The emphasis of our program is on establishing discipline and respect in your child. The structure of respect is built into Tae Kwon Do instruction, and also our program builds confidence and character by providing the child with control over his or her body and ability to stand up to peer pressure and other intimidating circumstances.
The awarding of the higher levels of belts in Tae Kwon Do belts gives the child a sense of achievement and accomplishment. It also helps them to learn what goal setting is all about. We keep this very much in mind. Because the length of time for achieving belts can be from two to six months, we award stripes on the belt as child progresses between levels.
Training for these tests and passing them, enhances the child’s ability to concentrate, plan for goals and triumph over “learning hurdles.” This is an excellent reinforcement of study habits for school.
Finally, Tae Kwon Do is good clean fun for kids. It helps them to channel their energy in a positive direction, enhancing their talents. Our goals, beliefs and values of our program is for all ages, but especially for the young, who can gain much benefit from Tae Kwon Do for the rest their lives!
