                                                                    The foundation of the Karate for Kids curriculum is the education and                                                                                    development of life-skills such as positive mental attitude, high goal                                                                                        setting, perseverance, self-control and confidence.

                                                                   Karate for Kids training is designed to be fun and fulfilling for each student. This                                                                      is because Taekwondo is an individual activity rather than a team sport.                                                                                 Therefore every student is an active and valuable participant in class. They                                                                           work out with kids their own age and progress at their own pace. Parents are                                                                         welcome and encouraged to take class with their kids.

                                                                   The ATA Karate for Kids program is perfect for parents looking for an activity                                                                         that is not just great exercise but that also teaches their school age children                                                                           lessons they will use throughout their life. The way children learn and what                                                                            motivates them is the reason we offer a program exclusively for children.

Since its introduction in 1986, the Karate for Kids program has helped children all over the world learn Discipline, Self-Esteem and Respect. By combining the Discipline of traditional martial arts, learning Respect through life skill development and the Self-Esteem gained through our unique reward system, your child will advance in the martial arts while reaching their fullest potential.

Since martial arts is an individual activity rather than a team sport, each child is an active and valuable participant in the class. They train with kids their own age and size under well supervised conditions while progressing at their own pace.

The Karate for Kids system is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. We feel so positive about this program that we promise to give your children the most professional, well supervised and the highest quality classes available in any sport or art. Our instructors take their responsibility seriously as role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of strong character, leadership and good values.
