The children’s martial arts program at Impact Martial Arts of Austin teaches life skills, fitness, self-defense and so much more!
The martial arts are about much more than hand-to-hand combat and self-defense. We help children learn the 6 tenets of Taekwondo; these tenets are courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, indomitable spirit and victory. Learning these valuable traits is a great start in your child’s journey to having a successful life. Everything that they do now lays the foundation for tomorrow. These life-skills are foundational and can really impact your child’s behavior towards you, other adults, their peers and their work in and out of school.
Age Appropriate Classes
One size does not fit all! We have two different age groups for children. These two age groups have similar, but different needs. Our regular kids’ class starts at six years old. Before that, we have our Little Dragons class; this class is designed for preschool and kindergarten age (3-6 years) kids. Younger children obviously have different needs than older kids so we work to meet these needs. Younger kids need a faster pace that focuses on learning gross motor skills, balance, left and right, how to stand/sit still, and many other things. The older kids need all of these things also and we can go more in depth technically. With our approach, the different age groups learn faster and have more fun than if they were all together.
Nationally Certified Instructors
Our staff is great! Our instructors have all received professional training on how to teach children and are certified through the United Taekwondo Alliance. Our program has clear goals set, and our instructors help the kids to reach them. We love to meet and work with new students! We want every student and parent to feel comfortable when they walk in our school. It is our passion to convey the benefits of karate to everyone in Austin.

Children Martial Arts Levels
You can customize your child’s martial arts experience by choosing between three different levels of programs. Children can just come in and get a great grip on the basic martial arts techniques or they can go deeper. Kids can train all the way to black belt and beyond. Tournaments are available, but not required, through the United Taekwondo Alliance. Our school also regularly places students on the U.S. Taekwondo team. This is available for our best kids martial arts students. We even provide instructor training for students that want to become instructors.
