Teaching children to know right from wrong is one of the toughest challenges parents have to face.
You want your child to have the tools to succeed in life, but protecting them from peer pressure, bullying and internet predators can make any parent feel overwhelmed with anxiety and stress.
Through training, children get proper exercise and learn to set and achieve goals. Instructors work together with parents to establish good training habits in children both inside class and out.
Also, the balanced movements found in Choi Kwang-Do work to provide children with the physical development they need to counteract the effects of today's vast amount of electronic media by stimulating the central nervous system, muscular system, and skeletal system.
The good news is that at Greca Academy of Choi Kwang-Do in Belleville, our kids martial arts program is the perfect companion to help you raise a strong, confident leader, teaching confidence, focus & self-defense skills.

Our students regularly go on to join top universities and become community leaders. The values they learn during their martial arts journey are the same you teach at home and last a lifetime.
Social interaction teaches kids how to effectively work as part of a team.
Martial arts helps improve coordination and is an excellent form of exercise.
Building healthy habits early on can help prevent obesity and diabetes later in life.
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.
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.
The traditional nature of 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.

We find parents and children enjoy training in an activity they can all do together. In fact, many parents that initially bring their child in for Choi Kwang-Do later join themselves and start training.
Absolutely not! We have classes for all ability levels and no previous experience is required. More experienced members help new ones, and we make sure that everyone feels right at home on their first day of class.
Even though we practice self-defense moves and we do practice partner reaction drills, your child will not be "fighting" anyone or getting hurt. Of course there is always a potential for injury with any sports activity, however, our instructors take great care to make sure everyone practices at their own pace without getting injured.
Our martial arts classes' primary goal is to make sure our students have fun in a playful, safe environment. Come and see a class for yourself - the kids have a blast and our instructors do too.
No, our classes are a good mix of boys and girls of all fitness levels. Beginners train alongside some of the more experienced kids, helping each other out in a fun team environment.
