Tae Kwon-Do for Kids

Action Tae Kwon-Do has children only classes so that your children are taught relevant martial arts skills in a safe environment without the added pressure of older teenagers and adults taking part. These are classes designed just for children.

We offer two different age groups – Tigers (3-5 years) and Children (5-12 years).

Tigers TKD

The aim of the Tigers program is to help develop listening and learning skills as well as the confidence to take part in group and social activities. The tigers classes are for 3-5yr olds.

These are crucial skills for young children at the start of their schooling.

See our information page for more information on our TigersTKD program. 


The children classes are for kids aged aged 5 -12 years. After progressing through our children’s program, children will have the required skills to join our adults program. Our classes run across many locations in Canberra.  We offer children’s classes in the evenings, Saturday mornings and also have a number of after school classes to make attending classes easy. Find the one nearest to you and book your child in to start learning with us.

Children’s classes teach the application of punches, kicks, blocks, patterns and sparring while making the classes fun and exciting. We will not only teach your children the art of Tae Kwon-Do but will also help your children with coordination, discipline and their ability to concentrate.

Classes also reinforce important skills for the classroom such as listening and following instructions. In our strict but fun martial arts environment, children will gain not only Taekwondo skills, but skills for life.

As the Chief Instructor I have an unshakeable belief in the incredible potential that lies within each of us, and the capability of my instructors and Australia’s leading martial arts school, Action Tae Kwon-Do to unleash this potential.

Tae Kwon-Do can help put a Stop to Bullying at school

At Action Tae Kwon Do our Instructors can help your children with bullies. Most people have been bullied at some stage in their life and as such know how difficult it can be to deal with. At Action we will help your children in a variety of ways. Our classes are not only fun but they will help your children with confidence, fitness and strength, both physical and mental.

Every time your children walk in the door they will be provided with new challenges. Every time your children face these challenges they will build confidence and courage. Turning up to the gym for the first time is the first challenge your child will face and can be quite daunting. As your children train they will learn in a fun and safe environment learning self defence techniques and eventually patterns which are performed in front of their classmates. It can be quite nerve-racking performing your patterns or self defence techniques in front of your class mates but this is just another opportunity for your children to build confidence.

For your children to stand up to a bully and tell them to stop requires confidence. Action Tae Kwon Do can help your children build the confidence they need to stand up to a bully.
