Karate Classes for Kids Aged 4 and Up
Unlock the key to better focus and greater confidence!
As a parent, you know the enormous potential your child has within. But sometimes you worry they won’t make the most of their natural gifts.
Maybe your child can’t focus long enough to get things done. Maybe he doesn’t have enough self-control. Or maybe she’s shy and plagued by self-doubt.
That’s where martial arts can give your child an edge.
We help children reach their peak potential in life
At Urban Martial Arts, we’re passionate about what we do because every day, we see exactly how life-transforming the study of martial arts can be.
Our kids karate program is unique in that we combine both a world-class martial arts curriculum and a world-class character development curriculum.
Because of the in-depth martial arts training our students receive, they regularly take top rankings at regional and national karate tournaments.
But we believe that martial arts isn’t just about physical skills.
It’s also about developing character.
That’s why we’ve teamed up with Dr. Robyn Silverman, one of the country’s leading child development experts, to create an outstanding character development curriculum for our students.
In order to move through our belt rank system, students have to meet requirements for both the physical and the character portions of our curriculum.
Are we the right program for your family?
If you’re deeply committed to helping your child reach their peak potential in all aspects of life, then Urban Martial Arts will be a great fit.
But if you don’t have any clear goals for your child and you just want an activity to fill up some free time, we’re not the right program for you.
Because at Urban Martial Arts, our mission is to train black belts. We are an educational institution, not a casual activity center.
Though our classes are fun and fast-paced, our curriculum is rigorous and therefore we demand commitment from both students and their families.
Did you know? Our karate program can…
Enhance your child’s focus
Karate helps kids focus better because learning new kicks, blocks, and forms takes concentration. Children also learn how critical it is to pay attention to their opponent’s movements.
Build up your child’s confidence
Martial arts builds up children’s confidence so that they are able to project an aura of strength and ensure that they are not perceived by bullies as easy targets.
Improve your child’s discipline
Karate provides children with a clear-cut and consistent structure of discipline that helps them learn which types of behavior are acceptable and which are not.
Help your child treat others with greater respect
At Urban Martial Arts, we teach children that everyone deserves respect, and that no one deserves to be mistreated. Also, if they want to be respected by others, they first must learn to respect themselves.
Increase your child’s capacity for self-control
Karate helps kids become more aware of their own thoughts and emotions, and trains them to control negative impulses that will stop a negative situation from spiraling into conflict or violence.
Develop your child’s leadership skills
At Urban Martial Arts, we teach students to be leaders, not followers. As they rise through belt ranks, students also come to understand the importance of helping newer students and being a model that others want to emulate.
Teach your child to defend himself
Self-defense techniques are a core part of our martial arts curriculum. When children know how to defend themselves, they will naturally project a much more confident image and thus, not come across as an easy target for bullies.
