Tae Kwon Do and Karate classes are all about self-control, respect, and determination. And fun! Here are the best places to get your belt on.
Team USA TaeKwon-Do (1580 Lemoine Avenue #2, Fort Lee, 201-947-8994)
You would never know that this unadorned storefront located in the heart of Fort Lee is a mecca for Martial Arts Classes in Bergen County. Between training Olympians and World Champs, Master Alvin Bernard teaches proper technique and methods to aspiring students while building their confidence and strength. Although Tae Kwon Do is the master’s passion and expertise, the studio also offers sweat-inducing Kickboxing and Junior Fitness classes plus one off Self Defense classes perfect for learning quick tricks to fend off an offender. Private lessons are also availabe. 
Tiger Kim’s Tae Kwon Do Center  (11 Homans Ave., Unit A, Closter, 201-767-7171)
Not only are the instructors at this studio top notch (all are high level black belts in TKD and go through extensive teacher training) but they are also great with kids. Good form is an obvious objective of their program with “board breaking days” and “belt tests” regularly scheduled to keep your kid enthused, but teaching respect outside the studio is a tenet as well- having many parents bow in thanks to this program’s achievements. In-school and online options available this year.
Northern Valley Martial Arts (55 Walnut Street, Suite 103, Norwood, 201-784-2411)
At NVMA students gain not only the skill of Tae Kwon Do, but important values such as self-control, respect, and determination. NVMA helps students reach their maximum potential by promoting self-esteem and motivation to succeed. The highly skilled instructors and fun environment make it easy for your kids to excel and stick to the program. Group and private lessons available as well. 
Englewood Krav Maga (26 East Forest Ave., Englewood, 201-567-9300) 
Krav Maga is an Israeli form of Martial Arts that teaches kids that the only way to stop an assailant is through force- in other words, none of this “turn the other cheek” stuff. Kids learn discipline, self-defense and build stamina from their in-class sparring sessions all taught in street fighting style.
Tigers Claw Martial Arts (49B Prospect Place, 2nd Floor, Hillsdale)
Kids as young as 3 learn confidence, discipline and martial arts skills at this award-winning Karate studio. The “Little Tigers” program introduces little ones to Karate basics and helps develop motor skills, while older kids learn sparring, breaking and weapons training in the “Kids/Elite/Warrior” class. The Teen Elite and Teen Warrior classes for ages 13 and up help older kids reach their goals of black belt and enhanced Isshin-Ryu training. Classes are offered one to two times per week with a highly trained sensei.
