CHILDREN'S MARTIAL ARTS
Children’s Kung Fu
Have you been searching for a great children’s karate or children’s martial arts studio and just are not sure where to turn? Or maybe, you are looking for a sport or extracurricular activity that is right for your child and haven’t found the perfect fit.
Children’s Martial Arts at the U.S. Kuo Shu Academy are anything but an ordinary sport or extra-curricular activity. In fact, at Kuo Shu, we study Kung Fu, which is commonly thought of as the Granddaddy of Asian martial arts. Kung Fu was made popular by famous practitioners such as Bruce Lee, Jet Li, and Jackie Chan.
We teach traditional Chinese Kung Fu that includes so much more than just breaking boards and learning how to kick and punch. A well-rounded program, we utilize all of the traditions of Kung Fu to contribute to your child’s growth and development in all facets of life.

Our program has been designed and proven to help fill in the gaps children don’t get from their academic and social pursuits at school. Confidence-building, character development lessons are built into every single class. Children will gain a deeper respect for others, better focus, and concentration, improved ability to commit and follow through with greater self-discipline and perseverance.
Our students learn how to be altogether good people.
We’ll provide students with low self-esteem, opportunities to learn how to perform under pressure in a safe and nurturing environment where everyone fails to meet the mark sometimes, but we all cheer each other on to get back up and keep trying! This growth can eventually lead to them performing in events and competitions where they will further grow their self-confidence.
Children’s Karate is Fun
Karate/Kung Fu/Tae Kwon Do – you may use a variety of terms to describe children’s martial arts. Our version of martial arts is from China which is Kung Fu, Karate is from Japan, and Tae Kwon Do originates out of Korea. In any case, children’s martial arts are fun and at U.S. Kuo Shu, we make sure that is true and then some!
Along with learning forms and breathing and all things Kung Fu, your child will learn and practice through games, partner work, and group fun! Nothing improves reflexes better than batting down squishy balls being thrown at you quickly. Improving strength in your core is best done with a game of Kung Fu car wash…Mom and Dad, can you hold a plank for 3 minutes while the whole class crawls under you?
Fun and progress keep our Kung Fu kids coming back week in and week out. Our program will develop children through the stages of colored sashes, all the way to the coveted black sash. Through fun and games and a lot of hard work, students learn to take great pride in their accomplishments as they earn new sash after new sash.
