Junior Taekwondo

For ages 8-13 or graduated Kids Karate.

Taekwondo is one of the most popular martial arts in the world, possibly because it features more kicks than any other! The Junior Taekwondo program was created for a younger audienceĀ but retains all the core values and benefits of Taekwondo, and of course, ALL the kicks! Each class consists of new kicks, strikes, blocks, and techniques for defending and escaping from attackers. Students practice kicks and strikes on foam shields and targets. Beginners work on basics while higher ranking students work on more advanced techniques. All students do conditioning, board breaking, learn Korean words, and play fun games. This is a highly structured program with computerized belt tracking. Each class has a theme which changes daily. Popular themes include Advanced Kicks, Board Breaking, Sparring, and Advanced Self-Defense with Coach Diane, our resident expert in Krav Maga (hand to hand combat).Ā On test day students receive a new belt and certificate and break real wooden boards (all included with your tuition).
