ATA’s Goal: To teach your child to be safe, follow instructions, and improve concentration & socialization in a fun, positive atmosphere.
American Taekwondo Association’s (ATA) fast-paced, fun-filled classes are approximately 30 minutes long. The goal of the Tigers Program is to learn through having fun in structured and safe Martial Arts classes. In this program we understand that each child learns and grows differently. Each child moves at his or her own pace and can feel the satisfaction of a personal victory. Classes become more challenging as each child demonstrates the readiness to accept more complex skill.
The ATA Tiger curriculum program was developed specifically for preschool age children ages 4 through 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 pay attention and follow directions.
This curriculum should provide students with the most fun and exciting training methods available for this age group. This program works in conjunction with other programs, thereby emphasizing the same important monthly themes and value system. Upon graduation from the ATA Tigers program into the “Karate for Kids” or “Big Kid” program, Tigers are rewarded by the opportunity to wear the “Big Kids” or “Karate for Kids” patch.
The rank and testing system used by the Tigers is slightly different than others as well. Tigers can earn eight collectible animal patches to display on the belts as follows: Tiger for orange belt; Cheetah for yellow; Lion for camo; Eagle for green; Phoenix for purple; Dragon for blue; Cobra for brown; Panther for red. All eight patches, as earned, can be displayed on the child’s uniform.
The ATA Martial Arts Tigers program is the perfect choice for your preschooler or kindergartner. Your child will have fun while learning developmental skills, all within a safe, healthy and exciting environment. Our program works unlike any other children’s activity simply because it has the perfect blend of fun and learning.
Your child’s classes will be lead by a professional specially trained to provide motivational instruction. Each instructor is carefully selected and undergoes extensive testing in order to receive certification credentials. Instructors are required to be recertified on a regular basis to assure your child receives the highest quality of instruction.
