Teaching kids to stay focused is one of our specialties. From the very first class, your child will learn the importance of eye contact, posture, and active listening skills that will benefit them not only in Tae Kwon Do but at home, on the playing field, and of course at school. Both teachers and parents often notice the dramatic difference in children who study the martial arts. Tae Kwon Do students have an easier time staying on task, are more disciplined when it comes to homework and able to control the fidgeting and distracting habits that often take other children off track. The results are incredible. Your child will listen better at home, handle homework and chores more efficiently, and put more focus and effort into their schoolwork. Many children also enjoy begin receiving better grades.
Tae Kwon Do will provide your child with plenty of challenges and the tools to overcome them. You’ll be amazed at the difference just a few months of lessons will make in the way your child will feel about themselves and their abilities. The secret is our use of positive recognition. Our staff consistently use praise and positive feedback in every class to encourage students and motivate effort. Our belt system gives students mini-goals to strive for and teaches kids the power of goal setting. Special events such as belt testing and tournaments give students an opportunity to perform in front of others, further enhancing their self confidence and self-esteem.
If you are concerned that your child could use more physical activity, then you’re not alone. Many of today’s kids spend hours in front of TV’s, video games, and computer screens. As a result, few children get the level of activity they need to get and stay healthy. Tae Kwon Do can provide a much-needed physical boost. Kids of all ages improve their balance, coordination and motor skills. They also improve flexibility, strength and endurance, skills that will help them in other sports and make them more confident in their abilities. Best of all, Tae Kwon Do is a fun way to get in shape. Our enthusiastic instructors and high-energy classroom make learning enjoyable as well as rewarding. Your child will look forward to their classes and be eager to attend their classes!
