About our programs

Preschool Martial Arts
in Sanford

At Chophouse Martial Arts, we recognize that children between the ages of 3-4 are in a crucial stage of growth and development. They embark on new discoveries every day, while learning to cope with the challenges of everyday life. Their intellect, emotions, physical capabilities, and social competence are all rapidly expanding. Sometimes, their fastpaced development makes it difficult for them to discern between right and wrong and identify what truly matters.

That's where our Tiny Tigers program comes in. It serves as a preparatory course for our Little Tigers (5-7 year old group) and is specifically designed to meet the unique needs of 3 and 4-year-olds. Drawing upon scientific and psychological resources dedicated to this age group, we have carefully crafted our program to align with each child's characteristics and capabilities.

Our Little Tigers(aged 5-7) program focuses on developing championship characteristics that are essential for success. These characteristics serve as the foundation of our program and guide our Little Tigers to excel not only in martial arts but also in all aspects of their lives.

Junior Tigers program is specifically designed for children aged 8-12 years old. We understand that children within this age group possess unique characteristics that differ from younger children. They have their own range of development and distinctive traits.

Our Youth Martial Arts program provides a more specific and tailored training experience to meet the needs of children in this age group. We recognize that at this stage of their development, they can benefit from training that addresses their physical, intellectual, emotional, and social growth. In our Junior Tigers program, your child will have the opportunity to learn and excel in various disciplines, including sport karate, GOJU, kickboxing, and self defense.

Student Creed

“I come to you with only Karate, empty hands, I have no weapons, but should I be forced to defend myself, my principles or my honor, should it be a matter of life or death, of right or wrong; then here my weapons, Karate, my empty hands.”

At Chophouse Martial Arts, our student creed teaches kids and parents the true essence of Karate. It emphasizes that while we come with empty hands, Karate equips us with the tools to defend ourselves, uphold our principles, and protect what’s right. By practicing and living by this creed, we cultivate strength, integrity, and the ability to navigate life’s challenges with confidence and honor. Join us on this transformative journey and experience the power of Karate
in shaping young minds and instilling values that last a lifetime!
