Everyone has some idea of what  they would like to get from Taekwondo, and whether this is becoming more physically adapt or achieving  focus, confidence, or control, it is within reach, and it is transformative. Self-development is a result of purposely posing challenges to ourselves and overcoming them; we train with purpose, and we live with purpose.

Practice refers to both the physical act of practicing Taekwondo, as well as practicing patience, humility, and respect. We believe that Taekwondo in its purest form is a practice that can be extended to the entirely of life to bring out the best in who we are, and help us achieve the best of who we can be.

FAQ

01

What is Tae Kwon Do and how is it different from other martial arts?

The martial arts were developed thousands of years ago as forms of self-defense. Tae Kwon Do is the martial art developed in Korea. In terms of techniques, Tae Kwon Do emphasizes kicks more than other martial arts, making it ideal for improving balance, flexibility, and endurance.

02

At what age can kids start training Tae Kwon Do?

Our experience has shown that most children ages four and up are able to participate in Tae Kwon Do classes. At this age your child can take our trial lesson program, which allows our instructors to work with them one-on-one and evaluate their readiness for group classes.

03

Do martial arts increase aggressiveness?

Our instructors continually educate that martial arts are a form of exercise and self improvement, not a tool for bullying. Tae Kwon Do students are taught to be humble, courteous, and respectful along with being careful about when and where they practice their self-defense skills.

04

How safe is it to learn martial arts?

Tae Kwon Do is safe and fun for students of all ages and physical abilities. Classes are taught by expert instructors as students are shown techniques in a step-by-step manner at their own pace. A thorough stretching routine, matted flooring, and protective safety equipment are all part of our commitment to ensuring student safety.

05

What if I have never done martial arts before or if I'm out of shape?

Beginners are always welcome. Our beginner’s martial arts program makes it easy to get started. New students receive one-on-one instruction designed to provide an introduction to the basics of Tae Kwon Do. Plus, our belt system allows all students to train at their own pace and improve their physical condition gradually.
