MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES

 

Classes for Children ages 5-8

Children ages 5 to 8 are introduced to Martial Arts in a playful way through exercises and technique instruction. Children should have fun first and foremost, but the aspects of Discipline, Focus, Concentration and Respect are taught directly through the exercises and techniques. Stories and teachings supplement the physical instruction.

Classes for Children ages 9-12

Children ages 9-12 are given more traditional instruction focusing strongly on the physical techniques while learning a deeper understanding of Discipline, Focus, Concentration and Respect as it relates to their school and home lives. Stories and teachings supplement the physical instruction.

Classes for Teenagers ages 13-16

Teenagers are able to be challenged physically and mentally to start exploring who they are and who they want to become. A teenager must learn about Morals and Values and develop a Warrior's Code. Techniques and Stories focus on these ideas so that when the Teenager is ready to leave home they do so with a firm foundation of Self and a Code to handle what life presents to them.

Classes for Adults ages 17 and up

Adults learn Tae Kwon Do with influences brought in from Yoga and Tai Chi. The structure is traditional with students progressing by achieving increasingly challenging belt ranks. Adults are challenged not only physically, but they are encouraged in class to grow mentally through exploring meaning in their lives and Martial Arts practice.
