Martial Arts For Children 7-12 Years Old

Why ATA Martial Arts?

We know there are lots of activities available to choose from, and only 7 days in the week. As parents, it can be challenging trying to decide which activities will fit your schedule, are within your budget, will be fun, and which will be the most beneficial to your child.

Students begin martial arts training versus other activities for many reasons. Here is what parents tell us most often when they enroll their children to train at ATA.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to sign a long term contract?

We have a variety of membership financing options available. Beginners can choose from programs with 30 day billing cancellation.

How often should I attend classes?

To receive the maximum benefit of martial arts training students should attend two classes per week.

Do I have to attend the same classes each week?

No. You may attend any two classes for your age and rank listed on our schedule.

Will my child get hurt doing martial arts?

Martial arts injuries typically happen at the same frequency as other youth sports. At ATA, our staff takes student safety seriously. We offer easy to understand training, a padded workout floor, and highest quality safety equipment available.

Can my child do martial arts if they are not athletic?

Yes! Many children who don’t find success in team sports excel at martial arts. At ATA students learn at their own pace. The best part is that with martial arts, unlike team sports, your child can’t let anyone down. Everyone has a great time regardless of their athletic level.

Does my belt rank transfer if I move?

All ranks earned at ATA are recognized at all ATA Worldwide licensed schools throughout the world (Over 1000 locations).

How long does it take to get a black belt?

It typically takes about 4 years of ongoing training to earn an ATA first degree black belt.

Will martial arts training make my child more violent?

No. We teach students self defense as a tool for personal growth. They learn respect, discipline, self control, and to treat others the way that they would like to be treated.

What Parent’s are Saying

My daughter has been attending ATA in West Chester for a couple years and I wish I had enrolled her sooner! The instructors really take them time to help each student in a way that helps them improve and build confidence. There’s a strong base of goal setting, but not every student’s goal is the same and that it honored. I also love that their training doesn’t end at the door of their school, they help the kids recognize where they can be leaders in their schools, families, and communities. I know the self confidence and strength she has built here will serve her not only in taekwondo, but in her whole life.
