Our karate for kids program (ATA Tigers) in Smyrna is a martial arts program specially designed for kids ages 4 - 6.
Parents want their child to learn how to focus, to develop self discipline, and to develop self confidence. However, at 4-6 years of age kids just want to play. Our tigers curriculum is designed to accomplish both. Our instructors are masters at turning taekwondo training into games that keep kids engage as they learn. Students are rewarded with stars they collect on their bag tag. When a student collects 25 starts they are given a new bag tag of a different color. As students get close to completing their current tag they get very excited about the prospect of getting a new "higher level" tag.
We all know that Kids LOVE cartoons. To help keep students engage in the training, each week we feature a different ATA Tiger character. Students love learning about all the different characters each week. Each week we warm up for class with the favorite game of that week's character. On Tuesday, students can earn stars by answering trivia questions. But, the most exciting day of the week is "Tattoo" Thursday. On this day, students get a temporary tattoo of that week's character.
Tiger classes are held Monday - Thursday from 4:30 PM - 5:00 PM and on Saturday from 10:30 AM - 11:00 AM.
Enrollment is $250 for the first month. This include training equipment, the first annual membership fee, and the first month's tuition. Each additional month is $110. We offer discounts for multiple family members.
Unlike most other martial art schools, we do not require a contract. We also do not charge a color belt testing fee.
