Since 1969, over one million students have trained in one of the 950 ATA Licensed schools. Our students regularly go on to join Ivy schools and become community leaders. The values they learn during their martial arts journey are the same you teach at home and last a lifetime.
Social interaction teaches kids how to effectively work as part of a team.
Martial arts helps improve coordination and is an excellent form of exercise.
Building healthy habits early on can help prevent obesity and diabetes later in life.
Belt testing provides an excellent exercise for kids in learning how to set and achieve goals. Their self-esteem will continue to rise with each accomplishment as they watch their hard work pay off.
Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD.
The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades, while improving their listening skills at home and in school.
Our pre-school program is for ages 3-6, Karate for Kids classes are for ages 7-12, and our Juniors program is for ages 13-17.
We offer month-to-month memberships, as well as savings on longer plans.
You will receive an email with instructions on how to schedule your first class. One of our instructors will call you, or you may call the school directly.
Absolutely not. Although they will learn cool martial arts and self-defense moves, your child will learn how to AVOID fights, not pick them. Point sparring (sport taekwondo) is a safe and supervised game played in full protective gear. While the risk of the occasional bump or bruise exists, these injuries are rare because very light to no-contact is required. Worse injuries are even more rare than that.
Our Martial Arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a playful, safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - the kids have a blast and our instructors do too.
No, our classes are a good mix of boys and girls of all fitness levels. Beginners train alongside some of the more experienced kids, helping each other out in a fun team environment.
