Program for children ages 7-13

Senior Master Babin’s Karate for Kids & Black Belt Academy provides a unique educational opportunity that builds clear minds and strong bodies through age-based curriculum.  To understand our program, consider that 5th graders don’t do the same thing that 1st graders do, and high school seniors don’t do the same thing that 5th graders do.   We apply that concept not only to physical training, but also to life skills and leadership training so that the activities and method of instruction match the level of the learners. The result is a completely separate program for preschoolers—TINY TIGERS TAEKWONDO—a separate program for elementary age children—KARATE FOR KIDS—and a separate program for adults and teens—SONGAHM TAEKWONDO.    Here’s what happens in KARATE FOR KIDS:

karate for kids, kids karate, kids karate classesAre you looking for an all-around children’s activity, one that will teach your child not only health and fitness, but also safety and self-defense?    The KARATE FOR KIDS class uses karate-based exercises such as blocking, striking, and kicking in a fun, structured setting to teach a positive attitude toward exercise.   Karate can be a lifelong endeavor that makes a huge contribution to your overall well-being.   The actual physical moves (blocks, strikes, kick) apply directly to self-defense, and your karate kid will also experience the WWW.KIDZNPOWER.NET safety lessons, designed to prevent abduction and molestation and help children manage the schoolyard bully.

And wouldn’t it be great if the KARATE FOR KIDS class also helps you teach confidence and self-control?   Look no further because KARATE FOR KIDS in Mesa is that kind of experience.   Children develop confidence when they work in a structured classroom.   This structure allows them to anticipate what will happen; they say to themselves, “I know what to do!    I know what to say.”  And their level of participation rises.  As they participate more, they develop more confidence, and participate even more, creating and upward spiral toward success!

And there’s more!  Your child’s academic performance will improve because of better focus and concentration.   Focus begins with getting still, and one of the first lessons in KARATE FOR KIDS is standing still or “standing like a black belt.”  Your child will learn to “listen with the eyes AND the ears.”  From this simple beginning, we very slowly increase demands on concentration until you are proudly watching your KARATE KID earn a black belt after a few short years of training.    This ability to focus, concentrate, and persevere directly transfers to schoolwork.

With most children’s activities, the learning stops when the activity ends. At Karate for Kids, our goal is to teach children how to take the life skills we teach and put them to use in their lives at home and in school.  Our “patch & star” reward program will help you reinforce our lessons at home and at school.   Because KARATE FOR KIDS is karate-based, we are proud to help children learn the values of discipline, courtesy, respect, and self-control. Using our weekly progress reports, you can continue the lessons at home in a fun and exciting way. Each time your KARATE KID turns in a positive homework sheet, we reward him/her in front of the entire class, helping reinforce good behavior!

We also understand that sometimes our children have trouble displaying these values. So if your child needs a little extra parental support, we’re here to work side-by-side with you, to make sure your child is right on track!

Your child can experience these invaluable life lessons at Senior Master Babin’s Karate for Kids & Black Belt Academy.

“When I talk to parents about martial arts, I tell them to come to KARATE FOR KIDS MESA.   We’ve been to other schools and we know there is a difference.  At KARATE FOR KIDS MESA, the expectations for students are high, the staff and instructors communicate well with parents and kids alike, and I can see a real connection between the things my daughter learns in class day to day, week to week and month to month.”
– Norma Lohide

“KARATE FOR KIDS MESA creates such greater discipline and focus.  It gives them the confidence to go out and do what they want.  The program creates a more well-rounded person.  It’s not just about punching and kicking.  It is about values and morals and every day stuff that helps keep kids safe.”
– Kris & Neil Houston

“Words cannot express our gratitude to both of you, along with all of Sean’s instructors, for the tremendous patience, guidance, focus, and determination he’s been shown these last four years.  Thank you for all you’ve helped him become.  We are so happy you are part of his life.”
