LIL KICKS is tailored especially for 6, 7 and 8 year-olds. It gives young
students a fun way to achieve a solid foundation in martial arts, and
infuse some important life skills, such as discipline, self-control,
and respect for others. And lots of fun, creative exercise and physical
No belt promotion is expected, and there are no test fees. A student
who "outgrows" LIL KICKS at age 9 and plans to continue their martial
arts training with us will move up to our regular classes. We believe
that kids in this young age group benefit from an introduction to the
many positive behaviors which are taught and reinforced in all levels
of martial arts training:
-- Respect for Others
A strong emphasis will be placed on teaching kids to have respect for other students,
adults, the instructors, and school.
-- Coordination & Balance
Practicing stances, punches and kicks will improve coordination and balance.
-- Self Confidence
Using your voice: the Kiup!
The Kiup serves many important functions. When properly timed it can be used to
distract an opponent, and create an opening for your attack. Psychologically, it increases
your strength, courage, and ﬁghting spirit. The Kiup should not be a scream, but rather a
deep, loud, and abrupt sound. In training, kiups are executed on the last strike in a
series of techniques and used to emphasize major movements in a pattern.
It also assists in breath control.
-- Discipline & Self Control
Starting at an early age will help a child learn to focus their attention on a task, be
attentive and follow directions.
-- Basic Korean Terminology
The meaning of Tae Kwon Do, how to count to ten, important phrases, and names of
basic stances and kicks.
NOTE: These students do NOT participate
in any sparring or physical contact.
Parents are encouraged to watch -- bring your camera, enjoy a
cup of coffee! And remember, we have classes for you, too!
