Children & Martial Arts

Learn more about how your children can develop successful habits in martial arts: confidence, discipline & a positive attitude.

It's a Fantastic, Healthy Activity.   
Martial arts training, and especially taekwondo training, is an excellent activity for children to move around and learn how to be aware of their bodies. They not only develop coordination, balance, and agility, but they also learn positive social skills through challenging exercises and games closely linked with good manners.


It has Many Positive Effects.   
In addition to a safe environment, the Mount Shasta Martial Arts Program (MSMAP) strives to create a supportive and rewarding environment that invigorates the participants and refreshes their outlook towards many areas of their lives. Training with MSMAP enables participants to develop a positive attitude when facing challenges at home, school, and everywhere...and achieve really big things.


Educate your children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will, and you have done much to abolish misery from their future and crimes from society.

Dalai Lama's Advice on Parent Example





Do not train children to learning by force and harshness, but direct them to it by what amuses their minds so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.
