Millions of people are having fun learning the discipline of Taekwondo. Taekwondo’s emphasis on kicking techniques gives students a great aerobic workout as well as improving their balance and coordination. These skills are great for kids and adults. Participants will also learn self-evaluation, resulting in the realization of the student’s physical, and more importantly, mental strengths and weaknesses. These, along with the increased self-discipline, will help students increase their level of confidence, which will be evident in their life outside of Taekwondo.
This class focuses on basic Taekwondo stances, blocks and strikes. Some semester goals include testing for a new rank and improving self control, balance, coordination, memory and strength. Ages 4-8.
