- Discipline & Self-Confidence
Taekwondo is a Korean form of martial arts. Literally translated from Korean, Taekwondo is the art of kicking and punching. Taekwondo is characterized by its varied and powerful kicking techniques including spinning and flying kicks.
Besides kicking and punching, a good Taekwondo program focuses on many other aspects as well. Our program includes: discipline, character building, self-control, respect, self-esteem, attention span, self-confidence, weight control and fitness.
Our Taekwondo Program
We teach traditional Taekwondo and focus on developing the total person (not just physically). Our classes are quite disciplined; our students wear traditional Taekwondo uniforms, and there are a lot of yes m’ams and yes sirs and a lot of bowing. Our students are taught age-appropriate self-defense. We also offer sport Taekwondo or sparring and some of our students compete in tournaments. Presently, our students range in age from 4 years old to 80 years old. We teach girls and boys, women and men. All of our students vary in their degree of physical condition.
We include everyone is our class schedule. Our Super Tots program is for ages four and five, our children’s classes are for ages six to twelve, and our adult classes are for those students who are thirteen and over. In our super tots class, the students learn some basic strikes and kicks, but we focus on attention span and self-control. This class is fun and fast paced and meets once a week for forty five minutes. In our children’s class, students have a chance for promotion and learn a lot more taekwondo than in super tots class, but still the focus is more on discipline and self-control. We don’t teach children how to fight, we teach them how to defend themselves and how to avoid fighting. The adult class is by nature more disciplined, so the focus is more on fitness, self-defense and learning the art of taekwondo. We are a traditional taekwondo school, so discipline is an important aspect of all of our classes.
We have classes three nights per week for students ages six and over. Average attendance of twice a week is required for these students. Our Super Tots, ages four and five, train only on Wednesday nights. While our primary focus is on our regularly scheduled evening classes, we do have a variety of other services that we offer. We also conduct seminars and demonstrations on request, usually at no charge. Some of our students compete in tournaments and we also host our own annual tournament.
