Martial arts lessons provide invaluable developmental opportunity for all ages. The benefits for children between 3 and 6 years of age, referred to as Early Childhood, can set a child on the path to life-long success.
The fun, high energy environment and dynamic teaching style of a martial arts class designed for Early Childhood students helps every student stay engaged. When a child is engaged and energized they more easily learn and retain important life-skills such as Respect, Courtesy, Self-Control and Focus. While traditional pre-schools and Kindergarten programs have some success teaching these concepts, a martial arts program designed to be fun and inspiring can achieve a much greater impact and leave the young child ready to excel in school. Young martial arts students often report that they enjoy school more than their non-martial arts classmates!
Our ATA Success Tigers Program curriculum includes story books and other materials that have been designed to help you take these lessons off of our mats and into your homes. ATA Success Tigers gives your child the tools to succeed at home and in school, and you the ability to help them reach their goals!
PARENT REVIEW by Charlie H.
|“This is a great studio with AWESOME instructors -they are great with kids and will not accept anything but their best - and they show great compassion and love to all kids no matter their ability!!”|
Martial Arts classes go far beyond simply teaching the Life Skill and Physical Skill concepts. The experiences gained on the mats and the careful coaching of the Instructor can help a child build Confidence and Self-Esteem. A child who displays Confidence is less likely to be bullied. A child who knows they are valued, that they are special and cared for, are more likely to defend themselves should the need arise. These two elements of a strong child are also critical to their future success!
In class you will be encouraged to join in oportunities to participate in all aspects of your child's training and development. During these Parent Participation Drills you and your child will be learning to look you in the eyes when you speak to them, to wait respectfully when you are on the phone and many other practical life skills.
Your child’s self-esteem will grow as they earn High Fives and Learning Stripes each week and Rank Belts and Animal Patches as they complete various levels of mastery every 8 to 9 weeks. Our ATA Tiger Card System we use is specially designed to motivate your child to continue the life skill behaviors well passed the edges of our mats. You’ll feel empowered as you use the monthly Newsletter and Life Skill Activity at home with your child!
PARENT REVIEW by Charlotte (Jacob's Mom)
|"I have and will continue to recommend Pilsung and TKD to friends and family because it has done so much for Jacob inside and out. The staff love Jacob add much as we do and it shows in how they work with him.”|
Every child who participates in martial arts during the formative years of Early Childhood also gains valuable awareness of their body through coordination, control, and fitness. Identification of spacial relationships such as front, back, right and left develop more quickly through the careful coaching of a well-trained martial arts instructor. Students also enjoy a stronger sense of balance and enhanced fine motor skill develoment as they progress through a program designed to help them develop on their level.
The purpose of our ATA Success Tigers Program is to help your child be their very best. Our desire to see our youngest students succeed in life. We are grateful to be a valuable part of the village helping you raise your child to reach their potential in life!
