Where Do I Find Knoxville Kids Martial Arts Academy Classes?

Our kidz are the most important things to us and we want the best for them. I understand this completely because I raised 4 kidz of my own. So, wanting the best martial arts class and academy for your children is just as important to me as it is to you.

In Knoxville, Master Booe’s Karate Kidz is the only martial arts academy that exclusively caters to children. This means our focus isn’t split between kidz, and adults. There are good martial arts studios in the area for adults, but none compare to Karate Kidz for children.

There are several types of martial arts as well. Within those martial arts are many techniques that are totally inappropriate for children to learn or even be exposed to.

Sadly, when some schools cater to both children and adults in one academy, you will find the lines get blurred and children are taught techniques like joint dislocations, choke holds, and even bladed weapons techniques. At Master Booe’s Karate Kidz, all techniques are age appropriate and safe.

How Do You Get Kids Into Martial Arts In Knoxville?

The first step to getting a child into martial arts is to visit a school that has a focus on children’s classes and get a feel for the location, instructor, and culture of the academy. Pay attention not only to who is teaching your child’s class, but to who is teaching the other children as well.

To get kidz into martial arts in Knoxville, look for schools with instructors with many years of experience and have your son or daughter try out a class. Evaluate their pay structure, agreements, price, and the available class schedule.

At Master Booe’s Karate Kidz in Knoxville I teach the classes with 30 years of experience behind me. The techniques are age appropriate and the environment is kid friendly. There are no contracts and the classes can be taken once or twice per week, depending on your goals and schedule.

Can Kids Learn Karate In 3 months?

Like a learning a musical instrument, painting, or speaking a foreign language, the martial arts involves developing a skill set along with memorizing best practices and techniques. This takes time to perfect. That being said, there are some things a child can learn in a couple of months.

In 3 months kids cannot learn all or even most of what Karate or any martial art has to offer. Though they can learn the basics of a couple strikes, block, takedowns, and falling techniques. Simply learning to use techniques are just the beginning. Perfecting them takes years.

This is even more important to understand when studying my Karate system which draws its techniques from the basics of three different martial art styles.

It takes years of study (and fun) to master these basics. If you would like to get your little treasure started on this self improvement path, contact me today.


Can Kids Learn Karate In 1 Year?

It may seem a bit more reasonable to ask about learning Karate in 1 year rather than three months, but the answer turns out to be similar. Karate is a series of skills sets that take quite a while to learn to a usable proficiency level.

It is true that some proficiency can be gained in Karate in 1 year, but it cannot be learned to any significant level in that time. After one year self defense proficiency, technical skill, and overall fitness will have increased, but learning Karate to a high degree is fairly far off.

It takes between 4.5 to 8 years to get a black belt in many styles of Karate, depending on the amount of classes attended each week.

The style of Karate studied at Master Booe’s Karate Kidz in Knoxville is no different and can even take longer than normal seeing that there are several styles that have been incorporated into the system.

Can You Get A Black Belt In Karate In 3 Years?

This time frame is getting closer to the mark, but there isn’t a form of Karate that normally promotes students to Black belt in less than 4 years. There is a martial art with a bit more of a limited scope that practitioners can use to reach a Black Belt in 3 years or a bit more.

The only martial art style that can take a student only 3 years to earn a Black Belt is the Korean art and Olympic sport of TaeKwonDo. Due to it’s more limited and technical scope and mainly sport focused system, it takes less time than Karate, Judo, and Jiu Jitsu.

Keep in mind that Black Belt for nearly any system really signifies the student has mastered the basics. Most every style considers a 1st degree black belt only the beginning.

How Early Can A Child Start Karate?

Kids are like sponges. They can learn a lot of things just by being exposed to it for a while. Yet, Karate is a bit different. It takes quite of bit of skill to learn and then teach it. This goes for Judo, Kali, Jiu Jitsu as well as many other styles.

To get a child on the road to really learning Karate, it is advisable to start them as early as you think they are ready as their parent. At Master Booe’s Karate Kidz in Knoxville I start them at 2 years old. The majority of 2 year olds and most every 3 year old and up can succeed and love it.

I have taught thousands of children with a large percentage of them being 2 and 3 year olds. The physical and social skills learned at these ages gives them a significant advantage going forward.

How Many Times A Week Should Kids Train In Karate?

Many martial arts schools require at least 2 classes per week in the beginning stages. Later, three and even four times per week are pushed. There are many reasons for this, but it begins to claim a lot of a parent’s time after a while.

At Master Booe’s Karate Kidz, students are encouraged to start with one class per week and only increase to two if parents deem it necessary. I strongly advise against 3 or more classes per week. The national average sees students quitting at 6 months when 2 or more classes per week are encouraged.

It is not inherently bad if a parent deems 2 or 3 classes per week necessary. Parents know their children better than most anyone. It is just usually not advisable since overtraining leads to burnout.

It is a generally accepted statistic that only 2% of students that begin training in Karate will achieve the rank of Black Belt. Burnout from over training each week is a significant part of this.

I usually advise only one class per week, but always leave it up to parents to know their child. I also allow changing frequency of training per week at any time.

What Are Karate Class Prices In Knoxville?

For most Karate schools, classes, pads, uniforms, workshops, and seminars add up quickly per month. Yet, if you can resist the up sales, a reasonable rate per month can be had. The problem comes from not only the up sales, but the contracts for children.

The national average for costs for kidz Karate instruction is $150 per month. This number takes into account fees, uniforms, pads, and class tuition. There are schools that charge a bit less or much more, but on average this is what you can expect.

Many Karate schools use contracts to secure steady income for expenses and keeping the doors open while charging enough to pay employees and make a living. It is legitimate to expect instruction with the overhead some have to cost that much.

At Master Booe’s Karate Kidz, I purposefully keep my costs low in many ways to pass on the savings to parents. Classes average much lower than most and you are in complete control of how much you pay and when you bring your children to attend.

The Wrap Up

Knoxville actually has some good martial arts instruction overall for adults. You can also find some decent programs for kids. The main issue is the fact that every martial arts studio in Knoxville splits their focus between the needs of children and adult classes.

My martial arts academy is designed only for children and because of this, my programs are hyper specialized on the needs of kidz 2 years old to 12 years old. We do have separate classes on a case by case basis for teens.

The curriculum, facilities, pacing, character building aspects, etc. all point young minds toward a path of advantage for their future.

I hope to hear from you soon.
