Benefit 1: Life Skills / Character Development
Let's face it: in today's society, discipline is greatly lacking. Teaching discipline, respect and courtesy is one of our main focuses here, and one of the major benefits of enrolling your child in Karate for Kids. We enforce -- and teach -- discipline by requiring students to "answer up", say "yes, sir" or "yes, ma'am" when addressing other students, adults and instructors.

Discipline, respect and courtesy are three of the major "life skills" that are cornerstones of the ATA program. Rest assured: within a short period of time, your child will be developing self-discipline, respect and courtesy you can only imagine!

Benefit 2: Coordination, Agility, Balance, Exercise
Tae Kwon Do is one of the best exercises available. The reason why is because Tae Kwon Do includes kicking as well as punching. Kicking works the large muscle groups of the lower body, legs and core.

Kicking also develops a students’ sense of balance. This increased balance pays dividends in other sports as well, such as basketball, football, baseball, soccer and many other sports.

The particular style of Tae Kwon Do taught here also increases your child’s coordination, body awareness, endurance, flexibility, power and greatly builds their strength. Giving your child a life-long skill such as Tae Kwon Do helps get them excited about exercise and develops positive lifelong habits that will benefit your kids for a long, long time.
Benefit 3: A Family-Like Support System
Unlike many smaller "independent" martial arts schools, ATA Martial Arts is an official ATA martial arts school. ATA stands for "American Tae Kwon Do Association".

The ATA is the largest martial arts organization in the world! With over 1,500 schools in the United States alone, your child will get many more opportunities to make quality friends not only with people here in our community, but around United States as well.

And because Karate for Kids adheres to the guidelines and training regiments of the ATA, you can rest assured with the knowledge that the training your child receives has been tested and proven with millions of students over almost 30 years. This is something most "independent" martial arts schools cannot offer.

Also, by being part of the ATA, you and your child can visit other ATA schools and train for free if you’re on vacation or if you move. With the support of the largest martial arts organization world behind you in your child, there's nothing he or she cannot accomplish! Visit to learn more about the ATA.

Benefit 4: Self-Confidence, Self-Respect, Self-Esteem and Self-Control.
As your child develops here at Karate for Kids, you'll notice an amazing transformation take place. Each month, your child will be more confident, show greater self-esteem and more self-control. All of this translates into one important quality: self-respect.

Can you think of anything better than arming your children with self-respect, self-esteem and self-confidence? In fact, studies show children who participate in martial arts are far less likely to engage in risky behavior such as drug abuse, alcohol abuse and smoking.

The reason why is simple: ATA Tae Kwon Do teaches essential life skills such as self-confidence, self-respect, self-esteem and self-control.

Any child who has self-respect is better able to resist the negative influences of peer pressure most kids experience growing up. This is yet another powerful benefit of enrolling your child in ATA Tae Kwon Do training.
Benefit 5: Self-Defense
Unfortunately, today’s society can be a dangerous and threatening place for adults as well as kids. The self-defense skills your child will learn at Karate for Kids can literally save their life.

While most parents don’t enroll their kids here specifically for this reason, it is a powerful benefit of training in ATA Tae Kwon Do.
Bullying is another big threat for kids these days. Unfortunately, one out of every four children will be a victim of a bully at some point this year. And one out of every five children admits to being a bully himself!

The martial arts skills your child will learn here at Karate for Kids is a highly effective solution to schoolyard bullying. We teach kids (as well as adults) the skills they need to defend themselves in all types of different situations. We also teach kids NOT to bully others through self-control.

Surprisingly, most other Tae Kwon Do schools do NOT focus on self-defense. Instead, they focus on the "sport" of Tae Kwon Do (sometimes called “Olympic” style). While the sport aspects of Tae Kwon Do have an important role, I believe we need to devote more time to training people to defend themselves against attackers in real-life situations.

Bottom line: Here at Karate for Kids, we give your child the skills they need to defend him or herself against schoolyard bullies, predators, common criminals and others who would seek to do them harm.
