you need the motivation to go work out. you go to the gym. you get tired, bored. you dont see results. you pass. you quit. motivation gets you started but never helps you finish.

this school gives you habits instead. the heart of this school is on developing a mental attitude and physical state that says "im going to get through this. I'm determined. i'm committed. i'll press my limits to GET IT DONE." you learn to kill that voice inside you that makes excuses. losers die here.

this place breaks you down! rebuilds a winner. the classes teach SPIRIT through progressive methods including MMA, Jujitsu, Kickboxing, and traditional arts.

You end up with RESULTS that carry over into your life and not just your workout. classes are designed to push personal limits. so regardless of age, weight, physical conditioning, you'll be challenged. kids have traditional programs, adults their choice of the mix above. I've taken the traditional classes as well as the conditioning ones. hit top shape here.

forget feelings, tears, sweat, pain, bc when ur done it's all about results. a fair share of sweat and tears...but priceless results.

I brought my nephew in for a trial class one day and he absolutely loved it! The classes are fun but yet its real disciplined. The instructors are all real professional and the kids absolutely love them! He's been going there for 4 years now and I've seen him mature into a really good kid.
I've started taking their Fight Fit MMA class now and it is a challenge, but I have never had a workout like it before. Great stuff.

Moon Sung Lee Strong Martial Arts provides your child with confidence and self esteem. They take the skills of Martial arts and incorporate a fun environment for your child. My daughter loves the program and the teachers. I would recommend them to any parent. They also have fun events each month for the children such as nerf gun war and movie day. You won't be disappointed

I googled karate school, nearby with great ratings. I found your school. I wanted a place were my child could surrender his energy and his behavior be contained. Thru discipline and leadership. I received acceptance without dismay. Taking in that he was on the Autism spectrum. Everyone was very understanding and kind. I love this center. Kenneth goes everyday, and he has surpassed our expectations.

The instructors are excellent! They teach, encourage and motivate all the students to do their best! Each class has a good instructor-to-student ratio which is valuable in learning the correct forms and movements. We found this school through Groupon and decided early on during our trial period to sign up because we were so impressed with the teaching methods of the instructors. There are at least 3 taekwondo schools walking distance from our home...but we continue to drive to Astoria..because STRONG is such an awesome quality school! I have seen my daughter improve in her ability to focus as well as become a more respectful individual! 5 stars to all her instructors!!!!!

Real teaching and mentorship. Qualities that a parent can only hope for when signing up your child for any program. It started with a Groupon and it was the best find that I have ever stumbled upon. The curriculum isn't stagnant -- this school is thoughtful and progressive, always looking for ways to push the lessons and their students. The instructors are caring and skilled, each and every one of them sees the strengths and weaknesses of the child and will work to improve, refine, and build up their abilities. My son attends class regularly and I have witnessed his growth. At the end of each class, he walks out absolutely exhausted, but proud of his efforts. I cannot say enough about Strong Martial Arts; they have built a wonderful community for families -- I love them to the moon and back.

I absolutely love everything about this place! After taking the first class I was hooked and have been coming to class for 7 months, it's the only workout I haven't gotten bored with and have seen amazing results. All the instructors are amazing and truly passionate when teaching. I always feel challenged and pushed to my potential. The class itself is an ass-kicker, especially the conditioning in the beginning lol, but it is totally worth it and honestly the best workout I've ever had. I highly recommend the Strong Martial Arts (Moon S Lee Evolution) location for anyone looking to get in shape and have fun while doing so. Also the classes are go at your pace so no worries if you're a beginner. Sign up for a class today, you won't regret it

I can't say enough about this school. The instructors are so caring and really invested in seeing the children grow. My 4 year old has been attending for 3 months. In this short time, we can see that her confidence and social skills have improved. Not only that but she is really learning Taekwondo. She will be advancing to a yellow belt soon and we are so proud. We made a wonderful choice with Moon Sung Lee Martial Arts and recommended to all!!

I found this place after leaving my old kickboxing place because it was to far away, and I have to say, it's been a pretty solid decision. The instructors are amazing. They all know exactly how to get you pumped up to really go HAM on the bag. The music is almost always great, which for me personally is a great way to keep me energized. The only negative I'd say is that it's somewhat inconvenient getting to the lockers and the waiting area gets really full before some classes, but that is worth it because you walk out of class feeling like a beast and wondering why you don't go more. I wish there were more early morning times because I would love to try to go before work to increase my attendance. Overall, definitely try this place because you'll get a great work out and the people are fantastic!!!

