We teach martial arts in a way that is engaging and fun! Many parents bring their kids to Silver Lining Taekwon-do with the goals of developing confidence and physical awareness for those growing bodies. Come to any class and you will see smiles and hear laughter as well as respect and focus. Parents and our community are an integral part of each class, helping your child connect what he/she learns to home and beyond. We offer two class levels: Lil’l Kickers martial arts (ages 4-6) and Kids martial arts (ages 7-12).
Classes are ongoing. You join at any time. Our instructors integrate new students easily into the class and give extra support to new students. We offer classes three times per week for each group, keeping in mind the busy schedules of many parents.
We do run on eight week cycles for the Lil’l Kickers, with belt graduation at the end of the cycle while students in our kids Taekwon-do program graduate to the next belt level once they demonstrate thorough knowledge of their curriculum and also by constantly applying the life skills they learn on the mat at home and beyond. Belt graduation is a great way to develop confidence and self-esteem as your child progresses to the next level. It is also a great way to teach students the importance of setting goals, work towards them and the satisfaction they get from accomplishing those goals. The time it also takes between belts is to ensure that students have enough time to master the required knowledge for their current belt level and also to learn about patience and the importance of the work ethic required to achieve goals.
Silver Lining Taekwon-do’s Lil’l Kickers program is a great way to introduce your child to the martial arts. It is also a great way to boost their confidence, memory and coordination and enhance listening skills, instill a sense of discipline and teach them the value of good focus. While participating in the Silver Lining Taekwon-do Lil’l Kickers program, kids will learn attributes that they will be able to apply to their training, but more importantly, tools that they will be able to use in real life.
The Lil’l Kickers will work on coordination, balance, fitness, and team work. In conjunction with discipline at home and at the school, you will see an improvement in your child.
Each week in the Lil’l Kickers program, we use different themes:
- Balance – Physical and mental
- Control – Physical and emotional
- Coordination – Improved motor skills and fewer injuries
- Discipline – Be self-motivated to do the right thing
- Fitness – Stay active and healthy
- Focus – Improve listening skills
- Memory – Build muscle memory
- Teamwork – Learn to work with others
While the Lil’l Kickers program teaches your child how to learn the martial arts with a heavy focus on the life skills Taekwon-do teaches, the kids program takes this further. In addition to these life skills, focus is also placed on the acquisition and proper application of techniques. This is very important to all of our staff members because our students’ safety is our primary objective.
This is not just a recreational program; it’s an exciting, enriching and rewarding journey — from no belt to black belt, from ambivalence to enthusiasm, from child to mature adolescent.
Along the way, they will learn skills that help develop focus at school, confidence to try new activities, respect for parents, teachers and peers, self-discipline and self-esteem. Our program provides many rewards, and we’re dedicated to helping your child experience all of them.
The Silver Lining Taekwon-do kids program builds tomorrow’s leaders with the following character traits:
- Hard working
- Goal oriented
