STRUGGLE WITH THESE THINGS?
They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.
They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.
They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.
PARENTING YOUNG CHILDREN IS A REAL CHALLENGE.
You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.
Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.
The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.
RESULTS AND GROWTH WITH EVERY CLASS!
Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.
STUDYING MARTIAL ARTS BUILDS PHYSICAL COORDINATION AND CONTROL
Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.
They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.
YOUNG MARTIAL ARTS STUDENTS LEARN HOW TO FOCUS
Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.
The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.
MARTIAL ARTS HELPS KIDS LEARN TO DEAL WITH FRUSTRATION
Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.
The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.
KIDS WHO STUDY MARTIAL ARTS LEARN GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP
Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.
Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.
My kids LOVE master Hahn and his team. They are extremely friendly and have taught my son and daughter discipline and focus while having a lot of fun. If you are looking for a great after school activity, IMAC is a great option.
Great place to learn taekwondo. It’s in a convenient location and the atmosphere is welcoming. The instructors are great for adults and kids alike. The people here truly make the experience and help build a sense of community. This dojang is dedicated to teaching traditional taekwondo but in a super fun way.
Our daughter has been a student at Martial Arts Center for two years. We love the school. It is welcoming and she has learned so much. The instructors are wonderful and there is a high teacher student ratio. Taekwondo is very worthwhile for children in today’s world that is full of distractions. The school doesn’t just focus on the physical aspect of taekwondo but also the mental. They really try to model and explain the 5 tenets (self-control, integrity, perseverance, courtesy and indomitable spirit) of taekwondo for the students. This is one of the best sports for children and this is a great school.
My five year old son has been taking classes at IMAC for almost a year and absolutely loves it. He looks forward to every session. He is thrilled when he learns new moves and practices them at home. Every staff member at the school is supportive and works with the students closely to ensure they make progress. Grandmaster Hahn is so zen and commands respects from all his students. He is a pleasure to work with. As a parent, I love the art because it really teaches my son discipline and respect in a very organic manner. Try the introductory classes you will be sure to love it!
We could not ask for a better Martial Arts school for our 6 year old daughter! Over the past year, she has learned to focus better, support her fellow students, and work hard toward her goals. We are so proud of her achievements in taekwondo, but more importantly, she has learned to take pride in her own hard work. The instructors are incredibly patient and gentle with the kids, while holding them to a very high standard. The school offers a wonderful community of students and teachers, with many parents and children taking classes there together as a family. Master Hahn has a terrific team, and this school is an absolute NYC gem!
The instruction for children at IMAC is comprehensive, inclusive and organized. Kids may attend group thirty minute sessions 3x per week. Class size is always under 10 kids with 2 or sometimes 3 instructors teaching. All the instructors are patient but firm and do a great job keeping their students focused. Confidence building, agility and maintaining focus are all benefits of martial arts. We LOVE all of the instructors including Master Hahn the owner, Master William, Master Samson and Kasia. IMAC is definitely a hidden martial arts gem of in the Union Square area. It would be great to see their business grow further.