I've been coming to this classes since August and I just feel amazing, this workout is amazing, lot of cardio, helps you release stress and have so much fun. But what I love the most is not the incredible work out this is, it is the people that make this place so special, every single instructor can make you feel like part of a family, a very diverse family from all races, the way they teach always making sure you really understand what's going on, helping you develope skills you didn't even imagine you can have, encouraging you keep moving all the time, never giving up, teaching to work with a partner, enjoying every single drop of sweat!
They recently moved from another location, and let me tell you we are loving soooo much this new one, spacious, comfortable, in the women's lockers they even have for us to use in our days, and hair bands.
The contest they do all the time (even tho I haven't been able to go), i can see pictures of special events so people can interact with everybody, feels just like a group of friends that work out and enjoy life!
I just really love this place.
Looking forward to continue being part of this family and improve more.

I’ve been taking my 6 year old son to Strong Kids Martial Arts Astoria for a couple of months now and with all honesty, I couldn’t be much happier. The classes are adequately sized and you can tell the staff is genuinely concerned about the well being of each student. The class structure is totally different from what I expected. The class sessions center not only on teaching the children Taekwondo but also, in how to develop more discipline and focus. Lastly, my son loves every session he goes to. 5 out of 5.

We enrolled our daughter at Strong to gain strength & skill in self-defense, a *must* in today's day and age. But we gained so much more than that. Fantastic instructors providing truly personally-invested involvement welcomed us into the family, and that warmth fed her enthusiasm. What was a *must* when we began has become a passion that has fueled her abilities, self-confidence and self-discipline.

Does Your Child Need A Supportive, Educational, and Fun Activity?

Learning Martial Arts Teaches Young Kids Life Skills While They Have Fun

Young children are curious and active – and they sometimes have difficulty learning to control their bodies and their behavior. They crave structure and thrive in an environment that’s supportive, educational, and fun.

Does your young child

struggle with these things?

They struggle to maintain control of their movements and may be unintentionally destructive.

They find it difficult to focus on a task or to see it through to the end.

They have a hard time sharing their belongings and getting along with other kids.

Parenting young children is a real challenge.

You must balance their natural inquisitiveness and high energy with trying to teach them the basic skills they need for school and life.

Discipline, sharing, and self-control are all things they need to learn to be successful.

The ideal setting is one that’s got some structure but works with kids at their current developmental level. If they have fun while they’re learning, they’ll be more likely to retain those lessons and learn the skills they need.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying martial arts is ideal for young children. It provides them with an outlet for their energy. But, it also teaches them about respect, discipline, and other core values that will go with them beyond the dojo. Junior martial arts classes teach kids to control their movements and behavior, and they’ll learn social skills and interaction at the same time.

Studying Martial Arts Builds Physical Coordination and Control

Young children who learn martial arts find out quickly that each movement must be intentional. They learn to control their movements to the best of their ability.

They also practice hand-eye coordination and learn about their bodies. That means they’ll be less likely to be unintentionally destructive.

Young Martial Arts Students Learn How to Focus

Getting young kids to pay attention can feel like an impossible task. The structure of our martial arts classes shows kids the importance of focus and teaches them by having them apply it to easily-achievable tasks.

The focus they learn in the dojo is something they’ll take home – and into the classroom. That’s why kids who study martial arts tend to be good students, too.

Martial Arts Helps Kids Learn to Deal with Frustration

Martial arts instruction requires students to pursue goals to earn new belts. Young kids can easily become frustrated when they don’t get what they want, but studying martial arts helps them learn the power of persistence.

The physical activity in our classes also helps kids manage stress and anxiety by allowing them to burn it off in a safe and constructive way.

Kids Who Study Martial Arts Learn Good Sportsmanship

Losing is not anybody’s idea of fun, but we all need to learn how to accept a defeat gracefully and move on. We teach students that losing is part of life – and it’s what you do after you lose that tells people who you are.

Even though martial arts is an individual sport, we cultivate an environment of supportive teamwork where students root for one another.

FAQs

My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?

Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control and respect for others. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.

Will studying martial arts help my child learn how to interact with others and share?

Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.

My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?

Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.

My child is out of control physically, and can be very destructive. How will studying martial arts help?

Martial arts instruction focuses on hand-eye coordination, control, and strength. As kids learn basic moves and then advance, they learn how to control their bodies and movements.

My child gives up easily when frustrated. I want them to learn persistence. Can your classes help?

Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.

My child is disrespectful to me and to other caregivers. How can studying martial arts change that?

Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.

More Benefits

Kids learn how to listen respectfully to others without interruptions.

Our students learn the value of discipline as they pursue clearly-defined goals.

Martial arts instruction teaches kids how to accept defeat and learn from their mistakes.

Martial arts helps kids build core strength, balance, and physical coordination.
