Get Started

New students are gradually introduced to new techniques allowing for a smooth transition into our program.

Our Program

Our Lil’ Dragon program teaches many of the same Tae Kwon Do techniques that encompass our program for older children. Age appropriate techniques are taught in a manner proven to help our youngest students succeed. Classes are a half hour in duration. Every belt has four stripes. Every two weeks, we work to earn a stripe on our belt. The first stripe is for a block. The second stripe is for a hand strike. The third stripe is for a kick.  The fourth is for a self-defense technique. After they have earned all four stripes, they test for a new belt and begin with new techniques.

When students are ready,  they are able to participate in our full Tae Kwon Do program that operates under the direct supervision of Grand Master Ho Yung Chung, who administers the rank testings. Our Tae Kwon Do program is sanctioned by:
