ONLINE TRADITIONAL TAEKWON-DO (Ages 7+) via ZOOM

Our Zoom Studio

Tuesdays September-December 2020

Our  class has been brilliantly adapted for Zoom! This class modifies the curriculum of the Traditional Taekwon-Do Alliance (TTA) and the International Taekwondo Federation (ITF) to be practiced as a group. We've taken care to set up our studio so that at home students have a quality visual and audio experience; our games and drills have been selected for video format.  We encourage interaction between students so it replicates the in-person experience; it's NOTHING like a "home workout video"!    We  take full advantage of the video format to combine live classes with some video streaming where supplemental visual aids (different camera angles, diagrams) will help students learn. Online class is supplemented with required home-study (workouts and short videos). Students will focus on skills required to earn belt ranks and learn general self-defense awareness.  We will also hone our sparring skills so we're ready for contact sparring when we return to in-person class.  

  • Taekwon-Tenants: Courtesy, Integrity, Self Control, Perseverance, Indomitable Spirit

  • Kicking and Punching

  • Patterns/Forms (Tuls)

  • Non-Contact Sparring (due to limitations of online format)

  • Self Defense - awareness training

JR. WARRIORS (AGES 5-10)  -CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE DUE TO COVID-19

$80 per 4 month season (family discounts available)

 

A wonderful introduction to martial arts for kids 5-10 years old. 

Using a play- and games-based approach, we teach young children:

  • Life Skills: Listening, self-reliance, teamwork, organization, leadership, and responsibility

  • Cognitive Skills:  Memory, concentration

  • Taekwon-do Moral Culture: kindness, respect, self control, courtesy, honesty

  • Physical skills:  Fitness, coordination, gross motor development, introductory taekwon-do techniques

  • Body safety (including dangerous people, bullying, emergencies, and assertiveness)

 

The overall goal of this program is to provide a developmentally-appropriate and fun introduction to martial arts for young children, while also giving them practical life skills and the ability to evaluate potentially dangerous situations and make age-appropriate decisions.  We use games like "Simon Says"  and "Follow the Leader"  to help children sharpen their listening skills, self control, and more!  The program is designed to take up to 2 years, depending on the child.

We do NOT engage in traditional contact sparring during the Warrior class.    Non-contact "tag" or "capture the flag" type games are used to teach  the self control that will be needed  for sparring once they reach the appropriate age.  

 

Students who meet attendance requirements will be automatically promoted to the next "Jr. Stripe level" twice per season.  

 

Graduation: When they're ready, students will test up to yellow belt will be required to test on a Saturday testing with the "big class" at the end of the season, and will be eligible to join our regular traditional class.

*Kids under the age of 7 must have a  parent or guardian present during class (either as an observer or helper).
