Taekwondo Classes for Children
Our kids martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and individualized to help each child learn more effectively.
The overarching goal of NTA Taekwondo is to build our students’ self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our students’ accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well. Learning a martial art is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness. Our emphasis goes far beyond just learning the physical moves and martial arts techniques. At NTA Taekwondo Frisco, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.
We focus on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.

The Powerful Words Program
Classes at NTA Taekwondo end with group discussions and role-playing exercises. We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive way. Using our “Powerful Words” curriculum, we discuss topics that include:
- Avoiding conflicts
- Dealing with bullies
- Mental self defense
- Proper respect for adults
- Stranger awareness
- Respect for self and others
- Saying no to drugs and peer pressure
These valuable life lessons help our students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.
