Martial Arts for Children (7-12)
Learning taekwondo is a physical and mental endeavor. Physically, taekwondo involves all major muscle groups to help your child develop physical strength, agility, and flexibility. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques.
At USTA Martial Arts, we use the lessons of taekwondo to help teach your child to set goals, work in a disciplined manner, and strive for success in their endeavors. A hearty taekwondo education instills equal doses of confidence and humility; it instructs children to treat others with respect, but also to stand up for themselves and what they believe in.
During the course of the year, we focus on topics that include the ability to focus and follow instructions, health habits, and kindness. Many of these topics build on foundations laid in our Little Tiger classes, meaning that children who begin the program at an early age will not lose their focus and habits as they grow older.
