I always wanted to study martial arts. Now I get to do it with my 13 year old daughter! Chandler and Landon are wise beyond their years and the Taylors are a great family.

This is an excellent school owned and operated by a most upstanding and outstanding family. My entire family has really enjoyed the time we have spent there so far. There are opportunities to challenge every age and skill level, and I have seen my children grow in character by leaps and bounds. Here's to many more years of training and thank you, Taylors, for all that you do!

This program has changed my daughter's entire outlook for the better! She is more confident, happier and more agreeable, and she truly loves these amazing instructors!

I also have to brag about their self defense course! I took it once on my own and then my company sponsored a second class. All of my colleagues raved about how much fun it was and they were so excited to show everyone what they learned! The instructors use humor to make the class fun and interesting and I plan on attending the next one just to practice my skills and have some fun!

Thank you so much,Taylor's Martial Arts of Kingsport! You're helping shape wonderful, caring, confident kids!

You wouldn't think that a martial arts studio would be such a warm, friendly, and caring place, but this one is! In addition to good training and a great workout, the Taylor's put a lot of heart and love into this studio.

Taylor's Martial Arts Academy is an amazing family ran training program. My son has gained confidence, improved his motor skills, and has grown as a leader due to the guidance, structure, and personable training of the instructors at TMAA. I would highly recommend for all age groups. The classes are affordable, convenient to my child's schedule and high energy. The family has went above and beyond our expectations with my son's training.

We love Taylor's Martial Arts Academy. Two of my girls attend the beginners class and I attend the adult class. You can tell that it's not just a business for them; the instructors genuinely love what they do and care about the students. I would recommend Taylor's to everyone!

I have three children that attend Taylor’s. I’m impressed with the overall “family atmosphere”, the instruction and organization of the Acadamy. The instructors are very warm to my children and they look forward to their classes. I myself have attended a women’s self defense class and was blown away by the knowledge and ability of the instructors.

This family-owned business has a vested interest in bettering their students - in both martial arts and general life skills. I can't say enough good things about Taylor Martial Arts, the people that work there, Chandler and Landon are amazing young men. The things I’ve seen my son do, and the impact their program has had on him, has really blown me away. I recommend Taylor Martial Arts to anyone looking to start a martial arts program.

My daughter used to take taekwondo in another state at a very well-known martial arts school. One of the things that happened that I noticed over the years was she was losing her self-confidence. This happened because they catered to students that were in the so called "school competition team" and the focus was on them and not the regular students. After moving to TN, I decided to get her back into it and that is when I found Taylor's Martial Arts. So far, she has made great improvements almost like she never stopped studying. I was also hesitant about putting my younger son in due to his lack of focus spectrum disorder. He has been in for months now and is already making progress as well as earning his belts. They are great at working with kids. Highly recommend this school.

When my kids started training at Taylor’s, they were both broken from a very difficult event that rocked our family. The Taylor’s have lovingly come alongside of us and helped my daughter find her voice again, and have helped my son find focus. They helped both of my children channel their fear into strength. I cannot express the depth of love and support that I have felt from this amazing family and how they’ve touched our broken hearts and helped to heal them. They are incredible TKD instructors, but they are even more incredible people with hearts the size of Alaska! We love them so much!

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

We love Taylor's Martial Arts Academy. Two of my girls attend the beginners class and I attend the adult class. You can tell that it's not just a business for them; the instructors genuinely love what they do and care about the students. I would recommend Taylor's to everyone!

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.
