About Our Children's Karate Program

Tang Soo Do
Our karate program for children employs techniques that build strength, endurance, flexibility, posture, balance and coordination. In addition there are many "non-physical" benefits to traditional karate practice. Our program is an excellent confidence booster for children as it eliminates the need for them to compete or compare themselves to their peers. Instead, our program encourages kids to draw on their own strengths and strive for their personal best.

Improve Attention Span & Focus

Children who are focused have an easier time setting and achieving goals because they’re not intimidated by the hard work. Our program helps kids improve their focus. In addition, the practice of karate can also improve the concentration of kids who suffer from attention disorders.

Increased Confidence

Our structured approach helps to build your child's self esteem one step at a time so your child can feel more valuable and increasing their confidence. Additionally, because your child is learning self defense, they can build the skills needed to protect themselves.

Improved Physical Skills

Traditional karate practice utilizes techniques that will improve your child's strength, flexibility and coordination. These improvements are easily transferable to other competitive sports such as soccer, baseball, football and other sporting activities.

Self Defense

Although we may never want to think about it as parents, but there may be a time when your child has to defend themselves against someone trying to do them harm. Traditional karate can give children the skills needed to surprise a potential attacker or help to defend themselves against the neighborhood bully.

Children who develop self-confidence from traditional karate practice have the ability to face challenges directly. It requires mental focus and concentration to execute karate techniques and eventually the focus carries over into everyday activities. Karate practice can eventually improve study habits, school performance, listening abilities, and the ability to follow directions.
