About Kicks for Kids
Voted Number One By You 7 Years In A Row!
Established in 2001 in Burlington, Ontario, Kicks For Kids has a distinguished reputation for producing high performance athletes. Over the years Kicks For Kids has produced a large group of provincial, national and International champions up to and including two of our instructors carding for the Olympics. With so many Tae Kwon Do programs out there to choose from, Kicks For Kids has distinguished themselves by emphasizing high quality instruction, from instructors that are actively competing both Nationaly and Internationaly themselves. We have quickly become known as the place to be for athletes wishing to take Tae Kwon Do competition to the next level. Several of our senior students have also continued on to become successful Coaches, Referees, and Instructors, who are passing on their knowledge and dedication to the next generation of Taekwondo athletes in the area.
Our state of the art Olympic training centres are the largest Martial Arts Schools in the Halton Region with over 10 000 square feet in each of our Burlington and Oakville locations and another 5 000 square feet in our Milton location. While others may make this claim, we encourage you to visit them and us for a quick integrity check and a first hand look! We have 2,3 and even 4 Olympic size rings in our facilities with olympic puzzle piece, percussion mats, a 2,000 sq. ft. snack / homework area. Our clubs are professionally cleaned twice daily and we feel they are the nicest facilities in North America.
We teach the Official Olympic Sport of TAE KWON DO. Kicks For Kids specializes in martial arts instruction for children of all ages. Children's classes are offered Monday to Saturday and unlimited training is available.
With over 700 active members our programs are by far the largest and most successful of their kind in the Halton area. We currently offer North Americas' Largest After School Martial Arts program that now picks up 300 students at most elementary schools in the Burlington, Oakville and Milton areas. These children are transported to our facility and receive 90 minutes of martial arts instruction daily.
All of the programs that we offer have been designed by a team of registered, practicing school teachers and Black Belt experts with an emphasis on building self-confidence and focus in children. Our classes are in a word EXCITING. The smile on the children's faces says it all. We accept students from the ages of 3 and up. OUR WORLD CLASS TEAM OF INSTRUCTORS including both I.T.F. and W.T.F. Black Belt Instructors, offer years of experience, patience and teaching skills to help each and every student become the best that they can be. During our years in operation we have also been actively developing and implementing several specialized programs dealing with issues such as Bully-proofing and programs for kids with A.D.D. & A.D.H.D. We teach these programs in many area elementary schools as well as in our daily classes. These programs have been extremely successful and give children the tools and confidence needed to deal with tough situations.
Here are just a few of the parent testimonials that we regularly receive:
"Thanks Kicks For Kids. Your work with Sydney has helped tremendously with her respect, self-esteem and her focus on her school work. We are very proud to be a part of the Kicks For Kids family."
"Michael and Daniel have really enjoyed taking martial arts classes at Kicks For Kids. They have shown improvements in co-ordination, respect and in their grades at school. Your After School Program has been a godsend to us and I couldn't imagine not being a part of Kicks For Kids."
Michelle and Dave MacKinnon are educators and entrepreneurs at heart. Their management style is to empower both the instructor and the student to reach beyond their comfort zones and to continually establish new bench marks.
