Many children enjoy training in the martial arts for many different reasons. Some enjoy the sport side and compete in tournaments while others enjoy a physical activity they can do with other children without being in a team. So what benefits are there?
I try very hard to teach at a level suitable for children, concentrating on the Revolution TKD syllabus. However, it is generally unreasonable to expect an eight-year-old to progress through the belt system at the same rate as an adult, so please bear with me if I encourage them to wait for the next grading. If you speak to most blue or red belts they will tell you they had to wait longer than the set time at some stage in their training.
Some children are more interested in performing “Karate kid” style jumping kicks around the training hall rather than learning martial arts properly, I generally punish any messing about with press-ups or similar exercises. For the safety of the other children I will terminate the training of persistent offenders.
However most children are keen and eager to learn and after four to five years you could look forward to having a Black Belt in the family.
They must be at school. Generally from 4 years but they must be in the appropriate class. Call us to make sure.
Jogging bottoms and t-shirt will be fine. We train in bare feet.
We run through all school holidays however we do shut down for Christmas.

My kiddo has been doing TKD with Teiann in the Tigers group for a couple of years know. They absolutely love going, it's the only non-negotiable after school activity! Teiann is so kind and patient, but at the same time manages to maintain absolute respect and control over a bunch of often rambunctious kids! My kid has learnt so much about respect and discipline and has also gained so much confidence in their physical abilities and strength. Would strongly recommend!
