Every Kid is a Winner! Every Kid is Special!

There are many reasons for kids to become involved in the Martial Arts. We have developed a program based on traditional Taekwondo for kids called Karate for Kids. The Karate for Kids program teaches life skills and positive values as well as martial arts movements. The building blocks for our system are monthly themes like these:

  • Goals
  • Courtesy
  • Loyalty
  • Integrity
  • Attitude
  • Honor
  • Respect
  • Perseverance
  • Self-Control

In addition to monthly themes, our system includes the unique victory patch. We use the "star system," placing stars on your child's Victory patch as a reward for good behavior at the ATA Martial Arts center, at school, and at home. Kids may receive colored stars for the following accomplishments:

    Gold: Academic progress
    Silver: Special performance awards (tasks at home, community service)
    Blue: Monthly themes and behavior in class
    Red: Acts of courage (tournaments, extracurricular activities)
