For 5 - 9 year olds
Children in the Junior Taekwondo classes begin taking on challenges and tasks that require them to take action off the mat and outside the studio. These basic trials are opportunities for children to build their self-confidence as they begin to see that they can accomplish goals when they set their mind to it. Achieving these goals also gives them a chance to exemplify basic tenets like honesty, integrity, respect, humility, perseverance and self-control.
All students learn Poomsae, or form, certified by Kukkiwon, the World Taekwondo Headquarters in South Korea. These skills are recognized in competitions around the world and used by elite Taekwondo athletes. Techniques include kicking combination, Taekwondo sparring, musical basic motion, musical demonstration, self-defense, as well as nunchuck and Bo staff skills.
