Classes are fun but very structured and are always taught with the safety and well-being of each child in mind. Emphasis is based on exercising and learning Tae Kwon Do techniques at each child’s specific rank in a positive environment where each student can grow at his or her own individual speed and learn according to his or her needs. In addition to the physical abilities children are taught that Tae Kwon Do is a defensive martial art. The meaning and importance of the five tenets of Tae Kwon Do are emphasized: Courtesy, Integrity, Perseverance, Self-Control, and Indomitable Spirit.
