Ages 7-12

Give your child the best tools to succeed. Kids Classes are designed for ages 7-12

We use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students. Our emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self-confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self-discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.

They Learn to Protect Themselves

Teaching your child self-protection from bullies and predators gives you both peace of mind. In life, lots of people and things can be intimidating, which often makes a person, especially a child, fearful and unwilling to try new things. When children feel secure and unafraid, they are willing to do more and learn more.

Perform better in life, school and beyond
Martial arts teaches self-discipline, a needed trait to accomplish anything worthwhile. Self-discipline and confidence are the cornerstones of all success. Giving your child the gift of self-discipline will help him or her excel now and into adulthood.
They will want to be helpful.
Martial Arts teaches kids that helping is important. Kids see and hear the positive reinforcement and rewards that come with helping around our dojang, and that naturally transfers to home and school.
They will develop their social skills.
With smart phones, computers, and television, many kids have very little chance to learn and practice true social skills. They often feel dejected when they do not receive the same instant gratification from other kids and adults that they receive from electronics and computer games. Tang Soo Do was developed hundreds of years ago when the only way to communicate was in person, and so were many of the classroom traditions. Martial Arts Training will help your child learn how to navigate social relationships.
Healthy self-respect and respect for others.
Self-respect and respect for others are needed to get along with people. We live in a world that in many cases is divided. We all have values that are important to us. However, being able to peacefully dialog and work together requires self-respect and respect for others. Tang Soo Do has a long tradition of teaching mutual respect.







Increased confidence & self-esteem

Confidence and self-esteem are what give children the belief that they can accomplish what they set their minds to. No one can do anything if they have decided in advance they will fail. Kids beam with confidence when they train in Tang Soo Do martial arts. They can feel themselves getting stronger, faster and more proficient at the skill of self-defense.
