Our Classes

Kids Karate (Ages 5-7)

In each 30 minute class, kids learn proper etiquette, bowing and following directions quickly. Students gain confidence, discipline, strength, and balance while learning dozens of kicks, blocks, and strikes, and forms. They block foam bats, jump over obstacles, and strike through boards. At the end of class, we play a fun game and kids earn a stripe on their belt.

Junior Taekwondo (Ages 8-13)

Taekwondo is one of the most popular martial arts in the world, possibly because it features more kicks than any other! The Junior Taekwondo program was created for a younger audience but retains all the core values and benefits of Taekwondo, and of course, ALL the kicks! Each class consists of new kicks, strikes, blocks, and techniques for defending and escaping from attackers. Students also do board breaking, learn Korean words, and play fun games.

Highly structured program with computerized belt tracking. Each class has a theme which changes daily. Popular themes include Kick Tricks, Board Breaking, Demo Team, Form Clinic, Sparring, and Advanced Self-Defense. On test day students receive a new belt and certificate and break real wooden boards (all included with your tuition). Come in for a free trial!
