Karate for Kids
The ATA of Valdosta, GA Karate for Kids program is a great way to instill virtues like integrity, courtesy, and respect in children. The American Taekwondo Assocition’s state of the art Karate programs are proven tools to help teach children valuable life lessons. Some of the skills and values we foster are respect, self-discipline, self-control, and the ability to safely defend themselves when needed. These life skills and attributes help each child achieve a “Personal Victory” in Martial Arts – and in life! Our professional instructors are equipped with these same skills and values as a result of their own training, and pass them on to children in our Karate for Kids programs to promote their progression through adolescence into adulthood.
ATA of Valdosta serves the Lowndes County area with the best Karate classes in the region and state. The Karate for Kids programs are defined by age appropriate programs and classes specifically designed to promote physical development, while expanding the mental capabilities of younger Karate kids in the family. Guiding, gauging, and rewarding training results, and establishing goals within the Karate For Kids program, carry over to many other areas in the students’ lives. Establishing dedication to completing an activity and meeting the goals are important parts of the program.
Our youth students and their peers are given the vital tools needed to experience positive growth. Our top-rated Martial Arts programs help develop and establish core values that help shape self-reliant, compassionate, and capable leaders in life. The program of self-improvement and leadership offered at ATA Valdosta can ultimately be a key turning point for many children. It’s not hard to see the impact Karate lessons can have on young people who need more confidence from within, by creating that “Personal Victory” thru Martial Arts.
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”. The Karate for Kids system is based on a lifetime learning concept in addition to technical skills. The building blocks for our system are monthly themes such as:
- Self Awareness
- Self-Esteem Dedication
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 competition. 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, Testing|
Four different colored Victory Patches are available to accommodate all the stars that can be earned by a high achieving Karate Kid:
