Karate 4 Kids Programs

At ATA Martial Arts, we are not interested in just teaching self-defense, we are interested in the complete personal development of each student.  Individual attention is a feature of each and every class, allowing all students to progress quickly and confidently toward their personal goals.  Our Instructors take their responsibility serious as role models for younger students, teaching them the importance of strong character, leadership and good values.

Our Courses are safe and specialized programs designed exclusively for children.  Your child will work with other children of their age, size, and skill level under well-supervised conditions.  At ATA Martial Arts, all of our internationally certified instructors follow our philosophy that Every Kid is a Winner and Every Kid is special.  Our goal is to introduce your child to an ongoing lifetime method of improving their self-concept and confidence.  We do not teach them to fight or be a bully.

Tiny Tiger Program

atatinytigersThe Tiny Tiger program was developed specifically for preschool children (ages 4-6).  This program offers children a strong foundation in essential character qualities such as courtesy, respect and discipline.  In addition, the program is designed to improve children’s motor skills and enhance their ability to focus and follow directions.  All classes are taught using the most safe, fun and exciting instruction methods available for this age group.  This program works in conjunction with the Karate for Kids program, thereby emphasizing the same important life skills themes and value system.

Tiny Tigers have their own unique victory patch and “Victory Stars.” Stars are earned in the same way as the Karate for Kids program, with slight modifications in recognition of the preschool age of the child. Four different colored victory patches of the Tigers are the same as the Karate for Kids patches. Upon graduation from the Tiny Tigers program into the “Junior” or “Big Kid” program, Tigers are rewarded by the opportunity to wear the “Big Kids” or “Karate for Kids” patch.

Karate for Kids Program





The karate for kids program focuses on the same life skills as the tiny tiger program while catering them towards this older age group.  This program put more emphasis on goal setting, integrity and discipline.  This help students learn to use goal setting and make good decisions based on these skills that are increasingly valuable later in life.

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. ATA's Karate for Kids program is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to the technical skills of traditional Taekwondo. The building blocks for our system are monthly themes such as:

GOALS -- “Things you work towards”
PERSEVERANCE -- “Never giving up”
COURTESY -- “Showing good manners”
HONOR -- “Earning another’s respect”
LOYALTY -- “To be faithful”
SELF-CONTROL -- “Controlling your actions”
RESPECT -- “To be considerate of people, places, and things
INTEGRITY -- “Doing the right thing even when no one is watching”
ATTITUDE -- “The way you feel about something”
DISCIPLINE -- “To obey what is right”
CONFIDENCE -- “Believing in yourself”
FOCUS -- “Keeping your mind on your target"

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 completion. Kids may receive the following stars for the following deeds:

Gold --Straight A's, Honor roll, or significant improvement
Silver -- Special Performance Awards
Blue -- Monthly themes, weekly lessons, classroom performance
Red -- Tournament participation

Karate for Kids develops greater self-esteem, discipline, and leadership skills while learning basic self-defense maneuvers.
