Kids Martial Arts classes build strength in a real, functional way that benefits children of all ages.
Flexibility isn't just for showing off, it has tremendous health benefits from increased quality of life to injury reduction.
Increased balance, awareness and precision turn your little one into a real life ninja (and they'll love it)
Kids Martial Arts gives kids laser-like focus. They'll have the ability to have sustained patience at will, and they'll benefit from it for life.
Children need a safe, structured place to learn to overcome obstacles in order to build grit and determination.
Confidence isn't just a buzzword, it's what we do. Your child will build deep, unshakeable confidence that they'll take everywhere they go.
We find that our students become more confident to stand up to bullies and have more humility and kindness to others through their martial arts lessons.
We don’t require parents to stay during classes. However, we do find that parents who get involved with their kids martial arts lessons, truly build a solid connection as they see their child grow in confidence and skill as they progress through their belt ranks. And building strong family units is important to us at Institute for American Karate, and for our Shelbyville community.
Make sure you wear comfortable clothes you can do sports in!
Be sure to bring a water bottle to your martial arts classes.

Yes! One of the great things about martial arts classes, is that it’s an individual sport, done in a group environment. We find that all of our students improve their focus, self control, discipline and social skills. The best part is that they don’t even realize the growth they are making! They just think they are having fun!

We encourage parents to watch their children in their kids martial arts lessons. We love parents getting involved! And so do their kids. Even better… join into some of our martial arts classes for adults. Your kids will love that you have something in common. It will build a strong family bond!
Additionally, if you wanted some ‘me-time’? Simply drop them off, and go grab a coffee. They will greet you with a huge smile when you return, because they had SO much fun!
Not at all. You will find that martial arts classes are the PERFECT sport for kids who aren’t connecting with other sports. Martial arts classes are an individual after school activity, that is done in a group.
The journey from white belt to black belt is different for each student but what is the same for everyone is that they improve coordination, balance, motor skills, focus and discipline. They also make a lot of great friends in the process!
Our instructors are highly skilled in teaching martial arts. It’s their PASSION!
This is probably the BEST kids activity for children who enjoy screen time.
Getting kids active, without them realizing they are learning, is our skill. Kicking and punching pads is such a great stress relief, that kids feel better when they leave our studio!
Many Shelbyville parents find that once their kids start martial arts classes, they see a happier, more social child develop right before their eyes. You’ll be glad they started classes!
PLUS…. Most kids LOVE being a ninja!
