What is Taekwondo?

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art that has been developed and studied for more than two thousand years. Today, Taekwondo is practiced in over 120 countries with millions of students in the United States alone.

Now as an Olympic sport, Taekwondo has many advantages for children and adults alike. Our program is designed to bring out the very best in each student we teach, by developing improved coordination, balance, focus, and discipline, as well as practical means of self-defense. Through the training process the student tones, stretches, and strengthens the body for a healthier happier life.

Children with the tendency to bully other children learn to direct this kind of behavior into helping instead of hurting others. Where as children who are bullied, build the self confidence to stand up for themselves and handle the situation in a non-violent way. All this is learned through the mental aspect of the training, which is a major part of martial arts. Children learn discipline, respect, and concentration resulting in better school grades.
