Karate for Kids

karate for kids cary morrisvilleFrom the very first class, Balance Martial Arts has direct application into the everyday lives of our students. While our children’s program promotes physical fitness and a practical method of self-defense, we foster a greater appreciation for self-control and mental awareness.

The physical aspects of your child’s training will improve balance, endurance, range of motion, coordination, flexibility, and stamina. The mental aspects of your child’s training will develop self-respect, confidence, awareness, and focus.

Whether your child is home-schooled or enrolled in the school system, our classes provide a strong social environment which encourages individual development within the group.

Balance Martial Arts’s tenets of love, respect, and obedience are translated into the following results of our children’s program:


We develop a child’s competence and ability to handle difficult situations by helping them focus on their individual strengths. Balance Martial Arts empowers children to make decisions.


Our belt system builds confidence through the recognition of achievement in an environment which is fair, supportive, and founded on integrity. We assess appropriate goals for each individual child and provide honest, authentic praise.


Our family atmosphere develops closer ties between parents, children, and siblings. We foster healthy relationships that reinforce positive messages.


Balance Martial Arts teaches a solid set of morals and values. While our black belts set an excellent example to all students, selected members of our youth program provide positive role models for the younger children.


Our students appreciate their unique value in society. We stress the benefits of a generous spirit and the importance of serving others by creating opportunities where children can contribute in a specific way.


Through better control of the body, better control of breathing, and better control of the mind, your child’s coping skills will increase exponentially. At Balance Martial Arts, we focus on positive behaviors to handle life’s stresses and anxieties by exercising strong minds, building healthy bodies, and nurturing a happy spirit.


Our school teaches traditional karate and the disciplines associated with martial arts. Our students learn that, through their karate training, they have the ability to make a difference. Positive actions bring positive results.
In a world that often seems increasingly complex, we teach children to be confident in their own ability. Training at Balance Martial Arts helps strengthen character and solidify family ties. We develop coping skills and a sense of community.
