There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the martial arts. We have developed a program based on traditional Taekwondo for kids called Karate for Kids. The Karate Kid system is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills.
A psychological study found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility and a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks. They also have a high sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children's education.
Parents enroll their children in our programs for different reasons, but with one common goal: to help their children grow and mature to the best of their abilities.
Parents play a unique role in their children's training, acting as the liaison from the karate school to the home. The more an instructor knows about a child's home and school life, the better he/she can work with the child and the parent.
Our belt and award systems are the keys to building self esteem. When kids earn their belts or earn stars for grades, it gives them a great sense of accomplishment that really improves the way they feel about themselves.
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 and behavior in class and we expect the same good behavior at home and in school.
Many doctors have prescribed our school because of the positive outlet it gives the kids for all their energy. In fact studies have shown that children who learn Self Defense become more assertive & less aggressive.
Children who know how to defend themselves usually don't have to, because they carry themselves in a more confident manner, and confidence alone is a deterrent to bullies.
Martial art training is so popular because not other activity can provide the same positive results, on a personal level, for each individual participant. Whether your goals are self-confidence, self-defense, personal development, fitness, flexibility or to earn a black belt, our school will take you and your children there. From our pre-school programs to our martial arts fitness programs, our instructors are dedicated to helping you and your family achieve your specific goals.
