We Create Superheroes
Remember being six years old and wishing you had superpowers? We sure do!
Now imagine if your child believed that they really did have superpowers! We teach kids how to be real Superheroes, and we help bring out the superpowers in everyone.
No, we won’t encourage your kids to learn to fly! We will, however show them how to embrace the super powers inside themselves. At Paragon, we define superheroes as people who help others, and “superpowers” as the abilities that they have within them, such as kindness, creativity, courage, curiosity and perseverance, to name a few. We all have something that we can give to someone. Anyone can all change the world. Anyone can be a superhero. We believe that if we all acted like superheroes and followed their example we could change the world. Our programs bring out the Superhero in all our students!
Creating Change – Creating Superheroes
We have been involved in supporting our community and causes close to our heart for many years. For example, we have raised funds for the paediatric ward at the Angliss Hospital with the Thomas Fun Run; we helped raise funds for the Children’s Tumour Foundation to help the Royal Children’s Hospital improve services to children with Neurofybromatosis; and one year, the whole Paragon team and many of our students participated in the 40 Hour Famine. Sensei Cameron gave up his identity and spent the weekend in various costumes. This might sound a little silly, but those simple actions had a big impact. We raised over $5000 to help solve the Global Food Crisis.
Our Flying Start and Safety Net programs involve our Superkids students completing superhero challenges every term as they work towards their new belts. And our Teen students participate in Activ8, a social action program where they tackle challenges in the world that align with their values every term as they work towards becoming Paragon Black Belt Superheroes.
All it takes to change the world is a few simple actions, multiplied. We are very proud of our Superhero students who embrace creating change at every opportunity through their participation in our programs and via their own initiatives. We are more than just a karate school, we are a family that creates superheroes.
