As a member of the American Taekwondo Association (ATA), Back’s ATA Karate for Kids embraces the innovative nature of Song Ahm Taekwondo while continuing the teachings of its rich and prestigious tradition.
Kids can take advantage of the physical and mental benefits resulting from martial arts training in a safe, controlled environment. At Back’s Karate for Kids, students may begin training as early as 4 years old and classes are structured with each student’s age and ability in mind. Our ultimate goal is to instill into students discipline, courtesy, respect, perseverance, personal victory, confidence, and leadership.
Tiny Tiger Taekwondo
Class Times: Thursdays at the Clarksville Community Center, 6:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Children aged 4-6 can begin their journey into Song Ahm Taekwondo through Back’s Tiny Tiger program. Our central theme is, “Every kid is a winner, every kid is special”. This theme is present in every aspect of Tiny Tiger taekwondo. Every student is encouraged to do their best.
Tiny Tigers get a jump-start by learning at a young age a basic foundation that carries over into everyday life. In addition to learning punches and kicks, Tiny Tigers learn to listen and pay attention, respect themselves and others, follow instructions, build self-confidence and begin to develop leadership skills.
Karate for Kids
Class Times: Thursdays at the Clarksville Community Center, 7:00 p.m. – 7:45 p.m.
In the Karate for Kids program, children ages 7 and up learn the same skills as the Tiny Tigers, and expand on them. They work on developing responsibility and courtesy, as well as perseverance and leadership. Along with these life skills, they learn self-defense through various taekwondo techniques and applications. This instills self-confidence in them, while improving their coordination, balance and flexibility.
Taekwondo is essentially an individual sport, but students also gain the benefit of cooperating as a team. Each student is taught to encourage each other, resulting in a camaraderie and respect among all of the students.
