Karate for Kids is a program specifically designed for children.  Kids learn much differently from adults, and the karate for kids program reflects that.  Karate for kids is a combination of several martial arts, and has a comprehensive life skills program as well.  Kids will learn taekwondo, karate, and even a little brazilian jiujitsu.  In addition they will have life skills such as respect, focus, and attitude.  Karate for kids also has a merit system for behavior at home, school, and their community.

The long term goal for karate for kids is to have well disciplined, focused, hard working goal achievers that pay it forward.  They can start to change themselves and their world right away!

The ATA has developed a program based on traditional Taekwondo called “Karate for Kids”. With over 30 years of research with childhood education and development specialists, the Karate for Kids Program is based in a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills.

The building blocks for our system are monthly themes such as:

Goals | Self-Control | Courtesy | Integrity | Friendship | Confidence | Self-Awareness | Self-Esteem | Perseverance | Self-Improvement | Respect | Dedication

In addition to monthly themes, our system includes the unique victory patch. Kids are rewarded special “Victory Stars.”  These different colored stars are rewarded for outstanding performance in karate class, school, home or at a tournament competition.

Four different colored Victory Patches are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by a high achieving Karate Kid:

Blue: 0-24 Stars
Silver: 25-49 Stars
Gold: 50-99 Stars
Blue/Gold: 100+ Stars
