Overview

The 4-7 year old program is separated into two groups: Beginner and Intermediate/Advanced. The beginner group ranges in experience from zero to nine months. The goal of the beginner 4-7 year old group is to develop a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Tang Soo Do. We are not only trying to develop the young student’s physical ability but also develop their positive character traits.

At this age and experience level, special care is taken on developing motor skills, strengthening hand-eye coordination and developing balance. We also work on building confidence, socialization skills, respect for each other, and being courteous to each other.

The 4-7 year old beginner will not participate in the sparring component of the normal curriculum. They will start that component when they are promoted to the level of orange belt (approx. 9 months of training) and graduate to the 4-7 intermediate/advanced class schedule. Instead, the beginner will participate in a game portion of the end of class that helps them develop the physical component discussed in the above paragraph.

Students can start at any time!! Contact us to schedule your complimentary lesson.

Karate is an excellent mental and physical activity for people of all ages. Students can simply do what they are able to do given their own physical condition and abilities. There is no pressure to go beyond what you can safely achieve. You will improve your strength, balance, flexibility, endurance, and self-confidence through your participation in karate training.

Consistency is important in any activity. Training a minimum of 2 times a week is important for students to get the most out of the program and their development.

Sign ups are perpetual. You can start at any time.

Sparring is an important part of any Martial Arts training. However, for the younger students (4-7 year old students) sparring is not introduced into their curriculum until a strong foundation has been established with the beginning material. This is usually around 9 months into training. For the older students 8+, sparring is introduced around 1-2 months into training once the basics are retained. It is important to understand that the sparring component of class is introduced as the sport part of the art that is taught and is only practiced while being supervised by a certified instructor.
