ABOUT TAEKWONDO

Taekwondo is a martial art that originates from Korea. In Korean, tae means “to strike or break with foot”; kwon means “to strike or break with fist”; and do means “way”, “method”, or “path”. Thus, taekwondo may be loosely translated as “the way of the hand and the foot.” Taekwondo has been widely considered one of the most effective kicking martial arts there is.

GETTING STARTED

New students are very seamlessly integrated into the program. We accomplish this by assuring that students receive a free uniform and a one-on-one introductory lesson, scheduled by appointment. We find it provides the student the advantage of heading onto the training floor with some knowledge, allowing for a smooth transition into the program.

TIMEFRAME

Classes are separated by age and level of experience. We also provide family classes where students of all ages and ranks may train together. After initial trial sessions, our program has four training levels.

White – White belt classes are slower in pace and meant to lay the groundwork for future training in the martial arts.

Approximate time: 2 months

Beginner – Intensity level increases as students learn and practice all basic blocking, striking, and kicking techniques. Breaking, limited sparring, and joint-locking/take down techniques are learned as well.

Approximate time: 10 months

Advanced – Intensity level increases further. Students learn and practice more advanced techniques and practical applications. Advanced take downs, throws, and joint- locking techniques are learned and practiced, as well as free sparring and breaking.

Approximate time: 18 months

Advanced – Intensity level increases further. Students learn and practice more advanced techniques and practical applications. Advanced take downs, throws, and joint- locking techniques are learned and practiced, as well as free sparring and breaking.
