How martial arts can change a child’s life
“I want my child to be able to defend themselves…”
“I want my child to be active and healthy”
“I want my child to pay attention and follow directions.”
Do you find yourself saying those things as a parent? As parents, we want what’s best for our children. We want our kids to be safe, healthy, and well-behaved. And guess what? Martial arts can help your child become all three of things.
Tiger-Cubs (ages 4 and 5 year olds) serves as our early childhood development program. Young students learn the basics of martial arts. Moreover, students in this class participate in activities that focus on symmetrical, repetitive movements. As a result, students are able to have an early start at improving their balance and physical coordination. Most important, the groundwork for improvement in discipline is laid as they will be required to follow simple directions.
Juniors (ages 6 to 11 years old) is designed for elementary and intermediate school students. Students in this age group participate in kicking, striking, and sparring drills. Plus, students learn key self-defense techniques, anti-bullying strategies, and stranger awareness!
Teens (ages 12 to 15 years old) not only learn advanced martial arts techniques, but also the skills necessary to become effective in leadership and good citizenship. Designed for junior high and high school students, this program helps teens navigate the most formidable years of their life. As a result, this program helps them prepare for the next steps needed to achieve their goals in life.

Taekwondo training for kids

In fact, your child will participate in various striking drills that mostly involve kicking. However, we integrate other forms of martial arts, too, and we also feature striking and grappling exercises.
