Our Preschool program, Little Dragons, (ages 4 1/2 to 6) is a detailed curriculum that focuses on improving preschoolers’ basic motor and listening skills. These skills will help them enter society with a more confident and enthusiastic outlook. The Preschool program helps children improve their motor skills while emphasizing the importance of following directions and working with others in a positive way. While Dragons are learning skills necessary to transition to the junior program, they are also learning valuable skills which will help them at school, at home and in other sports. Dragons gain the confidence needed to be successful throughout their lives.
Our Junior Program (ages 6 - 11) offers children the opportunity to improve many of the skills necessary for team sports and helps them become better students both at school and at home.
Juniors will learn the martial art of Taekwondo and have fun doing it in a positive and safe environment. Improving a child’s self-esteem is an important part of helping him grow to be a great leader and member of society. Therefore, we offer positive encouragement and allow each student to work at his individual level. No student sits the bench because he’s not good enough.
We will help each student meet their short and long term goals. Students will learn to do their best at whatever they decide to do. Through the art of Taekwondo, juniors will improve their skills in many of the following areas:
- Coordination & Balance - The more coordinated your child is, the fewer injuries he will sustain. Your child will improve his hand-eye coordination. He will also improve his balance and develop better posture.
- Focus - This skill will help your child’s aim, listening abilities and reaction time. She will excel faster in any physical activity. Your child will also become a better listener and a more focused student in school.
- Discipline - Discipline is the key to a great education. Your child will learn to follow directions better and understand that his decisions have consequences.
- Fitness - It is important for your child to understand the importance of being both physically and mentally fit. The younger a child becomes physically active, the more apt she is to remain active and fit later in life.
Teens & Adults
Our Teen (ages 11 - 15) and Adult (ages 15 and up) Program is designed to offer students a fun way to exercise while learning the ancient art of Taekwondo. From warm-up to cool down, teens and adults will benefit from increased muscle strength, flexibility, and a positive outlook on life. Taekwondo offers teens and adults the opportunity to improve their physical and mental well-being while meeting other people who share similar goals in a non-competitive atmosphere.
Because every class offers something different, students do not become bored and are more likely to continue in their training than if they just joined the gym. We know that today’s teens face many challenges. Our teen program allows them to train hard and have fun under the influence of positive role models.
Our teens enjoy working out together, helping each other reach their goals and participate in a variety of fun social activities. As a means of achieving total physical fitness, controlling weight, or just adding an exciting new dimension to your life, training at Taekwondo America can give you a safe and professional environment for achieving your goals.
