school because of the positive outlet it gives the kids for all their energy.
Tournaments let a student see if they can perform at their best in a stressful situation, compare their skills with others and improve from what they learn. We encourage our students to compete but do not require it. Most importantly we teach that winning meant you were better that day, but…
Competition is usually done in fighting (called sparring or kumite) and in individual forms (called kata). Kumite is done under rules designed to maintain safety, while providing as realistic an atmosphere as possible. Kata competition is the demonstration of pre-arranged moves and combinations with emphasis on proper execution, balance, timing power, and intensity.
Our tournaments are based on the rules of the World Karate Federation, with minor modifications.
