Helping Parents Raise Confident Leaders Karate for Kids

Are You Looking for a Fitness Activity for Your Child That Can Also Help Them Succeed in Life?

Pre-school karate for kids classes are for children ages 3-6 and the karate for kids classes for children ages 7 through 12. The foundation of the martial arts curriculum is the ongoing review and development of life-skills such as positive mental attitude, high goal-setting, perseverance, self-control and confidence.

Training is designed to be fun and fulfilling for each student. This is because Taekwondo is an individual activity rather than a team sport. Therefore every student is an active and valuable participant in class. They work out with kids their own age and size under well-supervised conditions, and progress at their own pace.

Through personal growth and achievement, students advance with a martial arts belt rank but are also acknowledged for outstanding performance in martial arts class, school, home, special events, or in tournament competition.

What makes Kassebaum's Martial Arts different from other Martial Arts Schools? After beginning my martial arts journey in Lincoln, Nebraska, I began to see the positive impact it had on my life. For over 25 years we have brought that positive impact to our community through our students. It is my goal to create an enjoyable environment for students to learn self defense and improve their fitness while building confidence they can carry into their everyday lives.

--Chief Master Mike Kassebaum

MARTIAL ARTS TEACHES LIFE SKILLS A Strong Sense of Respect Martial arts teaches kids respect in their classes, whether they are taking a bow or waiting patiently for the next set of instructions. This sense of respect also helps kids improve their grades, while improving their listening skills at home and in school. Improve Focus and Self-Control Complex physical activities such as martial arts have proven to strengthen the brain’s neural networks, helping kids improve their focus and self-control. This can be especially beneficial for kids with ADD/ADHD. Learn Goal-Setting Skills Belt testing provides an excellent exercise for kids in learning how to set and achieve goals. Their self-esteem will continue to rise with each accomplishment as they watch their hard work pay off.
Our students regularly go on to join Ivy schools and become community leaders. The values they learn during their martial arts journey are the same you teach at home and last a lifetime.
