About Us


Karate for Kids is a family oriented business focused on the tenants of Taekwondo, which include Integrity, Honor, Perseverance, Loyalty, Respect and Gratitude. Like any Martial Art properly taught and properly practiced, Taekwondo is a non-aggressive and ethical system of self-defense.

Sustaire’s Karate for Kids has been in business for over 20 years in the Allen/McKinney, TX area. The Songahm curriculum facilitates a smooth progression from one rank to the next, so that students who begin Taekwondo feeling they’ll never be able to do a simple block (for example) suddenly find themselves a few years later doing 360-degree jumping kicks with ease.
