There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the martial arts. ATA has developed a program based on traditional Taekwondo called Karate For Kids. With some children’s activities, the learning stops when the activity ends. The goal here is to teach children how to take the life skills we teach and put them to use in their lives at home and in school. Our reward program will help you reinforce our lessons at home and in school. Because our program is karate-based, we are proud to help children learn the values of courtesy, discipline, self-control and respect. You can continue the lessons at home in a fun and exciting way with our weekly progress reports. We will reward him or her in front of the entire class, helping reinforce good behavior. However we also understand that sometimes our children have trouble displaying these values so if you need a little extra support we will work side by side with you to make sure your child is on the right track. Taekwondo can be a lifelong activity that can make a great contribution to your child’s overall well-being. The moves apply to self-defense and your child will also learn safety lessons designed to prevent abduction, and molestation and will help them manage the school year bully. We will work hard to make sure your child earns a Black Belt in martial arts but that they also get a Black Belt in grades in school. Our certified instructors will help stress the importance of studying and getting good grades.
