ATA MARTIAL ARTS KIDS
Through personal growth and achievement, students advance with a martial arts belt rank but are also acknowledged for outstanding performance in martial arts class, school, home, special events, or in tournament competition.
Karate for Kids
ATA Karate for kids is a specialized program created exclusively for children. The Karate for Kids program includes two age groups, both of which teach the fundamentals of martial arts for kids. Pre-school karate for kids classes for children ages 3-6 and the karate for kids classes are for children ages 7 through 12. 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.
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.
“Before I started Taekwondo ATA Karate Classes, I used to be really shy, and whenever I’d have to do a school project and talk in front of the class, you could barely hear me. I was really nervous. But, since I’ve started with the ATA [Karate] and the Leadership classes I can talk in front of the class and it has helped.”
- Adrian K. (age 12)
A little over a year ago our family was introduced to ATA [Karate] and Martial Arts, and I had no idea the amount of difference it made in our lives.”

But, since they started with the ATA [Karate] and the Leadership classes both can talk in front of the class and it has helped their grades.”
