little monkeys

ages 4-5 

Summit Martial Arts programs are age specific and are the perfect way to introduce little ones to martial arts.  

Our Little Monkeys is a martial arts program designed to introduce children to tae kwon do in a fun and positive

environment.  The goal of this class is to get children comfortable with the dojang and to learn basic martial arts

etiquette.   We use a combination of fun games and drills to engage our students while learning basic martial arts

skills. Little Monkeys will teach children about the dangers of kind strangers and self defence.  Students will work

to earn 4 skills patches with various themes including listening and respect. 

The Little Monkeys Program will:

*Improve focus and concentration

*Teach children to control their minds and bodies

*Teach discipline and to show respect for all

*Teach stranger danger and self defence

*Improve balance and coordination

*Build confidence and social skills

*Improve physical fitness through exercise

Once your child has progressed through Little Monkeys, they may move up to our Little Dragons class.  

Little Dragons 

AGES 6-7

This is a great introductory martial arts program for children. The Little Dragons program is designed to teach
kids the basic skills of Tae Kwon Do in a fun and positive environment. The FUN factor keeps kids engaged
and encourages them to learn. Our instructors have specialized training and understand the physical,
emotional and social challenges for children of this age category. Our main focus is on developing gross
​motor skills, coordination, balance, and discipline through ​physical fitness.

The Little Dragons Program will:
*Improve focus and concentration
*Teach children to control their minds and bodies
*Teach discipline and to show respect for all
*Improve balance and coordination
*Build confidence and social skills
*Improve physical fitness through exercise

Our Little Dragons program will have your child running, kicking, punching, and blocking.  It is a non-stop action

packed class!  Kids can't wait to come back!  Watch out when they ask to give you a home demonstration of their

new skills!  Children will earn achievement patches for their efforts and will participate in belt testing specific to

the Little Dragons program.  Once your child has completed their time in Little Dragons, they will move up to our

Warriors program.


AGES 8-12

At Summit Martial Arts, we believe our students should have a well rounded martial arts education. As the children 
get a little older, our focus shifts to flexibility, speed, agility, and overall fitness. By the time children reach the early
teenage years, they will be developing their reaction time, strength, precision and using their own momentum to
​ perform some of the more dynamic Tae Kwon Do kicking techniques. This is where things get exciting!

The Warriors program will:
​ *Improve focus and concentration - excellent for children with attention disorders
*Improve agility - move with greater efficiency
*Give a more intense martial arts experience - learn exciting new skills
*Students will learn to be faster and stronger through physical conditioning
​*Reaction time develops - both mentally and physically
​*Students will use their own momentum to become a more dynamic martial artist
*Students will learn to strike with precision - pinpoint your moves

*Students will develop courage - believe in themselves and their abilities

* Students will be able to better resist negative peer pressure

You WILL see the difference in your child.


Ages 13 and up

Moo Duk Kwan Tae Kwon Do is the core curriculum taught at Summit Martial Arts. The focus from white belt to black belt is developing the tools needed to be a great martial artist. This includes developing quick, explosive kicks, strikes and blocks. While Tae Kwon Do is primarily a striking art, SMA also incorporates teaching the fundamentals of Judo and Hapkido.

Judo fundamentals include rolls, break-falls and basic throws and take downs

Hapkido basics focus on joint manipulation 

Basic grappling skills including ground fighting and submissions

At SMA, our primary focus is always Tae Kwon Do.  It is our goal to make students as well rounded as possible. To compliment our martial arts training, we offer special classes in weapons training and disarming, joint manipulation and board breaking.  When our students are ready to test for their black belt, they will know they have EARNED that belt.  Once a student reaches the rank of 1st dan black belt then the focus shifts from learning a high volume of techniques to really perfecting the techniques learned as a gup rank and learn how to effectively apply these techniques in a practical way.
