Imagine a room... filled with happy, highly motivated, energetic children. They're having fun and learning skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. This is what our four to twelve year old Children’s Martial Arts Program can do for your child. Best of all, they do not see this as learning, they see it as play, because every one of our classes is filled with fun and excitement. 

Tim Goonan incorporates the ethics, moral integrity and martial art techniques he’s gained from a lifetime of experience into this unique, age-specific martial art program.

This age group is one of the most challenging, due to the different maturity levels of the students. We pride ourselves on making our program fun, exciting and relevant to each and every child, regardless of age or ability.


Our Belt Reward System improves children’s self-esteem

At Penn Mar Martial Arts, we do not take belt promotion lightly. We do everything in our power to teach students to be patient, determined, and goal oriented, so when they do earn their belts, they feel a great sense of accomplishment that really boosts their confidence and self esteem.

Our Hapkido program teaches children discipline

Our amazing, highly trained staff of patient instructors love to work with children. We enforce good rules of behavior in class, and we expect the same kind of behavior at home and in school. This is not your garden-variety program, filled with empty creeds and sayings that the students do not take to heart. Our ultimate goal is to help you raise children that are unstoppable in everything they attempt.

Our children’s program is specifically designed for ages four to twelve years old. We have developed methods to capture children’s imaginations while teaching them skills that will change their lives forever.

Why do our programs soar above the rest?
