Karam’s Martial Arts began instructing in 1975 and has taught over 1,000+ students.
Curriculum design is so very important because it ensures that ALL children receive the same education with a well balanced, engineered learning system.
Karam’s Little Leaders has used 2 very important curriculum design tools which make their curriculum very unique.
The first design tool is called P.I.E.S. which ensures that many Social and Emotional lessons are included.
The second design tool is called Blooms Taxonomy which ensures a proven framework for teaching incremental thinking processes bring out the leadership in your child.
Educators agree that childhood is the most important stage for building a strong foundation and creating positive daily habits. “Childhood, however, is the most important stage when a strong foundation for these four developmental areas can be taught simultaneously and in a balanced way. If you want your children to excel in all walks of life, it is important to understand how they develop their PIES.”

Believing in our community and contributing to where we live gives us all a strong foundation for who we are. It provides us an understanding that the world is bigger than just us. Learning about and understanding our family and country’s history in a way that is impactful and real is very powerful.Learning about
and understanding our family and country’s history is impactful and real.
Building trust with others around us and having opportunities to lead is the only way to practice the skill of becoming a respected leader.
Understanding what the others around us need to be successful is necessary for any leader to do well.
Being able to stay on task or committed to a conversation is necessary for our children to follow through. There are so many distractions taking our child’s attention these days that this skill is vital to learn at a young age.
The second design tool is the Success Path which follows Blooms Taxonomy to ensure all children are working towards becoming independent leaders. BLOOMS Taxonomy: is a classification system used to define and distinguish different levels of children’s cognition—i.e., thinking, learning, and understanding. It is a hierarchical ordering of cognitive skills that helps teachers teach and children learn.
Early educators (1956) broke down the Blooms Taxonomy to homogenized learning for most everyone. It was revised in 2001 for education. This curriculum follows these proven stages of learning to ensure all children that participate in this program have the opportunity to (maximize their personal growth opportunity) excel in these areas.
The “Karam’s Little Leaders” program shows all kids how to build Self Confidence by the end of the first year, learn decision making skills at the end of the second year, and develop enhanced creativity by the end of the third year.
Thus, making all children “Karam’s Little Leader” graduates.
