Kids Martial Arts
Many parents enroll their kids thinking martial arts is simply self-defense… However, our programs benefit kids in so many other ways. Taekwondo helps kids stay in shape, release stress and even assists in calming kids with ADD / ADHD. Plus, every class is a ton of fun!
From focusing, to goal setting, to self-discipline, to self-respect – kids emerge from our program changed for the better. And their parents couldn’t be happier.
Kids Programs Available
Little Tigers – Designed for beginners from ages 4-5

Kids Beginners – Designed for beginners from ages 6-9
This class provides an introduction to the basic techniques of blocking, kicking and forms, while increasing strength, flexibility, coordination and cardiovascular fitness.

At Polaris Taekwondo, our students are taught that through dedicated, intense work, any goal in life is achievable.
Kids TKD – Designed for more experienced students, ranging in age from 6-9
After successfully learning the basics of blocking, kicking and forms, your child’s time in Taekwondo will become more intense and exciting! We understand the need for discipline, as well as fun, in working with our young people. Students will learn effective kicking and punching techniques as well as proper etiquette as young ladies and gentlemen. We do this by focusing on the tenets of Taekwondo (courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit) while teaching our classes.
