The main goals of our Karate Kids classes are to teach the full AmeriKick Karate Curriculum, develop skilled martial arts leaders and well rounded human beings. The ages range from 3-12 years and include beginner, intermediate, advanced and black belt levels.
The Karate Kids Curriculum includes a variety of traditional styles in addition to more contemporary modern martial arts. Your child will learn the kicks of Tae Kwon Do, the hand strikes of Boxing and Kung Fu, the blocks and punches of Shotokan, the self-defense of Kenpo and the take downs and ground defense of Judo. The Karate Kids Curriculum also includes Sport Karate training, weapons training, extreme martial arts, sparring and kickboxing training. All these components have been selected and designed over the past 50 years of AmeriKick to give your child the best training on their journey to Black Belt.
TINY TIGERS (ages 3 and 4)
AmeriKick's Tiny Tigers curriculum is specifically designed for kids aged 3 and 4. In our half-hour classes, children will develop basic motor skills through repetitive kicking and punching drills, tumbling and rolling, basic self-defense, and stretching.
LITTLE DRAGONS (ages 5 and 6)
AmeriKick's Little Dragons program is specifically designed for kids aged 5 and 6. In our half-hour curriculum-based karate classes, children will develop the skills required to advance to our youth beginner program: the ability to memorize, perform, participate in a classroom setting, listen/follow instruction, and practice individually at home. Classes focus on fundamental katas, self-defense techniques, self-discipline, and teamwork. Children will also learn goal setting through our junior belt ranking system.
YOUTH KARATE (ages 7-15)
AmeriKick's Youth Karate program is designed for kids aged 7 to 15. Our kenpo-based karate classes teach realistic self-defense, competition-style forms, and weapons (at the advanced level). Participation in sport-karate-style sparring sessions is required at the intermediate and advanced levels. These light-touch sessions are conducted under adult supervision and require AmeriKick-certified protective sparring gear. Kids learn goal setting through our full belt ranking system.
Beginner karate classes are 30 minutes in length; intermediate and advanced karate classes are 45 minutes. Find out if this karate class fits into your schedule.
