No, on the contrary, martial arts teaches self–control and discipline first and self-defense second which will teach your children how to properly use their training and never misuse it. They will learn to defend themselves in case of a dangerous situation however, they will also be taught to deescalate and avoid situations so that it does not come to the point where they need to use their training. We will teach them how to respect everyone in and out of the studio that will in fact keep them from punching, hitting, and kicking their parents, siblings, friends, etc.

  1. Colorado Alliance of Martial Arts Centers is a big school with a small school feel. What we mean by that is we have been around a long time (since 1997) and have found the best ways to train students into becoming the best they can be. We have a big community however, the way we interact with our students and care for our students, you would never know we are a big school! Our instructors know everyone by name and we are a big family that cares for each other! Our students still get individualized attention and we have enough black belts instructors and assistants to make sure everyone gets the attention they need to grow into the best versions of themselves!
  2. Not to mention we have NO CONTRACTS, flexible schedules with classes 7 days a week, great family pricing, variety of classes and class sizes, and the best quality training available!

Yes, taekwondo will help your kid succeed in school! Martial arts teaches discipline, respect, routine, balance, and focus. All these traits from taekwondo will help your kid focus in class and get better grades! We have had several comments from teachers that their best most well-behaved and determined students have been martial artists from our school!

The answer is yes! We have had several glowing success stories of children and adults with special needs including autism, Asperger’s, ADHD, Down syndrome, OCD, PTSD learning disabilities, etc. who have had life-changing improvements from doing martial arts! Martial arts has a repetitive and structural nature that demands concentration that forces coordination of the attention centers in the brain which in turn helps to channel negative energy and deal with their disability in a healthy way while gaining balance focus, increasing self-esteem, coordination, self-defense all while having fun.

“My child has struggled with disabilities his whole life and had never been able to tie his own shoes or tell his left from right. After a few months at PAMA, he accomplished both of these and I attributed this amazing achievement to his taekwondo training!” — PAMA Parent
