Karate for Kids is a Taekwondo program that focuses on physical and mental improvement in disciplined, fun-filled classes for children ages 6 to 14. There are many excellent reasons for kids to become involved with Martial Arts. We have developed a program based on the most successful teaching methods for children.
Let’s take a closer look…
Our curriculum is world class and developed with over 40 years of research. It’s designed to teach a student to stand before they walk, walk before they run, and some day soar to heights they never knew were possible. Our class plans are laid out 3 years in advance. This allows our staff to implement our vision rather than teaching classes on the fly. Our curriculum challenges our students without holding them to unrealistic expectations. We recognize and appreciate every student as an individual, and we encourage each student to perform to the best of their individual capabilities.
You will notice a positive change in your child after a short period of time in our program. Although it may take a while for students to kick and punch like black belts, we help our students to think like a black belt from very early on. Thru our positive reinforcement we provide an environment that nurtures success and helps your child see and realize improvement that keeps them coming back for more. Our ultimate goal is to help each student earn their black belt and attain personal success in Taekwondo and in everyday life. If we are given the opportunity to achieve this goal, we know we can give your child an experience that will last a lifetime!
There are many excellent reasons for kids to become involved with Martial Arts. We have developed a program based on the most successful teaching methods for children. When teaching kids, it is important to have a balance between structure, discipline and fun. Parents are typically looking for an activity that will provide their children with more focus, confidence and self-control while allowing them to burn off some excess energy. Kids want to have fun and learn how to do the cool Martial Arts moves they have seen on TV and in movies. Our program accomplishes the goals of both parents and children by combining life skills, such as honesty, integrity and belief, with top-quality martial arts skills. The combination of these attributes taught by our Internationally Certified Instructors will inspire your child to have self discipline that will spill over into all aspects of their life.
Self-discipline itself is not enough, we also teach our Kids the art of self-defense, an important life skill. Kids today face more bullies and negative peer pressure than ever before, so it is essential they have the skills necessary to distinguish between good and bad, right or wrong. This is why we teach a realistic, streetwise self-defense system that combines the most effective kickboxing and submission grappling techniques coupled with loud assertive verbal commands, so kids learn to defend themselves in virtually any situation, whether they are standing up or end up on the ground. They also learn conflict resolution and when they should and shouldn’t use their newfound skills.
STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT…
- Kids who learn self-defense become more assertive and less aggressive.
- Kids who know how to defend themselves typically don’t have to since they carry themselves in a more confident manner.
If this sounds like serious stuff…don’t worry! Our kid’s classes are taught in a safe, fun and exciting environment with an excellent student to instructor ratio. Students are not compared to each other, but rather progress at their own pace. The competition is “from oneself to oneself”.
It’s easy! Have your son or daughter come in for a free introductory lesson with one of our instructors. Afterwards, you’ll have a consultation to discuss goals, scheduling and our programs.
