About Our School
Sustaire’s Karate for Kids is a family oriented business serving the Allen/McKinney, TX area since 1994. Our team is 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. Our team is standing by to show you our facilities and what we have to offer you and your family. Karate for Kids offers, Tiny Tiger classes (ages 4-6), elementary aged karate kid programs, and teen and adult martial art classes.
Sustaire’s Karate for Kids follows the Songahm curriculum which 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.
