Programs for Kids ages 4-7

Martial Arts for kids - Tiny Tigers


The foundation of the Tigers curriculum is the education and development of life-skills such as positive mental attitude, high goal setting, perseverance, self-control and confidence.

Our ATA Tiger curriculum program was developed specifically for preschool-age children ages 4 through 7. 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 your child’s motor skills and enhance their ability to pay attention and follow directions. This program provides students with the most fun and exciting training methods available for this age group.

The rank and testing system used by our Tigers is slightly different than others as well. Tigers can earn head bands and belt ranks in order to mark their progress.


We understand how importance choosing the right activity for your child is.

One of the central tenets of all forms of the martial arts is an absolute focus on self-discipline. Kids with a martial arts background, however, are continually reminded of how essential self-discipline is.

Confidence comes with achievement, so your child’s self-esteem level will get a boost with every new move they master and every belt they earn. 

In order to master the skills being taught and advance through the belt ranks, your child will have to exercise superior listening skills.

Respect is not what you know, it’s what you do. Learning Songahm Taekwondo will teach your child that you earn respect by showing respect towards others. When attending classes, your child will be learning lessons in respect along with the exciting techniques and skills of Songahm Taekwondo.

Programs for Kids ages 8-13

Basic Program - Karate for Kids

Looking for a Fitness Activity for Your Child That Can Also Help Them Succeed in Life?

ATA Karate for Kids is a specialized program created exclusively for children ages 8 through 13 and teaches the fundamentals of martial arts. The foundation of the Karate for Kids curriculum is the education and development of life skills such as positive mental attitude, high goal-setting, perseverance, self-control, and confidence.

Karate for Kids training is designed to be fun and fulfilling for each student. This is because Taekwondo is an individual activity rather than a team sport. Therefore every student is an active and valuable participant in class. They work out with kids their own age and progress at their own pace. 

The ATA Karate for Kids program is perfect for parents looking for an activity that is not just great exercise but that also teaches their school-age children lessons they will use throughout their life. The way children learn and what motivates them is the reason we offer a program exclusively for children.

Since its introduction in 1986, the Karate for Kids program has helped children all over the world learn Discipline, Self-Esteem, and Respect. By combining the Discipline of traditional martial arts, learning Respect through life skill development, and the Self-Esteem gained through our unique reward system, your child will advance in the martial arts while reaching their fullest potential.

4 REASPONS Why you should choose Duer's ATA Martial Arts.

Thinking that martial arts instruction promotes violent behavior is justified if your only experience with the activity comes from television or movies. In fact, many defensive styles teach kids peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and emphasize the importance of avoiding a physical altercation.

Kids who don’t always thrive in highly social environments may find it easier to get to know people and make new friends when they’re in a room filled with peers who share a common interest. 

Enrolling an inactive child in such a physically demanding pastime not only discourages the sedentary lifestyle she’s used to, but also gives her an enjoyable activity that inspires her to keep moving.

Most forms of martial arts are based around an accomplishment system of colored belts that signify the wearer’s degree of skill. When your child strives toward each new belt, he’s learning valuable lessons about setting and reaching his goals.
