NTKD Kids' Program

Master Neill with some of our Kids' Program participants!

Our successful children's program was established in 2008 and is a year-round, full-body exercise program that is not dependent on weather conditions and grows with the child. Young students receive training tailored especially to their age and ability level to guarantee the best learning experience. Just like adults, kids begin by learning the best and safest ways to punch, kick and block attacks. They learn to be more aware of their surroundings so that they can avoid or respond to dangerous situations in an appropriate manner. As their skill and experience increase, lessons expand into intermediate and advanced techniques, providing just the right amount of challenge to allow kids to succeed and take pride in those achievements. The same values emphasized in your home are reinforced in our classes using martial arts to keep kids interested and motivated.

In short, if you'd like to see self-disciplined, courteous, confident kids at home who take mature, self-guided action in completing chores and homework and are tired at the end of the day from a good, healthy workout, Neill's Family Taekwondo and Fitness is the place for your kids! Convinced? Or maybe you and your family would like to watch or try a class?

NTKD Families' Program

Children and adults participate in drills at Neill's Academy

Family has always been an important part of NTKD: we are a small family business, and as such we understand how difficult it can be for modern families to balance home life with work, school, and other commitments and activities. We have endeavored from the beginning to make our schedule and programs as accessible to family training as possible. By providing several varying class times each week, we feel confident that every family can find a class that fits their schedule. Our instructors meticulously plan our mixed-age family classes to ensure all ages and experience levels can get the most out of their training...together!

So, you may be thinking: why train with your family? Taekwondo training provides an especially unique opportunity for quality family time and bonding. Often "together time" involves quickly bolting a meal together or zoned out in front of a screen in proximity to each other. By attending class together, families are fully engaged with each other, strengthening trust and respect and sharing in each other's achievements and successes.

Maybe you don't want to have to secure a babysitter to go to the gym and get in your workout. Bring the kids along and get a healthy workout together! Ever had problems sticking to an exercise plan? Now you have an accountability group – your own family! Maybe your child (or partner!) needs a little encouragement to try something new. Having a family member in class can help them see that learning something new can be a fun experience - not intimidating - and that everyone who starts something new begins at ground zero (including adults!). Want to show your kid or spouse that you're interested and involved in their hobbies? Now you'll understand what they're talking about after class!

And don't worry; we love kids at NTKD but we understand that adults may occasionally want an all-adult class. Check out our adult program page and our schedule to learn more about how we accommodate adults at NTKD.

Memberships for families of two or more are just $300 per month. That's right; just $300 whether you are a family of two or a family of five! Are you ready to increase quality time with your family while at the same time engaging in a healthy activity in a positive environment? How about just trying out a free private lesson with your family? Find us on the map (we are right in the heart of Chapel Hill off East Franklin Street) and use the form below to schedule a time to come by. Or call now to ask questions or schedule your lesson: 919-942-6622. We can't wait to meet your family!
