There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the martial arts. ATA’s Karate for Kids program is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to the technical skills of traditional Taekwondo.
The building blocks for our system are monthly themes such as:
Parents are welcome to take classes with their children.
“A family that kicks together, sticks together.”
Children become more self-confident in Taekwondo because they progress individually at their own pace and are not judged against others. There are no bench-sitters in Taekwondo.
Taekwondo teaches children to think — instead of panic — in potentially serious situations, as well as how to react to threats from other kids.
All students in the Juniors program learn skills, such as following directions, paying attention in class, and participate in class activities that help them become better students.
Taekwondo challenges the entire body, developing coordination, balance, agility, and poise — qualities often neglected in many team sports available to children in this age group.
Taekwondo lessons are a dynamic and challenging approach to the martial arts for children who are athletic, energetic, awkward, or shy, cold, nice, or maybe even a little wild once in a while. Taekwondo is probably for a kid just like yours.
