A Program for Children Ages 7 - 12
We aim to make every class at Akula Taekwondo the best martial arts instruction experience possible for kids in Novi, South Lyon, Lyon Township, Farmington Hills, Walled Lake, Wixom, Northville, and surrounding areas. Our Children’s Program includes instruction at three skill levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. Children may enroll in our martial arts program and begin learning at any time. We welcome kids who are new to martial arts, as well as those who have trained at other schools.
Children need a safe and welcoming place to expend their energy after school. And kids aged seven to twelve love our Taekwondo (Korean Karate) Children’s Program. Our Taekwondo kids set big goals, work hard, and follow-through to achieve them. They also have fun and make friends. The children’s successes give them the skills, confidence, and focus needed to succeed in school, at home, and on the playing field.
Character traits developed through traditional Taekwondo practice positively influence students’ work ethic, productivity, and behavior on and off the mat. Happier, more confident students lead to happier families, which lead to more cohesive communities.
We are committed to creating and maintaining an atmosphere of positive energy and respect at our dojang, and support each student in reaching his or her martial arts, fitness, and personal goals.
