Leadership Program Information

The Gravesend Martial Arts Academy is about to introduce one of the most exciting and innovative programs you and your child will ever experience in the area of Personal Responsibility Education. The program is S.W.A.T. (Special Winning Attitude Team). The S.W.A.T. Leadership program was developed by the Jefferson centre for Education, located in Pasadena, California. Over 5,000 schools and 50,000 classrooms currently use the S.W.A.T. curriculum across the USA; it has reached nearly 2 million students. We are one of the first in this country to have the S.W.A.T program.
The Jefferson centre for character education is a non-profit, non-sectarian organisation founded in 1963 which addresses the need to teach character education in both public and private schools. The Jefferson centre focuses on the systematic teaching of common values that cut across the ethnic, cultural, and religious lines. These values include: honesty, respect, responsibility, integrity, courage, tolerance, justice, self-confidence, and politeness.
At our school our mission is to install in students these very values using the martial arts, we believe this to be an ongoing process and not something to be achieved in a month, or year, but rather over a life time of education and effort. We have chosen the S.W.A.T program because it is the perfect complement to our philosophy. S.W.A.T will provide an ongoing, systematic method of teaching the core values on which our program is based.

S.W.A.T is designed to teach students to:
• Accept the consequences of their actions
• Use the S.T.A.R. Stop, Think, Act, and Review decision-making model to solve problems and resolve conflicts.
• Develop and improve self-confidence, self-esteem, and positive attitudes.
• Set and achieve realistic goals.
• Accept that attendance at class, punctuality, and reliability, are part of being personally responsible
