A Martial Arts Blueprint for Healthy Child Development

Tiny Tigers Program

Our Tiny Tigers program will help your child develop essential skills that they can apply to all areas of life, while having fun and socializing.

Are You Looking for a Fun Activity for Your Child

that also helps them prepare for the real world?

We understand how important choosing the right activity for your child is. It should not be so difficult and challenging.

Let's face it, it can be a bit overwhelming thinking about your child getting older so quickly. As much as you want to think they are prepared for school, every parent has the same questions. Are they ready to socialize with their new classmates? Will they stay focused on the teacher during class and keep up with the other kids?  

Our Tiny Tigers program is designed to enhance your kids ability to pay attention and follow directions.  In the age of sensory overload, this is a skill that will provide your kids with immediate results that will reflect positively on their academic work.

Parenting should not have to be a stressful task you face alone!

Let Academy Of Choi Kwang Do help you equip your child for success in the real world.

MARTIAL ARTS TEACHES
LIFE SKILLS
  • Positive Mental Attitude
  • High Goal-Setting
  • Respect & Self-Confidence

Learn Goal-Setting Skills

Belt testing provides an excellent exercise for kids in learning how to set and achieve goals. Their self-esteem will continue to rise with each accomplishment as they watch their hard work pay off.

Improve Focus and Self-Control

Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD.

A Strong Sense of Respect

The traditional nature of martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades, while improving their listening skills at home and in school.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    What Age Groups Are Available for Kids Martial Arts?
    Our Tiny Tiger program is ages 3-5, while our Kids Only class is ages 5-9. We also offer family classes for ages 5 and up!
    Does my child need to have any previous martial arts experience in order to participate?
    Absolutely not! We have classes for all ability levels and no previous experience is required. More experienced members help new ones, and we make sure that everyone feels right at home on their first day of class.
    I Love All the Benefits Such as Confidence, Self-Esteem, and Focus … But Will My Kid Have Fun?
    Our martial arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a social, supportive and safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - the kids have a blast and our instructors do too.
    Are There Long Membership Commitments?
    No. We offer fortnightly billing memberships that can be started and stopped at any time, as well as savings on longer plans.
    Will my child be learning how to “fight”?
    Even though we practice self-defense moves and we do practice some sparring drills, your child will not be "fighting" anyone or getting hurt. Of course there is always potential for injury with any sports activity, however, our instructors take great care to make sure everyone practices at their own pace without getting injured.
    Does My Child Need to Have Previous Experience or Any Particular Fitness Level to Enroll in Martial Arts Classes?
    No, our classes are a good mix of boys and girls of all fitness levels. Beginners train alongside some of the more experienced kids, helping each other out in a fun team environment.
