Martial Arts Classes in Lake Havasu City
Karate for Kids
The purpose of our Karate for Kids program is to teach self defense, conﬁdence, ﬁtness, goal setting and character development (discipline, belief, respect, self esteem, honesty, integrity). The curriculum includes forms, self defense, board breaking, weapons and sparring. To encourage we use a belt ranking system with stripes on our belt to help set goals. And bag tags with stars to encourage showing our black belt behavior outside the classroom. We recommend beginners take 2-3 classes a week, mid rank take 3-4 classes a week and high rank 3-5 classes a week. The ATA sponsors tournaments that all students can compete and we have special class to help them prepare. We also have a special class for students who want to learn leadership skills and/or help in class.
The main focus in our Tiger class (3-6 year olds) is listening, paying attention and following directions. We strive for knowledge in the mind, honesty in the heart, strength in the body, to make good friends, to obey our parents and to behave like a black belt leader. We work on simple self defense such as: what if someone tries to grab us? what if someone picks us up? what if someone comes to our door? what if we get lost? The parents are a big part of our Tiger program.
Adult Taekwondo classes are geared for those ages 13 and older. We have students in their late 70s. Many of these students wish to do class with their families. Since we are instructing the same material, they are allowed to do this. Of course, we often add little bits that would be more practical for them. We also oﬀer classes that are for adults.

Self-defense is a serious subject, but this is not the army, it is a classroom and we have fun while learning. We do a very practical self defense based on several styles of martial arts. We listen to what are students need: protection when leaving a night job, getting ready to go oﬀ to college, bullies at school, … Then we work on what can be done to protect yourself in this situation. We strive to make you feel conﬁdent to handle things.
