Karate for Kids

Karate for Kids teaches children as young as seven the basics of self-defense, along with so much more! Your child will learn respect, determination, dedication, and confidence—qualities that will help him or her to achieve success in all areas of life. Students will be introduced to kicking, punching, and blocking while learning the appropriate use for those skills. At Buckingham’s ATA Black Belt Academy and Karate for Kids, our focus is protection—not fighting.

This course is great for beginners! Our instructors will work with your child individually to ensure he or she can gain the skills and confidence needed to progress. Your child will have fun making new friends while learning important life skills.

Through an organized belt ranking system, you child will learn goal-setting and accomplishment as he or she strives for the next level. Time and time again we have seen these skills transfer to the classroom and beyond. We love that this program can help your child achieve more at school and at home.

Classes are 45 minutes long and we recommend attending twice per week. If you’re ready to get your child started on the right track, or if you have any questions, feel free to give us a call.

5 stars

We are so happy to be at this school! My son was the quiet kid nobody hung out with and was teased at school. He has been coming to class for almost a year and he has come out of his shell, attends school functions, made so many friends and has more self confidence than I have seen in a long time. Mr and Mrs Buckingham care for these kids' health and safety. My son had to miss class due to health and injury reasons; we received calls checking on him and had a very warm welcome when he returned. Mrs Buckingham makes class fun and keeps it interesting. I would recommend anyone looking for a Tae Kwon Do class to come check out this school!
