    👋🏼 Hey Parents,

    Finding the right sport or physical activity for your child shouldn’t be hard.

    Children love learning at Shim’s Tae Kwon Do Academy. Our kids martial arts programs are high-energy, fun and interactive.

    Here at our martial arts school, our goal is to help build our students’ self-esteem, which we do by acknowledging, recognizing and rewarding not just our students’ accomplishments and successes, but their efforts as well.

    Don’t go at it alone!

    Shim’s Tae Kwon Do Academy can help your child develop the skills they need to succeed.

    These valuable life lessons help our martial arts Niles students understand the connection between what they learn in class and the real-world applications that make martial arts practical and insightful skills for school-age, and beyond.

    Learning martial arts is a physical endeavor, involving all muscle groups to help develop a student’s physical fitness. But our emphasis goes far beyond just learning physical moves and martial arts techniques.

    At Shim’s Martial Arts Training Center, we use martial arts as a mechanism to develop positive character and life-improvement skills in our students.
