At What Age Can You Start Martial Arts?
Posted: July 05, 2017
One of the most common questions people have when they start investigating martial arts is what ages students can start. Because martial arts isn't as prevalent in many communities as activities like dance and baseball parents often find themselves spending some time finding out about the basics of what it means to get involved in a martial arts program.
Most martial arts schools have a variety of kids programs as well as adult programs. Here at ATA Excellence Martial Arts we offer two different kids programs as well as our adult program for our core program. The first of these programs is our ATA Tiger class. We offer this program for students ages 4 to 6.
The ATA Tiger program focus on teaching the core concepts of martial arts with an emphasis on life skills training as well as basic physical coordination and fitness. Children in this program will learn many of the same skills as our older students but at a slower pace and will spend more time working on the basics. It's understood by parents that the goal of our ATA Tiger program is first to teach respect, discipline, and confidence while encouraging fitness, coordination and self-defense.
