Napa Taekwondo Academy Builds Young Minds and Bodies 

Children love learning at Napa Taekwondo Academy. Our kids martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive.

The overarching goal of our school is to build our students' self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our students' accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.

Learning martial arts is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student's physical fitness. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques. At the Napa Taekwondo Academy, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.

Our Program emphasis is on the personal-development aspects of martial arts, such as increasing self-confidence, improving focus and concentration, developing self-discipline, and optimizing physical fitness.

Life Lessons Developed Through Our Martial Arts Program

Classes include group discussions and role-playing exercises. We touch on life lessons and discuss alternate resolutions to some of the issues children face today. These issues are discussed in a non-threatening, proactive way.

Children pay close attention as we explore topics that include:

  • Avoiding conflicts
  • Dealing with bullies
  • Mental self-defense
  • Proper respect for adults
  • Stranger awareness
  • Respect for self and others
  • Saying no to drugs and peer pressure

These valuable life lessons help our martial arts student understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.

Our times for Beginner Children classes age 6-12 are Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 3:30 to 6:40 pm (see class schedule).
